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. His research and teaching focus on American literature, modernism, and poetry and poetics. He received his BA from McGill University in 2002 and his PhD from the University of Chicago in 2011. From 2005 to 2008, he was editor of "Chicago Review."
