Appeared in Choice on 2005-05-01:
These 13 first-rate essays by prominent and gifted Joyce scholars are themselves testimony to the volume's contention that James Joyce scholarship continues vigorously and inventively in the postmodern era. The book covers a wide range of topics. Some of the essays take radically new positions on perennial issues--such as Anne Fogarty's thesis that Wandering Rocks presents an unfurling history rather than a static critique of the status quo in Dublin 1904--but all are fresh and provocative. For example, Mary Lowe-Evans shows how the Sacred Heart Devotion operates as the puppeteer behind the collusion of imperialist church and state. The introductory essay, summarizing each of the essays in the collection, highlights the degree to which Joycean scholarship is breaking new ground. The volume is dedicated to Zack Bowen, who contributes one of the essays. Bowen has served as president of both the James Joyce Society of New York and the International James Joyce Foundation. ^BSumming Up: Recommended. Graduate and research collections. P. D.

Summaries
Description for Bookstore
"The diversity of issues in this collection is more than ample testimony not only to the continuing popularity of James Joyce but also to the seemingly endless fascination he generates in novel critical ways in which his work may be profitably addressed. If Joyce studies in the 21st century are as diverse and rewarding as the splendid essays compiled by Ellen Carol Jones and Morris Beja, there is no end in sight as to what possibilities Joyce will offer his readers."--from the foreword by Zack Bowen By showing Joyce's continued relevance to literary scholarship in the new century, Twenty-First Joycepreviews the future of James Joyce studies. The essays feature Joycean takes on various types of literary criticism, including linguistics, comparative studies, translation, and aesthetics. Some of the foremost Joycean scholars provide particularly strong examples of the value of cultural and comparative studies brought to bear on his work, and they demonstrate the extent to which James Joyce has affected and influenced our cultural, political, historical, social, and artistic awareness in the past century and his relevance and significance for the present.
