It focuses especially on the cityÕs mediation through the  fl‰neur  , a wandering, observant city figure who for the first time in these late modernist texts can be found outside the previous definition of white, Christian, straight male. The close reading of these texts allows views of Dublin, Berlin and Paris as semi-colonial space-time presences each faring differently from the approaching end of colonialism. My argument is that by investing the figure of the  fl‰neur   with non-native, non-imperial power to observe, these late modernist authors re-map their novelsÕ cities as multi-vocal spaces, eschewing the binary code of insider/outsider which had reigned since at least the inception of modernity.
