Abstract:

"[W]ritings of paraboles": geometric traditionalism and corporeal topography in the Wake's "night lessons" -- Squaring the circle: geometry and topography in "Ithaca" -- Textual topography: the "wandering rocks" labyrinth -- Charting Wakean territory.

"Joyce and Geometry" reveals the full extent to which the modernist writer James Joyce was influenced by the radical theories of non-Euclidean geometry. Tracing Joyce's obsession with measuring and mapping space throughout his works, Ciaran McMorran delves into a major theme in Joyce's work that has not been thoroughly explored until now.
