FAIRHALL, James. James Joyce and the Question of History. (Cambridge): Cambridge University Press, (1995). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (8),ix-xiv,1-290. 8vo, illustrated white card covers. "This study of James Joyce's fiction as a response to Irish and European history exemplifies Frederic Jameson's injunction 'Always historicize!' James Fairhall examines the effects of colonialism, nationalism, and World War I on Joyce's work; and he explores significant absences in his treatment of women, the lower classes, and the Irish countryside. He maintains that Joyce's great problem was his desire to transcend the aritst's subject position within history. Joyce responds tothe difficulties of being an artist in ireland by going into self-exile; b ut in his work he grappled increasingly with the constraints of all history, any history. Drawing on a wide range of critical theories Fairhall arguesthat Joyce opened up seemingly closed possiblities by destabilizing the bo undary between history and fiction, and the notion of an undivided subject." - from the introductory blurb.

"The Ruin of Representation in Modernist Artand Texts investiggates the semiotics of literature and the visual arts, f ocusing on the influence of modem art on the writings ond aesthetic theories of James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, the English vorricists and the Russian futurists. This comparative study analyzes the the strategies and theories ofabstraction in the arts as they affected literary texts like Ulysses. The innovations that resulted from attempts to abolish representational conventions include: multiplication of point of view; fragmentation and collage; the exploration of random or uconscious operations; and the introduction of new temporal and spatial forms. Isaak further investigates the ideological implications of these formal innovations, showing, for example, how Stein'spoetry critiques patriarchal language. Distguished literary critic Hugh Ke nner affirms that her "clarification, making use of the best poststructuralist methods, will be helpful to all future historians of the English-language avant-garde in the first third of the century"."

18 BEACH, Sylvia JOYCE, James Shakespeare and Company. First Edition in dustjacket.
Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York, 1959, 1959 
BEACH, Sylvia. Shakespeare and Company. New York : Harcourt, Brace and Company, (1959). First Edition. Pp (8),ix-xvi,(2),3-230,(2) + 16 pages of b&w photo illustrations. With a few other illustrations in the text. 8vo, tan cloth, blue lettering to spine.

Sylvia Beach, née Nancy Woodbridge Beach (b. March 14, 1887, Baltimore – d. October 5, 1962, Paris).

"Sylvia Beach made literary history when, in 1922, she published James Joyce's Ulysses - then banned in every English-speaking country in the world - under the imprint of Shakespeare and Company, her American bookshop on the Left Bank. Not only Joyce, but most of the writers who were to make the twenties famous were then converging on Paris to live and work. They were all customers and callers at Shakespeare and Company, and the little bookshop at 12 rue de l'Odéon became the humming center of the most significant literary movement of our century.

James Joyce is an important figure in Miss Beach's story. But he is only one of the distinguished and often merry company of writers and artists who come to life in this enchanting book. Here are vivid, informal portraits of Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, George Antheil, Bryher, Gertrude Stein, Sherwood Anderson, Scott Fitzgerald; and of the French writers who were also Miss Beach's friends and supporters - Paul Valéry, André Giide. Jules Romains. and many others.

Shakespeare and Company is a unique record, written with gusto, humor and affection, of an important chapter in literary history. And from it emerges the portrait, unpremeditated, of a delightful American in Paris, Miss Beach herself." - front dj flap.
