Scandinavian Elements of Finnegan's Wake

Cover of Scandinavian Elements of Finnegan's Wake

In Scandinavian Elements of Finnegan’s Wake, Dounia Bunis Christiani addresses herself to an enormous task: examining the significance of Scandinavian history, literature, and languages for the composition of James Joyce’s masterwork. Whereas critical studies of Joyce tend to fall into two categories – those exploring the philosophical grounding of his works and those providing close textual readings – the significance of Christiani’s work lies in her deep historical and cultural analysis.
