Ulysses by James Joyce
The text of "Ulysses" has been in dispute since its first publication in 1922, and debates about the authenticity of different editions have become legion. This edition makes use of all the criticisms of earlier texts.
Ulysses, James Joyce's masterpiece, tells of the diverse events which befall Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus in Dublin on 16 June 1904, during which Bloom's wife, Molly, commits adultery.
Banned in England and the USA upon initial publication for obscenity, 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.
Scandalously frank, wittily erudite, mercurially eloquent, resourcefully comic and generously humane, Ulysses offers the reader a life-changing experience.
