Review-A-Day

"Yet, for all its appalling longueurs, Ulysses is a work of high genius. Its importance seems to me to lie, not so much in its opening new doors to knowledge ? unless in setting an example to Anglo-Saxon writers of putting down everything without compunction ? or in inventing new literary forms ? Joyce's formula is really, as I have indicated, nearly seventy-five years old ? as in its once more setting the standard of the novel so high that it need not be ashamed to take its place beside poetry and drama. Ulysses has the effect at once of making everything else look brassy." Edmund Wilson Jr., The New Republic, 1922 (read the entire New Republic review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Regarded today as one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, Ulysses entered the world in a firestorm of controversy. Denounced as obscure, unintelligible, nonsensical, and obscene, it was first published in Paris in 1922 and remained banned in the United States until 1933. Among the innovations that shocked and outraged critics were Joyce's revolutionary use of the interior monologue (better known as "stream of consciousness") and other experimental narrative techniques. Ulysses draws upon a complex network of symbolic parallels from mythology, history, and literature (including a framework and episodes that echo the Odyssey) to document an ordinary day in the lives of three Dubliners. This meticulous reproduction of the original 1922 edition will prove a boon to students, scholars, or anyone interested in great literature. Unabridged republication of the work originally published in 1922 by Shakespeare and Company, Paris.
