Ulysses by James Joyce
Book DescriptionJames Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, tells of the diverse events which befall Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus in Dublin on one day in June 1904. It is considered to be one of the most important works of modernist literature and was hailed as a work of genius by W. B. Yeats, T. S. Eliot and Ernest Hemingway. Scandalously frank, wittily erudite, mercurially eloquent, resourcefully comic and generously humane, Ulysses offers the reader a life-changing experience.

This work of art reflects life in Ireland at the turn of the last century, and by rejecting euphemism, reveals to the Irish their unromantic reality. Each of the 15 stories offers glimpses into the lives of ordinary Dubliners, and collectively they paint a portrait of a nation.

James Joyce the Dover Reader, Paperback (February 2016)View all books by James Joyce
Primer of influential and innovative works features Portrait of the Artist in its entirety; excerpts from Ulysses; the short story collection Dubliners; his play, Exiles; and selected poetry and letters.
UK Kirkus Review » Scholars now say that Joyce calculated his novel mathematically so that the centremost word of the book is 'love'. He set it in Dublin on the day, 16 June 1904, that he first met Nora Barnacle, the woman who shared his life and bore him his alcoholic son and mad daughter. The language, so frequently comical, achieves a perfect accuracy that inclines the aspiring novelist to despair of ever, even glancingly, finding so bon a mot. So wide is the rendered experience that, like the Bible, Ulysses becomes appropriate to all considerations of life. Nothing much happens. People talk a lot. As Bernard Shaw said - there is no other book that so well conveys the life that Dublin offers to young men. Review by Frank Delaney, author of 'The Sins of the Mothers'. (Kirkus UK)
US Kirkus Review » In 1984 was published the news-capturing scholarly work, the "Critical and Synoptic Edition" of James Joyce's Ulysses, which, as The New York Times said, corrected "almost 5,000 omissions, transpositions and other errors included in previous editions of the seminal 20th-century novel." That remarkable work of scholarship, labor, and love, however, ran to three volumes in heft and rang up at $200 in price. Here, then, comes the single-volume trade-book edition of the same edited and restored text, placing the great novel, in as close to its originally-intended form as can be achieved, within reach of the common reader. Missing only is the vast scholarly apparatus of the longer version, though this one comes with a pleasantly helpful preface by Joyce biographer Richard Ellmann and a methodologically explanatory afterward by Hans Walter Gabler. A welcome event. Publication date, readers will note, is Bloomsday. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - James Joyce
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. His first published work was a book of poems called Chamber Music (1907). This was followed by Dubliners (1914), A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and the play Exiles (1918). In 1915 the First World War forced Joyce and Nora and their two children to move to Zurich. Joyce's most famous novel, Ulysses, was published in Paris in 1922. 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.
