Michael Groden has been at the forefront of some of the most important developments in James Joyce studies over the past three decades. He was a major figure in and early adopter of genetic scholarship--the method of analysing a literary work by looking at its development from draft to draft, particularly suited to Joyce's stories and novels. He defended Hans Walter Gabler's Ulysses edition in the ""Joyce Wars"" and helped introduce the National Library of Ireland's new Joyce manuscripts to the world.

Bringing together twelve essays in three areas of Joyce criticism and scholarship, this refreshing book offers various personal adventures from a life lived with Joyce's work. In a manner that is at once modest, rigourous, and accessible, Ulysses in Focus engagingly connects these scholarly developments and contretemps to the author's personal history and provides fascinating new genetic readings of several episodes of Ulysses that advance our understanding of the novel's composition.

MEDIA REVIEWS

""This is an engaging, reflective, and highly personal set of essays and recollections by a leading Joyce scholar. It urges us to see Ulysses, not as a finished monument, but as a mobile piece of writing in constant dialogue with its own processes of composition and avant-textes.""--Anne Fogarty, co-editor of Bloomsday 100: Essays on Ulysses
