Joyce's Allmaziful Plurabilities : Polyvocal Explorations of Finnegans Wake Paperback / softback

Edited by Kimberly J. Devlin, Christine Smedley

Part of the Florida James Joyce series

Description

This is the first Finnegans Wake guide to focus exclusively on the multiple meanings and voices in Joyce's notoriously intricate diction.

Rather than leveling the text it illuminates many layers of puns, wordplay, and portmanteaus, celebrating the Wake's central experimental technique. Renowned Joyce scholars explore the polyvocality of individual chapters using game theory, ecocriticism, psychoanalysis, historicism, myth, philosophy, genetic studies, feminism, and other critical frameworks.

They set in motion cross-currents and radiating structures of meaning that permeate the entire text and open up satisfying readings of the Wake for novices and seasoned readers alike.
