The restored Finnegans wake sees the 20 000 pages of Joyce's notes, drafts and proofs collated and clarified to incorporate the 9000 minor yet crucial corrections and amendments, including phrasing, spacings and syntax, to reveal in true detail this masterpiece as the author intended it to be read.
