The Ulysses Volume of the James Joyce Digital Archive is an electronic, multi-interlinked archive of the notebooks and drafts – holographs, typescripts and proofs – that together comprise the complete manuscript of James Joyce’s masterpiece. The original documents are conserved in various libraries and private collections (including the National Library of Ireland, the Universities of Buffalo, Harvard, Cornell, Texas at Austin, and the Rosenbach Museum). Within it the Ulysses Draft Analysis presents an annotated listing of the numerous components of the Ulysses manuscript. Textual scholars will find that this coded analysis provides a stable base for reference; for example, the annotations in Danis Rose, The Dublin Ulysses Papers by James Joyce, vols. 1-6 (Lansing: House of Breathings, 2012) are keyed to it.
It is hoped that, in due course and given the cooperation of the holding libraries concerned, in addition to critically edited transcriptions the codes will be hyperlinked to high definition images of the documents cited.
