Oscar Wilde and James Joyce have not lost the power to shock, at least on the iPad.

Apple said Tuesday that it was mistaken in restricting images for apps for Robert Berry's comic book edition of Joyce's "Ulysses," which contains nudity, and for panels showing two naked man kissing in Tom Bouden's graphic novel of Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest."

Spokeswoman Trudy Miller said developers had been allowed "to resubmit their original drawings" and use the original artwork.

"Ulysses," a landmark of modern fiction, was the subject of a 1930s court case that ended with a federal judge ruling the novel was not obscene. Wilde's mockery of Victorian morals made him a scandalous figure in late 19th-century England.
