'- What is your nation if I may ask, says the citizen.
- Ireland, says Bloom. I was born here. Ireland.'
Ulysses, one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, has had a profound influence on modern fiction. In a series of episodes covering the course of a single day, 16 June 1904, the novel traces the movements of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus through the streets of Dublin. Each episode has its own literary style, and the epic journey of Odysseus is only one of many correspondencies that add layers of meaning to the text.
Today critical interest centres on the authority of the text, and this edition, complete with an invaluable introduction, notes, and appendices, republishes for the first time, without interference, the original 1922 text. Jeri Johnson's commentary guides the reader through this highly allusive novel in an edition acclaimed by scholars and general readers alike.
This updated edition includes new explanatory notes, a revised introduction, and expanded bibliography.
