The atmosphere was one of my things about the novel, something about the Cossack way of life and how they interact with nature just seems comfy and Maryinka has to be one of the hottest girls in all of fiction. I have Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky for War & Peace along with Anna Karenina but I'll take your advice and get Maude for the rest.
>>7562958 Unless you're a collector why would the edition matter? And if you're a collector, you wouldn't be collecting the everyman's library.
Just buy whatever's cheapest at your used book store OP. Even with Ulysses, where there may be errata and other inconsistencies between editions, it doesn't matter. The mistakes are insignificant, and really only of note to a Joyce scholar.
>>7562986 Thanks - i haven't read fiction in such a long time, pretty excited to get comfy with a novel.
>>7563005 Some people want a certain experience that they feel will only come with a particular edition...since their reading experience is entirely subjective, their initial biases will affect the actual experience they have when reading.
>>7563034 No I just think with books specifically, the physical experience with the book is so secondary to the actual reading, it's weird to expend a lot of mental energy on what edition to buy. It makes reading into something like collecting comic books.
>>7563035 Sure. It just seems like a dead end, discussion-wise. And in the case of a book like Ulysses, a convenient way to procrastinate the actual reading.
There are a few editions of Ulysses that merit discussion but its so pointless and anal, this anon is right to an extent >>7563052 Just read the fucking book In the case of Ulysses you aren't going to notice any spelling errors in your version and on a second reading with the help of annotations you'll discover little differences, but really it doesn't matter if the term used is "weeping god" or "jesus wept" or Connolly is spelt with one n or 2.
To actually answer Op's question though, the Everyman's library edition is more definitive but personally I think the Bodley Head edition is better, smaller, easier to hold and read therefore enjoy, much more manageable. I can bring it on a train or on holiday etc. as if it was a normal book rather that a 1000 page hardback.
>>7561953 >>7561990 >>7561992 >>7561951 i think the most important thing about Ulisses is not the paper, but which edition is it: original 1922 text or 1934 revised (best one imo) or Gabler's from 1984 (shit). That what matters guys
The only thing that seems important is the version you are getting, if it is a revised one or the original one. Companion books you can just download a number of them off of Libgen to aid with your understanding of it. I read the original one on a Wordsworth edition. It wasn't a great experience but the words were all there, and when I needed to check on something I just went to look at the notes or articles about each chapter.
