Ulysses Annotated

Edition: 2nd
Format: Paperback
Pub. Date: 1/14/2008
Publisher(s): Ingram Publisher Services, Inc.


Don Gifford's annotations to Joyce's great modern classic comprise a specialized encyclopedia that will inform any reading ofUlysses.The suggestive potential of minor details was enormously fascinating to Joyce, and the precision of his use of detail is a most important aspect of his literary method. The annotations in this volume illuminate details which are not in the public realm for most of us. The annotations gloss place names, define slang terms, give capsule histories of institutions and political and cultural movements and figures, supply bits of local and Irish legend and lore, explain religious nomenclature and practices, trace literary allusions and references to other cultures. Annotations are keyed not only to the reading text of the critical edition ofUlysses,but to the standard 1961 Random House edition, and the current Modern Library and Vintage texts.
