Modernism Module, Fall 2003

  • "The Twentieth Century" (anthology 1991)

  • James Joyce, "Eveline" (anthology 2277) and "Clay" (anthology 2280) from Dubliners (1914)

    • The Modern World, which produces excellent author pages, has an extensive one devoted to Joyce.

    • R.L. Callahan of Temple maintains Work in Progress, an excellent Joyce site including articles, maps of Joyce's Dublin, and much more.

    • Edward J. Maloney and David F. Fanning of Ohio State maintain the James Joyce Resource Center, with a bibliography of books, a timeline, and "casebooks" of references to Joyce scholarship grouped by critical approach.

    • Yet another very good site: The James Joyce Portal

Prepare a comment or question for the post-lecture discussion.
