As we celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day on March 17, it is fitting to consider Irish novelist, short-story writer and poet James Joyce, one of the most important writers of the 20th century. He is best known for the colossal work Ulysses, written in a stream-of-consciousness style and considered by many to be among the greatest literary works of all time.
Finnegans Wake, written after Ulysses, takes Joyce’s experimental style even further, and it has been called one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language. Anthony Burgess has praised the work as “a great comic vision” while Harold Bloom considers this work Joyce’s masterpiece. We hesitate to offer a plot summary here, as even literary experts cannot provide a common interpretation. Instead, we invite you to take a look at the work yourself, if you are up to the challenge!
Finnegan’s Wake was listed among Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels. A number of others are available here at Faded Page, including George Orwell’s 1984 and Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms. Come join us and proof a few pages to help bring more public domain titles like these to Canada. Information about volunteering is available on our companion site Distributed Proofreaders Canada.
