James Stephen Atherton (1910 – ) British Joyce scholar, former lecturer at Wigan District Mining and technical College, Wigan, England, and visiting professor at the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1965. In 1959, Atherton published The Books at the Wake: A Study of Literary allusions in James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, a work he revised and expanded in 1974. The Books at the Wake is a detailed study of the written sources Joyce used when composing Finnegans Wake and of the function these sources play in his work. It had a seminal impact on Joyce scholarship, providing an important foundation for a range of subsequent studies of the diverse literary influences on Joyce’s last work. Atherton also wrote the introduction and notes to the 1965 Heinemann edition of A Portrait of the Author as a Young Man
