This reader-friendly introduction makes Joyce asscessible by combining the excitement of reading his words with the excitement of interpreting them.


Irish Studies Review
"Seidel has written an admirable brief introduction for the generalreader. Obviously the product of many years of teaching Joyce, it'sconcise, fresh and very accessible." Ronald Bush, St John'sCollege, University of Oxford <!--end--> "Entering the Joycean labyrinth - whether for the firsttime, or the twenty-first - one could not wish for a wiser,more gracious, better-humored guide than Michael Seidel. He rangesover the full spectrum of Joyce's writing with a lightness of touchand a sureness of direction that makes being his student anunmitigated delight." Kevin J. H. Dettmar, Southern IllinoisUniversity "In James Joyce: A Short Introduction, Michael Seidel haspulled off one of the most difficult feats in current publishing.Seidel manages to capture anew what it is that makes Joyce'swriting unique, and to elucidate even his most abstruse ofabstrusities with a directness, clarity and infectious pleasurewhich reminds one all over again why one loves Joyce." JeriJohnson, Exeter College, University of Oxford "In James Joyce: A Short Introduction, Seidel hasprovided a clear and accessible distillation of the biographicaland historical background to Joyce's work as well as a set ofmethodological tools designed to help the 'general reader'understand and interpret Joyce's use of language and narrativeform. Resisting the urge to 'decode' Joyce's style by appealing tocontent, Seidel has done an admirable job of demystifying some ofJoyce's techniques without dismissing or devaluing theirimportance."
