The book presents a fresh look at two modernist writers, Joseph Conrad and James Joyce, revealing how their rejection of organized religion and the colonial presence in their native countries allowed them to destabilize traditional notions of power, colonialism, and individual freedom in their texts. The book identifies many parallels between the two authors' political and religious formations and also focuses on the way in which both Conrad and Joyce expose the dichotomies prevalent in the official discourse created and owned by Western hegemonic establishment. The book also tackles the possibility of a successful teleological project present in Conrad's and Joyce's fiction.

Keywords:   Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, rejection of religion, colonial presence, power, colonialism, dichotomies, teleological project
