James Joyce and the Revolt of Love : Marriage, Adultery, Desire Hardback
by J. Utell
Part of the New Directions in Irish and Irish American Literature series
This study examines the representation of marital and extramarital relations in James Joyce's texts, with reference to context and to Joyce's biography.
Utell claims that Joyce uses these relations to imagine a different kind of love, one based in a radical acceptance and a rejection of a utilitarian and sexually repressive stance towards marriage.
