James Joyce, Sexuality and Social Purity by Katherine Mullin

Book Description

In James Joyce, Sexuality and Social Purity, Katherine Mullin offers a richly detailed account of Joyce's lifelong battle against censorship. Through prodigious archival research, Mullin shows Joyce responding to Edwardian ideologies of social purity by accentuating the 'contentious' or 'offensive' elements in his work. The censorious ambitions of the social purity movement, Mullin claims, feed directly into Joyce's writing. Paradoxically, his art becomes dependent on the very forces that seek to constrain and neutralize its revolutionary force. Acutely conscious of the dangers censorship presented to publication, Mullin shows Joyce revenging himself by energetically ridiculing purity campaigns throughout his fiction. Ulysses, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Dubliners all meticulously subvert purity discourse, as Joyce pastiches both the vice crusaders themselves and the imperilled 'Young Persons' they sought to protect. This important book will change the way Joyce is read and offers crucial insights into the sexual politics of Modernism.

Books By Author Katherine Mullin

New Grub Street by Katherine Mullin New Grub Street, Paperback (September 2016)

New Grub Street (1891), generally regarded as Gissing's finest novel, is the story of the daily lives and broken dreams of men and women forced to earn a living by the pen. It tells of a group of novelists, journalists, and scholars caught in the literary and cultural crisis that hit Britain in the closing years of the nineteenth century.

Working Girls by Katherine Mullin Working Girls, Hardback (May 2016)

Working Girls offers a cultural and literary history of telegraphists, typists, shop-girls, and barmaids. It argues that these occupations helped to shape a distinctively new identity for emancipated young women, and explores how authors used this to navigate a precarious literary landscape.

Framley Parsonage by Katherine Mullin Framley Parsonage, Paperback (November 2014)

The Revd Mark Robarts puts his future and his family in peril when he guarantees the debts of an unscrupulous MP. The romantic hopes of Mark's sister Lucy are also dependent on the goodwill of Mark's offended patroness, mother of Lucy's suitor. Trollope's fourth Barchester novel, Framley Parsonage remains one of his most popular stories.

Duke's Children by Katherine Mullin Duke's Children, Paperback (August 2011)

The death of his beloved wife leaves the Duke of Omnium, former Primer Minister, struggling to impose his will on his three children: in debt, and in love with unsuitable marriage partners, they seek to go their own way, and the novel explores family conflict, principle, and the conquering power of love. The last in the superb Palliser series.
