Only 2 left in stock

Marking the centenary of Ireland’s – and possibly the world’s – most famous novel, this joyful introductory guide opens up Ulysses to a whole new readership, offering insight into the literary, historical, and cultural elements at play in James Joyce’s masterwork. 

Both eloquent and erudite, this book is an initiation into the wonders of Joyce’s writing and the world that inspired it, written by Daniel Mulhall, Ireland’s ambassador to the United States and an avocate for Irish literature around the world. 

One hundred years on from that novel’s first publication, Ulysses: A Reader’s Odyssey takes us on a journey through one of the twentieth century’s greatest works of fiction.
Exploring the eighteen chapters of the novel and using the famous structuring principle of Homer’s Odyssey as our guide, Daniel Mulhall releases Ulysses from its reputation of impenetrability, and shows us the pleasure it can offer us as readers.
