352:382: Joyce Bibliography

The highlighted listings below (with bullets, in red, bold) contain links to plain unformatted electronic texts that can be browsed online or downloaded for use in your word processor. Many have been uploaded locally for your convenience. Until they are verified, watch out for textual errors or variants that may make them unsuitable for close work.

Keep in mind that Chamber Music and Exiles were published by Joyce, but Stephen Hero and Giacomo Joyce appeared posthumously. Because of the long delay in the publication of Dubliners and the long gestations of Portrait and Ulysses, often there is significant overlap among Joyce's major works in Joyce's planning, writing, revision, serialization, further revision, publication, and correction of them -- complicated by posthumous textual issues concerning Ulysses arising from to the extraordinary conditions of its initial publication.

Two printed collections worth knowing about are the Viking Portable Joyce, a general selection with Joyce's poetry, his one play, Dubliners and Portrait complete, and excerpts from Ulysses and Finnegans Wake -- and James Joyce: The Critical Writings, ed. Ellsworth Mason and Richard Ellmann (1959), the short critical works, some selections from which appear as e-texts below.

    Ulysses (1922) -- early chapters serialized in Little Review, New York (1918-20) -- extensive revision of proofs (1921) -- published but immediately censored (1922) -- first US/UK editions (1933-34) -- "corrected" Gabler edition (1984-86) -- out of copyright in US (1992) -- continuing dispute: back in copyright or never copyrighted in US (Digital Millenium Copyright Act, c. 1998)
    Joyce's Ulysses has a complex publishing history, issued in France in 1922 but banned in Britain and the United States, issued in a faulty reprint (Random House, 1934), and in several "corrected" but disputed editions, esp. 1984-86, the work supposedly came out of copyright in the UK in 1992 [1941 + 50] but has been the occasion for recent legal disputes (e.g. the Cork anthology). It is legally available online only in Canada, a restriction impossible to enforce. Under pressure from the Disney Company, American copyright was extended in the 1990s from 50 to 70 years, which would put Ulysses back into copyright until 2012 -- if indeed the work was ever formally copyrighted at all because of its censorship. Anticipating the end of copyright for Ulysses, W. W. Norton advanxced a sum said to be $400,000 for a research project to produce a definitive annotated text/hypertext as part of a new collected Joyce, but the project was disbanded without any positive results. Despite the presumably weak legal position of the Joyce estate, publishers in the United States have been reluctant to start what might beoome a test case.
