Summary:
This account of Joyce's own engagement with the reception of his work shows how his writing, from the earliest fiction to 'Finnegans Wake', addresses the social conditions of reading. Most notable, he echoes and transforms the responses of some of his actual readers, from family and friends to key figures such as Eglinton and Yeats.
