Finnegan's Wake: Abridged and Edited Edition
In 1939, when Irish author James Joyce released Finnegan’s Wake, he was only able to have it distributed in Britain, Ireland, France, Australia and Canada. In an attempt to appease the censorship rules put in place in the United States by the America First Party, an edited edition was released. Edited by William Faulkner, Joyce considered this adaptation “pure butchery” and eventually said that he’d not publish in the US until they agreed to leave his works alone.
