about this item
“A brilliantly collaged snapshot of the variety and wealth of literary criticism, and Joyce studies, today.”—Tony Thwaites, author ofJoycean Temporalities“Celebrates the multiplicity and sheer rampant excess of Joyce’s prodigally polysemous text with seventeen different scholars employing a likewise prodigal range of critical methodologies.”—Patrick O’Neill, author ofImpossible Joyce: Finnegans Wakes“This book makes the Wake relevant and accessible to a whole new generation of readers.”—Garry Leonard, author ofAdvertising and Commodity Culture in JoyceThis guide to Finnegans Wake is the first to focus exclusively on the multiple meanings and voices in Joyce’s notoriously intricate diction—theWake’s central experimental technique. Renowned Joyce scholars explore the polyvocality of individual chapters using game theory, ecocriticism, psychoanalysis, historicism, myth, philosophy, genetic studies, feminism, and other critical frameworks. They set in motion cross-currents and radiating structures of meaning that permeate the entire text and open up satisfying readings of theWake for novices and seasoned readers alike.
This volume focuses exclusively on illuminating the multiplicity of meanings and voices that can be found in the language of James Joyce's Finnigans Wake.
