This third edition, newly revised and updated, includes comprehensive and all-new annotations by Joyce scholar Sam Slote, Trinity College, Dublin, and Marc A. Mamigonian and John Turner. It contains over 9,000 notes.
Folkeudgave af James Joyces mesterværk, nyoversat, illustreret og forsynet med omfattende noter. Ligesom i andre oversættelser og udgaver, følger læseren Leopold Bloom på hans vandring gennem Dublin den 16. juni 1904. Men i denne udgave er der gjort alt for at læseren følger Bloom hele vejen hjem til Molly. Romanen Ulysses skræmmer mange læsere, som oplever at den er for stor, for vigtig og for vanskeligt tilgængelig. Formentlig kommer kun et fåtal hele vejen igennem bogen ved egen kraft. For at hjælpe læseren på øjenhøjde med Joyces tekst har oversætterne forsynet deres udgave med mere end 3.000 fodnoter. Her får man sangteksterne, avissladderen og den katolske liturgi serveret lige ved hånden. Bent Wibergs og Jens Feilbergs nye oversættelse af Ulysses er resultat af mange års arbejde med at skabe en præcis gengivelse på dansk, uden at sætte originalens energi og tone over styr. Som noget helt særligt er folkeudgaven illustreret. Hvert af bogens tre hovedafsnit åbner med en billedsekvens af kunstneren Helle Frøsig, som introducerer bogens temaer gennem collageagtige sammenstillinger af historiske billedelementer.
ULYSSES er et af de helt centrale og nyskabende værker i 1900tallets litteratur og et højdepunkt i den litterære modernisme - provokerende, morsom, rørende og ind i mellem ganske utilgængelig. En universel historie om kærlighed, svigt og magt - en bog, der er svaret på alt!Nu udkommer dette storværk i en ny frisk og spændstig dansk oversættelse af Karsten Sand Iversen.Romanen skildrer Dublins brogede liv i løbet af en enkelt dag, d. 16. juni 1904 nærmere bestemt, og følger to hovedpersoner - den unge skolelærer Stephen Dedalus og den midaldrende jødiske annoncesælger Leopold Bloom - på deres færd gennem byen, mens den giver et højst intimt indblik i deres adfærd og tankeliv. PRESSEN SKREV:»Der er liv og poesi i Karsten Sand Iversens flotte og dristige nye oversættelse af et af verdenslitteraturens mesterværker.«****** – Lars Ole Sauerberg, Jyllands-Posten»Skøn og sjofel, sofistikeret og saftig, vild og vanvittig, krævende og kulret kommer Joyces ’Ulysses’ os i møde i Karsten Sand Iversens fuldt ud prægtige gendigtning. Det er nu, ’Ulysses’ skal læses eller genlæses.”****** – Mikkel Bruun Zangenberg, Politiken»Karsten Sand Iversens fænomenale nyoversættelse slår Mogens Boisens gamle oversættelse af marken […] Med Joyces skandaløse, skabrøse værk blev fortællekunsten absolut moderne«– Erik Skyum-Nielsen, Information »Årets vigtigste klassikeroversættelse udkommer i dag. James Joyces skelsættende " Ulysses" er i den nye udgave både præcis og musikalsk«– Michael Bach Henriksen, Kristeligt Dagblad»Ulysses er meget morsommere og langt mere spændende end sit rygte. Den kan sagtens læses af almindelige dødelige. Og i den nye oversættelse får vi endda en mere personlig version, der har karakter ligesom originalen« – Kristian Ditlev Jensen, Weekendavisen
This strikingly illustrated edition presents Joyce’s epic novel in a new, more accessible light, while showcasing the incredible talent of a leading Spanish artist. The neo-figurative artist Eduardo Arroyo (1937–2018), regarded today as one of the greatest Spanish painters of his generation, dreamed of illustrating James Joyce’s Ulysses. Although he began work on the project in 1989, it was never published during his lifetime: Stephen James Joyce, Joyce’s grandson and the infamously protective executor of his estate, refused to allow it, arguing that his grandfather would never have wanted the novel illustrated. In fact, a limited run appeared in 1935 with lithographs by Henri Matisse, which reportedly infuriated Joyce when he realized that Matisse, not having actually read the book, had merely depicted scenes from Homer’s Odyssey. Now available for the first time in English, this unique edition of the classic novel features three hundred images created by Arroyo—vibrant, eclectic drawings, paintings, and collages that reflect and amplify the energy of Joyce’s writing.
'Everybody knows now that Ulysses is the greatest novel of the century' Anthony Burgess, ObserverFollowing the events of one single day in Dublin, the 16th June 1904, and what happens to the characters Stephen Dedalus, Leopold Bloom and his wife Molly, Ulysses is a monument to the human condition. It has survived censorship, controversy and legal action, and even been deemed blasphemous, but remains an undisputed modernist classic: ceaselessly inventive, garrulous, funny, sorrowful, vulgar, lyrical and ultimately redemptive. It confirms Joyce's belief that literature 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'.'The most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape' T. S. Eliot'Intoxicating ... a towering work, in its word play surpassing even Shakespeare' Guardian
A corrected text, first published in 1984 after seven years textual research. Professor Gabler and his team of scholars returned to the original manuscripts, drafts and proofs in order to reconstruct as closely as possible the creative process by which Joyce wrote "Ulysses".
With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex.James Joyce's astonishing masterpiece, Ulysses, tells of the diverse events which befall Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus in Dublin on 16 June 1904, during which Bloom's voluptuous wife, Molly, commits adultery.Initially deemed obscene in England and the USA, this richly-allusive novel, revolutionary in its Modernistic experimentalism, was hailed as a work of genius by W. B. Yeats, T. S. Eliot and Ernest Hemingway.Scandalously frank, wittily erudite, mercurially eloquent, resourcefully comic and generously humane, Ulysses offers the reader a life-changing experience.
The portrayal of Stephen Dedalus's Dublin childhood and youth, his quest for identity through art and his gradual emancipation from the claims of family, religion and Ireland itself, is also an oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce and a universal testament to the artist's 'eternal imagination'.
With an essay by J. I. M. Stewart.'Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears ... But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work'From a child grappling with the death of a fallen priest, to a young woman's dilemma over whether to elope to Argentina with her lover, to the dance party at which a man discovers just how little he really knows about his wife, these fifteen stories bring the gritty realism of existence in Joyce's native Dublin to life. With Dubliners, James Joyce reinvented the art of fiction, using a scrupulous, deadpan realism to convey truths that were at once blasphemous and sacramental.The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
This edition, published to coincide with the eightieth anniversary of the first publication in 1939, fully incorporates Joyce's manuscript amendments and includes a critical introduction by Dr Sam Slote of Trinity College Dublin."

