FROM THE FOREWORD
By now, no one needs debate the merits of Ulysses; it is one of the greatest novels of all time and a worthwhile addition to any collection.
However, when Ulysses was first published in The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach in 1922, it caused a sensation.
Audiences and critics alike had never read anything like it; the book’s acrid dissonances and sexually satanic rhythms seemed positively barbaric.
Even after nearly 100 years this free form prose/poetry tour de force still sounds fresh, scary, new and beautiful. Astonishing really.
Praise for this new edition:
The countless admirers of James Joyce and his awe-inspiring Ulysses will be delighted by the appearance of this magnificently faithful and lavishly produced twenty-first century edition.
