James Joyce and Genetic Criticism presents contemporary scholarship in genetic criticism and Joyce studies. In considering how evolutionary themes enhance the definition of the genetic method in interpreting texts, this volume presents a variety of manuscript-based analyses that engage how textual meaning, through addition and omission, grows. In doing so, this volume covers a wide-range of topics concerning Joycean genetics, some of which include Joyce’s editorial practice, the forthcoming revised edition of
Finnegans Wake, the genetic relationship between
Giacomo Joyce and
Ulysses, the method and approach required for creating an online archive of
Finnegans Wake, and the extensive genesis of “Penelope”.
Contributors are: Shinjini Chattopadhyay, Tim Conley, Luca Crispi, Robbert-Jan Henkes, Sangam MacDuff, Genevieve Sartor, Fritz Senn, Sam Slote, Dirk Van Hulle.

University of Toronto Quarterly, the
Journal of Modern Literature,
Deleuze Studies and
