Ulysses (Modern Classics S.)

 .Ulysses_(Modern_Classics_S.).

Title: Ulysses (Modern Classics S.)
Author: Joyce, James
ISBN: 014003000X
Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd
Year Published: April 1969
Our Price: £5.78 GBP ($0.00 USD)
Description: Amazon.co.uk Review: Ulysses has been labelled dirty, blasphemous and unreadable. In a famous 1933 court decision, Judge John M. Woolsey declared it an emetic book--although he found it not quite obscene enough to disallow its importation into the United States--and Virginia Woolf was moved to decry James Joyces cloacal obsession. None of these descriptions, however, do the slightest justice to the novel. To this day it remains the modernist masterpiece, in which the author takes both Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. It is funny, sorrowful, and even (in its own way) suspenseful. And despite the exegetical industry that has sprung up in the last 75 years, Ulysses is also a compulsively readable book. Even the verbal vaudeville of the final chapters can be navigated with relative ease, as long as youre willing to be buffeted, tickled, challenged and (occasionally) vexed by Joyces astonishing command of the English language. : : Among other things, a novel is simply a long story, and the first question about any story is What happens? In the case of Ulysses, the answer could be Everything. William Blake, one of literatures sublime myopics, saw the universe in a grain of sand. Joyce saw it in Dublin, Ireland, on June 16, 1904, a day distinguished by its utter normality. Two characters, Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom, go about their separate business, crossing paths with a gallery of inforgettable Dubliners. We watch them teach, eat, loiter, argue and (in Blooms case) masturbate. And thanks to the books stream- of-consciousness technique--which suggests no mere stream but an impossibly deep, swift-running river-- were privy to their thoughts, emotions and memories. The result? Almost every variety of human experience is crammed into the accordion-folds of a single day, which makes Ulysses not just an experimental work but the very last word in realism. : : Both characters add their glorious intonations to the music of Joyces prose. Dedaluss accent--that of a freelance aesthetician, who dabbles here and there in what we might call Early Yeats Lite-- will be familiar to readers of Portrait of an Artist As a Young Man. But Blooms wistful sensualism (and nanve curiosity) is something else entirely. Seen through his eyes, a rundown corner of a Dublin graveyard is a figure for hope and hopelessness, mortality and dogged survival: Mr Bloom walked unheeded along his grove by saddened angels, crosses, broken pillars, family vaults, stone hopes praying with upcast eyes, old Irelands hearts and hands. More sensible to spend the money on some charity for the living. Pray for the repose of the soul of. Does anybody really? --James Marcus --This text refers to the Paperback edition. : : Book Description: Ulysses has been the subject of controversy since copies of the first English edition were burned by the New York Post Office authorities. Today critical interest centres on the authority of the text, and this edition, complete with an invaluable Introduction, notes, and appendices, republishes for the first time, without interference, the original 1922 text. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.Comments: CORNER CREASED.
