Abstract:

Giacomo Joyce is a short story written by James Joyce in 1914, and published posthumously, about the frustrated desire of a teacher - James Joyce himself - for one of his female students. The writing is a compilation of fragments of prose and poetry in which the influences of the East on Trieste's setting and the erotic desire for the female protagonist are omnipresent. A wonderfully rich style both obscures the meaning of the text as well as opens it up for wide interpretation. Great writing, but for some maybe a little enigmatic.
