This volume, drawn together by Joyce scholar Edmund L. Epstein from forty years of Campbell"s lectures, articles and unpublished writings on the novels of James Joyce, serves as a lens to examine both the nature of myth in art, and the myriad-minded work of the man whom many have called the greatest literary artist of the modern era. Campbell examines in detail Joyce"s trio of brilliant novels, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses and the labyrinthine Finnegans Wake. An appendix includes both question and answer sessions from Campbell"s lectures, and a series of articles penned by Campbell and his colleague, Henry Morton Robinson, unveiling the Wake-like themes that suffused Thorton Wilder"s Broadway hit, The Skin of Our Teeth.
