Sinopsis

J is for Joyce. From its chronicling of youthful days at Clongowes Wood school to the radical questioning of all convention and the desire 'to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race,' James Joyce's highly autobiographical A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man portrays Stephen Dedalus in his Dublin upbringing. In doing so, it provides an oblique self-portrait of young Joyce himself. At its center lie questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. Exuberantly inventive in style, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man subtly and beautifully orchestrates the patterns of quotation and repetition instrumental in its hero's quest to create his own character, his own language, life and art: 'to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use—silence, exile, and cunning.'

    Since Antiquity, the idea of the artist as a magician, trickster and powerful creator of new realities has established itself as a fertile idea in the discussion of image-making. The conjuring of illusions, the inherent link between the material and the spiritual and the wish to make the invisible visible are all part of this wider discourse. Visions of Enchantment looks at the...

    Manson, Mark
    We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it's ever been—we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked—the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we ...

    When Flemish engraver and publisher Theodore de Bry issued the first volume of his America series in 1590, the New World was, for most Europeans, truly novel. Gleaned from the travel accounts of adventurers like Thomas Harriot, Sir Francis Drake, and Sir Walter Raleigh, De Bry's magnificent engravings brought the new continent and its inhabitants to an enraptured audience acros...

    Aunque fue publicada en 1914, Dublineses había sido concluida nueve años antes, en 1905, mas el retraso de su aparición pública no había sido voluntario. Dos editores y un impresor pusieron reiteradas objeciones a la obra por cuestiones morales, y Joyce se había resistido tenazmente a aceptar sus modificaciones. No obstante, esos nueve años sirvieron para que el autor revisara ...

  • Ulises
    Joyce, James
    Ulises (1922) es un hito señero en la historia no solo de la literatura universal, sino de la mente humana. Supone la toma de conciencia de que la vida mental humana no se da sino en forma de lenguaje —palabras, gramática, melodía de la frase—. La «palabra interior» aparece aquí, a trechos, al descubierto, pero, aun siendo la línea más llamativa en Ulises, es solo una entre otr...

    El "Ulises" de James Joyce, desde su publicación en 1922 por la librería Shekespeare and Company de París, tuvo una azarosa vida, en la que su rasgo más característico fue su prohibición a entrar legalmente en los países de habla inglesa y, lógicamente, a ser editado en Inglaterra y Estados Unidos, bajo la acusación de atentar contra la moral pública. Sin embargo, mereció tambi...

  • Finnegans Wake

    Having done the longest day in literature with his monumental Ulysses, James Joyce set himself even greater challenges for his next book — the night.“A nocturnal state…That is what I want to convey: what goes on in a dream, during a dream.” The work, which would exhaust two decades of his life and the odd resources of some sixty languages, culminated in the 1939 publication of ...
