James Joyce and the Revolt of Love: Marriage, Adultery, Desire - Janine UtellJames Joyce and the Revolt of Love is a study of marriage, adultery, and desire. Beginning with contextual and biographical background and using a vocabulary drawn from postmodern ethics and the philosophy of love, this book examines the representation of marital and extramarital relations in Joyce’s texts. Janine Utell claims that Joyce uses these relations to imagine a different kind of love, one based in a radical acceptance of the otherness of the beloved. Through Joyce’s explosion of conventional narrative, particularly the marriage plot, we learn a new way to read and a new way to love.
