The Dublin Illustrated Edition of Ulysses, endorsed by The James Joyce Centre, meticulously recreates the 1922 text.
The unique Dublin Illustrated Edition, endorsed by The James Joyce Centre, meticulously recreates the 1922 text, and has been published to celebrate the Global Bloomsday Gathering, a live online reading of Ulysses which starts on 15 June 2013 at the James Joyce centre. Ulysses chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904. Ulysses' stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose-full of puns, parodies, and allusions, as well as its rich characterisations and broad humour, made the book a highly regarded novel in the Modernist pantheon. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Ulysses first on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.
very agreeable and pleasing to handle -- Books Ireland [the illustrations] are homely and quite evocative representations that do not overshadow the text ... they are actually company for the reader and leave room for the imagination to breathe freely -- Books Ireland given that Ulysses has been so commented on and the text even messed about with in some editions, many will be glad of the opportunity to read the book as Joyce intended -- Books Ireland
James Joyce (1882-1941) was born and educated in Dublin. His first collection of short stories was published in 1904 and was met with great praise in Ireland and abroad. Whilst living in Paris, he wrote Ulysses which quickly established Joyce as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century. Every year on 16 June, Joyceans across the globe celebrate Bloomsday, the day on which the action of Ulysses took place, proving Joyce's importance to literature. In addition to editions of book by James Joyce, there are several other joyce-related titles available from O'Brien Press: you can see them all at www.obrien.ie/james-joyce.
