Review-A-Day

"Yet, for all its appalling longueurs, Ulysses is a work of high genius. Its importance seems to me to lie, not so much in its opening new doors to knowledge ? unless in setting an example to Anglo-Saxon writers of putting down everything without compunction ? or in inventing new literary forms ? Joyce's formula is really, as I have indicated, nearly seventy-five years old ? as in its once more setting the standard of the novel so high that it need not be ashamed to take its place beside poetry and drama. Ulysses has the effect at once of making everything else look brassy." Edmund Wilson Jr., The New Republic, 1922 (read the entire New Republic review)

Synopsis:

DE

Synopsis:

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)

The most famous day in literature is June 16, 1904, when a certain Mr. Leopold Bloom of Dublin eats a kidney for breakfast, attends a funeral, admires a girl on the beach, contemplates his wifes imminent adultery, and, late at night, befriends a drunken young poet in the citys red-light district.

An earthy story, a virtuoso technical display, and a literary revolution all rolled into one, James Joyces Ulysses is a touchstone of our modernity and one of the towering achievements of the human mind.
