"Finnegans Wake has a reputation as the most difficult work of fiction ever written in the English (?) language. This course will offer students the opportunity to judge this for themselves in the context of a supportive and collaborative tutor-led seminar. Each week we will cover a couple of chapters and explore the text from a number of critical and theoretical perspectives, from psychoanalysis to postcolonial theory. Experience of studying Joyce or Modernism is desirable but not required, and it would be helpful if students could read Ulysses in advance of the course."
