Ulysses: The Corrected Text

Ulysses: The Corrected Text Cover

 

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:

Considered the greatest 20th century novel written in English, in this edition Walter Gabler uncovers previously unseen text. It is a disillusioned study of estrangement, paralysis and the disintegration of society.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
