Ulysses Summary

Ulysses by James Joyce

'It is the book to which we are all indebted and from which none of us can escape.' T.S. Eliot A modernist classic, Ulysses is without doubt one of the great masterpieces of the twentieth century. The novel follows the interwoven paths of the young schoolteacher Stephen Dedalus, bitterly estranged from his father, and the middle-aged Dubliner, Leopold Bloom, still grieving for his dead infant son. Over the course of twenty-four hours, their unwitting quest for each other -- surrogate son for surrogate father -- is enacted against an extraordinary, celebratory portrait of the city of Dublin.

Ulysses Reviews

'His standing is second to none among writers of our own century. He was witty, difficult, subtle and perhaps the greatest genius among the many who have come from Ireland to bewilder the world with the magic of art.' Irish Independent
