Pressestimmen

very agreeable and pleasing to handle -- Books Ireland [the illustrations] are homely and quite evocative representations that do not overshadow the text ... they are actually company for the reader and leave room for the imagination to breathe freely -- Books Ireland given that Ulysses has been so commented on and the text even messed about with in some editions, many will be glad of the opportunity to read the book as Joyce intended -- Books Ireland

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

James Joyce [1882-1941] is best known for his experimental use of language and his exploration of new literary methods. His subtle yet frank portrayal of human nature, coupled with his mastery of language, made him one of the most influential novelists of the 20th century.Joyce s use of stream-of-consciousness reveals the flow of impressions, half thoughts, associations, hesitations, impulses, as well as the rational thoughts of his characters. The main strength of his masterpiece novel, Ulysses" (1922) lies in the depth of character portrayed using this technique. Joyce s other major works include Dubliners", a collection of short stories that portray his native city, a semi-autobiographical novel called A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man" (1916), and Finnegan s Wake" (1939).

Um 50 Cent Weltliteratur auf meinem Home-PC, Notebook und Tablet, da muss man ja zugreifen!
Ich habe nach dem Download sofort begonnen zu lesen, bis irgendwo in die Gegend von Seite 11 ...
Seither schlummert das Buch in meinem Kindle-Ordner. Es gibt heutzutage soviele Ablenkungen: Internet, Online-Zeitungen, YouTube, TV/ Media-Theken, andere noch nicht fertig gelesene Kindlebücher in meinem Kindleordner .., ich komme nicht mehr nach!
Also über den Inhalt von Ulysses kann ich -noch nichts- rezensieren. Das Kindle-Prinzip funktioniert jedoch perfekt: blitzschnell, preiswert, in Riesenauswahl Bücher auf meine "Lesegeräte" zu bekommen. Dafür 5 Sterne!

HASH(0x93ef0384) von 5 Sternen A more complete kindle edition 8. März 2012
Von Dean T. Sinclair - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is the more complete edition to which I refer in my review of the free Kindle version of Ulysses. Originally this came to me as claiming to be Unabridged (Annotated) but now it says unabridged (illustrated). Go figure. I didn't see any annotations when I started reading it, and I have also seen no illustrations. Still, this has the internal poetry, doggerel, etc. that the the free edition has excised.

Update: This is now listed as Ulysses (Annotated Edition) for $1.99.

HASH(0x93e4af90) von 5 Sternen About the OBRIEN Dublin Illustrated Edition A great (not the best quality) edition for the Ulysses initiation 24. Mai 2015
Von Juan Camilo Rodriguez Martinez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Ulysses is great... James Joyce is Great... The quality of the paper used and the cardboard for the covers well it gives you a lot to think... Well not that much cause is a Paperback... If you want this book for a travel... if you a are a punk against the struggles of nature and streets... If you enjoy reading in parks and alleways... If you dont have the time of taking too much care for books this edition is for you! If you want a collectible Ulysses for your studio avoid this... The particular issue is that this book was printed in IRELAND and has illustrations... Very lovely illutrations... The type of the letter is great big enjoyable read... Even if in some pages like the ink kind of sparse on the pages (very few pages) the book is all readable... Its a great book and a great edition... Im not a Joyceanian so i dont really know if this is the best review... But yes its a bad quality paper edition for sure... If you see a book printed in Spain you know what i mean... Not the best quality paper but a good edition ... The corners will get bend soon.... I dont know if the ink is the cause of the stains... I would call this the Ulysses combat edition to initiate yourself in this wonderful book... A good edition if you are thinking to go to a camping or to the beachs...

There is something romating about this issue anyway... it was printed in IRELAND ...

