Leopold Bloom is Joyce’s Ulysses and the 18 episodes in the novel loosely parallel the journey of Homer’s protagonist, as Bloom makes his way through the city, and home to his wife and son; each character wrestling with their flaws and failings, before ultimately confronting their relationships with each other.”For seven years I have been working at this book – blast it!” wrote James Joyce in a letter in 1920. What had started out as a short story entitled ‘Ulysses in Dublin’, intended as a rounding-off for Dubliners, had taken him over completely. Ulysses may take place in a single day in a single city, but it teems with zestful humanity. By the end of his journey, Joyce had created a masterpiece.’  Condition: slight creasing to top right corner of slipcase, otherwise, near fine.
