Part Two Of Two Parts

This revision of Ellmann's 1959 classic brings what Anthony Burgess called "the greatest literary biography of the century" up to date for a new generation to enjoy. The fresh material, in 100 new pages, deals with most aspects of Joyce's life: his writings and his attitude toward them, his loves and desires, his domestic problems, his political views.

As Ellmann notes, "the additions may help to assuage some of the curiosity that still persists about this bizarre and wonderful creature who turned literature and language on end."

"The genius of Ellmann's JOYCE is its abundance of detail--its wealth of anecdotes and letters, recovered conversations and poems. It's a pleasure to salute this masterly book as it marches past again." (Newsweek)
