Inhaltsangabe: John Stanislaus Joyce: The Voluminous Life and Genius of James Joyce's Father
xvii, 493 pp. "Heroic drinker, superlative swearer, and self-described "heartburn on the arse", John Stanislaus Joyce was so bursting with charisma and wild ideas that it's not surprising he played a major role in his son James's imagination.For the first time, Joyce scholars John Wyse Jackson and Peter Costello piece together the extraordinary life of this formidable father, storyteller, drinker, and patriot, tracing his presence in Ulysses, Dubliners, and the rest of James Joyce's canon.This is a book for every Joyce fan, as well as every reader who loved Nora by Brenda Maddox, How the Irish Saved Civilization by Thomas Cahill, and Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes. Brimming with Irish history in colorful detail, it offers a rare view into a remarkable Irish family that just happened to give us the greatest writer of the twentieth century."Keywords: JOHN WYSE JACKSON PETER COSTELLO JOHN STANISLAUS JOYCE JAMES JOYCE'S FATHER VOLUMINOUS LIFE GENIUS BIOGRAPHY LITERARY IRELAND IRISH HISTORY

Rezension: It is ironic that a man who scarcely wrote a word in his life, failing even to write letters to friends, fathered one of the 20th century's greatest master of words. John Stanislaus Joyce--father of novelist James--had much to say, for sure, but his media were the witty turn of phrase and off-the-cuff song, his stage, the pub. John Stanislaus was raised in Cork then educated in Dublin. Here he quickly rose to prominence in the local pubs where he shared his passionate Irish nationalism and fervor for sports with bar mates. Though he received a comfortable inheritance in early adulthood, Joyce the elder was, by all accounts, a terrible money manager. In fact the few letters he ever wrote were loan requests; thus the Joyce home was loving but often impermanent, shifting with the tides of fortune. Joyce's most important gift to his son James was his contribution to his fiction. John Stanislaus is the model for the hero of Finnegan's Wake and his "memories and extravagant idioms" are the foundation of Ulysses's Leopold Bloom. Writers John Wyse Jackson and Peter Costello include in this biography some of James's character sketches of his father--a real treat for Joyce fans and scholars.
