James Joyce’s Other Image is the author’s
multi-faceted response to four years of almost exclusive
concentration on James Joyce’s Own Image, a study on
the terms `image‘ and `imagination‘ in A Portrait
and Ulysses.

Having convinced himself that Joyce is a canonical writer
even from the removed German perspective, he goes on to
explore different aspects of Joyce studies before he
addresses Ulysses in terms of Shakespeare and Sterne
as well as Musil, Joyce, and Bachmann in terms of their
„fictional memoirs of the Hapsburg Empire“.

Since the focus is on textual presence rather than on personal
(and possibly absent) influence, a pedagogical case study of
how Sterne’s and Shakespeare’s works may be read through
Ulysses and an essay on Joyce’s „Omnipresence in
Contemporary Literature“ seem in order.

Finally, a fictional trialogue between George Moore, James
Joyce, and Samuel Beckett maps out a move beyond the realm
of criticism.

Jörg Rademacher teaches English for Specific

free-lance translator and literary critic. His publications
include James Joyce’s Own Image (1993), Was
nun, Herr Bloom!, a collection of essays by diverse hands
to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the publication of
Ulysses, which he edits, as well as
translations of books by Daniel Defoe, Ngugi wa Thiong’o,
Hein Grosskopf, and James Joyce’s Ireland by David
