Ulysses by James Joyce
Book DescriptionSet entirely on one day, 16 June 1904, "Ulysses" follows Leopold Bloom and Stephen Daedalus as they go about their daily business in Dublin. From this starting point, James Joyce constructs a novel of extraordinary imaginative richness and depth. Unique in the history of literature, "Ulysses" is one of the most important and enjoyable works of the twentieth century. After its first publication in Paris in 1922, "Ulysses" was published in Great Britain by The Bodley Head in 1936. These editions, as well as the subsequent resettings of 1960 in Great Britain and of 1961 in the US, included an increasing number of transmission and printing errors. In 1977 a team of scholars, led by Professor Hans Walter Gabler, began to study manuscript evidence, typescripts and proofs in an attempt to reconstruct Joyce's creative process in order to come up with a more accurate text. This edition uses the revised 1993 text of Gabler's version.

James Joyce was born on 2 February 1882 in Dublin. He studied modern languages at University College, Dublin. After graduating, Joyce moved to Paris for a brief period in 1902. In 1904 Joyce met Nora Barnacle, with whom he would spend the rest of his life and they moved to Europe and settled in Trieste where Joyce worked as a teacher.

In the same year he started work on his last great book, Finnegan's Wake (1939). James Joyce died in Zurich on 13 January 1941.