HASH(0x93e4ae70) von 5 Sternen ENLIGHTENING - Modern-day Odysseus, precursor to FINNEGANS WAKE 1. Oktober 2015
Von James C Brandon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Joyce was 40 yrs old when Ulysses was published, it is a day in the life of a husband and father of Joyce's age (at publication). Joyce loved Dublin and Ireland and though the book was written on the European continent - he wanted to memorialize his birth home (Ireland). The framework of Ulysses is Homer's Odyssey - The Roman (Ulysses: 1 Telemachus, 2 Nestor, 3 Proteus, 4 Calypso, 5 Lotus Eaters, 6 Hades, 7 Aeolus, 8 Lestrygonians, 9 Scylla And Charybdis, 10 Wandering Rocks, 11 Sirens, 12 Cyclops, 13 Nausicca, 14 Oxen Of The Sun, 15 Circe, 16 Eumaeus, 17 Ithaca, and 18 Penelope.

Ulysses is the tale of a Modern-day Odysseus, Leopold Bloom in his personal existential/sexual quest. The conclusion of this quest is the quintessential affirmation of humanity, the fundamental family unit - the father, mother, son, and daughter. Like Odysseus, absent from Penelope, traveling the world, for many long years, Leopold Bloom is also absent from his Penelope (in Dublin). Like a traveler (Odysseus), Bloom is sexually absent (abstinent) from Molly “10 years, 5 months and 18 days” (736). Unlike Odysseus, the obstacles Bloom faces are psychological (modern) - internal travails instead of Odysseus' external travails. Bloom's only son’s death has become a psychological barrier; as Molly reflects: “we were never the same since” (778). Yet Bloom is optimistic throughout the work - in regard to the possibility of another child, again Molly: ”Ill give him one more chance” (780). Affirmatively (as we grow to know Molly) we find she has given and is willing to continue to give Bloom “one more chance”. Through the course of the (Dublin) day, Bloom experiences “deep frustration, humiliation, fear, punishment and catharsis” (Herring, p.74). Bloom needs to lead himself back, out of self-deception, fantasy, and frustration to Molly’s (and his marriage) bed.

Bloom’s travails come in the Circe chapter and it is imperative (for Joyce) that as readers, we recognize Joyce’s change from Homer's Odyssey - this is Joyce's major rework, deviating from his Greek predecessor. For Odysseus: insight, understanding, enlightenment, and all importantly direction come to Odysseus in his journey to the (ancient Greek) Underworld. For Bloom, the Hades chapter or “the other world” represents an “emptiness of mind”; Joyce was a man grounded (and devoted) to the present world of man's consciousness and unconsciousness. In Ulysses enlightenment comes in the Circe chapter: described though the Joycean technique of hallucination or the discoveries of the "unconscious mind”. Joyce's Circe chapter (a surrealistic one-act Ibsen-like play) is where Bloom finds self-possession - (Joyce makes) Bloom encounter his own psycho-sexual existential questions, rather than finding life's answers in the dead ghosts of his life (the ancient Greek Hades chapter of the dead past).

In the Circe chapter, Bloom confronts and overcomes every major obstacle in his existential/sexual quest: the Molly he serves in Calypso reappears as Bello the whoremistress, Molly’s letter from Boylan and his from Martha are reworked into a series of seductive letters ending in a trial, his sexual infidelities beginning with Lotty Clarke and ending with Gerty McDowell are relived (importantly balanced by Molly’s infidelities) and reconciled, and lastly, Bloom triumphs over whore, Virgin-Goddess, and most importantly himself. Joyce equanimously gives both Molly and Bloom extramarital sexual infidelities - infidelities known by each of the other (as early as the Calypso chapter) Bloom was conscious of what was to come. Of course there will be resolution in marriage, for Molly only needs to feel that Bloom is willing. As we read, Bloom has undergone the travails of his own mind and has emerged Victorious. He has succeeded in his psycho-sexual existential quest. He has arrived at Molly’s bed. Self-possessed. Victorious. Eager.

Molly "I saw he understood or felt what a woman is and I knew I could always get round him...then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down in to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes. (END)".

