Stein would not talk about Joyce, wrote Hemingway: ’If you brought up Joyce twice, you would not be invited back (A Moveable Feast). Joyce felt threatened by Stein (as did Hemingway). Joyce hardly admitted being influenced by anyone, yet every writer has a complex relation to her or his predecessors and contemporaries. Abstracts of 250 words exploring Joyce’s anxious reactions to writers like Stein and Yeats, or extreme praise accorded to Italo Svevo (or daughter Lucia) to jmcquail@tntech.edu or J.
