B/W Illustrations

The works of James Joyce are part of the literary canon worldwide as is the need to have his works broken out into palatable pieces, even for the most avid of fans. In Joyce For Beginners, W. Terrence Gordon does just that. With the assistance of Lynsey Hutchinson’s humorous illustrations throughout, Gordon successfully captures the bits and pieces of Joyce’s works and reconstructs them in a picturesque way for the reader to visualize the stories. Gordon also examines Joyce’s passion for music and how it materializes in his writing. This will be the perfect compendium to any Joyce library.


W. Terrence (Terry) Gordon is author and editor of more than twenty books. Joyce For Beginners now joins his three other titles in the For Beginners series on Marshall McLuhan, Linguistics, and Saussure. He is a native of Montreal and has taught in six universities across Canada from Albert to Nova Scotia.
