Her Power to Enamour

During an eight-week residency in rural Maine, artist/sculptor Tasha Lewis ’12 created visual responses to all 644 pages of the Gabler edition of James Joyce’s masterpiece for her project, Illustrating Ulysses.

Available at McCabe Library or for sale on, the book features 18 styles—from watercolors to embroideries, prints to Polaroids—so each page stands alone while also serving as a reference to the original text.

“I learned a huge amount about Ulysses during my intense rereading and creation,” Lewis says. “I hope I’ve passed on my insights in this visual version.”
