English | 2013 | ISBN: 0415704251 | 266 pages | PDF + EPUB | 0,9 + 0,7 MB
Given Ulysses' perhaps unparalleled attention to the operations of the human mind, it is unsurprising that critics have explored the work's psychology. Nonetheless, there has been very little research that draws on recent cognitive science to examine thought & emotion in this novel. Hogan sets out to exp& our underst&ing of Ulysses, as well as our theoretical comprehension of narrative?& even our views of human cognition. He revises the main narratological accounts of the novel, clarifying the complex nature of narration & style. He extends his cognitive study to encompass the anti-colonial & gender concerns that are so obviously important to Joyce's work. Finally, through a combination of broad overviews & detailed textual analyses, Hogan seeks to make this notoriously difficult book more accessible to non-specialists.
