Reading Joyce's "Ulysses"

Overview

In this major study of Ulysses, Daniel R. Schwarz not only presents a powerful and original reading of Joyce's great epic novel, but discusses it in terms of a dialogue between recent and more traditional literary theory. He takes full account of Gabler's Ulysses: A Critical and Synoptic Edition.

Overview

In this major study of Ulysses, Daniel R. Schwarz not only presents a powerful and original reading of Joyce's great epic novel, but discusses it in terms of a dialogue between recent and more traditional literary theory. He takes full account of Gabler's Ulysses: A Critical and Synoptic Edition. Focusing on what he calls the odyssean reader, Schwarz demonstrates how the experience of reading Ulysses involves responding to traditional plot and character as well as to the novel's stylistic experiments. Schwarz shows how the novel creates a reader who must make subtle and deliberate discriminations in his odyssean journey through the novel. After three splendid general chapters which address, respectively, how Joyce's art signifies, Joyce's concept of the hero, and the role of the reader, Schwarz provides an episode-by-episode analysis.
