Long considered the essential guide to Joyce’s famously difficult work, Roland McHugh’s Annotations to “Finnegans Wake” provides both novice readers and seasoned Joyceans with a wealth of information in an easy-to-use format uniquely suited to this densely layered text. The reader can thus look directly from text to notes and back again, with no need to consult separate glossaries or other listings.
McHugh’s richly detailed notes distill decades of annoations, explicating foreign words, unusual English connotations and colloquial expressions, place names, historical events, song titles and quotations, parodies of other texts, and Joyce’s diverse literary and popular sources.
The third edition has added material reflecting fifteen years of research, including significant new insights from Joyce’s compositional notebooks the “Buffalo Notebooks”now being edited for the first time.

Jan 03, Geoff rated it it was amazing Shelves: I could not imagine a reading of the Wake without McHugh on the desktop within arm’s rach. The farther along one goes with McHugh the more one is astounded by his achievement. One can ask for no better guide through Joyce’s nightworld than this, that takes the text apart at the level of fragment and instance of construction of etym.

While it definitely didn’t answer all of annotatiosn questions, it gave me a good starting point for a lot of them.

McHugh gives us a single page for each page of the Wake with line-by-line annotations covering suggested translations, puns, allusions, and historical references.

As McHugh explains in the preface, “the reader examining any of Joyce’s pages simply holds the Annotations page alongside it and examines the area corresponding to the passage” vi. The annotations are culled from dozens of critical works by several Joyce scholars and McHugh avoids unnecessary exegesis.

Rather than read a pile of traditional guides to the Wake, get this volume and read Joyce as he intended. May 28, Fijnegans added it Shelves: Absolutely essential to making local sense of the book. That’s all there is to it. Yes, the book has flaws. No, it doesn’t give you everything you might want, even for what it claims to do.
No, it isn’t a proper annotation in that when Joyce makes references to various things, McHugh only tells you what he is referencing, but generally nothing about what is referenced, meaning it’s on you to look up that information if you desire.
But, armed with the understanding that McHugh annotstions far from the f Absolutely essential to making local sense of the book. But, armed with the understanding that McHugh is far from the final word, I can’t think of a better source for figuring out what the hell a “felibrine trancoped metre affectioned by Taiocebo” is supposed to be. Plenty of books will offer ready-made interpretations of the book—McHugh offers you the tools you need to build your own.

Apr 23, Barnaby Thieme rated it it was amazing Shelves: I can’t imagine even trying to read Finnegans Wake without this invaluable guide. The concept is simple – McHugh provides a running gloss to Joyce’s masterpiece, concisely explaining the multilingual puns and obscure allusions in a layout that matches that of the Penguin edition, so the reader can easily scan from one finnefans to the other. This must have been grueling to research and assemble, and the author has my considerable gratitude.

Unlike the Ulysses annotations, you definitely do need the original annotwtions use this. It is not so much a book that you can read for your own pleasure, but a tool to figure out as much as you can from Finnegans Wake. The layout is great because each page corresponds to that in “Wake,” but it can get damn cumbersome to have to keep darting your eyes back and forth between two books. Oct 28, James rated it it was amazing. Quite annotatinos astounding work to read along side the “Wake”.
Its set up to line up line by line and page by page with the printed text–unless you’re reading Finnegan’s Wake on an e-reader.
Nov 20, Ed Smiley added it. I can’t really have been said to have “read”. But it has useful page by page notes on Finnegans Wake Finnegans Wakewhich I consult from time to time.
The latter I’ve read 4 times or so. Jul 28, Max Nemtsov rated it really liked it Shelves: May 12, Neil rated it it was amazing. A great help for identifying some of Joyce’s sources.
Comprehensive, but luckily McHugh leaves plenty of the Wake for the rest of us to unravel.

The psychological drama is the decomposition of Dostoevsky Idiot into a stolid man of Irish descent and he leaves the rest to fate in unrest of techological advances as he nurtures his soul and knowledge among the denizen nature of ancient human beings.
