Joyce and Militarism

Greg Winston

University Press of Florida

This chapter reads the literal and metaphorical militarism of the Dubliners stories “Counterparts” and “The Dead” against the backdrop of imperial occupation and armed resistance movements Joyce experienced during his time in Ireland, Italy, and Austria-Hungary. Themes of domestic repression and physical abuse, generally at the hands of dominating father figures, are central to notions of overbearing or corrupted patriarchy at the levels of household and nation. The theme persists in Ulysses’ overt critique of the English socio-political concept of the public police.

Keywords:   James Joyce, Dubliners, Ulysses, Police, British Army, Ireland, Militarism, William Blackstone
