Cannibal Joyce

Thomas Jackson Rice

University Press of Florida

This chapter takes a different direction in looking at Joyce's Dubliners wherein it traces not only the cannibalization of the literary, pictorial, and music working in this work but also the conjunctions that emerged from the mathematical substratum in Joyce's works wherein his aesthetics continue to cannibalize and interrogate through his three major works. This chapter concentrates on Joyce's incorporation of the Pythagorean tradition of music into his texts and particularly in his evolving sense of the relations among language, music, and mathematics wherein rather than enacting the historical, he overleaps to cultural transition from classic to romantic and shifts from the classical temperament of his early works to postmodernism.

Keywords:   Joyce, cannibalization, aesthetics, Pythagorean tradition, language, music, mathematics, postmodernism
