Show Summary Details


This chapter presents an account of genetic criticism and its relevance to Ulysses. Ulysses alone does not account for readers' indifference to Joyce's revisions or to variations among the printed versions. Textual critics, who study such matters, have long bemoaned the tendency of other critics to ignore textual matters completely. Despite claims like Wellek and Warren's, interest in how Joyce wrote Ulysses is as old as the work itself. Early academic work on the Ulysses manuscripts focused on Joyce's writing of specific episodes or on particular stages in the book's development, such as the proofs.
