This incisive and original study of James Joyce's work explores Joyce's vivid fictional treatment of Irish historical writing, especially in Finnegans Wake. Linking Joyce's work to current historical criticism, recent Irish historiography and antiquarianism, and the Catholic providential history of Vico's New Science, Hofheinz shows how Joyce used historical sources to illuminate deep and prevalent human problems in the modern era of Ireland. The book raises questions central to Irish identity in cultural, social, familial, and psychological terms.

Review:

"...a valuable contribution to the growing list of works on Joyce and history....Hofheinz is not satisfied with merely providing a closely argued assessment of a major author's use of historical sources. Rather, he demonstrates how Finnegans Wake models the deceptions inherent in all history-making thereby cautioning readers to examine their own assumptions regarding the causes, effects and particulars of historical events." Mary Lowe-Evans, English Literature in Transition 1880-1920

"In an essay that achieves an admirable balance between theoretical, historical and interpretive material, Hofheinz argues for a reading of Joyce's novel as 'a cipher for the modern Irish historical predicament'....The result is a reading of Finnegans Wake that is both dazzling and informative...a reading of Finnegans Wake that is both dazzling and informative, and among the finest expositions of Vico's importance to Joyce...I know. " Journal of English and Germanic Philology

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This incisive study of James Joyce s work examines Finnegans Wake as a narrative response to acute problems of historical experience, especially issues of modern Irish identity implicit in historical writing about Ireland. Thomas C. Hofheinz shows how Joyce s narrative simulations of such problems enabled him to form startling linkages between public and private, objective and subjective Irish history. Hofheinz investigates Joyce s illumination of a wide range of issues - social, cultural, familial, psychological - by comparing Finnegans Wake with traditions of modern Irish historicism and historiography, including Ireland s place in the Catholic providential history of Vico s New Science; and he trenchantly challenges cultural-material methods of interpreting Joyce s historical subject , countering them with a reader-response philosophy owing much to the hermeneutics of Gadamer, Iser, and Ricoeur.
