Overview

In this engaging introduction, Vincent Sherry combines a close reading of Ulysses with new critical arguments. Besides providing a useful guide to the episodic sequence of Joyce's novel, he freshly addresses the major issues in Ulysses criticism. He shows how Joyce's modernist epic remodels Homer's Odyssey, and he examines and explains Joyce's extraordinary verbal experiments, reading anew the most challenging language of the text. He also reclaims the landmark status of Joyce's monumental novel, situating it in the relevant contexts of literary tradition and political history. This book is essential reading for all students of Joyce, whether they are approaching Ulysess for the first time or returning to the text.
