The Presence of James Joyce in the Poetry and Prose of A.M. Klein
Abstract
A.M. Klein (1909-1972) was a Montreal poet, novelist, short-story writer, journalist and lawyer. He is considered one of the leading figures in Jewish Canadian culture. The Irish novelist and poet James Joyce (1882-1941) was an influential writer in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. The author examines the details of A. M. Klein's interest in James Joyce, as well as Joyce's effect on Klein's major works. The author argues that Klein's fascination with Joyce's literary innovations is apparent in almost every aspect of his literary career, and suggests there is evidence that Klein's involvement with Joyce's writing spans almost his entire career as a writer. The author believes that Klein's attraction to Joyce's writing stimulated Klein's artistic development, and his attempts to write critical essays on Joyce's novel Ulysses ultimately drew him away from his creative writing.
