As James Joyce was working on Finnegans Wake, he asked his friend T.S. Eliot to shepherd an early extract, simply known as ‘Work in Progress’ into print. This celebrated episode, Anna Livia Plurabelle, was the first part of Joyce’s extraordinary text to be published in England, printed in pamphlet form in 1930. It became the best-known section of Finnegans Wake, and one of Joyce’s favourites; revised and published independently more times than any other piece. This new edition in the Faber Modern Classics series includes a new foreword by Edna O’Brien.
‘His writing is not about something; it is that something itself.’ Samuel Beckett