Introduction and Notes by Laurence Davies, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire.Living overseas but writing, always, about his native city, Joyce made Dublin unforgettable. The stories in Dubliners show us truants, seducers, gossips, rally-drivers, generous hostesses, corrupt politicians, failing priests, amateur theologians, struggling musicians, moony adolescents, victims of domestic brutishness, sentimental aunts and poets, patriots earnest or cynical, and people striving to get by.In every sense an international figure, Joyce was faithful to his own country by seeing it unflinchingly and challenging every precedent and piety in Irish literature.
This book offers accessible support and lively discussions of Joyce's novel to curious general readers as well as students. Its eighteen essays by leading Joyce scholars on the eighteen chapters of the book are also of interest to scholars.

WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY DR DIETER FUCHS AND JOSEPH O'CONNORAgainst the backdrop of nineteenth century Dublin, a boy becomes a man: his mind testing its powers, obsessions taking hold and loosening again, the bonds of family, tradition, nation and religion transforming from supports into shackles;
Finnegans Wakeis Joyce's last great work, and is formulated as one dense, tongue-twisting soundscape. It also remains the mosthilarious, 'obscene', book of innuendos ever to be imagined.
One of the most significant literary works of the twentieth century, and one of the most innovative. Young Irish Catholic, Stephen Dedalus, rejects religion and national ties to develop unfettered as an artist. Stronly autobiographical, the novel is one of the founding texts of Modernism and the precursor of Ulysses.
The complete text of James Joyce's dream masterpiece, one of the great works of twentieth-century literature. This copyright edition incorporates Joyce's own alterations and corrections to the first printing in 1939. 'Here words are not the polite contortions of twentieth-century printer's ink.
Joyce's brilliantly vivid portrait of Dublin, introduced by Colm Toibin
'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' is a coming-of-age novel by Irish author James Joyce, which follows the life and artistic development of young Stephen Dedalus. In it, Joyce explores life in Ireland at the time, as Stephen grows up and finds his way in the world. We follow as he attends college, battles with religion, engages in social and political intrigues, and suffers the embarrassments that come with adolescence, as the young poet struggles to find his direction in life. Semi-autobiographical, 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' is a fascinating insight into life in 20th century Ireland, as well as into the development of Joyce the writer too. -

He died in Paris in 1941 at the age of 58.
"e;I will tell you what I will do and what I will not do. I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it calls itself my home, my fatherland, or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning."e; James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) by James Joyce follows the intellectual, moral, and spiritual development of a young Catholic Irishman, Stephen Dedalus, and his struggle against the constraints of the society.
