Journey Westward
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the history of the changing power structure in Ireland through an analysis of James Joyce's engagements with the past, particularly with the fall of Irish Jacobitism in 1691. It highlights the importance of Joyce's interest in the lost cause of Jacobitism in understanding his attitude towards Irish nationalism and his engagement with Irish history and historiography. The chapter describes the manifestation of the Jacobite hue in the stories in Dubliners, including ‘The Sisters’, ‘After the Race’ and ‘The Dead’.
