Michael Joyce

Hélène Cixous recently remarked that "Michael Joyce is a subliminal explorer--he sets off to explore mental regions that are generally neglected, as if they were forests or deserted islands. ... This is the secret of great poetical writing." Mr. Joyce's first novel, The War Outside Ireland, received the Great Lakes New Writers Award, and was described by John Hawkes as "a tall tale, a family history, [and] a lyric meditation on the holy temper of the Irish mind..." Over the past twenty years Michael Joyce has also created acclaimed hypertext fictions, including afternoon, a story and Twilight, A Symphony. Recent printed books include Othermindedness: the emergence of network culture, Of Two Minds: Hypertext Pedagogy and Poetics, and Moral Tales and Meditations. An associate professor of English at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, he is the father of two sons.
