ULYSSES AND OTHER WORKS BY JAMES JOYCE features three key works of pioneering stream-of-consciousness writer James Joyce: ULYSSES, A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN, and DUBLINERS.
A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN is a depiction of the formative years in the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and a pointed allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Dædalus.
ULYSSES chronicles the passage through Dublin of Leopold Bloom during an unremarkable day, June 16, 1904. The title alludes to the hero of Homer's Odyssey, and there are many parallels, both implicit and explicit, between the two works. Written from 1914 to 1921, the novel was serialized in the American journal The Little Review from 1918, until the publication of the Nausicaa episode led to a prosecution for obscenity. The book was first published in its entirety in Paris in 1922, but was banned in both the United States and United Kingdom until the 1930s. The work was blacklisted by Irish customs.
DUBLINERS is a penetrating analysis of the stagnation and paralysis of Dublin society. The stories incorporate epiphanies, by which Joyce meant a sudden consciousness of the 'soul' of a thing.
