about

Boldrini's study examines how the literary and linguistic theories of Dante's Divine Comedy helped shape the radical narrative techniques of Joyce's last novel Finnegans Wake. Through detailed parallel readings, she explores a range of connections: issues such as the question of Babel, literary creation as excrement, the complex relations among literary, geometrical and female forms. This book will appeal to scholars and students interested in Joyce, Dante, and questions of literary relations.

Editorial Reviews

"Her effort to describe the language in Finnegan's Wake deserves to be read by every student of Joyce and by those who are interested in how the medieval world was retrieved by the modernists as a source of influence and inspiration." James Joyce Quarterly
