Since 1966 readers new to James Joyce have depended upon this essential guide to Ulysses. Harry Blamires helps readers to negotiate their way through this formidable, remarkable novel and gain an understanding of it which, without help, it might have taken several readings to achieve. The New Bloomsday Book is a crystal clear, page-by-page, line-by-line running commentary on the plot of Ulysses which illuminates symbolic themes and structures along the way. It is a highly accessible, indispensible guide for anyone reading Joyce's masterpiece for the first time. To ensure that Blamires' classic work will remain useful to new readers, this third edition contains the page numbering and references to three commonly read editions of Ulysses: the Oxford University Press 'World Classics' (1993), the Penguin 'Twentieth-Century Classics' (1992), and the Gabler 'Corrected Text' (1986) editions.

Irish Divorce / Joyce's Ulysses

This engrossing, ground-breaking book challenges the long-held conviction that prior to the second divorce referendum of 1995 Irish people could not obtain a divorce that gave them the right to remarry. Joyce knew otherwise, as Peter Kuch reveals—obtaining a decree absolute in Edwardian Ireland, rather than separation from bed and board, was possible. Bloom’s “Divorce, not now” and Molly’s “suppose I divorced him”—whether whim, wish, fantasy, or conviction—reflects an Irish practice of petitioning the English court, a ruse that, even though it was known to lawyers, judges, and politicians at the time, has long been forgotten. By drawing attention to divorce as one response to adultery, Joyce created a domestic and legal space in which to interrogate the sometimes rival and sometimes collusive Imperial and Ecclesiastical hegemonies that sought to control the Irish mind. This compelling, original book provides a refreshingly new frame for enjoying Ulysses even as it prompts the general reader to think about relationships and about the politics of concealment that operate in forging national identity

Where Land Meets Sea

Coastal Explorations of Landscape, Representation and Spatial Experience

Drawing together philosophical, empirical and academic thinking, this book focuses on generating awareness of the relationship forged between self and surroundings. It details research undertaken at two coastal sites, the South Wall in Dublin city and the Maharees peninsula in Co. Kerry, Ireland. Sixty-two participants were engaged in photography and drawing to enable this exploration of spatial experience. The participants' photographs and drawings present how spatial sensibilities can be revealed by becoming more attentive to the immediacy of bodily knowledge: our more-than-cognitive experience. Their communications resonate with the philosophers and theorists considered, including Merleau-Ponty, Edward Casey, Gilles Deleuze, Dalibor Vesely, and contemporary cultural geographers. From exploring the experienced spatiality of the meeting of land and sea, this book begins to suggest an alternative politics of the coast.

Parallaxing Joyce is a groundbreaking collection of critical essays, as it approaches James Joyce's work using parallactic principles as its overriding theoretical framework. While parallax, a frequent term in Joyce's work, originally derives from astronomy, it has been appropriated in this volume to provide fresh perspectives on Joyce's oeuvre. By comparing Joyce and Marilyn Monroe, films, art, serializations, philosophy, translation and censorship, among others, these scholars transform our way of reading not only Joyce but also the world around us. This volume will appeal not only to academic researchers and Joyce enthusiasts, but also to anyone interested in literary and cultural studies.

Fictions of Hybridity

Translating Style in James Joyce's Ulysses

Fictions of Hybridity is the first full-length study of the famous and infamous Danish translator Mogens Boisen's translations of James Joyce's Ulysses. It is author Ida Klitgård's basic presumption that since Joyce's international outlook was that of a multilingual exile, and since the style of his major works clearly demonstrates a fundamentally foreignizing principle of linguistic, aesthetic, and cultural hybridity, his works are shaped according to, what Klitgård calls, a poetics of translation as exile. This is very much the case in Ulysses. Consequently, translators of the novel are to take this stylistic trait into account when reproducing it in their own language. In this study, Klitgård explores such hybridity in Boisen's translations. Based on a critical discussion of recent theories of translation, such as the concepts of 'domestication' and 'foreignization,' she undertakes an extensive comparative analysis and evaluation of a number of episodes in Ulysses while paying close attention to the complex networks of the novel's most important stylistic features of hybridity.

Sexual Confessions

Sheds new light on James Joyce's use of sexual motifs as cultural raw material for Ulysses and other works Joyce/Foucault: Sexual Confessions examines instances of sexual confession in works of James Joyce, with a special emphasis on Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses. Using Michel Foucault's historical analysis of Western sexuality as its theoretical underpinning, the book foregrounds the role of the Jesuit order in the spread of a confessional force, and finds this influence inscribed into Joyce's major texts. Wolfgang Streit goes on to argue that the tension between the texts' erotic passages and Joyce's criticism of even his own sexual writing energizes Joyce's narratives-and enables Joyce to develop the radical skepticism of power revealed in his work. Wolfgang Streit is Lecturer, Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich.

»Geschichten vom Hörensagen« vereint die wichtigsten Erzählungen Joseph Conrads. Selten erzählt Joseph Conrads direkt: Erzähltes wird weitererzählt, Perspektiven verschoben und vertieft. So entstehen die für Conrads Werk charakteristischen »Geschichten vom Hörensagen«, ein Titel, den er selbst für diese Sammlung vorgesehen hatte, deren Zusammenstellung aber erst nach seinem Tod erfolgte. Darin zeigt sich die ganze Bandbreite des großen Schriftstellers: Auf Geschichten tragischer Intensität folgen kuriose Anekdoten mit Happy End, auf Kindheitserinnerungen folgen nebelhafte Episoden aus dem damals noch andauernden Ersten Weltkrieg. Der Band enthält drei bedeutende Erzählungen, die bereits zu Lebzeiten publiziert wurden, und vier posthum veröffentlichte Geschichten, darunter die Neufassung der ersten Erzählung Conrads.
