About the Author
Édouard Dujardin (1861-1949), French novelist and playwright, wrote extensively and edited the journal Revue Indépendente. When his parents passed away in 1882, they left him their fortune, which he used to finance productions of his plays. Over the years he also worked as a journalist, which frequently got him in trouble with the authorities. He passed away in 1949.
Stuart Gilbert, born in 1883, was an English literary scholar and translator, as well as one of the original Joyce scholars. He translated works by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Georges Simenon, Jean Cocteau, Albert Camus, and Jean-Paul Sartre, among others. Gilbert passed away in 1969.
When we read this type of novel we accomplish something we can never do in our daily lives. We actually succeed in penetrating into the consciousness of another and sometimes into the inner worlds of several persons.--Leon Edel
