This third edition, newly revised and updated, includes comprehensive and all-new annotations (over 9,000 notes) by Joyce scholar Sam Slote, Trinity College, Dublin, and Marc A. Mamigonian and John Turner. A lively repository of literary allusion and colloquial realism, this dazzlingly innovative, ambitious novel is here presented in its 1939 version, which contains notable textual differences from the standard editions currently in print. Controversial, scandalous, erudite and funny, Ulysses is undisputedly a landmark of twentieth-century Modernism. It charts one day - 16th June 1904 - in the lives of three inhabitants of Dublin, the advertising salesman Leopold Bloom, the artist Stephen Dedalus and Bloom's wife Molly. Their peregrinations, thoughts and encounters form the basis of the narrative, which becomes a celebration of all human experience through the lives of specific individuals in a specific place at a specific time. Ulysses is both an experimental novel and a book intimately concerned with the events of modern life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a text of choice for first-time and established readers alike * Variants: The Journal of the European Society for Textual Scholarship *
[The] annotations are by far the most systematic, the most thorough, the most scholarly, of any single-volume Ulysses ... The notes on scientific and technical terms are particularly clear. * The Irish Times *
[This edition] provides perhaps the clearest insight into the finely grained details of Ulysses of any yet on offer. * The Irish Times *
[The annotations] are exacting, full, textured and, yes, economical of expression. * James Joyce Quarterly *
[The] annotation is extensive, diligent and unfussy, and offers a serious rival to Jeri Johnson's notes in the Oxford edition. * The Tablet *
Anyone looking for an accurate, annotated Ulysses will find one here. * TLS *
I love this edition. The explanatory notes don't get in the way of the text but rather send me seamlessly back with renewed interest. The beautiful paper falls flat to the touch and when I first opened it I came across the note for p.125. I never knew that Staggering Bob was veal made from calves so young they were still staggering. I found myself reading the tremendous Lestrygonians Episode again - Joyce's terrible and wonderful song of how and what we consume. One can never get to the bottom of Ulysses. -- Martina Evans

“Ignore what other people say....”

...Ulysses is not as hard as they suggest. All you need is a good set of notes, lots of tea, and some stamina (and ideally a friend who's already read it). Even if it takes a few attempts, it is really worth... More

“Deserves credit and reading”

As with many of James Joyce works it seems to attract some negativity which is totally unfounded. It might take a little patience (particularly if you are not used to the style) but it is well worth reading, thought... More

“Ulysses”

Despite this being considered a must read classic, I did not enjoy it at all. I found the language confused and over the top, the writing disjointed and chaotic and didn't connect with any of the characters on... More
