Who's Afraid of James Joyce?

Karen R. Lawrence

University Press of Florida

This chapter considers the way Joyce himself haunts the imaginations of writers who come after him, crossing geographic and temporal borders, and the way they are both hospitable and inhospitable to this daunting precursor. Brigid Brophy, a writer who is half-Irish and half-English, is a “compalien” of Joyce, identifying him as her Irish, modernist precursor, father of linguistic experiment and gender bending, yet whose overbearing power must be resisted as well. In a very different register, this chapter, co-authored with Paul Saint-Amour, explores the difficulty of closing the “case” on hospitality between Mrs Sinico and Mr Duffy in “A Painful Case.” The thematics of hospitality in the story are historically charged by Dublin's status as an occupied city. As it explores gestures of welcome and rejection represented in the story, the chapter also regards gestures of appeal to its reader.

Keywords:   Joyce, hospitable, inhospitable, Brigid Brophy, Paul Saint-Amour
