This eBook edition of "FINNEGANS WAKE" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Finnegans Wake is a novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It is significant for its experimental style and reputation as one of the most audacious works of fiction in the English language. Written in Paris over a period of seventeen years, and published in 1939, two years before the author's death, Finnegans Wake was Joyce's final work. The book discusses, in an unorthodox fashion, the Earwicker family, comprising the father HCE, the mother ALP, and their three children Shem the Penman, Shaun the Postman, and Issy. James Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist, short story writer, and poet. He contributed to the modernist avant-garde and is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the 20th century.

For years, William York Tindall's guide has been one of the very best ways to approach the difficult writing and complex language of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. Over a period of forty years, Tindall studied, instructed, and most importantly, learned from graduate students about Joyce's greatest literary masterpiece. He explores and analyzes Joyce's unexpected depths and vast collection of puns, allusions, and word plays involving more than a dozen languages, thereby breaking down the formidable barriers that can discourage readers from enjoying the humor and brilliance of Joyce.

Excerpt: Finnegans Wake is a work of comic fiction by Irish author James Joyce, significant for its experimental style and resulting reputation as one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language. Written in Paris over a period of seventeen years, and published in 1939, two years before the author's death, Finnegans Wake was Joyce's final work. The entire book is written in a largely idiosyncratic language, consisting of a mixture of standard English lexical items and neologistic multilingual puns and portmanteau words, which many critics believe attempts to recreate the experience of sleep and dreams. Owing to the work's expansive linguistic experiments, stream of consciousness writing style, literary allusions, free dream associations, and its abandonment of the conventions of plot and character construction, Finnegans Wake remains largely unread by the general public. Despite these obstacles, readers and commentators have reached a broad consensus about the book's central cast of characters and, to a lesser degree, its plot. However, a number of key details remain elusive. The book treats, in an unorthodox fashion, the Earwicker family, composed of the father HCE, the mother ALP, and their three children Shem the Penman, Shaun the Post, and Issy. Following an unspecified rumour about HCE, the book, in a nonlinear dream narrative, follows his wife's attempts to exonerate him with a letter, his sons' struggle to replace him, Shaun's rise to prominence, and a final monologue by ALP at the break of dawn. The opening line of the book is a sentence fragment which continues from the book's unfinished closing line, making th...

In Finnegan's Wake, James Joyce's last and most difficult book, Dr. Zulfiqar Ali Choudhry shows in this fascinating study that Joyce may truly be said to have become Europasianized. His study of Finnegan's Wake's roots in the Koran, in Hinduism, in the Thousand and One Nights and in Persian vocabulary and thought is at once a definitive work in itself, and a source of inspiration for future Joyce scholars and students. Dr. Choudhry differs from his predecessors in being an expert in the languages and cultures of the Subcontinent, but like any good Joycean he is an incarnation of the ideal reader possessed by an ideal insomnia. His study of Finnegan's Wake's roots in the Koran, in Hinduism, in the Thousand and One Nights and in Persian vocabulary and thought is at once a definitive work in itself, and a source of inspiration for future Joyce scholars and students.

This fourth in a series continues this non-academic author's ground-breaking word by word analysis of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. This volume covers all of chapters 1.7, 1.8 and 2.1 with the intent to explore them as art objects. In chapters 1.7 and 1.8 Aesthetics meets Theosophy meets Metaphysics. Together they share a common subject-how one part or whole treats another part. These two chapters move from shun to share, hurt to help, male to female. In aesthetics, from bad art to good art. In theosophy, from TZTZ god to ES god. In metaphysics a la Arthur Schopenhauer, from male to female aspects of Will. Featuring an all male cast, chapter 1.7 is a stinging criticism of Shem by Shaun-brother against brother. Chapter 1.7 is intentionally bad art. In aesthetic terms, the whole of the chapter is at odds with the parts and the parts at odds with other parts. With an all female cast, chapter 1.8 features a young washerwoman and old washerwoman washing clothes and talking together across a river. The main point is that they are working together, and Old shares knowledge of the eternal feminine with Young. Sharing replaces shunning. Part helps part. Chapter 1.8 is intentionally divine art. Chapter 2.1 starts Part II that features the Earwicker children, the human expression of the death defying new. As children, they come with the potential for new possibilities. Initially, however, their realization is limited by youth, when they are more under instinct-based and parental control than under self-control. Chapter 2.1 features a children's game fueled by immature sexual intoxication and loss of self-control. Joyce presents this come-on game in the rhythms and rhymes of children's stories, poems and songs, that is in children's art limited by the purpose to please a young mind. Chapter 2.1 takes the form of a play. The action in the play is the children's game. It is a play about play. With drama in the structure, Joyce weaves Macbeth into the chapter and like Shakespeare's bearded witches, boils the pot with male and female. Hermetic magic supplies the metaphors and concepts for chapter 2.1. Hermetic magic is the art of accessing the celestial force field known as the Astral Light. In order to have strong magic the magus must be in equilibrium and must know him or herself. Magus Joyce notes that these same requirements are necessary for the highest art.

