Joyce and popular culture

These essays employ a variety of critical techniques to bring out James Joyce's involvement in the popular culture of his time. Treating all of Joyce's work from ""Dubliners"" through ""Finnegan's Wake"", they question the conventional idea that popular culture is the inverse of modernist high art.
