Ulysses was written by Irish author James Joyce and published in it's entirety in 1922. It is widely considered to be one of the most important works of modernist literature. The book's skilled use of stream-of-consciousness narration, rich character development, obvious humour, careful arrangements, and experimental style - complete with puns, parodies, and insinuations - have caused it to become on of the greatest literary works in history.
The story narrates the roving appointments and encounters of the main character, Leopold Bloom, in the course of an ordinary day on Jun 16, 1904 in London. Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, who was the hero of Homer's epic poem The Odyssey. The novel establishes a multitude of parallels between the epic poem and itself.
This beautiful reprint of the original story is unabridged, preserving Ulysses for your reading pleasure. It makes a wonderful gift for the modernism fan in your life or a wonderful addition to your library of classic literature. Enjoy!
"She trusts me, her hand gentle, the longlashed eyes. Now where the blue hell am I bringing her beyond the veil? Into the ineluctable modality of the ineluctable visuality. She, she, she. What she? The virgin at Hodges Figgis' window on Monday looking in for one of the alphabet books you were going to write. Keen glance you gave her."
