Nathan "N.R." Gaddis
Very simple. Werner's thesis is that Joyce's major accomplishment is a synthesis, rather, to go with Homer, a navigation between the Charybdis and Scylla of the romantic-symbolic and the naturalistic-realistic novelistic modes. To pass through or combine or balance the solutions offered as either the total freeing/alienation of character from society or the total victimization by society of the character. A middle ground. Both/and. An alternative to the either/or.
