"Much of this detailed (often page-by-page) interpretation of Joyce's works reads like a free but academic outline offered for discussion and comment, and this is its strength. . . . Tindall's summary and interpretation of the books in the Joyce canon emphasizes allusions, relationships, and parallels in world literature and utilizes his extensive knowledge of psychology. Recommended."—Library Journal
First published in 1959, William York Tindall’s Reader’s Guide is still considered to be the best introduction to the complex writings of James Joyce. From Dubliners to Finnegans Wake, Tindall’s knowledge is as comprehensive as it is authoritative.
