The final episode of James Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses, Penelope is a classic piece of Modernist literature. The episode takes place in Molly Bloom's head and uses stream-of-conspicuousness to show her thoughts while she is in bed at 2 in the morning with her husband Leopold. Some of the scenes in this final episode contributed to the book being banned when it was first published.
Ulysses, a novel that takes place on 16 June 1904 Dublin, chronicles the journey of Leopold Bloom on an Odyssey paralleling Homer's. Named the best novel of the 20th Century by Modern Library, Ulysses is considered an international classic.
The episode is comprised of only eight sentences without punctuation and 24,195 words. Suitable to read in one sitting with an impression that will last a lifetime. Expertly edited and introduced by Joycean scholars at Green Light, this edition brings James Joyce's words to life.
