Connor, Steven (2011) James Joyce. Tavistock, UK: Northcote House. ISBN 9780746311677.
The works of James Joyce have long been regarded as central to European modernism. It is also clear what a continuing provocation and source of renewal Joyce’s works are for contemporary cultural theory, especially feminism, post modernism and postcolonialism. This new edition of Steven Connor’s book is an animated, accessible introduction to the whole range of Joyce’s work, from Dubliners through to Finnegan’s Wake. It contains a revised bibliography and critical evaluation, taking account of the ever-growing corpus of literary criticism of Joyce and his work. Steve Connor is emerging as one of the leading academics of modern literature, and his book traces the leading concerns of Joyce’s work with language, sexual and cultural identity, and the transforming experiences of modernity. It also considers the relations between Joyce and postmodernity and its unifying preoccupation is with the series of challenges that Joyce’s writing poses to the cultural meanings of work.
