One of the greatest artistic works of the twentieth century, Finnegans Wake is here presented in an edition that helps readers get past its reputation for difficulty in order to enjoy its astonishing originality and imaginative achievement. Introduction by Finn Fordham anchors the work in conventional novelistic terms of plot and characters, identifying themes, discussing the work's origins and composition, its linguistic playfulness and humour, and suggesting a range of ways into the book. Detailed chapter-by-chapter outline of the 'plot'. Newly set text, incorporating Joyce's corrections, but adhering to the traditional page and line count. Note on the Text describes the 16-year genesis of the book and its error-ridden publication history. Appendix of Selected Variants lists some of the many typographical errors that have added to the book's difficulty. Select Bibliography and thorough Chronology of the author. 'And low, stole o'er the stillness the heartbeats of sleep' In Chapelizod, a suburb of Dublin, an innkeeper and his family are sleeping. Around them and their dreams there swirls a vortex of world history, of ambition and failure, desire and transgression, pride and shame, rivalry and conflict, gossip and mystery. This is a book that reinvents the novel and plays fantastic games with the language to tell the story of one man's fall and resurrection; in the intimate drama of Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker and his wife Anna Livia, the character of Ireland itself takes form. Joyce called time and the river and the mountains the real heroes of his book, and its organic structure and extraordinary musicality embody his vision. It is both an outrageous epic and a wildly inventive comedy that rewards its readers with never-ending layers of meaning. In the introduction to this newly set edition, which faithfully maintains the original page layout, Finn Fordham guides the reader through the novel's complexity, and suggests a range of ways into the book. Readership: Readers and students of twentieth-century literature, modernism, the history of the novel, Irish literature, James Joyce
