Joyce, Medicine, and Modernity, Hardback Book

Joyce, Medicine, and Modernity Hardback


A comprehensive assessment of the influence Joyce's interest in medicine had on his work.

This is the first sustained study of Joyce's artistic uses of turn-of-the-century medical discourses.

It balances close readings of Joyce's major texts with thorough archival research into late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century medical debates.

The result is a fascinating book that details the ways in which Joyce reconciled, integrated, and blurred the boundaries between scientific and humanist learning.
