Richard Ellmann has revised and expanded his definitive work on Joyce's life to include newly discovered primary material, including details of a failed love affair, a limerick about Samuel Beckett, a dream notebook, previously unknown letters, and much more.

"The genius of Ellmann's James Joyce is its abundance of detail--its wealth of anecdotes and letters, recovered conversations, and poems. It's a pleasure to salute this masterly book as it marches past again."--Newsweek "Indispensable, both as a text in classes on Joyce and as a model of literary scholarship."--Richard Stack, State University of New York, Purchase "The genius of Ellmann's James Joyce is its abundance of detail--its wealth of anecdotes and letters, recovered conversations, and poems. It's a pleasure to salute this masterly book as it marches past again."--Newsweek "An exceptional achievement....An indispensable book for Joyce scholars and Joyce-lovers....Fascinating."--The Nation "Ellmann produced a work whose brilliance and sheer readability set a new standard for literary biography. Updating the volume, he has taken advantage of two decades of research and discovery, incorporating new material gleaned largely from private as well as university and national collections, so that virtually every page...contains new information....In reading over these pages, one cannot help but feel renewed admiration for Ellmann and his magnificent achievement."--Booklist "Revised, expanded and wonderful."--The New York Times Praise for the first edition: "The best literary biography of our time."--Robert Martin Adams, Hudson Review "Perhaps the exemplary literary biography--I can't imagine teaching a Joyce seminar without it."--Joseph Witok, Stetson University "A work of genius."--Elio Zappulla, Dowling College
