Religione e arte in Newman e Joyce

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Religion and art in Newman and Joyce

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] This contribution aims to analyze and systematize some textual, literary and cultural points of contact that link the work of James Joyce (1882-1941) to that of John Henry Newman (1801-1890) through the reinterpretation of Drama and Life (1901), Joyce gave a speech on Art on January 10, 1900 at the Literary and Historical Society of the University College of Dublin. The Joyciano text will be placed in relation to some Newmanian literary theory writings to trace assonances, similarities and divergences, structural and content, in the two authors' philosophical-aesthetic thinking, especially to free the Joycian art from certain ideological concretions and preliminary rulings that "portray Joyce as an ultramodernist enemy of the literary tradition, as an individualist reluctant towards any community, as a mocking cosmopolitan of his national roots, as an atheist enemy of any religious experience, et al.".
