About this book
This book presents the first sustained analysis for students of the language and style of Joyce's major prose works in the light of current work in language studies, stylistics and literary theory. Each chapter addresses a particular aspect of the style of a prose work or text, rhetoric (Dubliners, and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man), speech and thought presentation and word-play (Ulysses) and sound-play (Finnegans Wake). The book is written specifically for undergraduates and general readers interested in Joyce who may lack a linguistic background.
