An interesting look into the journalism and academic writing of Joyce, which traces delightfully the author's progression in his aesthetic journey. A collection such as this would be expected to be dry in places, and whilst not every page is a joy to read, some texts slog, especially where original manuscript pages are missing.
The essays on James Clarence Mangan are brilliant.
