No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A translation by Sally A. J. Purcell of "L'exil de James Joyce ou l'art du remplacement" (Grasset, 1968). "This extraordinary and brilliant book is a study in depth of James Joyce's art and life, Hélène Cixous shows and shows convincingly, that Joyce's consciousness was his biography and his biography wrote his books. Although this is the work of one woman, the impact is so great that one could easily believe it was written by linguists, lovers, Bishops, devils, psychologists, conjurers, comedians, saints, and members of Joyce's family, locked in a room and told they would not be released until the book was finished. The book is illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photographs of Joyce by Robert Kastor." (Dust jacket text)
