Review of Luke Thurston, James Joyce and the problem of psychoanalysis
The central purpose of Luke Thurston’s study is to place emphasis on the new in Joyce scholarship, a field he understands as rife with repetition and redundancy. To this end, Thurston rejects both applying psychoanalytic ideas to Joyce’s works, treating them as patients, and examining the connection between psychoanalysis and the encyclopaedic reading that fed Joyce’s creative process.
