Reviews Nearly 30 years of intense and varied Joyce study has ensued, and it is time for a second stocktaking, one that assesses not only the critical status of each of the works in the canon but addresses as well biographical and aesthetic interests. Bowen and Carens have accomplished this by this collection of essays by 16 authorities, each devoted to a separate subject or work. . . . Each of the essays, averaging 50 pages in length, reviews the critical history of the subject, providing a discursive, selective bibliography as it develops its overview. . . . This Companion and [Thomas J. Rice's James Joyce: A Guide to Research] complement each other, providing a full and deep review of a century's work by and of Joyce. They belong in any library of basic Joyce criticism. Appropriate for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and general readers.—Choice
