This book contains eighteen original essays by leading Joyce scholars on the eighteen separate chapters of Ulysses. It attempts to explore the richness of Joyce's extraordinary novel more fully than could be done by any single scholar. Joyce's habit of using, when writing each chapter in Ulysses, a particular style, tone, point of view, and narrative structure gives each contributor a special set of problems with which to engage, problems which coincide in every case with certain of his special interests. The essays in this volume complement and illuminate one another to provide the most comprehensive account yet published of Joyce's many-sided masterpiece.

This book includes essays by Clive Hart, David Hayman, Bernard Benstock, E. L. Epstein, J. Mitchell Morse, Adaline Glasheen, Phillip F. Herring, R. M. Adams, M. J. C. Hodgart, Melvin J. Friedman, A. Walton Litz, J. S. Atherton, Hugh Kenner, Gerald L. Bruns, Jackson I. Cope, Fritz Senn, R. Kellogg and Fr. Robert Boyle, S. J.
