The Cambridge Centenary Ulysses: The 1922 Text with Essays and Notes

James Joyce, Catherine Flynn (University of California, Berkeley)

James Joyce’s Ulysses is considered one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. This new edition - published to celebrate the book’s first publication - helps readers to understand the pleasures of this monumental work and to grapple with its challenges. Copiously equipped with maps, photographs, and explanatory footnotes, it provides a vivid and illuminating context for the experiences of Leopold Bloom, Stephen Dedalus, and Molly Bloom, as well as Joyce’s many other Dublin characters, on June 16, 1904.


Featuring a facsimile of the historic 1922 Shakespeare and Company text, this version also includes Joyce’s own errata as well as references to amendments made in later editions. Each of the eighteen chapters of Ulysses is introduced by a leading Joyce scholar. These richly informative pieces discuss the novel’s plot and allusions, while also explaining crucial questions that have puzzled and tantalized readers over the last hundred years.

  • Provides the 1922 Shakespeare and Company edition with Joyce’s own errata notes and an essay on the errata and subsequent editions
  • Includes maps and contextual images that help readers visualize the events of the book
  • Includes a chronology of Joyce’s life and contemporaneous events
