The most extensively annotated edition available with almost 1,000 notes by Joyce scholars Marc A. Mamigonian and John Turner
Born in Dublin, James Joyce (1882-1941) spent most of his life abroad, living in Trieste, Paris and Zurich. His writings, however, mainly centre on Dublin - most famously Ulysses, Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. He pioneered and perfected avant-garde prose techniques that saw him rise to the rank of one of Europe's foremost Modernists.
His writing is not about something; it is that something itself. --
This volume likely presents the most ambitious annotations of tlle novel to date and might even surpass Don Gifford's colossal stand-alone reference guide. -- Greg Winston * James Joyce Quarterly *
