Ulysses Annotated Students' Edition

Written by James Joyce, Declan Kiberd

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics Series

Ulysses Annotated Students' Edition Synopsis

For Joyce, literature 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'. Written between 1914 and 1921, Ulysses has survived bowdlerization, legal action and bitter controversy. An undisputed modernist classic, its ceaseless verbal inventiveness and astonishing wide-ranging allusions confirms its standing as an imperishable monument to the human condition. Declan Kiberd says in his introduction that Ulysses is 'an endlessly open book of utopian epiphanies. It holds a mirror up to the colonial capital that was Dublin on 16 June 1904, but it also offers redemptive glimpses of a future world which might be made over in terms of those utopian moments.' This Annotated Student Edition has full explanatory notes and line numbers for critical reference.

He is best known for his landmark novel Ulysses (1922) and its controversial successor Finnegans Wake (1939), ...