After publishing Ulysses, Joyce began FINNEGANS WAKE (FW) - Joyce largely stepped out of one work into his next (and last work). The change Joyce made in FW was instead of using Homer's Ulysses as a framework - FW's framework is Giambattista Vico's "La Scienza Nuova's" 4 cyclic stages of history.

Joyce realized that he ended Ulysses wrongly (not in accordance with the Universe) in Molly's bed - Joyce corrects his mistake in FINNEGANS WAKE by incorporating Vico's revelation of restart / recirculation. FW starts in "book I ch 3" with HCE arrested in front of his tavern/home, like Bloom unable to enter his front door (but HCE does not enter his home through the back door) - instead HCE is arrested for disturbances in hours before dawn. Then "book I ch 4" HCE's conscious/awake or unconscious/dream psychological travails of past guilts (underworld coffin, Ulysses ch Hades) while incarcerated in early hours of morning. Followed by "book I ch 2" HCE walks home through Phoenix Park accosted for the time of day (12 noon) which threatens (real/unreal memories, Ulysses ch Nausicaa) his innocent well-being. These 3 chapters in FW are Joyce's major rework to incorporate Vico's revelation of restart / recirculation into FW - Joyce rewrites 3 chapters of Ulysses: When He is denied Her front door, He is in Hell (on earth), when released (from Hell) His odyssey to Her begins again (with His ever-present accompanying internal travails) for She always knows when He is worthy of Her acceptance (their Paradise).

Then "book I ch 1" Finnegan's afternoon wake at HCE's tavern. Inside HCE's tavern (his ship) his patrons talk about his family, truthful (letters, Norwegian Captain and the Tailor's Daughter) and fabricated stories (book I:5-8 and book II:3); while the children (Shaun, Shem and Iseult) are in and out of the family tavern/home all day taking their lessons (book II:2) and playing about with their friends (book II:1); HCE, as proprietor, defends himself with a self-deprecating apologia before his drunken collapse late night (book II:3). HCE dreams on his tavern floor (book II:4); then dreams in his bed (book III:1-3); before intercourse with his wife ALP (book III:4). HCE & ALP's lovemaking dissolution dream (book IV) to awaken to a new day, a supposition may be made that Joycean Nirvana is attained by HCE unification with the Unmanifest (creation, incarnate conception) and Reincarnation (the baton has been passed on again), awaiting Joyce's God "thunderclap" at the beginning of FW's "book I".

FW is aural (oral) history like Homer's Odessey and Celtic folktales - when one pronounces (phonology) FW's words (aloud) there are more languages than just English; also, when one reads (morphology) FW's words almost all the words are "portmanteaus / neologisms" which gives each of FW's "polysynthetic words" many meanings (impermanence, Heisenberg uncertainty), each FW sentence dozens of possible messages, each FW paragraph hundreds of possible readings, Joyce's rendering of a more expansive English language and multiplicating universal book with coalescing syncretic themes/stories (that responds to each reader's inquiries). Joyce schooled in Christian Jesuit metaphysics (pushed down into the mindfulness of human consciousness) breathes in the spirit of expansive Celtic (Irish) community tavern life where man's stories of life are told. Tavern life teaches the evolution of Joyce's ten God "thunderclaps" (one hundred lettered words) pushing man's evolution forward from cave man's tales to modern tv media tales. Inside the tavern man learns of the purely human (animal) fall, taken down by another human(s) - like animal taken down on the African savanna. A granular reading of FW can render FW as an updated John Milton's Paradise Lost (regurgitated knowledge from the tree, to affirm man's damnation); however, Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species was published in 1859 and Joyce in FW book II clearly walks Shaun, Shem and Iseult through their earthly evolutionary lifetime travails, our mortality is a consequence of Life's evolution. Every page of FW speaks to man's evolution (unconscious biological, conscious social, aspirational personal) and to Life recirculating (West meets Dzogchen East a "meeting of metaphysical minds") that binds humanity together into the future. Dzogchen (beyond all dualistic polarities) the heart of human consciousness - Joyce's underlying (subcutaneous) arguments refute the "Western curse of metaphysical/mythological damnation", the curse does not exist in the Eastern mind. Like "counting the number of angels on the head of a pin" (Aquinas 1270) Joyce provides a granular reading of FW as a "defense against all Western adversity" for our conscious and unconscious Western travails. HCE's angst is caused by his community that imposes a Western curse (damnation) upon him that man is not guilty of. To experience Joycean Nirvana, a defense against this man-made guilt is required - for as Zoroaster revealed cosmogonic dualism, evil is mixed with good in man's everyday (universal) travails (even the Dalai Lama must defend Nirvana rigorously from the most populous authoritarian state in human history).

