A Reader's Guide to Finnegans Wake

 
9780374507640: A Reader's Guide to Finnegans Wake

For years, William York Tindall's guide has been one of the very best ways to approach the difficult writing and complex language of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. Over a period of forty years, Tindall studied, instructed, and most importantly, learned from graduate students about Joyce's greatest literary masterpiece.

He explores and analyzes Joyce's unexpected depths and vast collection of puns, allusions, and word plays involving more than a dozen languages, thereby breaking down the formidable
barriers that can discourage readers from enjoying the humor and brilliance of Joyce.

University Press.

Review:

This book remains an eminently lucid and systematic exposition of the essential structure of one of the most complex and influential prose works of the century. It belongs in every library that has Finnegans Wake. (Library Journal)
