This chapter aims to provide comparison of Joseph Conrad's moral irony and James Joyce's stylistic disorientation. Particular attention is devoted to James Joyce and the role of his writings as mirrors of and a lamp on social reality. In this chapter, the relation of Joyce's petit bourgeois inheritance to the suppression of middle class Irish Protestantism is carefully analyzed. The historical continuity of Joyce's fiction from Dubliners to Finnegans Wake is carefully studied.

Keywords:   James Joyce, writings, social reality, petit bourgeois, middle class, Irish Protestantism, Dubliners, Finnegans Wake
