Revisiting Poststructuralist Joyce
My concern is with the mutual influence of fiction and criticism: with the idea that Joyce influenced poststructuralist critics, and with the logical relation between a text and its reading which emerges from poststructuralist engagements with Joyce. This revisit is a return to these questions as formulated in the essays of Attridge and Ferrer’s 1984 volume Post-Structuralist Joyce, and as they have revisited us in Derrida’s reading of Ulysses, which, though written in 1984, did not reach the Anglo-American world until the publication of James Joyce: The Augmented Ninth in 1988 and its inclusion in Attridge’s Acts of Literature in 1992.
