Ulysses is regarded by many as the single most important novel of the 20th century. It tells the story of one day in Dublin, 16 June 1904, largely through the eyes of Stephen Dedalus (Joyce's alter ego from Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man) and Leopold Bloom, an advertising salesman. Both begin a normal day, and both set off on a journey around the streets of Dublin, which eventually brings them into contact with one another. While Bloom's passionate wife Molly conducts yet another illicit liasion (with her concert manager), Bloom finds himself getting into arguments with drunken nationalists and wild carousing with excitable medical students, before rescuing Stephen Dedalus from a brawl and returning with him to his own basement kitchen.

In the hands of Jim Norton and Marcella Riordan, experienced and stimulating Joycean readers, and carefully directed by Roger Marsh, Ulysses becomes accessible as never before. It is entertaining, immediate, funny, and rich in classical, philosophical, and musical allusion. Download and start listening now!

    " What eloquence.... Shakespeare would have been jealous! I doubt I understood half of his references, but just the perfection of his prose puts me in awe. "

    " As Joyce's wished, if human civilization was to dissapear, at least the essence of the modern human could be rebuilt from this piece of experimental perfection. "

    " It lived up to its reputation for being hard to read. It was extremely difficult to read and sometimes painful, but it was worth it. Joyce's novel is hundreds of levels above any other novel I've ever read. What he was able to do in this book was absolutely amazing. "
