Show Summary Details


This chapter talks about The James Joyce Archive and Gabler's edition of Ulysses based on the author's work. The first Ph.D. dissertation to focus exclusively on Joyce, according to Tetsumaro Hayashi's census, appeared only three years after Joyce's death: Joseph Prescott's “James Joyce's Ulysses as Work in Progress,” completed at Harvard University in 1944 and based largely on the proofs for Ulysses that Harvard had acquired in the 1930s. Joyce manuscripts found their way into research libraries very soon after his death, and by 1960 four major collections were established. One is at the British Library, which possesses materials that Joyce gave to Harriet Shaw Weaver, who supported him financially with monthly payments for years.
