This collection, first published in 1982, brings together thirteen writers from a wide variety of critical traditions to take a fresh look at Joyce and his crucial position not only in English literature but in modern literature as a whole. Comparative views of his work include reflections on his relations to Shakespeare, Blake, MacDiarmid, and the Anglo-Irish revival.
Essays, story and poems all combine to celebrate the major constituents of Joyce's work - his imagination and comedy, his exuberant use of language, his relation to the history of his country and his age, and his passionate commitment to `a more veritably human tradition'. This title will be of interest to students of literature.
