Overview

A unique anthology of Joyce's non-fictional writings, this volume addresses diverse issues such as aesthetics, the functions of the press, censorship, Irish cultural history, English literature and Empire. The collection includes newspaper articles, reviews, lectures and essays, and covers 40 years of Joyce's life. These pieces also clarify and illuminate the transformations in Joyce's fiction, from Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man to the first drafts of Ulysses. Gathering together more than fifty essays, several of which have never been available in an English edition, this is the most complete and the most helpfully annotated collection.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Oxford University Press volume, with Barry's copius annotations, cannot help but convey to new students that this is the long established work of a modernist master. . . Barry's introduction expertly glosses the contemporary context of Joyce's lecture"—TLS 29/06/01
