Joyce’s Progress Through London: Conquering the English Publishing Market


Drawing on archival research and on recent scholarship that has explored issues of modernist reputation and reception, this essay examines Joyce’s collaborations in London’s literary marketplace in materialist and economic lines. Special focus is on the key roles that T. S. Eliot, C. K. Ogden, and Herbert Hughes played in the promotion of Joyce’s work in London’s public sphere from 1929 to 1931. The essay sheds light on the publication and dissemination of extracts from Work in Progress in the form of a pamphlet and a gramophone disc, as well as on the contract for Finnegans Wake with Faber and Faber.
