Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Ulysses has had a profound influence on modern fiction. In a series of episodes covering the course of a single day — 16 June, 1906 — the novel traces the movements of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Daedalus through the streets of Dublin.

Ulysses has been the subject of controversy since copies of the first English edition were burned in 1920 by the New York Post Office Authorities. Today critical interest centers on the authority of the text. which was especially called into question after the 1984 publication of a corrected edition. This edition republishes, for the first time. the original text of the Shakespeare & Co. Paris edition of 1922, complete with facsimile title pages. Here is the text Joyce proofread and approved for publication, serving as an historical document in its own right.

Jeri Johnson's critical introduction helps demystify the complexities of the book, and a full textual publication history, helpful appendices, and 217 pages of explanatory notes further guide the reader through this highly allusive text. In a unique section, there is a guide to the "Linati Schema," or episodes in Ulysses that parallel Homer's episodes in The Odyssey. complete with page numbers, providing quick and easy location of an episode. In the only printing of the 1922 text available. the World's Classics edition provides the reader with perhaps the purest version of Ulysses available today.

"This edition, complete with an invaluable Introduction, map of Dublin, notes, and appendices, republishes for the first time, without interference, the original 1922 text." — In Dublin

"After more than seventy years of editorial corrections, specialists will buy the 'uncorrected' edition for its accuracy. Others should choose it much for Johnson's excellent introduction and notes." — Tim Kendall, Notes and Queries
