Joyce on the Threshold (Florida James Joyce)
This collection of fourteen essays explores Joyce’s work in relation to the theme of liminality, the tendency of Joyce’s writing to straddle borders and explore the margins of sexuality, genre, nationality, and language. The four sections of the book consider, in turn, the unusual power of peripheral or marginal elements in Joyce’s writing; Joyce’s liminal identity as an Irish writer, working from a position of exile and in uncertain relation to the English literary tradition; his engagement with developments that define the transition to modernity and modernism; and the special importance in Joyce studies of questions traditionally regarded as marginal in relation to the critic’s main task.
