Bronze by Gold The Music of Joyce
The contributors to this volume investigate several themes about music's relationship to the literary compositions of James Joyce: music as a condition to which Joyce aspired; music theory as a useful way of reading his works; and musical compositions inspired by or connected with him.
"The essays to which this reader will most likely return to are those by McCourt and Reilly, each of which deepens our knowledge of the culture out of which Joyce's work grew: Hepburn, whose political and psychological perspective to the study of Joyce and music: and Martin, who offers a definitive account of an important episode in Joyce's musical life." -- The Comparist
