The development of Joycean studies into a respected and very large sub-discipline of modernist studies can be traced to the work of several important scholars. Karen R. Lawrence can easily be considered among those who did the most to document Joyce's work. A retrospective of decades of work on Joyce, this collection includes published journal articles, book chapters, and selections from her best-known work (all updated and revised), along with one new essay. Featuring engaging close readings of such Joyce works as Dubliners and Ulysses, it will be a welcome addition to any serious Joycean's library and will prove extremely useful to new generations of Joyce critics looking to build on Lawrence's expansive scholarship. Both readable and lively, this work may inspire a lifetime of reading, re-reading, and teaching Joyce.
"The author of the acclaimed The Odyssey of Style in Ulysses here presents her thinking on James Joyce dating from that landmark work. Who’s Afraid of James Joyce? is consistently erudite and thought provoking."--John Gordon, Connecticut College
Karen R. Lawrence is president of The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens. She has authored and edited several other books, most recently Transcultural Joyce.
