Obiettivi

Joyce and the Irish Postcolonial
Joyce’s rejection of and exile from Catholic Ireland was part of what was going to be a lifetime quest for independence. However, his problem of being a writer outside of his native country and culture is not only a linguistic and formal experiment, but also a political issue. In this respect, his mature work, and, above all, Ulysses, can be placed within the cultural contest for political authority within the modern world and thus associated to the subaltern response to hegemonic normality, to the uneven development and the differential, disadvantaged histories of colonized nations. Gramsci’s hegemony implies a relation between the narratives that constitute our world and power: with his oeuvre Joyce raises a series of complex questions about class, nation, gender and identity which, from a subaltern perspective, tend to confound, challenge and eventually dislodge the mundane appearance of everyday life in Dublin in order to expose and overcome the hegemonic discourse which fosters it.
