ULYSSES (Modern Classics Series)

This carefully crafted ebook: “ULYSSES (Modern Classics Series)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It is considered to be one of the most important works of modernist literature, and has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement". Ulysses chronicles the peripatetic appointments and encounters of Leopold Bloom in Dublin in the course of an ordinary day, 16 June 1904. Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's epic poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between its characters and events and those of the poem (the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus to Telemachus). Joyce divided Ulysses into 18 chapters or "episodes". At first glance much of the book may appear unstructured and chaotic; Joyce once said that he had "put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant", which would earn the novel "immortality". James Joyce (1882-1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses, the short-story collection Dubliners, and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Finnegans Wake.

Ulysses Unbound provides a comprehensive and comprehensible guide to James Joyce's masterpiece. Each of its eighteen episodes is discussed individually. A summary of each episode is provided and an account of the part of Homer's Odyssey to which the episode corresponds. This is followed by an analysis of the style of the particular episode, in recognition of the fact that the book is so stylistically diverse. A broader discussion, under the heading 'Commentary' takes the episode's principal themes and function and places them in the context of the overall development of Ulysses. Annotations are also provided on some of the main characters and historical events that come up in the book. These focus on the reality behind the fiction -- the real people who provided so much of the book's material, and who sometimes appear under their own names and sometimes under thin disguises. For an Irish readership, in particular, there is considerable interest in the ordinary Dubliners who, unbeknownst to themselves, make up the fabric of the twentieth-century's modernist masterpiece.Finally, there is a glossary of some of the terms in languages other than English that pepper the text, and pose an obvious problem for many readers. This book also features an overall reading of Ulysses presented in the form of an afterword, a brief account of Joyce's life, and an account of the textual and and publishing history of the book.

Annotations to Finnegans Wake

Roland McHugh’s classic Annotations to Finnegans Wake provides both novice readers and seasoned Joyceans with a wealth of information in an easy-to-use format uniquely suited to this densely layered text. Each page of the Annotations corresponds directly to a page of the standard Viking/Penguin edition of Finnegans Wake and contains line-by-line notes following the placement of the passages to which they refer, enabling readers to look directly from text to notes and back again, with no need to consult separate glossaries or other listings. McHugh’s richly detailed annotations distill decades of scholarship, explicating foreign words, unusual English connotations and colloquial expressions, place names, historical events, song titles and quotations, parodies of other texts, and Joyce’s diverse literary and popular sources. This thoroughly updated fourth edition draws heavily on Internet resources and keyword searches. For the first time, McHugh provides readers with a synopsis of the action of Finnegans Wake. He also expands his examination of possible textual corruption and adds hundreds of new glosses to help scholars, students, and general readers untangle the dense thicket of allusions that crowds every sentence of Joyce’s nearly inscrutable masterpiece.

The Fictions of James Joyce and Wyndham Lewis

Monsters of Nature and Design

Author: Scott W. Klein

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 276

View: 1958

The literary relationship of James Joyce and Wyndham Lewis has previously been described in merely biographical terms. In The Fictions of James Joyce and Wyndham Lewis Scott W. Klein takes Wyndham Lewis's criticism of Ulysses in Time and Western Man and Joyce's implicit response to Lewis in Finnegans Wake as an emblematic opposition signalling significant textual relations within and between the fictions of the two authors. The seeing eye and the world, the creating mind and fiction, language and its aesthetic and political object, and the processes of history: all appear in the work of both Joyce and Lewis, as related thematic structures that raise questions about binarism, dialectic, and the reconciliation of opposites. Detailed examination of key texts by Joyce and Lewis reveals hitherto unperceived affiliations between the two writers, and offers new insight into the politics and aesthetics of modernism.
