Finnegans Wake

The 1992 Minerva edition of James Joyce’s 1939 novel contains an introduction by Burgess, who also in 1966 prepared A Shorter Finnegans Wake, described thus:

Anthony Burgess has cut down Joyce’s masterpiece to its bare essentials and provided a sort of waking commentary, as well as a long and enlightening introduction. He hopes that readers of this small labour of love will be tempted to proceed to the whole big uncut book and learn to revel in its humour and homely profundity.
