ENVOYS OF THE OTHER
Order: paperback / Kindle
Of all James Joyce’s extant works, Giacomo Joyce is the one which has least received what is arguably its due. This book, the first collection of essays devoted entirely to Joyce’s last published work, is an attempt to place the critical reception of this text within the larger framework of current Joyce studies. Bringing together the work of some of Joyce’s major commentators, Envoys of the Other is a timely volume of significant worth to any scholar or student of James Joyce and twentieth-century literary modernism.
“…particularly wide-ranging and profound…” (Franca Ruggieri, James Joyce Quarterly)
