Celebrating the Sacred in Ordinary Life : James Joyce and the Renaissance Magus Hardback
by Tom Absher
Part of the Studies on Themes and Motifs in Literature series
This book is an introductory examination of the Hermetic tradition in the Renaissance and how James Joyce made use of certain of its salient features in his four works of fiction: Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses, and Finnegans Wake.
This book makes a useful contribution to literary studies of Joyce's work as well as introductory cultural studies of the Hermetic tradition, its philosophy and important figures, like Marsilio Ficino and Giordano Bruno.
