Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
The first of these two essays studies the evolution of Joyce’s style and its culmination in Finnegans Wake, focusing on the way Joyce used multi-leveled irony to carry the novel into the realm of myth. The second is a detailed analysis of Borges’ “The Garden of Forking Paths,” which, like Joyce’s works, deals with the idea of cyclic time, and a synoptic discussion of four other stories by this Argentinian writer. L.A. Murillo shows how Borges uses a technique of compression rather than mythic expansion, so that the meaning of his stories is educed by the reader’s response to them.
