What is the best edition of Ulysses? I picked up the shitty blue Dover edition, huge mistake. Is there one the that has footnote or explanation and a good intro?
I'm personally trying to decide between the Alma Classics publication (1939 text) and the Oxford World Classics publication (1922 text). I'm wondering exactly how jarring or confounding the various errors actually are.
I just checked the back my copy. There's this, I wouldn't call it a map though.
>tfw have a shit Wordsworth edition
>tfw had to annotate it myself
>tfw bought a translated edition of Ulysses in my mother tongue later on to see what it's like
>tfw the translated edition had circa a thousand footnotes and the map of Dublin + an essay on the novel written by the translator
>tfw reading it in English while checking the notes in the translated edition
Most of there publications are really shitty cheap prints with no intros or anything of value. The paper is often really cheap and the covers retarded looking. They are on the same level of wordworth as far as shittiness goes
