Joyce and Militarism

Greg Winston

University Press of Florida

This chapter considers how Joyce's work helped imagine the demilitarization of Dublin, through a process of re-appropriation that continues a century later. Joyce's fiction commenced a re-visioning of public space, architecture, and monuments in early twentieth-century Dublin. Commencing in the Martello Tower, a former army signal station and gun battery, Ulysses effects a symbolic re-invasion of Ireland from Joyce's Parisian exile. “Cyclops” features allusions to the destructive effects of the 1916 Easter Rising on the Dublin cityscape. As twenty-first century Dublin continues its own rapid redefinition of urban space, the city also redefines itself in relation to Joyce's public image and literary contribution, and doing so, reclaims Joyce and redefines Irish cultural identity for the new century.
