Giacomo Joyce: Envoys of the Other
Louis Armand, Clare Wallace
Academica Press, Jan 1, 2002 - Literary Criticism - 274 pages
James Joyce's Giacomo Joyce has generated considerable interest since its posthumous publication in 1968 and this new, ground-breaking work addresses that interest. Giacomo Joyce has provoked widely differing opinions amongst Joyce scholars. But while critical attention has increased, little if anything has been done to draw together the various commentaries, document and exegeses related to this work in anything like a coherent manner. It is clear that in this absence of any full-length critical study that the emerging critical interest stands in need of a volume which would draw together existing scholarship and provide a basis for an ongoing critical project. This project has so far met with very positive responses from the community of Joyce scholars, and is widely considered to be a necessary and long over-due effort at presenting the last of Joyce's published texts within a broad scholarly apparatus. Both the authors have published extensively on Irish Literature and James Joyce and have presented papers at numerous Joyce conferences, symposia and summer schools.
