BeschreibungJames Joyce is now widely considered the most influential writer of the twentieth century. His name and his most important works appeared again and again in fin-de-millennium surveys. This is the case not only in the English-speaking world, but also in many European literatures. Joyce's influence is most pronounced in French, German and Italian literatures, where translations of most of his works appeared during his life-time and where he had a clear impact on his fellow-writers. In other countries and cultures, his influence took more time to register, sometimes after the war in the fifties and sixties, and sometimes only in the final decade of the century. This was the case in most of the languages of Eastern Europe, where the translation of Joyce's work could only begin after the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s.This book contains two volumes.Series Editor: Dr Elinor Shaffer FBA, Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London Contributors to the volume include: Sonja Basic (University of Zagreb) Eric Bulson, (Columbia University) Astradur Eysteinsson (University of Reykjavik) Kalina Filipova (University of Sofia) Marta Goldmann (University of Budapest) Jakob Greve (University of Copenhagen) Manana Khergiani (New York) Teresa Iribarren (University of Barcelona) Onno R.

Pressestimmen."..the work stands as a gripping analysis of the kaleidoscope responses to Joyce throughout Europe's communities across numerous historical and political periods. ."..The Reception of James Joyce in Europe offers a remarkable collection of scintillating essays providing rigorous information and scholarly illumination. The work makes a major contribution to Joyce studies, enriching the field with new perspectives from reception studies, comparative literature, and translation studies. Ultimately, The Reception of James Joyce in Europe undermines those attitudes and critical tendencies that have turned Joyce into the patrimony of an exclusive Anglo-American club. This is a highly recommended book for scholars willing to experience a (European) epiphany."- M. Teresa Caneda Cabrera, James Joyce Quarterly, Vol.44 No. 1--Sanford Lakoff
