This collection of critical essays on James Joyce's modernist masterpiece presents an overview of the most recent critical positions and introduces a number of new voices to the lively area of Joyce scholarship. Together, the essays comprehensively address the entire text of Ulysses from the stances of structuralism and poststructuralism, Marxism, psychoanalysis, gender and postcolonial studies, and present many views that challenge established thinking on Joyce and modernist literature. Framed by an introduction that assesses particularity and universal schemes in Joyce's novel, this essential volume will provide stimulating critical support for students and teachers alike.
