Abstract:

This thesis presents an analysis and interpretation of Joycean literary devices, narrative techniques and rhetorical strategies that have been integrated by Robert Anton Wilson in his novel Masks of the Illuminati. The author shows how Wilson uses word games of Finnegans Wake and other devices to depict dreams in his novel and "to conceal and reveal a variety of levels of meaning and postcolonial insight" (p. v-iv). Narrative techniques examined include multiple viewpoints, combined words, multi-lingual puns and webs of allusions.
