Description
Originally reviled as obscure and obscene, Joyce's masterpiece now stands as one of the great literary achievements of the twentieth century. Loosely based on Homer's "Odyssey, " the novel traces the paths of Leopold Bloom and other Dubliners through an ordinary summer day and night in 1904 -- a typical day, transformed by Joyce's narrative powers into an epic celebration of life.
First editions of "Ulysses" rank among the modern rare book trade's most valuable finds. This reprint of the original edition is not only the least expensive version available but also the truest to the author's vision. Many experts have reinterpreted the novel's surviving drafts to produce revised texts, but this edition remains the version that Joyce himself reviewed and corrected prior to the initial publication. A new Introduction by Joyce scholar Enda Duffy offers an enlightening and enthusiastic welcome to a landmark of modern literature.
