JOYCE, J.: Ulysses (Abridged)

Ulysses is one of the greatest literary works in the English language. In his remarkable tour de force, Joyce catalogues one day—June 16, 1904—in immense detail as Leopold Bloom wanders through Dublin, talking, observing, musing—and always remembering Molly, his passionate, wayward wife. Set in the shadow of Homer’s Odyssey, internal thoughts—Joyce’s famous stream of consciousness—give physical reality extra colour and perspective. Though Ulysses is widely regarded as a ‘difficult’ novel, this fresh and lively reading shows its comic genius as well as its great moments of poignancy, making it more accessible than ever before.
