The Cambridge Centenary Ulysses: The 1922 Text with Essays and Notes cover

This edition offers everything needed by the newcomer to this famous but intimidating text: images, maps, footnotes, and introductory essays by eighteen leading Joyceans.

This book offers accessible support and lively discussions of Joyce's novel to curious general readers as well as students. Its eighteen essays by leading Joyce scholars on the eighteen chapters of the book are also of interest to scholars.James Joyce's Ulysses is considered one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. This new edition - published to celebrate the book's first publication - helps readers to understand the pleasures of this monumental work and to grapple with its challenges. Copiously equipped with maps, photographs, and explanatory footnotes, it provides a vivid and illuminating context for the experiences of Leopold Bloom, Stephen Dedalus, and Molly Bloom, as well as Joyce's many other Dublin characters, on June 16, 1904. Featuring a facsimile of the historic 1922 Shakespeare and Company text, this version also includes Joyce's own errata as well as references to amendments made in later editions. Each of the eighteen chapters of Ulysses is introduced by a leading Joyce scholar. These richly informative pieces discuss the novel's plot and allusions, while also explaining crucial questions that have puzzled and tantalized readers over the last hundred years.

'Absorbing and accessible … The Cambridge Centenary Ulysses can profitably be read by anyone with an interest in Joyce.' Anne Fogarty, Irish Times
'… this edition promises a lot and provides much … Recommended.' W. S. Brockman, Choice
'Extensive knowledge and multiple perspectives have formed around the text of Ulysses and its contingencies of instantiation and reception. The Cambridge Centenary 'Ulysses' as a book impressively accesses these areas of knowledge and understanding. … Scarlett Baron brilliantly masters her concern with 'Wandering Rocks' through intertwined close readings of Joyce's composition with equally close attention to the past century's analytical and critical engagement with this episode.' Hans Walter Gabler, James Joyce Quarterly
