Uniting Catholic Ireland and Protestant Ireland was a central idea of the "Irish Revival," a literary and cultural manifestation of Irish nationalism that began in the 1890s and continued into the early twentieth century. Yet many of the Revival's Protestant leaders, including W. B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, and John Synge, failed to address the profound cultural differences that made uniting the two Irelands so problematic, while Catholic leaders of the Revival, particularly the journalist D. P. Moran, turned the movement into a struggle for greater Catholic power.

This book fully explores James Joyce's complex response to the Irish Revival and his extensive treatment of the relationship between the "two Irelands" in his letters, essays, book reviews, and fiction up to Finnegans Wake. Willard Potts skillfully demonstrates that, despite his pretense of being an aloof onlooker, Joyce was very much a part of the Revival. He shows how deeply Joyce was steeped in his whole Catholic culture and how, regardless of the harsh way he treats the Catholic characters in his works, he almost always portrays them as superior to any Protestants with whom they appear. This research recovers the historical and cultural roots of a writer who is too often studied in isolation from the Irish world that formed him.

About the Author:

Willard Potts is Professor Emeritus of English at Oregon State University.

Review:

"Potts' book is in effect a new view of the Irish Revival as a socioreligious cultural phenomenon. It is well and clearly written and the argument is well supported by citations from Joyce's own work and works by his contemporaries... I strongly recommend it." Robert Tracy, Professor of English and Celtic Studies, University of California, Berkeley "This important new study of Joyce ... contains innovative discussions of Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist, and Ulysses as well as Exiles."--Irish Studies Review, Vol 10, No. 2, 2002
