Book Overview: Ulysses

This revised volume of the acclaimed novel follows the complete unabridged text as corrected in 1961.

Set 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.

This edition contains the original foreword by the author and the historic court ruling to remove the federal ban. It also contains page references to the first American edition of 1934.

"Ulysses will immortalize its author with the same certainty that Gargantua immortalized Rabelais, and The Brothers Karamazov immortalized Dostoyevsky.... It comes nearer to being the perfect revelation of a personality than any book in existence."
- The New York Times

"To my mind one of the most significant and beautiful books of our time."
-Gilbert Seldes, in The Nation

"Talk about understanding "feminine psychology"-- I have never read anything to surpass it, and I doubt if I have ever read anything to equal it."
-Arnold Bennett

"In the last pages of the book, Joyce soars to such rhapsodies of beauty as have probably never been equaled in English prose fiction."
-Edmund Wilson, in The New Republic

James Joyce, born on February 2, 1882, in Dublin, Ireland, is widely celebrated as one of the most important writers of the 20th century. Known for his innovative narrative techniques and multi-layered, often allusive prose, Joyce forever altered the direction of contemporary literature. Raised in a large middle-class Irish-Catholic family, Joyce's Catholic upbringing and education in Ireland deeply influenced his writings and laid foundations for his thematic concerns about identity, relationships, and the complex intertwining of past and present. Though he spent much of his adult life living abroad, Joyce's deep attachment to his Irish homeland is evident in his works, which draw extensively on Dublin's everyday life and its inhabitants. His literary debut, "Dubliners," a collection of 15 short stories, seeks to encapsulate the complexities and paradoxes of Dublin life. Joyce's other major works include "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man," "Ulysses," and "Finnegans Wake" – each is notable for its unique employment of stream-of-consciousness technique, pushing the boundaries of internal monologue, language, and plot structure. Despite battling eye troubles and other health issues throughout his life, Joyce's unwavering commitment to his craft marked him out as a pioneer in modernist literature. His critical explorations of life, death, religion, politics, and culture have earned him a place of reverence in the global literary canon. Joyce's works continue to provoke reflection and debate and, even a century later, they retain their capacity to shock and startle. James Joyce passed away on January 13, 1941, in Zurich, Switzerland, but his profound influence on the world of literature is an enduring legacy.
