(p.299) Nine Modernism
An Archaeology of Sympathy

James Chandler

University of Chicago Press

This chapter considers examples of high modernist fiction. It discusses James Joyce's engagement with the products and activities of sentimental culture as these reach back to the Georgian period, when modern Dublin took architectural and cultural shape, a history nostalgically registered in “The Dead,” the long final story of Dubliners (1913). It also examines an earlier work of modernist fiction, and a seminal one: Joseph Conrad's Lord Jim, which has suggestive connections to cinema, even to Capra's cinema.

Keywords:   modernist fiction, James Joyce, Joseph Conrad, Dubliners, Lord Jim, cinema, Capra, sentimental culture
