Catholic Nostalgia in Joyce and Company

This chapter examines the influence of James Joyce's Catholic nostalgia on Anglo-American Catholic writer Thomas Merton. It explains that though Merton had no Catholic childhood, no Catholic mother, and no Catholic home to arouse nostalgia for the trappings of Catholicism, he became a cloistered monk, a priest, and, arguably, the most influential Catholic writer of the twentieth century. It describes the traces of Joyce's influence on Merton's works including his autobiography The Seven Storey Mountain.

Keywords:   James Joyce, Thomas Merton, Catholic nostalgia, Catholic writer, Catholicism
