Inspired by the idea that Joyce's entire oeuvre can be seen as work in progress, the first part of the course will focus on Dubliners and analyse different aspects of his notion of paralysis as the central theme of the entire collection. In approaching the fictional procedures that Joyce uses in this early work, special emphasis will be given to the relationship between naturalistic and symbolic elements and to the use of free indirect style.
Further, the course will aim to look at Stephen Hero and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The development of the aesthetic consciousness of Stephen Dedalus is understood as his attempt to move away from the idealistic view-world and to embrace the materialistic one. Special emphasis will be given to Stephen's aesthetic theory at the end A Portrait.
Ulysses is approached in the light of its dialogue with Homer's Odyssey and its stylistic and linguistic complexity both in relation to Dubliners and A Portrait, as well as within Modernist literature.
