I have an honest question, /lit/? Should I read Ulysses by myself without any external resources, or should I read an annotated version of Ulysses and delve into summaries and reading guides. Which of the two options would allow me to experience Ulysses the best?

The first option. Then, when you feel like re-reading it, do the second option.

Buy an unabridged, look up annotations on the web. Much more versatile.
>>
you should make inconsequential minor decisions by yourself you retard

I went into Ulysses blind a few years ago, got completely lost, and eventually gave up half-way through. There were just too many references that went completely over my head.

Currently reading an annotated copy and am enjoying myself much more.
>>
Read it by yourself always.
If you feel you've missed too much, look up annotations or companion books at the end of a chapter.
>>
The only annotated copies i know of is that penguin student edition thats uk only (though of course you can order it through amazon.co.uk or the book depository) and the oxford world's classics edition, which i think uses the error-filled first edition.

What other annotated editions are there? I wish norton would put out a critical edition, its odd that they havent.

The penguin annotated students edition btw is great because its end notes are brief and necessary, so you arent reading essays about the book while youre reading it.

Just read it by yrself the first time. It's in English. It's incredibly contemporary. There are trolling cucks ffs fam.

Might as well get the original taste. It didn't originally get published w a manual.
