Catholic Nostalgia in Joyce and Company

Mary Lowe-Evans

University Press of Florida

This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the influence of Catholic nostalgia on the works of Irish author James Joyce. This book identifies the specific Catholic rituals and devotions that caused a nostalgic reaction in Joyce and suggests that his depiction of Catholic issues in his work has inspired in his readers an enduring admiration for institutional Catholicism. It also explores the influence of Joyce on subsequent writers, including Flannery O'Connor and Thomas Merton.

Keywords:   James Joyce, Catholic nostalgia, Catholic rituals, Catholic devotions, institutional Catholicism, Flannery O'Connor, Thomas Merton
