Unravels the mysteries of James Joyce.
(New York Times
A daunting and delightful book.
(Modern Fiction Studies
All readers who contemplate any exegetical move whatsoever in the Wake must put the revised Annotations on the top of their pile of reference books.
(James Joyce Quarterly
I don't think we still have readers such as Roland McHugh who read the Wake without any help: most novices read the Wake in one hand and McHugh's Annotations in the other.
(A Collideorscape of Joyce
It is hard to think of any reader of Finnegans Wake who would not have Roland McHugh's Annotations... on his desk.
(Win Van Mierlo James Joyce Literary Supplement
McHugh remains admirable for his collection.
(Tim Conley James Joyce Quarterly
About the Author
Roland McHugh has been studying Finnegans Wake since 1965. In 1973 he moved to Dublin with a view to understanding the book more completely and has lived there ever since. His book, The Sigla of "Finnegans Wake," was described by Clive Hart as "the best book on Finnegans Wake yet written."
