One hundred years ago, in 1922, Sylvia Beach published James Joyce's banned masterpiece, "Ulysses." Over the next decade, she kept the book in print through eleven printings, while battling customs officials, pirates, and even Joyce himself.
This lecture tells the story of Beach's work as a publisher, and how she balanced her relationship with Joyce with her duties at Shakespeare and Company, her bookshop and lending library.
The lecture also surveys Beach's vast archive of letters and business records at Princeton University.
Presenter: Pr. Joshua Kotin, is the associate professor in the Department of English at Princeton University, and the director of the Shakespeare and Company Project.
