26 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This critical compendium surveys the whole of Joyce's work, from his early writings as a student in Dublin to the labyrinths of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. It shows how Joyce grew beyond his early artistic revolt against middle-class Ireland to become a great comic writer, who even at his most experimental never ceased to draw his inspiration from the common life of ordinary men and women.--Adapted from publisher description

Authors and authority : English and American criticism, 1750-1990 by Patrick Parrinder( Book )

25 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Authors and Authority" is a one-volume history of Anglo-American literary criticism from the neoclassical period up until recent trends in modern literary theory, feminist criticism and cultural history. Focussing on the work of major critics such as Johnson, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Arnold, Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Leavis, Frye and Lionel Trilling, Parrinder traces the connections between authorship and critical authority, and between literary debate and the changing forms of culture and society. Surveying the development that leads from the creative manifestos of the Romantic poets to the current interpretative theories of stucturalism, deconstruction and new historicism, the author asks whether there is a future for a distinctively literary criticism, and whether the gulf between creator and critic can be healed. -- Back cover
