Product Description

(Penguin Classics). First published in 1939. 'A story with no real beginning or end (it ends in the middle of a sentence and begins in the middle of the same sentence,' Joyce's monumental, culminating workconveys 'what goes on in a dream, during a dream,' a nocturnal state of writing 'forged from polyglot puns and portmanteau words.' The book would exhaust two decades of Joyce's life and the resources of some sixty languages. A great comic vision, Joyce's work is acknowledged by Samuel Beckett: 'Here words are not the polite contortions of twentieth-century printer's ink. They are alive. They elbow on to the page and glow and blaze and fade and disappear.' 628p. Pap.
