Beschreibung:

In Joyce's Modernist Allegory Stephen Sicari suggests that James Joyce's famous experiments with style and technique throughout Ulysses constitute a series of attempts to find a language adequate to his purposes -- a language capable of representing an ideal of behavior for the modern world. Addressing Joyce's use of lucid and powerful naturalistic prose in the opening episodes of Ulysses only to abandon such writing as insufficient to his aims, Sicari underlines Joyce's conviction that the novel, constrained by space and time, can end only in death. As a result Joyce begins to play with language, exposing the limitations of the novel as a genre and opening up new possibilities for prose fiction. In this volume Sicari shows how, episode by episode, Joyce tests style after style, voice after voice, in search of an effective way to present his Christian ideal of behavior.
