By Wolfgang Streit
Joyce/Foucault: Sexual Confessions examines circumstances of sexual confession in works of James Joyce, with a distinct 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 ebook 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 enhance the unconventional skepticism of energy printed in his work.
