Abstract :

The degree to which the animals in 'Finnegans Wake,' a novel by the Irish writer James Joyce, remain grounded in the diverse cultures, geographical regions and ecological niches of the natural world is discussed. Through the depiction of these animals as symbolic signifiers, human cultural figures and narratives are also set in the broader horizon of the spiritual realm.
