DescriptionSet entirely on one day, 16 June 1904, "Ulysses" follows Leopold Bloom and Stephen Daedalus as they go about their daily business in Dublin. From this starting point, James Joyce constructs a novel of extraordinary imaginative richness and depth. Unique in the history of literature, "Ulysses" is one of the most important and enjoyable works of the twentieth century. After its first publication in Paris in 1922, "Ulysses" was published in Great Britain by The Bodley Head in 1936. These editions, as well as the subsequent resettings of 1960 in Great Britain and of 1961 in the US, included an increasing number of transmission and printing errors. In 1977 a team of scholars, led by Professor Hans Walter Gabler, began to study manuscript evidence, typescripts and proofs in an attempt to reconstruct Joyce's creative process in order to come up with a more accurate text. This edition uses the revised 1993 text of Gabler's version.

avoid this edition
My complaint concerns the edition not the book itself. The Gabler edition is controversial but probably the most reliable text available to the general reader. However, this Vintage edition is one of the most shoddily produced books I've ever seen. The type is extremely small (smaller than in the old Bodley Head version of Gabler) - I've never before experienced eye-strain after an hour's reading - and it's impossible to open without breaking the book's spine. The American Random House edition is preferable (ISBN 9780394743127): larger format and clearer type. by Alan Cook
