University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses the introduction and the cultural transfer of film, radio and television which created an anxiety in Joyce' response toward sound recording wherein he saw this new communication means as a threat to the power of literature to engage its readers. In this chapter, the focus is centered on his ambivalent response to both motion pictures and radio — technologies which he likewise cannibalized to his advantage in his books Ulysses and Finnegans Wake wherein he saw both as forms of communication inferior to literature in terms of their abilities to actively engage the critical consciousness of their consumers.
