This second edition of Colin MacCabe's James Joyce and the Revolution of the Word reprints a classic critical text on Joyce and adds a wealth of new material which places the text in its political and historical context. The argument links politics and literature, sex and language, to provide an account of Joyce which places him continually in both Irish and European history.
