"The most comprehensive and original of the studies dealing with Joyce's response to the idea of God accepted in Ireland and to the sacred images and rituals prevalent there ... shows how in Ulysses he undermines and exploits the crucial elements of his rejected faith: how he recalls the omnipotent Father to reveal his artistic powers, the incarnated Son to celebrate his own human images, and the consecrated host to imply his hidden spiritual presence." Black cloth w/gilt spine lettering, 317 pages (including notes, works cited, index). A bit of slant, mild wear to corners/spine ends, previous owner's signature/date/notation to front end paper, about 30 pages w/underlining/marginalia, in rubbed dust jacket w/scratches/short edge tears, light chipping to corners/spine ends.
