Abstract

Abstract:

The readings of silence and silences in Joyce's work advanced in the essay collection James Joyce's Silences (2018) demonstrate that the interpenetration of silence and speech in Joyce sustains important questions about the limits of language. The maintenance and imposition of silence in tension with articulated language effect complex interventions with respect to the cultural and political significance of discourse. The question of interpretation as a movement of translation soliciting the silent text into speech is central in the way Joyce scholars understand the resonance of silence as implicit communication.
