All of Derrida’s texts on Joyce together under one cover in fresh, new translations, along with key essays covering the range of Derrida’s engagement with Joyce’s works. Bringing together all of Jacques Derrida’s writings on James Joyce, this volume includes the first complete translation of his book Ulysses Gramophone: Two Words for Joyce as well as the first translation of the essay “The Night Watch.” In Ulysses Gramophone, Derrida provides some of his most thorough reflections on affirmation and the “yes,” the signature, and the role of technological mediation in all of these areas. In “The Night Watch,” Derrida pursues his ruminations on writing in an explicitly feminist direction, offering profound observations on the connection between writing and matricide. Accompanying these texts are nine essays by leading scholars from across the humanities addressing Derrida’s treatments of Joyce throughout his work, and two remembrances of lectures devoted to Joyce that Derrida gave in 1982 and 1984. The volume concludes with photographs of Derrida from these two events.

Und tatsächlich, sein Leben spiegelt all die Wunder des soeben angebrochenen neuen Zeitalters. »K« steht für Kommunikation: Begeistert von der neuen Funktechnologie, verbringt Serge die Nächte mit der Suche nach Signalen im Äther. »K« steht für Krieg: Im Ersten Weltkrieg wird er als Funker eingezogen, und er liebt es, in seiner Flugmaschine, Kokain im Blut, Hölderlin auf den Lippen, über die Verwüstungen hinwegzufliegen. »K« steht aber auch für Krypta: Nach Séancen, Sex und Paranoia im Swinging London der Zwanziger verschlägt es Karrefax in das Ägypten Howard Carters. Bis sein Leben an jenem Tag, an dem er in eine der altägyptischen Grabkammern hinabsteigt, eine Wendung nimmt ...
