A unique anthology of Joyce's non-fictional writings, this volume addresses diverse issues such as aesthetics, the functions of the press, censorship, Irish cultural history, English literature and Empire. The collection includes newspaper articles, reviews, lectures and essays, and covers 40 years of Joyce's life. These pieces also clarify and illuminate the transformations in Joyce's fiction, from Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man to the first drafts of Ulysses. Gathering together more than fifty essays, several of which have never been available in an English edition, this is the most complete and the most helpfully annotated collection.
