In the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, there are at least three references to Joyce and his works:
- A brief reference in a draft of the lecture "A Secret Vice".
- A note on the back of a manuscript page of The Lord of the Rings, held at the collections of the Marquette University.
- The line "Anna Livia Plurabelle" (from Joyce's Finnegans Wake) at the top of a linguistic manuscript.
Works comparing the literature of Joyce and Tolkien include: "Yeats, Joyce and Tolkien, the Artist as Magician" in Mythlore 36 (1983), Interrupted Music: The Making of Tolkien's Mythology (2005), and The Loss and the Silence: Aspects of Modernism in the Works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien & Charles Williams (2011).
