For years, William York Tindall's Guide has been one of the valuable ways to approach the difficult writing and complex language of Joyce's "Finnegans Wake". Over a period of 40 years, Tindall studied, instructed and, most importantly, learned from graduate students about Joyce's greatest literary masterpiece. He explores and analyses Joyce's unexpected depths and vast collection of puns, allusions and word plays involving over a dozen languages. Tindall's "Guide" not only updates past guides to "Finnegans Wake", but also breaks down the formidable barriers that could discourage readers from enjoying the humour and brilliance of Joyce.
