Ulysses: Second Edition
A master of modernist literature, Joyce's work has long been highly praised in literary circles and garnered support from writers such as, Ezra Pound, T.S Eliot and W.B. Yeats. Initially rejected by several Printers in Dublin and London for containing 'obscene' content, the novel made it into the hands of readers in 1921 when The Little Review published chapter thirteen. Set in eighteen episodes and structured around Homer's Odyssey Ulysses first appeared, as it were, in 'exile', and, like its cosmopolitan author, in a complicated push-pull relationship with its language (English) and its setting (Ireland). In the novel Joyce returns to many of the themes he had broached in his previous works, including the subjects of nationalism, colonialism, religion, thwarted identity and sexuality.
This version of Ulysses includes the revisions that James Joyce made to the novel during his lifetime.
