100 years ago since the publication of ‘Ulysses’ by James Joyce, a work that became one of the most revolutionary in modern literature. It narrates the walk through the city of Dublin of its protagonist Leopold Bloom during any given day. His walk is divided into 18 chapters and narrated in almost 1,000 pages and each one of them has a different structure and continuous time jumps that make it a complex novel that came to need a subsequent guide to guide the reader.
In ‘Ulysses’ his nods to the classic epic poem by Homer also stand out, from its own title to the names of some chapters or the parallels between its characters and the heroes of the ‘Odyssey’. On the centenary of this important book we want to remember the figure of James Joyce with new editions of the work, biographies of the author himself or remembering his most outstanding works.
This special edition recovers the classic version by José María Valverde, considered the best in Spanish since it preserves the original lexicon and which won the National Translation Prize in 1976. On the occasion of the centenary of the work, Lumen has presented this new extended edition, revised and updated by Andreu Jaume based on all the information that has appeared on the book in recent decades. Along with it, the illustrated map of Ulysses’ Dublin, designed by Camille Vannier, is included to accompany the reading.

Bringing the classics of literature closer from an early age is one of the objectives pursued by the ‘My first library’ collection from the Combel publishing house. Designed to read at bath time, it brings two great works closer to the little ones: ‘Moby Dick’, by Herman Melville and ‘Ulysses’, by Joyce. The latter features two bears who emulate the main characters of the novel and briefly recounts the day Leopold Bloom went out to tour Dublin. It is a bath book that has only 8 pages but that serves as a first approach to universal literature.

My brother James Joyce
Professor Stanislaus lived as the brother of James Joyce. He handled this title with caution although much of his life was shaped by the instructions of his older brother and he always dedicated himself to vindicating the right of others to criticize James. He himself recognized his genius, but also claimed that his character was very difficult and his masterpiece wasteful. In this book, he recounts Joyce’s career and their family life in which, on many occasions, Stanislaus had to get the firstborn out of innumerable troubles.

James Joyce. His life and his work
A journey through the life and work of Joyce to analyze (from a psychoanalytic point of view) how the Irish author was and how he has influenced world literature. In it, all those figures who made the ‘Joycean’ universe possible are presented: from his patrons, editors or writers fascinated by his work, to the women who influenced him. In the same way, an analytical walk through some of his titles, such as ‘Dubliners’ or ‘Portrait of an adolescent artist’, is carried out.

To give shape to the most exhaustive biography of Joyce, Richard Ellmann made a trip from Dublin to London, whose itinerary also had many other stops in Paris, Triste, Copenhagen and Pola, in order to discover what were the sources of inspiration of the Author. He thus managed to describe the literary and artistic scene of Joyce’s time, his relationships with other writers such as Eliot, Proust or Hemingway and the great challenges he had to face to publish his books. These events were some of the keys that help to better understand the revolutionary texts of the Irish.

Portrait of the teenage artist
Considered an autobiographical novel, since many situations based on Joyce’s real life appear in it, it narrates the confusing passage from childhood to the crisis of adolescence. His protagonist, Stephan Dedalus, begins by recounting through an interior monologue those little sensations that he enjoys in his life. Throughout the five chapters that make it up, his life and his thoughts are unraveled, which seek to rebel against the conventions of the society of his time, especially in relation to the Catholic and Irish.

James Joyce in Trieste
The sixteen years that Joyce spent in the Italian city of Trieste were among the most productive of his life: he wrote most of the stories in ‘Dubliners’, began work on ‘Ulysses’ and gradually outlined Stephen, the hero of ‘ Portrait of the adolescent artist’. There he also began his life together with his beloved Nora and had his two children, while working as an English teacher. It was a time that marked him as a writer, although he also had to go through great economic hardship. This book documents what this period of the Irish writer’s life was like and how the cultural and political life of this city influenced him.

The bookstore of Paris
This novel recreates the life of Sylvia Beach, founder of the legendary ‘Shakespeare and Company’ bookstore in Paris. When a young book-loving American decides to open an English-language bookstore in 1919 Paris, she has no idea that she will change the course of literature. This will soon become a reference space for writers such as Jules Romain, Ezra Pound or Ernest Hemingway and it will forge some of the most important literary friendships of the 20th century, such as that between James Joyce and Sylvia herself. When Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’ is banned in America, Beach decides to publish it and become a publisher herself. The plot of the book shows how the success and fame that comes with publishing the most controversial and influential novel of the century has very high costs: the rivalry of other publishers who want Joyce for themselves, while their most cherished relationships are put put to the test as Paris falls into the Great Depression.
