    a| Annotation b| This book is both a study of how James Joyce created two of the most iconic characters in literature - Leopold Bloom and Marion Tweedy Bloom - as well as a history of the genesis of Ulysses. From a genetic critical perspective, it explores the conception and evolution of the Blooms asfictional characters in the work's wide range of surviving notes and manuscripts. At the same time, it also chronicles the production of Ulysses from 1917 to its first edition in 1922 and beyond. Based on decades of research, it is an original engagement with the textual archive of Ulysses,including the exciting, recently discovered manuscripts now in the National Library of Ireland. The book excavates the raw material and examines the creative processes Joyce deployed in the construction of the Blooms and so the writing of Ulysses. Framed by a contextual introduction and four bibliographical appendices, the seven main chapters are a critical investigation of the fictionalevents and memories that constitute the "lives" of the Blooms. Thereby, it is also a commentary on Joyce's conception of Ulysses more generally. Crispi analyses how the stories in the published book achieved their final form and discloses previously unexamined versions of them for everyone whoenjoys reading Ulysses. This book demonstrates the various ways in which specialist textual work on the genesis of Ulysses directly intersects with other critical and interpretive readings. Becoming the Blooms is a behind-the-scenes guide to the creation of one of the most important books ever written.
