    Essential I could not imagine a reading of the Wake without McHugh on the desktop within arm s rach The farther along one goes with McHugh theone is astounded by his achievement One can ask for no better guide through Joyce s nightworld than this, that takes the text apart at the level of fragment and instance of construction of etym A round of applause, people.

    There s very little to say except for the thing Sissy may have said which sounds something like No duh which is not a very nice thing to say and when someone says that you get all violent feeling inside But as to the presence of the McHugh at your Wake side, I have littleto say than No duh 3rd edition please zwei tousand naught sex Do with it vhat an dhow you may, but do it with it samehow.

    I ve looked at a lot of guides to Finnegan s Wake, and this is by far, my favorite if only because it is the only guide that allows you to read Joyce relatively straight through McHugh gives us a single page for each page of the Wake with line by line annotations covering suggested translations, puns, allusions, and historical references As McHugh explains in the preface, the reader examining any of Joyce s pages simply holds the Annotations page alongside it and examines the area correspon I ve looked at a lot of guides to Finnegan s Wake, and this is by far, my favorite if only because it is the only guide that allows you to read Joyce relatively straight through McHugh gives us a single page for each page of the Wake with line by line annotations covering suggested translations, puns, allusions, and historical references As McHugh explains in the preface, the reader examining any of Joyce s pages simply holds the Annotations page alongside it and examines the area corresponding to the passage vi The annotations are culled from dozens of critical works by several Joyce scholars and McHugh avoids unnecessary exegesis Rather than read a pile of traditional guides to the Wake, get this volume and read Joyce as he intended

    Absolutely essential to making local sense of the book That s all there is to it Yes, the book has flaws No, it doesn t give you everything you might want, even for what it claims to do No, it isn t a proper annotation in that when Joyce makes references to various things, McHugh only tells you what he is referencing, but generally nothing about what is referenced, meaning it s on you to look up that information if you desire But, armed with the understanding that McHugh is far from the f Absolutely essential to making local sense of the book That s all there is to it Yes, the book has flaws No, it doesn t give you everything you might want, even for what it claims to do No, it isn t a proper annotation in that when Joyce makes references to various things, McHugh only tells you what he is referencing, but generally nothing about what is referenced, meaning it s on you to look up that information if you desire But, armed with the understanding that McHugh is far from the final word, I can t think of a better source for figuring out what the hell a felibrine trancoped metre affectioned by Taiocebo is supposed to be Plenty of books will offer ready made interpretations of the book McHugh offers you the tools you need to build your own

    I can t imagine even trying to read Finnegans Wake without this invaluable guide The concept is simple McHugh provides a running gloss to Joyce s masterpiece, concisely explaining the multilingual puns and obscure allusions in a layout that matches that of the Penguin edition, so the reader can easily scan from one work to the other This must have been grueling to research and assemble, and the author has my considerable gratitude.

    I used this work quite extensively for my thesis While it definitely didn t answer all of my questions, it gave me a good starting point for a lot of them.

    Unlike the Ulysses annotations, you definitely do need the original to use this It is not so much a book that you can read for your own pleasure, but a tool to figure out as much as you can from Finnegans Wake The layout is great because each page corresponds to that in Wake, but it can get damn cumbersome to have to keep darting your eyes back and forth between two books.


  8. James James says:

    Quite an astounding work to read along side the Wake Its set up to line up line by line and page by page with the printed text unless you re reading Finnegan s Wake on an e reader This and Joseph Campbell s A Skeleton Key to Finnegan s Wake were for me the two indispensable texts for reading the Wake.
