Examples

  • I invite anyone to check the Rosenbach facsimile, "Lestrygonians," leaf 21, line 27.

    The New 'Ulysses': Grave Matters

  • In contrast to "Lestrygonians," "Cyclops" and "Eumaeus" descend directly from the Rosenbach Manuscript, and thus pose fewer editorial problems that might provoke Gaskell's and Hart's criticism of Gabler's methods.

    The New 'Ulysses': The Hidden Controversy

  • To be sure, Gaskell and Hart had been critical of Gabler's early version of "Lestrygonians," the eighth episode of Ulysses.

    The New 'Ulysses': The Hidden Controversy

  • For example, in From Writer to Reader (1984), Gaskell cites the "Lestrygonians" episode as especially taxing for an editor, precisely because of its obscure line of transmission from working draft to typescript.

    The New 'Ulysses': The Hidden Controversy

  • Gabler argued in his preface that "Lestrygonians" did not derive directly from the Rosenbach Manuscript, but that both the Rosenbach and the typescript derived collaterally from a lost working draft.

    The New 'Ulysses': The Hidden Controversy

  • The earlier version of "Lestrygonians" that Gaskell refers to was published by Gabler in 1979 as a short book, Ulysses 11.5: Prototype of a Critical Edition in Progress, intended not for sale but for the use of scholars at the International James Joyce Conference held between June 11 and June 16, 1979, in Zurich.

    The New 'Ulysses': The Hidden Controversy

  • In view of Gabler's demonstration in 1979 of how he planned to handle such episodes, it is puzzling that no objections to his methods appear in the Ellmann correspondence before Gaskell's passing reference to "Lestrygonians" in May 1981.

    The New 'Ulysses': The Hidden Controversy

  • While I realize one could argue about idiomatic usage, I agree with Pip that the typescript has much more authority than Rosenbach in this chapter [ "Lestrygonians"].

    The New 'Ulysses': The Hidden Controversy

  • The Lestrygonians and the Cyclops, the fierce Poseidon you will never encounter, if you do not carry them within your soul, if your soul does not set them up before you.

    A prayer for the journey
