University Press of Florida

This chapter focuses on how James Joyce consumes the body of world literary culture to nourish his own works wherein although his works were often cast in the metaphor of cannibalism they remained well within the traditional readings of the fictions. In this chapter, the focus is on his consumption of classical literature and popular culture. His fondness of consuming “high” culture and his capacity for incorporation is examined in this chapter.

Keywords:   James Joyce, world literary culture, cannibalism, classical literature, popular culture, high culture, allusion
