From the Cosmogonic Discourse to Sacred Secularism in Joyce's Imagined Community

(p.53) 3 “A free lay church in a free lay state”
Empire and Pilgrimage in Conrad and Joyce

Agata Szczeszak-Brewer

University Press of Florida

The chapter explores Joyce's texts and analyzes the subjects of cosmogonic discourse and sacred secularism in his community. Joyce's texts, with the help of their reflection of modernist obsession with fragmentation of space, depict not only artificial binarisms inbuilt in colonial as well as religious hegemony but also as an attempt for reclaiming national identity in colonial Ireland as modern forms of a cosmogonic drive.

Keywords:   James Joyce, cosmogonic discourse, sacred secularism, artificial binarisms, religious hegemony, colonial Ireland
