He refutes the idea that the main purpose of Joyces writing was to deliberately shock his readers. Kenner assumes that Joyce was not a man with a box of mysteries, but a writer with a subject: his native European metropolis of Dublin, the dual nature of this city at the turn of the century, approaching ubranization and preserving its Catholic traditions, gave rise to a technique labeled by Kenner as double writing.
