Abstract: Aside from their shared Celtic heritage, Ireland and Galicia found themselves in interestingly similar situations at the turn of the 20th century. As the rest of Europe thrived with industry, social revolution, and new ideas, the peoples of Ireland and Galicia languished, isolated within intellectually and commercially stagnant communities. Like their native countries, James Joyce and Emilia Pardo Bazán, too, found themselves in a parallel situation. Both lived simultaneously among and outside their respective cultures, flourishing intellectually and academically while processing the unavoidable reality that their homes remained stagnant even as the rest of the world modernized. Their works contain some of the best portrayals of the colonial situation their peoples faced, as well as some of the most interesting explanations for why they had to.
