All of Derrida’s texts on Joyce together under one cover in fresh, new translations, along with key essays covering the range of Derrida’s engagement with Joyce’s works. Bringing together all of Jacques Derrida’s writings on James Joyce, this volume includes the first complete translation of his book Ulysses Gramophone: Two Words for Joyce as well as the first translation of the essay “The Night Watch.” In Ulysses Gramophone, Derrida provides some of his most thorough reflections on affirmation and the “yes,” the signature, and the role of technological mediation in all of these areas. In “The Night Watch,” Derrida pursues his ruminations on writing in an explicitly feminist direction, offering profound observations on the connection between writing and matricide. Accompanying these texts are nine essays by leading scholars from across the humanities addressing Derrida’s treatments of Joyce throughout his work, and two remembrances of lectures devoted to Joyce that Derrida gave in 1982 and 1984. The volume concludes with photographs of Derrida from these two events.

Derrida and the Inheritance of Democracy provides a theoretically rich and accessible account of Derrida's political philosophy. Demonstrating the key role inheritance plays in Derrida’s thinking, Samir Haddad develops a general theory of inheritance and shows how it is essential to democratic action. He transforms Derrida’s well-known idea of "democracy to come" into active engagement with democratic traditions. Haddad focuses on issues such as hospitality, justice, normativity, violence, friendship, birth, and the nature of democracy as he reads these deeply political writings.

This volume of conversation not only provides a succinct philosophical biography that highlights the wide range of Attridge’s interests. It likewise foregrounds his energetic engagements with literary theory, poetics, and stylistics, as well as his reassessments of contemporary philosophy and literary ideas, specifically those pertaining to the work Jacques Derrida, James Joyce, and J. M. Coetzee. Readers will find in this book a wonderful balancing act as Attridge negotiates the dynamics between the orthodoxies of critical practice and the strategic interventions of deconstructive reading. This book, with an appendix of a chronological listing of Attridge’s publications, is an accessible and provocative introduction to the ideas of one of the most brilliant critical voices and generous presences in literary studies in the Anglophone world.

This collection of essays reconsiders aspects of Irish studies through the medium of literary and cultural theory. The author looks at the negotiations between texts and their contexts and then analyses how the writer both reflects and transforms aspects of his or her cultural milieu. The essays examine literary texts by W. B. Yeats, Seamus Heaney, James Joyce and Sean O'Faolain; media texts such as "Father Ted," "American Beauty" and a series of Guinness advertisements; as well as cultural and political contexts such as globalisation, religion, the Provisional IRA and media treatment of murders in Ireland. The author also looks at aspects of the postcolonial and feminist paradigms and makes use of a theoretical matrix based on the work of Jacques Derrida and Jacques Lacan."

"The first full-length study of Jacques Derrida's criticism based upon the works of James Joyce. It is a brilliantly explicated study, clearly written, and eminently sensible. It will be the last word on the subject for years to come."--Zack Bowen, University of Miami This book analyzes Derrida's uses of Joyce within his own work and demonstrates how Joyce's writings operate deconstructively. The complex and tantalizing relationship between the two men has intrigued Joyceans and Derrideans alike. Alan Roughley here offers remarkable readings of both Joyce and Derrida texts, in particular of Finnegans Wake and Glas. Exploring how Joyce's ghost haunts many of Derrida's major writings, Roughley concentrates on two areas: how Derrida reads Joyce and sees his work as deconstructive and how English-speaking Joyceans have made use of Derrida's theories. Long overdue, this is the first major comprehensive study of the relationship between Joyce and Derrida. It demonstrates specific ways in which the major works of one of the century's most important literary writers are some of the most powerful forces in the work of the century's most complex and controversial theorist. It will appeal to Joyceans of all persuasions, including anti-Derrideans, and to anyone with an interest in philosophy and contemporary theory. Alan Roughley is a research fellow at the University of York in the United Kingdom. He is the author of James Joyce and Critical Theory: An Introduction and Infernal Cinders: An Assemblage of Contemporary Writings, and the founding co-editor of Hypermedia Joyce, an international electronic journal of Joyce studies.

In Joyce, Derrida, Lacan and the Trauma of History, Christine van Boheemen-Saaf examines the relationship between Joyce's postmodern textuality and the traumatic history of colonialism in Ireland. Joyce's influence on Lacanian psychoanalysis and Derrida's philosophy, Van Boheemen-Saaf suggests, ought to be viewed from a postcolonial perspective. She situates Joyce's writing as a practice of indirect 'witnessing' to a history that remains unspeakable. The loss of a natural relationship to language in Joyce calls for a new ethical dimension in the process of reading. The practice of reading becomes an act of empathy to what the text cannot express in words. In this way, she argues, Joyce's work functions as a material location for the inner voice of Irish cultural memory. This book engages with a wide range of contemporary critical theory and brings Joyce's work into dialogue with thinkers such as Zizek, Adorno, Lyotard, as well as feminism and postcolonial theory.

How is meaning in one text shaped by another? Does intertextuality consist of more than simple references by one text to another? This work explores these questions through a comparative study of James Joyce's "Finnegans Wake" and the deconstructive texts of Jacques Derrida, with a particular emphasis on "Glas".
