Summary:

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.
