ULYSSES. James Joyce.


London: The Folio Society, 1998. Hardcover. Second printing. Ulysses is constructed as a modern parallel to Homer's Odyssey. All of the action in the novel takes place in Dublin on a single day (June 16, 1904). The three central characters - Stephen Dedalus (the hero of Joyce's earlier The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man), Leopold Bloom, a Jewish advertising canvasser, and his wife Molly Bloom - are intended to be modern counterparts of Telemachus, Ulysses, and Penelope, and the events of the novel parallel the major events in Odysseus's journey home. Preface by Stephen James Joyce. Introduction by Jacques Aubert, with etchings by Mimmo Paladino. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt, white, and black stamping. A fine copy, housed in the publisher's slipcase. Fine. Item #68364
