Publisher Description

Ulysses is a novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach in February 1922, in Paris. It is considered to be one of the most important works of Modernist literature, and has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement". "Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking." However, even proponents of Ulysses such as Anthony Burgess have described the book as "inimitable, and also possibly mad".

Ulysses chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904 (the day of Joyce's first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle). Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between its characters and events and those of the poem (e.g., the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus to Telemachus).

    I am now a person who can say he has read Ulysses. Tada.

    Ulysses by James Joyce

    It’s interesting that what in one venue is dismissed as Stengelese and in another as glossolalia is here celebrated as an art form. An equally interesting distinction however, is that when speaking in tongues the Bible at least requires the presence of an interpreter (1 Corinthians 14:27-28). Without one, this too is gibberish.

    Best book of all time: On Bloomsday, we bring our bibles, and I have 2 first editions (French, US) from which I read.
