Abstract: Joyce is notably one of the preeminent proponents of high modernism. His ground breaking avant garde writing style is an admirable quality that has redefined the exercise of prose writing. Of all his excellent traits, his mastery of twinning deserves a very big place in his prolific scholarship. Joyce, to a large extent, has applied this practice of linking in diverse areas like modernity with mythology, past with present, history with modernity, subjectivity with objectivity, etc. Nevertheless, there are certain domains that undoubtedly require an observation from new perspectives. In this connection, it can also be noted that in this 21st century the character of novels is studied and lauded for their inclusiveness of all types of characteristics regardless of their acceptability in conventional forms. This essay possibly identifies and evaluates the novelist on the grounds that his magical quality of mixing was another perceptible affair that served for his profundity.
