Abstract: This article explores the ways in which the text of James Joyce’s Ulysses developed in its transition from serialization in the US periodical, the Little Review (1918–1920), to the finished book edition published in Paris in 1922. It explores the scope of Joyce’s revisions to the text, and shows how Joyce revised some episodes of the text far more heavily than others. It argues that the serial text of Ulysses is worthy of sustained critical attention, and points to the way in which Joyce’s intentions for the final work were modified in response to the changing conditions under which Ulysses was being written, published, and read.
