Main Page Content

This site was created by Amanda Visconti, but this project wouldn't be possible without the support and generosity of many people (drawing by Rob Berry of the wonderful Ulysses Seen comic):


You're already contributing to the site just by being here, and even more so when you add, tag, and rate annotations on the text—thank you! This site depends on its community of readers and the annotations they create and share.


The Text

This site builds off the digital plaintext transcription of the 1922 first printing of Ulysses, transcribed by Matthew Kochis and Patrick Belk with the Modernist Versions Project (MVP) and offered for public reuse by the MVP under a CC BY SA license. I've added transcription-error corrections, regex formatting replacements, and HTML/CSS for important typographical choices used in the 1922 first printing of the novel (as verified against the Modernist Versions Project's digital images of the printing). You can read a full log of my corrections and changes on this page about the text of the novel, or grab the text for your own use (under CC BY SA requirements) in this repository.

Joyce scholars Hans Walter Gabler and Ronan Crowley have also been extremely helpful via conversations about improving textual reliability and future options for versioning on the site.

The Functionality
