Sheds new mild on James Joyce's use of sexual motifs as cultural uncooked fabric for Ulysses and different works

Joyce/Foucault: Sexual Confessions examines situations of sexual confession in works of James Joyce, with a unique emphasis on Portrait of the Artist as a tender Man and Ulysses. utilizing Michel Foucault's historic research of Western sexuality as its theoretical underpinning, the booklet foregrounds the function of the Jesuit order within the unfold of a confessional strength, and reveals this impression inscribed into Joyce's significant texts. Wolfgang Streit is going directly to argue that the stress among the texts' erotic passages and Joyce's feedback of even his personal sexual writing energizes Joyce's narratives-and allows Joyce to strengthen the novel skepticism of strength printed in his work.

Wolfgang Streit is Lecturer, Ludwig Maximilians collage, Munich.
