1922-2022: Memory, the Media, and Present-day Modernism

  • Ilaria Natali Università di Firenze
Parole chiave: James Joyce, T.S. Eliot, Jennifer Egan, Memory, Digital Culture


Jennifer Egan’s The Candy House, published in 2022, revisits the form and themes of two works that crowned the annus mirabilis of 1922: James Joyce’s Ulysses and T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land. What especially connects these works to each other is a shared interest in the relationship between individual and collective memory, as well as a reflection on the technological tools or means of communication that can be adopted to capture, externalize, and share past experiences.
