The Cambridge introduction to James Joyce
James Joyce is one of modern literature's most important authors, yet those coming to his work for the first time often find it difficult to grapple with.
This introduction provides all the essential facts about Joyce's life and works, and explains the contexts in which he was writing.
Eric Bulson also explains in clear language the different critical approaches that have been used in Joyce studies over the last fifty years.
All Joyce's major works, including Ulysses, Finnegans Wake and Dubliners are covered, and Bulson gives many suggestions for further exploration.
A guide to further reading is included. Students will find this an accessible introduction to understanding and enjoying Joyce.
