9780813013961: Joyce and Popular Culture (Florida James Joyce)

"Gathers together impressive, prominent voices in the field of Joycean studies and popular culture. . . . I was impressed by the elegance with which I was introduced to the idea that Tom Swifties, Marilyn Monroe, and electronic media all have something to offer to the study of Joyce (and vice versa). . . . Delightful new materials. . . . All Joyceans will want to own this volume. . . . Those interested in popular culture per se will also have to see what's happening now in the Joycean arena."--Cheryl Herr, University of Iowa
Joyce not only used popular culture, he contributed to it. These essays employ a variety of sophisticated critical techniques to bring out his surprising involvement in the popular culture of his time. Treating all of Joyce's work from Dubliners through Finnegans Wake, they question the conventional idea that popular culture is the inverse of modernist high art, showing instead how popular culture intertwines with modernist (and postmodernist) art. In a general historical introduction, R. B. Kershner the entire question of Joyce and popular culture within the context of Joyce criticism and the cultural studies movement.
