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.
With a new Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex. James Joyce's astonishing masterpiece, Ulysses, tells of the diverse events which befall Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus in Dublin on 16 June 1904, during which Bloom's voluptuous wife, Molly, commits adultery. Initially deemed obscene in England and the USA, this richly-allusive novel, revolutionary in its Modernistic experimentalism, was hailed as a work of genius by W.B. Yeats, T. S.Eliot and Ernest Hemingway.
