This book guides readers through the complex, pun-based, and dreamlike narrative of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. Defying conventions of plot and continuity, Finnegans Wake has been challenging readers since its first publication in The book includes mesostics on the names of various people. In the forward to X, Cage writes that the volume's texts represent an attempt "to find a way of writing which comes from ideas, is not about them, but which produces them." The book contains the following works: "Foreword" () "Writing for the Fourth Time through Finnegans Wake" ().

  Epstein--the grand old man of Joyce criticism (the first generation of critics working after Joyce's death)--writes in continuation of the 'traditional' book aids to Joyce's "book of the dark" (Finnegans Wake [ ed.] ), such as, for example, Joseph Campbell and Henry Morton Robinson's Skeleton Key to Finnegans Wake (), William York Tindall's A Reader's Guide to Finnegans Wake . James Joyce and the Philosophers at Finnegans Wake explores how Joyce used the philosophers Nicholas Cusanus, Giordano Bruno, and Giambattista Vico as the basis upon which to write Finnegans few Joyce critics know enough about these philosophers and therefore often miss their influence on Joyce's great work.

Virtually every word (including the first one) is either made up or a pun, almost invariably. Buffalo’s next Science & Art Cabaret will seek to tackle the untackleable “Finnegans Wake,” the legendary work of fiction by James Joyce that some critics describe as a dream-like narrative lacking a linear plot. The book is widely considered to be one of the world’s most difficult reads, and many people have lamented it as unreadable.
