This book focuses on Joyce's interest and involvement in early modern cinema and his subsequent thematic and formal borrowing for this genre. Leading Joyce and film studies scholars look at cinema's interest in Joyce as seen in important film versions of his work and contemporary films such as American Beauty (Mendes, 1999) and The Departed (Scorsese, 2006). For the most part Ulysses is the preferred text, but stories from Dubliners, as well as A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Finnegans Wake also provide points of reference.

This book focuses on Joyce s interest and involvement in early modern cinema and his subsequent thematic and formal borrowing for this genre; It will look at cinema s interest in Joyce as seen in important film versions of his work.
