"Some critical readings we may feel are persuasive and apt, and others we may disagree with or find dissatisfying, but there is a third kind of reading: those interpretations whose logic is more or less entirely self-sustaining and so unassailable. Finnegans Wake is one of those cultural artifacts around which a small culture of such readings has developed over the decades, and this talk makes the case for acknowledging and attempting to understand this phenomenon as a significant part of the social history of the text."
