Since 1966 new readers to James Joyce
have been able to rely on this essential guide for reading James Joyce's Ulysses.
Harry Blamires helps readers to discover their way through this romance and
gain an understanding that without help would take several readings to achieve.
The New Bloomsday Book is clear as crystal with comments on a page by page,
line by line basis on the Ulysses story, illuminating themes and symbolic structures
as they develop. It is a highly accessible guide, indispensable for anyone who
reads the material of Joyce's work for the first time. To ensure that this classic
Blamires will be useful to new readers, this third edition contains the page
numbering and references to three editions of Ulysses commonly found: Oxford
University Press' World Classics "(1993), the Penguin" of Century
classic XX '(1992), and corrected text Gabler 1986 edition.
