About this product
- Description'Ulysses' is one of the most exceptional and outstanding compositions ever written in the English language. About that, there is doubt. Its author, James Joyce, declared that the book would keep the professors busy for generations arguing over what he meant. How right he was! Since its publication in 1922, professors, academics and scholars worldwide have been discussing, analysing and dissecting the very essence of every syllable of every word in the book. The intricate artistic structure, the elaborate literary engineering, the verbal creativity, the unique and inspired use of 'internal mologue' and the diversity of styles all contribute to the complexity of Ulysses. The sparse and vague punctuation and the lack of differentiation between the regular narrative and the 'internal mologue' in its original printed form amplify the difficulty of Ulysses. The result is that many people consider the book to be too much of a challenge. This remastered edition of 'Ulysses' introduces modern user-friendly formatting by applying additional punctuation where necessary and separating the 'internal mologue' from the narrative. However, t a single word or syllable of the text has been changed, thus preserving the integrity and authenticity of Joyce's creation while at the same time offering a better reading experience.
- Author BiographyRobert Gogan was born in Dublin in the 1950's. He spent his formative years cycling through, walking around and getting to know his native city - in those days reflecting the appearance more of a large Irish country town rather than cosmopolitan city. By the age of seventeen he had developed a keen interest in English literature and discovered James Joyce. He read 'Dubliners', 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' and 'Ulysses'. He was greatly influenced by 'Ulysses' and has read it every 3-4 years, giving himself his periodic Ulysses fix . In the course of these many readings he has accumulated an extensive knowledge of the book and has developed an appreciation for its character and spirit. On every reading it has offered new challenges, and new rewards and it continues to influence and renew his sense of awareness of his native Dublin. He has also written a play, 'The Bloomsday Story', highlighting the main events of 'Ulysses' in both words and music.
