The difficulties that students face when tackling Joyce's works are often addressed by focusing on plot, implying that the "real" books are hidden behind the author's complex language and style. This reader-friendly introduction offers an alternative approach, suggesting that close attention to Joyce's words, phrases, and sentences is the best route to reading his works with insight and pleasure. Seidel demystifies Joyce's style, demonstrating that everything students need to know in order to read his works may be discovered in the books themselves.
