James Joyce left Ireland in 1904 in self-imposed exile. Though he
never permanently returned to Dublin, he continued to characterize
the city in his prose throughout the rest of his life. This volume
elucidates the ways Joyce wrote about his homeland with conflicting
bitterness and affection - a common ambivalence in expatriate
authors, whose time in exile tends to shape their creative approach
to the world. Yet this duality has not been explored in Joyce's
work until now. The first book to read Joyce's writing through the
lens of exile studies, James Joyce and the Exilic Imagination
challenges the tendency of scholars to stress the writer's negative
view of Ireland. Instead, it showcases the often-overlooked range
of emotional attitudes imbuing Joyce's work and produces a fuller
understanding of Joyce's canon.
