Über diesen Titel


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.

From the Back Cover:

Excellent introduction to one of the most influential modernists of the 20th century!

* Outlines his life and cultural background.
* Explores important places and people in Joyce's life and their effect on he and his writings.
* Examines three of his major works: A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake
James Joyce was one do the most influential modernists of the 20th century - famous for developing the 'stream of consciousness' technique in writing. In a millennial survey, Ulysses was voted the most popular novel of the century. The Preface Books series approaches the work of Joyce from a particular perspective which, by introducing the writer via a biographical sketch and a survey of his cultural and social context, encourages readers to understand his work in the period it was written. Sydney bolt's A Preface to Joyce provides a fascinating account of one of the greatest twentieth-century writers and will be essential reading for anyone interested in reading the works of Joyce.

Sydney Bolt was formerly at Anglia University.
