Regarded by many as the best English-language novel of the 20th century. It is known for its stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose. It attracts scrutiny and controversy.

Ulysses chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June 1904 (the day of Joyce's first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle).

Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's poem Odyssey and the novel establishes a series of parallels between its characters and events and those of the poem (e.g., the correspondence of Leopold Bloom to Odysseus, Molly Bloom to Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus to Telemachus).
