This original three-part study examines Russia, Russians and their culture in Joyce's life and establishes a Russian theme running through his work as a whole, from the earliest writings to Finnegans Wake. It discusses contacts and parallels between Joyce and three Russian figures: Bely, Nabokov and Eisenstein (and, more briefly, Pasternak). Thirdly, it details the Soviet reception of Joyce from 1922 until publication of the first Russian Ulysses in 1989, as well as surveying Marxist approaches to Joyce. A full bibliography of Russian and western sources is included.
