NATIONALISM

Abstract: This article uses the ironic reference in Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man to the aborted attempt to erect a statue to Wolfe Tone in Dublin in 1898 as a basis for examining allusions to the 1798 rebellion and the revolutionary ideals which underwrote it in his fiction as a whole. Like Stephen Dedalus, Joyce appears on one level to reject the sentimental cult of memory and to distance himself from the widespread attempt to revive nationalist fervor in late nineteenth-century Ireland. However, further analysis reveals that the uncanny presence of a statue that is all the more haunting because of its non-existence may be seen to typify Joyce's complex, critical reassessments of the divided memories, clashing aspirations and violent history of Irish republicanism and on the 1798 rebellion
