James Overman: Joyce reading Nietzsche -- Ecce auctor: self-creation in A portrait of the artist as a young man -- Aufhebung baby: auto-genesis and alterity in Ulysses -- Joyce's multifarious styles in Ulysses -- Also sprach Molly Bloom -- The gay science of Finnegans wake
This is the first book-length treatment of James Joyce's multiplicity of styles through the work of Friedrich Nietzsche, the pre-eminent philosopher of style and perspectivism. Sam Slote argues that the range of styles Joyce deploys throughout his works has an ethical dimension. Rather than an influence study, this book concerns Joyce's engagement with issues and problems that are central throughout Nietzsche's works. Ultimately, the intersection between Joyce and Nietzsche raises questions of epistemology, aesthetics, ethics and the construction of the 'Modern' and thus should be of interest to a wide range of readers and scholars
