"An illuminating addition to our understanding of Irish letters in the centenary year of the Easter Rising."—James Joyce Quarterly

"Bender’s book is an astute analysis of not only the political anxieties at the heart of Irish nationalism, but also of the myriad ways in which leading cultural and political figures used Jewish and Biblical themes to think through these anxieties."—Canadian Journal of Irish Studies

"Bender’s remarkable, clear-eyed views of Exodus and the Irish Revival are an encouraging reminder that a cosmopolitan fusion of perspectives has been—and still can be—the best way forward to a promised land, though not without the intermediate agony of soul-searching and dissent in the wilderness."—James Joyce Literary Supplement

"Bender has achieved a stellar analysis of how and why the Biblical narrative of Exodus was appropriated, contested, obscured, and reinvigorated by literary and political thinkers in Ireland. The argument is equally cogent and compelling whether she is examining the language of journalism or the dizzying complexities of James Joyce. Equally impressive and sophisticated is her subtle and nuanced portrait of the complications and paradoxes of Exodus itself."—Marjorie Howes, coeditor of Semicolonial Joyce

"This book is a terrific and eye-opening work of cultural/literary scholarship. Meticulously researched, beautifully written, broadly and convincingly resonant in its conclusions and implications, this study will contribute significantly to Irish studies, Jewish studies, and literary studies especially—but also to postcolonial studies and to the study of nationalism and nation-formation."—Vincent J. Cheng, author of Joyce, Race, and Empire

"An important and serious topic for any consideration of Irish history and literature, certainly for the modern and particularly for Joyce. . . . Well written and well researched."—Marilyn Reizbaum, author of James Joyce’s Judaic Other
