Ulysses - a book review by Stuart Hopen

Monday, May 16, 2016

"James Joyce’s Ulysses is one of those sacred texts of academic English, and it is not uncommon to find professorial types whose eyes will glaze over in trancelike rapture at the mere mention of the book or its author.  Ask anyone who really knows the book what it is about, and the answer will invariably be:  it is about everything!  You might challenge that answer as unhelpful– they might as well be saying, it is about whatever.  But even when challenged, they will dig in their heels.  It is about everything."
