Joyce's Revenge

History, Politics, and Aesthetics in Ulysses

Andrew Gibson

This eminently learned book transforms our understanding of Joyce's Ulysses by placing the novel firmly in the historical context of Anglo-Irish political and cultural relations in the period 1880-1920. Gibson argues that Ulysses is a great work of liberation that also takes a complex form of revenge on the colonizer's culture.
