  • Correction

MFS deeply regrets the printing error in Trevor L. Williams' "Resistance to Paralysis in Dubliners," in the Special Issue of Modern Fiction Studies on "Feminist Readings of Joyce," 35:3 (Autumn 1989): 454-455. In correcting a space in the page proofs, the printer dropped a line from the sentence and incorrectly inserted a line from page 457. The passage on 454-455 should read as follows:

Just as Gabriel fails to see any connection between literature and politics, so he fails to see that there are connections between ownership in the economic sphere and the reproduction of ownership patterns within the private sphere. The last few pages, in which Gabriel attempts to negotiate his lust into Gretta's consciousness, emphasize his sense of ownership and power over her:

He had felt proud and happy then, happy that she was his. . . . (D 215)

He longed to be master of her strange mood. (D 217)

He longed to . . . crush her body against his, to overmaster her. (D 217)

Now that she had fallen to him so easily. . . . (D 218) [End Page 886]
