We follow (or at least try to follow) Joyce's mind in this breathtaking, confusing, unclear travel through the dreams of Finnegan. And we do not always succeed. On one hand, I appreciated all the games Joyce plays with words and references, really a genius work, on the other hand, without an on-line guide explaining some of the toughest passages, it would have been almost impossible. So I praise the well planned casuality of the big mash of words that submerges the reader, but I blame a bit the total scomposition of the classic way of conceiving a literary work, being this almost an anticipation of an antinovel....Continua Nascondi

Still one of the most itellectual, cunning enlightening piece of reading ever taken. A book that transcend the art of writing by itself and definitely transcend the reading too. A big thanks goes to the italian translator Mr. Luigi Schenoni, probably without his help and is never ending knowledge I'd never been able to get a single word from Joyce's Finnegans Wake. A unique book, a life long lecture. ...Continua Nascondi
