Review quote

"Ulysses will immortalize its author with the same certainty that "Gargantua" immortalized Rabelais, and "The Brothers Karamazov" immortalized Dostoyevsky.... It comes nearer to being the perfect revelation of a personality than any book in existence." -"The New York Times" "To my mind one of the most significant and beautiful books of our time." -Gilbert Seldes, in "The Nation" "Talk about understanding "feminine psychology"-- I have never read anything to surpass it, and I doubt if I have ever read anything to equal it." -Arnold Bennett "In the last pages of the book, Joyce soars to such rhapsodies of beauty as have probably never been equaled in English prose fiction." -Edmund Wilson, in "The New Republic"

Back cover copy

The 1934 text, as corrected and reset in 1961. Ulysses is one of the most influential novels of the twentieth century. It was not easy to find a publisher in America willing to take it on, and when Jane Jeap and Margaret Anderson started printing extracts from the book their literary magazine The Little Review in 1918, they were arrested and charged with publishing obscenity. They were fined $100, and even The New York Times expressed satisfaction with their conviction. Ulysses was not published in book form until 1922, when another American woman, Sylvia Beach, published it in Paris for her Shakespeare & Company. Ulysses was not available legally in any English-speaking country until 1934, when Random House successfully defended Joyce against obscenity charges and published it in the Modern Library. This edition follows the complete and unabridged text as corrected and reset in 1961. Judge John Woolsey's decision lifting the ban against Ulysses is reprinted, along with a letter from Joyce to Bennett Cerf, the publisher of Random House, and the original foreword to the book by Morris L. Ernst, who defended Ulysses during the trial.