Joyce's FW celebrates the Joys of Christian/Buddhist diversity of humanity (expansiveness of human consciousness: Gnostic Norwegian Captain, Shem, Archdruid), Brahma (Finnegan, HCE, Shaun), Divine Women (ALP, Iseult, Nuvoletta), his family - and the Sufferings of the inescapable "evil" of Shiva (Buckley), the debilitating harmful sterile intrusive authoritarian institutionalizing damnation (MaMaLuJo, St. Patrick) by Augustine, the manufactured clerical corruption identified by Luther (since 367 AD) and the burdens of "survival of the fittest" anxiety (modern commerce) met with a Dzogchen Buddhist stance. The (innocent infant) Norwegian Captain (Krishna, HCE), occasionally defensive (Shiva, HCE), though concretized (Brahma, HCE) by community family life (MaMaLuJo) - through spirits (drink) HCE can access his spirituality (dreams) and through spiritual (cutting through) love-making with ALP (direct approach) can access (their Krishnas) unification with the Unmanifest. Joyce was a Prophet who consumed Man's conscious and unconscious "thoughts and dreams, history and gossip", efforts and failings - to reveal the joys and sufferings of Mankind.

Joyce's FW message: Christian/Buddhist omniscient compassion (Christ/Krishna) is eternally joyful and recirculating. Affirmative family (HCE/Brahma, ALP/Divine woman & children) existentiality: life's biological evolution (sex), modern survival (money), constraining community (Dharma, social evolution) are constantly assaulted by inescapable "aggressive insidious vile" corrupt soul(less/sucking) ossified demonic antipathetic attacks. Joycean Nirvana is attained via the Christian/Buddhist affirmative middle way, "beyond polar opposites" the path of Christ/Buddha.

HASH(0x93e4be4c) von 5 Sternen Intriguing, confusing, humorous and deep 23. September 2013
Von R. Dempsey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is considered the greatest novel of it's time. It is very complex and Mr Joyce has made countless references to other great works, authors and styles of writing. I now know the novel Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace is based on this novel and writing style. I love and hate this book at the same time. It is not an easy read or listen (I listen as I read). The hardest part for me is I know, as with the Bible, I lack the background knowledge of the time period to fully appreciate this novel. Context, time period and word usage are all giving me fits. This novel has lead me to get and soon read the writers whose styles and works Mr Joyce eludes to throughout the book.

HASH(0x93e4d1ec) von 5 Sternen Greatest novel of 20th Century? 16. Mai 2013
Von Jak - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Is this extraordinary novel by James Joyce the greatest novel of the 20th Century (as many polls have indicated and many reviewers claimed)? Or is it, as some critics say, all style without substance, all sizzle without any steak? Make up your own mind by reading this well formatted and beautifully illustrated edition. I think it's worth the trouble (even though, I must confess, I sometimes find Joyce difficult reading) just to find and relish phrases like the one quoted by another reviewer (Lecancan): "The sea, the snotgreen sea, the scrotumtightening sea."

Beat that!
