Surface and Symbol: The Consistency of James Joyce's Ulysses, Adams, Robert Martin
1 Adams, Robert Martin Surface and Symbol: The Consistency of James Joyce's Ulysses
New York Oxford University Press / Galaxy 1967 Reprint Paperback Very Good 12mo 
290 pp. Light general and edgewear to illustrated covers. Faint yellowing and some scuffing to edges of text block. Internally unmarked. "A thoroughlly subversive book. Professor Adams has a wide-ranging energetic, destructive mind, and rarest of all in an American academic, an urbane and lucid prose style. Surface and Symbol is, in fact, a work of rigorously scholarly inquiry rather than of criticism, but it provides material that will be indispensable for future critics of Ulysses." -- Bernard Bergonzi, The Spectator

Here Comes Everybody: An Introduction to James Joyce for the Ordinary Reader, Burgess, Anthony
3 Burgess, Anthony Here Comes Everybody: An Introduction to James Joyce for the Ordinary Reader
London Arena Books 1987 0099525704 / 9780099525707 Reprint Paperback Very Good 12 mo 
276 pp. Light general and edgewear to illustrated covers. Foxing to upper edge of text block. Yellowing to edges of text block and outer page margins. Previous owner's name inked to first page. Internally unmarked; solidly bound. "My book does not pretend to scholarship, only to a desire to help the average reader who sees all his works available in paperback and is scared more of their content than of their price. The appearance of difficulty is part of Joyce's big joke; the profundities are usually expressed in good round Dublin terms; Joyce's heroes are humble men. If ever there was a writer for the people, Joyce was that writer. But there is need for the kind of pilot-commentary I attempt to provide. After nearly fifty years of reading Joyce, it seems only right that I should pass on what I have learned of his methods to those who come fresh to his riches."-- Anthony Burgess

The Little Review "Ulysses", Joyce, James. Edited by Mark Gaipa, Sean Latham, and Robert Scholes
9 Joyce, James. Edited by Mark Gaipa, Sean Latham, and Robert Scholes The Little Review "Ulysses"
New Haven Yale University Press 2015 0300181779 / 9780300181777 First Paperback Fine Octavo 
455 pp. As New. Colour plates. James Joyce's Ulysses first appeared in print in the pages of an American avant-garde magazine, The Little Review, between 1918 and 1920. The novel many consider to be the most important literary work of the 20th century was, at the time, deemed obscene and scandalous, resulting in the eventual seizure of The Little Review and the placing of a legal ban on Joyce's masterwork that would not be lifted in the United States until 1933. For the first time, this book brings together the serial installments of Ulysses to create a new edition of the novel. This unique and essential publicatiion also includes essays and illustrations designed to help readers understande the rich contexts in which Ulysses first appeared and trace the complex changes Joyce introduced after it was banned."

Ulysses and Us, Kiberd, Declan
10 Kiberd, Declan Ulysses and Us

399 pp. Light general and edgewear to illustrated covers (a little laminate is lifting). All else as new. "Ulysses continues to be one of the central books of the 20th century and this is an audacious new take on it, designed to remove it from the claustrophobic atmosphere of the Joyce Industry and restore it to its shocking, democratic origins. Kiberd has written a moving and controversial book, free of literary-critical jargon and specialist concerns. With it he confirms his position as one of Ireland's leading public intellectuals."

589 pp. Light general and edgewear to unclipped dustjacket. A few faint stains and marks to upper edge of text block. Internally unmarked; solidly bound. "Nora Barnacle, who ran off with James Joyce in 1904, was an uninhibited woman in a repressive time. Joyce was besotted with her and based all his main female characters upon her, notably Molly Bloom, the most powerful portrayal of Woman in 20th-century literature. Nora, like Molly, was lustful, mocking, earthy and loyal, and did not give a damn for the printed world."

The Semantics of Desire: Changing Models of Identity from Dickens to Joyce, Weinstein, Philip
13 Weinstein, Philip The Semantics of Desire: Changing Models of Identity from Dickens to Joyce
Princeton Princeton University Press 1984 0691065942 / 9780691065946 First Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Octavo 
310 pp. Light general and edgewear to unclipped dustjacket. Faint dust foxing to upper edge of text block. A spot of erasure/abrasion to upper corner of front free endpaper. Internally clean, bright, solidly bound. "An inquiry into the imagination of freedom, the work shows how protagonists achieve freedom to the extent that they come to terms with nature and culture -- the givens of body and mind. The Victorian novelists privilege culture: their protagonists subordinate nature in the fulfillment of their essentially ethical projects; Hardy and Conrad portray the tragedy of those who find no accommodation between desire and value; and the Modernists envision the protagonist's freedom in his capacity to affirm desire and to resist, ignore, or simply endure cultural commands."
