Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Of the many efforts made to interpret Joyce's magnum opus, the best by far is that by Stuart Gilbert."

— Chicago Sunday Tribune

"Most serious Joyce readers owe to Stuart Gilbert their first introduction to the richness and complexity of Ulysses. His monumental pioneer analysis remains an essential Baedeker."

— Saturday Review

    An Esoteric But Engaging Piece of Scholarship

    Gilbert's classic study of Joyce's masterpiece is just that, classic. Aside from untranslated French, the work is fairly accessible. Page 30 justifies the cost of the book alone.
