Ulysses is the tale of a Modern-day Odysseus, Leopold Bloom in his personal existential/sexual quest. The conclusion of this quest is the quintessential affirmation of humanity, the fundamental family unit - the father, mother, son, and daughter. Like Odysseus, absent from Penelope, traveling the world, for many long years, Leopold Bloom is also absent from his Penelope (in Dublin). Like a traveler (Odysseus), Bloom is sexually absent (abstinent) from Molly “10 years, 5 months and 18 days” (736). Unlike Odysseus, the obstacles Bloom faces are psychological (modern) - internal travails instead of Odysseus' external travails. Bloom's only son’s death has become a psychological barrier; as Molly reflects: “we were never the same since” (778). Yet Bloom is optimistic throughout the work - in regard to the possibility of another child, again Molly: ”Ill give him one more chance” (780). Affirmatively (as we grow to know Molly) we find she has given and is willing to continue to give Bloom “one more chance”. Through the course of the (Dublin) day, Bloom experiences “deep frustration, humiliation, fear, punishment and catharsis” (Herring, p.74).Read more ›
If you want to be astonished, read it all! Take your time and think about it. This is very beautiful writing. You can't beat the price.
4 stars because of some pretty egregious typos.

I read just part of it and I thought it was boring and tasteless! I couldn't keep my mind on the line of thought of the story.Published on August 11, 2013 by Gilbert Williams
Finnegans Wake not included, and some others. But great to have this collection. Ulysses is here. Audible has some good recorded narrations of some of these.Published on April 27, 2013 by David McAllister
James Joyce was the greatest writer of the English language since Shakespeare and this collection is superb. There's a lot here for all those cold winter nights. Read morePublished on November 20, 2012 by J. Sughrue
