Ever since its first appearance, this splendid book has been widely praised as an ideal introduction to a central and difficult writer, a reputation now consolidated by this second edition. The text has been thoroughly revised in the light of recent work on Joyce and, in particular, includes new material on Joyce's distinctive view of femininity and a greatly expanded treatment of Finnegans Wake. Like its predecessor, the book consists of three main parts. The first section outlines the biographical and cultural background, the second offers a detailed critical survey of three major works, including Ulysses and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and the third section provides valuable reference material.
