James Joyce A Critical Guide

Lee Spinks


This book presents a full and comprehensive account of the major writing of the modernist novelist James Joyce. Ranging right across Joyce's literary corpus from his earliest artistic beginnings to his mature prose masterpieces Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, it provides detailed textual analysis of each of his major works. The book also provides an extended discussion of the biographical, historical, political and social contexts that inform Joyce's writing and a wide-ranging discussion of the multiple strands of Joyce criticism that have established themselves over the last eighty years.
