Yes I Said Yes I Will Yes: A Celebration of James Joyce, Ulysses, and 100 Years of Bloomsday Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the fictional morning of June 16, 1904-Bloomsday, as it has come to be known--Mr. Leopold Bloom set out from his home at 7 Eccles Street and began his day's journey through Dublinlife in the pages of James Joyce's novel of the century, Ulysses. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of Bloomsday, Yes I Said Yes I Will Yesoffers a priceless gathering of what's been said about Ulysses since the extravagant praise and withering condemnation that first greeted it upon its initialpublication.

From the varied appraisals of such Joyce contemporaries as William Butler Yeats (It is an entirely new thing. . . . He has certainly surpassed in intensity any novelist of ourtime) and Virginia Woolf (Never did I read such tosh), to excerpts from Tennessee Williams' term paper Why Ulysses isBoring and assorted wit, praise, parody, caricature, photographs, anecdotes, bon mots, and reminiscence, this treasury of Bloomsiana is a lively and winning tribute to the most famous day inliterature.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
