This collection of essays offers an original look at Joyce's writing by placing his language at the intersection of various critical perspectives: linguistics, philosophy, feminism, psychoanalysis, postcolonialism and intertextuality. Combining detailed textual analysis and theoretically informed study, an international team of leading scholars explores how Joyce's experiments with language repeatedly challenge our ways of reading. Drawing on current debates in Joyce scholarship, literary studies and critical theory, this volume comprehensively examines the critical diversity of Joyce's use of language.
