Empire and Pilgrimage in Conrad and Joyce

Agata Szczeszak-Brewer

University Press of Florida

The chapter offers a theoretical overview of different assumptions regarding pilgrimage toward the center and a preliminary discussion on the (im)possibility of arriving at a set objective. Pilgrimage prevalent in Conrad's and Joyce's texts is inextricable from a broader argument concerning power relations in societies affected by inequalities of race, gender, and class. Here individual and collective “pilgrimaging” is regarded as an unaccomplished pursuit of relief from uncertainty, alienation, and subordination.

Keywords:   theoretical overview, pilgrimage, Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, race, gender, class, pilgrimaging, uncertainty, alienation, subordination
