In this article, Kearns examines James Joyce’s spatial poetics with regard to Irish identity, in preference to the dynamics of capitalism. He explores Joyce’s central poetic concerns and explores the moral history of Dublin as represented in Ulysses and Dubliners. Also regarding Ulysses, Kearns suggests possible reasons for the use of maps in the text, and how they are used to represent Ireland.