Alchemy and Finnegans Wake

In the first full-length study of Joyce's direct and indirect use of alchemical allusions, DiBernard shows how an awareness of the alchemical metaphor guides a reader through the richness of Finnegans Wake. For example, the alchemical transmutation of lead into gold parallels the transmutation of the dross and commotion of ordinary life into a work of art. This study shows how the themes of Joyce's novel--death and rebirth, the conflict between physical and spiritual, incest, colors, forgery, and the reconciliation of opposites--relate to the alchemical process. The author then presents a theory, based on alchemical metaphor, on the much debated subject of Joyce's view of the artist.

Long considered the essential guide to Joyce's famously difficult work, Roland McHugh's Annotations to "Finnegans Wake" provides both novice readers and seasoned Joyceans with a wealth of information in an easy-to-use format uniquely suited to this densely layered text. Each page of the Annotations corresponds directly with a page of the standard Viking/Penguin edition of Finnegans Wake and contains line-by-line notes following the placement of the passages to which they refer. The reader can thus look directly from text to notes and back again, with no need to consult separate glossaries or other listings. McHugh's richly detailed notes distill decades of scholarship, explicating foreign words, unusual English connotations and colloquial expressions, place names, historical events, song titles and quotations, parodies of other texts, and Joyce's diverse literary and popular sources. The third edition has added material reflecting fifteen years of research, including significant new insights from Joyce's compositional notebooks (the "Buffalo Notebooks"), now being edited for the first time.

Some scholars see James Joyce's Finnegans Wake as a work of satire and irony; others see it as a playground for the English language. I love the book, and its release into the public domain in many parts of the world enabled me to produce this illustrated Volume. Finnegans Wake endures the reputation of being one of the most challenging works of fiction in the English language. When asked what he made of it, Ezra Pound contended, “Nothing so far as I make out, nothing short of divine vision or a new cure for the clap can possibly be worth all the circumambient peripherization.” Oliver Gogarty believed it was “the most colossal leg pull in literature since Macpherson's Ossian.” But if a picture can clarify a thousand words, then perhaps pictures can help illuminate Joyce's masterpiece. My copy of Finnegans Wake includes 219,035 words. At one picture per one thousand words, it would take only 220 pictures to explain the entire text. This illustrated book, Volume 1, contains Finnegans Wake Book 1, Chapters 1 and 2, at 15,751 words. I have incorporated over 300 illustrations, so you can see that these two chapters are explained awfully thoroughly. At this rate, the final set of illustrated Volumes will contain over 4,170 images, an over-explanation ratio of more than 19:1. So quickly can confusing things come to brightness.All the illustrations are authentic and promote the tradition of prickly debate started with the publication of Joyce's original book. As critic Omar Gosh says, “It is a real piece of work.”“I can't wait to see the movie.” – Dick Tator, The Banana Republican. “We hope to carry on the tradition for this work of many initially negative reviews, ranging from bafflement to open hostility: It's a real piece of work.” – Segovia Carpet, The Unterrified English Major News. “If Boose isn't America's leading classic literature illustrator, I can see why.” – Isabelle Ringing. “Where's Finnegan? Where's the wake?” – Ginger Vitas, The Typesetter Tabloid. “This is the best e-book I've ever seen.” – Abraham Lincoln. “Here Comes – Pictures of – Everybody.” – Vito Powers. “Even more dense and obscure than the original.” – Stephen Dedalus, The Fowlmouth Forum. “Clearly, the author's mind is not polluted with a single idea.” – Ira Gurgitate, The Emma Wroyd Journal of Paid Endorsements. “…truly… a book… Joyce… pictures… lunchtime…” – Felix Cited. “The author continues to erode the literary value of Finnegans Wake, now infesting it with dubious illustrations.” – Daryl Lickt, The Cellar Door Shower“Boose is an unbelievable illustrator.” – F. Stop Fitzgerald. “O june of eves the jenniest, thou who fleeest flicklesome the fond fervid frondeur to thickly thyself attach...” – J. Joyce, Finnegans Wake.

The Finnegans Wake Notebook Edition is a fully integrated and cross-referenced edition of all the extant work-books compiled by Joyce after the completion of Ulysses. It will be published as a series of fascicles, one per authorial notebook, three per scribal notebook, fifty-five in all. This will make individual notebooks available to scholars as they appear and allow critical feedback, laying the foundations for an electronic edition that will be prepared simultaneously. The editorial aim is to bring together all of the information relevant to each note in as concise and simple a way as possible. The Finnegans Wake Notebook Edition will provide a reference library of comprehensively quoted source material-in effect an annotated digest of Joyce's working library-which will serve as a new starting point not just for exegesis of Finnegans Wake, but also for biographical, textual, and literary criticism of Joyce. Furthermore, the Edition will allow for a reconstruction of Joyce's intellectual concerns and compositional habits during the drafting of Work in Progress / Finnegans Wake.
