This weekend’s Irish Times has a fascinating article by Frank Callanan that casts unexpected light on Joyce’s politics from 1902-1904.  The piece, extracted from a longer essay in the new issue of the Dublin James Joyce Journal, draws on the Paris-Pola notebook at the NLI and unravels the thread that runs from articles in the United Irishman, through Joyce’s reading on Irish politics, to the publication of his first, sharply worded book review.  It offers an important contribution to our understanding of Joyce agonistic engagement with Irish nationalism during these still obscure years.
