Ulysses

By James Joyce | Dover Publication

Originally reviled as obscure and obscene, Joyce’s 100-year-old masterpiece stands as one of the great literary achievements of the 20th century. Loosely based on Homer’s Odyssey, the novel traces the paths of Leopold Bloom and other Dubliners through an ordinary summer day and night in 1904—a typical day transformed by Joyce’s narrative powers into an epic celebration of life.
