This page lists all the sources that have gone into forming the collection to date – a modest list, indeed. The presence or absence of an item from the list is by no means an indication of merit, importance or value. Some valuable studies of Finnegans Wake are missing from the list because I had read them before starting the collection. Some items that do appear on the list have contributed exactly zero elucidations to the collection; they are still listed to note that everything of worth has already been extracted from them (and to mourn a tree dead in vain). If anything, this list is in some ways an indication of my present penchant for thinner volumes. Obviously, the lion's share of the Finnegans Wake studies corpus is absent for the simple reason that it has not yet been read into the collection. Nudge, nudge.

Slowly but surely other people join forces with me in reading books and articles into the collection, for which I am truly grateful. Accordingly, those sources that were not read by me are marked as such using the following abbreviations:

Please understand that many of the listed sources contain much information that cannot be translated into the elucidation format; that is why they are books and articles rather than just lists of notes. The presence of an item in one of the lists below should in no way imply that a serious student of Finnegans Wake is exempt from reading it on his or her own.

Since Fweet does not note the individual source for each specific elucidation, it might not be always obvious where one should look if one wishes, for whatever reason, to refer to the original source of some elucidation found in Fweet's database. To remedy this drawback of Fweet, I highly recommend to use The James Joyce Checklist, an amazing resource that lists virtually every study ever published about Joyce and his work, coupled with a capable search engine. For example, if you are intrigued by some elucidations about cricketers in Finnegans Wake and wish to read the original article(s) from which Fweet may have taken its elucidations, your best bet would be to enter The James Joyce Checklist's Search page (via the link above) and type "cricket*" (i.e. cricket followed by an asterisk) in the text-box marked "with all of the words:". You will receive a list of seven (or so) resources (articles and chapters in books), of which one looks quite promising, namely Ron Malings's "Cricketers at the Wake". A similar approach can be used to locate studies related to many other topics. If, however, The James Joyce Checklist does not offer a solution to your particular query, please remember that you can always contact me (via the "Comment on Me!" button) and I will do my best to help you.

In the book section, special mention should be made of the two volumes that formed, and still form, the core of the collection – the first two editions of McHugh's Annotations to Finnegans Wake (a third edition has already been published) – as well as of the growing number of black volumes that supply it with notebook entries and their sources – the wonderful Deane–Ferrer–Lernout Brepols edition of the Buffalo notebooks.
