Ulysses by James Joyce Summary

Ulysseshas been the subject of controversy since copies of the first English edition were burned by the New York Post Office Authorities. Today critical interest centers on the authority of the text. This edition republishes, for the first time, without interference, the original 1922 text. Jeri Johnson's critical Introduction demystifies the complexities of the book, and a full textual publication history, helpful appendices, and explanatory notes guide the reader through this highly allusive text.

HMS Ulysses by Alistair Mac Lean Summary

Au lendemain de la seconde guerre mondiale, Alistair Mac Lean affirma son immense talent d'écrivain d'action et de suspense en publiant cette épopée navale, l'histoire d'un destroyer et de son équipage protégeant les convois de la Mer Baltique. Sans doute l'un des meilleurs romans de guerre navale 39-45, à l'égal de Mer Cruelle de Nicholas Monsarrat et d'Ouragan sur le Caine d'Herman Wouk.

Ulysses S. Grant by Vincent BERNARD Summary

La première biographie en français du plus grand général de la guerre de Sécession et du 18e président des Etats-Unis, Ulysses S. Grant. Si Ulysses S. Grant est demeuré profondément ancré dans la mémoire collective, c'est bien plus au titre de général en chef de l'Union victorieuse en 1865 qu'à celui de président américain de 1869 à 1877. Et pourtant, à l'inverse d'un Robert E. Lee, vaincu magnifique devenu l'icône du Sud, Ulysses S. Grant n'a joui, ni alors ni aujourd'hui, de l'aura inaltérée du héros national qu'aurait pu et sans doute dû mériter son rôle. L'homme né, à l'instar de Lincoln, dans une modeste masure de rondins, ballotté par la vie comme peu d'autres, à la personnalité à la fois ordinaire et extraordinaire, ne se livre que par ses actes et échappe à tout archétype creux. Il faut suivre " ses " vies, celles de l'enfant timide et effacé de l'Ohio, du fermier malhabile du Missouri, de l'employé obscur de l'Illinois. Mais aussi celles du cavalier émérite de West Point, du soldat courageux du Mexique, du reconstructeur de l'Union, étoile du Nord et Némésis du Sud. Et que dire du fiancé transi, du mari fidèle et père aimant, de l'ami indéfectible quand s'oppose à lui le Grant indolent, dépressif et alcoolique ? Naviguant entre les plus sombres doutes de l'échec et les plus glorieux sommets du succès, entre la notoriété héroïque et les tréfonds de l'opprobre, le destin d'exception du général Grant constitue une trace profonde et unique dans l'histoire des États-Unis, dont il incarne la destinée singulière.

Ulysses by Hugh Kenner Summary

With characteristic flair, Kenner explores the ways James Joyce teaches us to read his novel, moving from the simple to the complex, from the familiar to the strange and new, from the norms of the 19th-century novel to the open forms of modernism.

Détours et retours. Joyce et Ulysses by Jean-Louis Giovannangeli Summary

Le désordre apparent sur lequel Joyce a construit Ulysses est le résultat paradoxal d'un vigoureux principe d'organisation, lui-même guetté par sa propre dissolution. Les dérives de l'écriture joycienne, maîtrisées jusqu'à la limite de la perte de contrôle, délimitent les contours d'une poétique...

Joyce: 'Ulysses' by Vincent B. Sherry,Vincent Sherry Summary

In this engaging introduction, Vincent Sherry combines a close reading of Ulysses with new critical arguments. He provides a useful guide to the episodic sequence of Joyce's novel. In addition, he presents a searching interpretation of this masterwork, freshly addressing the major issues in Ulysses criticism. He shows how Joyce's modernist epic remodels Homer's Odyssey; and he examines and explains Joyce's extraordinary verbal experiments. This book is essential reading for all students of Joyce, whether they are approaching Ulysses for the first time or returning to the text.

Ulysses by Philip Gaskell,Clive Hart Summary

Feeling that none of the existing editions of Ulysses adequately represents the text of the novel, Philip Gaskell and Clive Hart have looked again at the evidence of Joyce's manuscripts, typescripts, and proofs, and have produced lists of suggested alterations for the three most important editions of the book: the first edition of 1922, the standard American edition of 1961, and the so-called "corrected" edition of 1984. They believe that a copy of any of these editions, marked up with the alterations they propose, will result in a text closer to what Joyce intended in 1922 than any that has yet been achieved. What is offered here, in fact, is not a new edition of Ulysses, but a kit for repairing the major faults of existing editions. Contents: Abbreviations and References; Introduction; Synopsis of JJA 12-27; Alterations to 1922; Alterations to 1961; Alterations to 1984^R

The Adventures of Ulysses by Charles Lamb Summary

The Adventures of Ulysses, Charles Lamb re-tells the story of Ulysses's journey from Troy to his own kingdom of Ithaca.

The book is considered a modern version of the epic tale when it was published in 1808. In the preface of the book, Lamb said that he made the narration of the story faster so that more readers would be attracted to it.To begin with, Homer's Odyssey is already a classic and in re-telling this story, Charles Lamb aimed to make this epic poem more comprehensible to the average person. And he was successful in doing what he aimed for. The book became very popular not just to adults but also among children because it was well-written and can be easily understood. Lamb was really talented in bringing deep, hard to understand works of literature close to the masses. Before The Adventures of Ulysses, Lamb also wrote Tales From Shakespeare in which some of Shakespeare's plays were retold as short stories, so like Ulysses, they can also be easily read.The Adventures of Ulysses is filled with interesting characters including sirens, giants, warriors and enchanters. Each chapter is filled with new adventures and challenges which Ulysses must face and overcome. Lamb was able to retell the story of Ulysses's adventures in a light and entertaining way without losing any of the important details of the original story.Readers who are into Greek mythology and are also looking to read a version of Homer's Odyssey will surely enjoy reading this book.
