Ulysses by James Joyce


Sold out

The Bodley Head, 1949. Very good overall, a l ovely copy of Joyce's classic novel. 

'Loosely based on the Odyssey, this landmark of modern literature follows ordinary Dubliners in 1904. Capturing a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom, his friends Buck Mulligan and Stephen Dedalus, his wife Molly, and a scintillating cast of supporting characters, Joyce pushes Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. Captivating experimental techniques range from interior monologues to exuberant wordplay and earthy humour. A major achievement in 20th century literature.'
