A reference tool designed for two" "distinct audiences: those who, having read "Ulysses "once, want to explore the complicated web of allusions that form a major element in the text; those more experienced Joyce scholars who wish to locate quickly "all "allusions to a particular element."""The Index "is organized by page and line number from the 1961 Random House edition of "Ulysses. "When readers find the name Bob Doran in that edition, for example, they can check the "Index "for all further references to Doran. Almost 100 pages later in "Ulysses "(167.29) Doran appears again. Here, as in all subsequent references to Doran, the "Index "refers readers back to 74.01.Scholars tracing image patterns or checking the recurrence of certain elements for any reason will find this book immensely useful: through the alphabetical index at the end they will be able to locate easily any recurrent element in which they have a particular interest. No longer will they have to hunt through 800 pages to find each reference to whatever interests them.In working with the "Index, "scholars using British editions or the 1834 Random House "Ulysses "may want to consult a conversion table, such as those provided by Clive Hart or Leo Knuth in "Topographical Guide to James Joyce s Ulysses "and "The James Joyce Dictionary "by Shari and Bernard Benstock."
