Joseph Brooker’s synthesis lucidly summarizes more than seventy years of Joyce criticism. This is the first broad study of how James Joyce’s work was received in the Anglophone world, accessibly written for both academic and lay readers. Brooker shows how the reading of Joyce's work has moved through different critical paradigms, periods, and places, and how Joyce’s writing has given generations of readers a way to discuss the major issues of the modern world.

Joseph Brooker teaches English literature at Birkbeck College, University of London.
