Chapter Summary

This essay seeks to shed light on the complexity of exploring the “new” and the “copy” in Joyce’s relation to Zola across and beyond naturalistic dynamics. Through a close reading of the Vendôme episode in L’Assommoir and “The Parable of the Plums” in Ulysses, I examine how these narratives express intertextually and contextually significant historical visions concealed in the scrupulous representation of the banality of everyday life. Moreover, I show that the tensions between Stephen’s parable and the spectacle of the headlines that punctuate it indirectly parody the sensational stories of the working-class masses, sex, and history as they elliptically journeyed from nineteenth-century newspapers into the naturalistic panorama of L’Assommoir.
