One of the most important works of modernist literature, James Joyces "Ulysses" was originally published in serial format from 1918 to 1920 and then published in a single edition in 1922, which this edition is drawn from. "Ulysses" chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, June 16, 1904. While the novel appears largely unstructured at first glance it is in fact very closely paralleled to Homers "Odyssey", containing eighteen episodes that correspond to various parts of Homers work. Filled with experimental forms of prose, stream of consciousness, puns, parodies, and allusions that Joyce himself hoped would keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant. This expansive work is considered one of the great works of English literature and a must read for fans of the modernist genre.
