Una de las cumbres de la literatura moderna en una cuidada edición de bolsillo.

Irreverente, cómica, erudita, monumental, Ulises es una de las novelas cumbre de la literatura moderna. Su trama sigue las andanzas por Dublín de Stephen Dedalus y Leopold y Molly Bloom a lo largo de un día, el 16 de junio de 1904. Pero tras los detalles cotidianos se oculta un trasfondo mitológico que remite a toda la experiencia humana y enriquece la lectura con infinitos significados. Escrito en una brillante variedad de estilos, el libro ha sido objeto de numerosos estudios, ensayos y controversias, una tradición crítica que la presente edición recoge en su estupenda introducción y en su minucioso aparato de notas.


In the past, Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous, and even unreadable. None of these adjectives, however, do the slightest justice to the novel. To this day it remains the modernist masterpiece, in which the author takes both Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. It is funny, sorrowful, and even (in a close-focus sort of way) suspenseful. And despite the exegetical industry that has sprung up in the last 75 years, Ulysses is also a compulsively readable book.
William Blake saw the universe in a grain of sand. Joyce saw it in Dublin, Ireland, on June 16, 1904, a day distinguished by its utter normality. Two characters, Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom, go about their separate business, crossing paths with a gallery of indelible Dubliners. We watch them teach, eat, stroll the streets, argue, and (in Bloom’s case) masturbate. And thanks to the book’s stream-of-consciousness technique — which suggests no mere stream but an impossibly deep, swift-running river — we’re privy to their thoughts, emotions, and memories. The result? Almost every variety of human experience is crammed into the accordian folds of a single day, which makes Ulysses not just an experimental work but the very last word in realism.

I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape. —T. S. Eliot

What is so staggering about “Ulysses” is the fact that behind a thousand veils nothing lies hidden; that it turns neither toward the mind nor toward the world, but, as cold as the moon looking on from cosmic space, allows the drama of growth, being, and decay to pursue its course. —Carl Jung

The greatest novel of the 20th century. —Anthony Burgess

“Ulysses” is extraordinarily interesting to those who have patience (and they need it). —John Middleton Murry

It is difficult not to acclaim a masterpiece. —Virginia Woolf
