Anna Livia Plurabelle is an early published chapter from Joyce's famous "work in progress" that would eventually become Finnegans Wake.

Finnegans Wake is a work of comic fiction by Irish author James Joyce, significant for an experimental style and its resulting reputation as one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language. Written in Paris over a period of 17 years, and published in 1939, two years before the author's death, Finnegans Wake was Joyce's final work.
