Idylls of the Wanderer

Henry Sussman

Fordham University Press

This chapter examines the concept of exile or outsideness in the works of James Joyce and Walter Benjamin. It explains that exile or the concept of the outside, like many writerly constructs, presents itself in the unresolvable fluctuations of aporia, and serves as an inspiration and a heuristic device. Joyce illustrated this outsideness in his novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Benjamin in his essay “The Task of the Translator”, where there are interfaces, interlinguistic interstices, and interlinear gaps.

Keywords:   James Joyce, Walter Benjamin, exile in literature, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, The Task of the Translator
