A chapter-by-chapter guide to Joyce's notoriously difficult Modernist masterpiece, "Ulysses", this book guides students through the full range of theoretical approaches to this widely-studied novel. James Joyce's classic novel, "Ulysses", is one of the most famous, and intimidating, texts of all time. Not only is the novel itself notoriously complex but there is also a daunting amount of secondary criticism available to students approaching its study for the first time. This indispensable guide offers an introduction to the novel, its literary sources and allusions, and its criticism. As the novel is usually taught chapter by chapter, the guide follows the structure of Joyce's text. Each chapter covers a chapter or episode in the novel and includes: a brief summary of the chapter of "Ulysses"; Joyce's use of other books and texts; an account of the most influential commentary on the chapter and how to use it; topics for discussion; and, a guide to further reading. Reading Joyce's "Ulysses" will be the essential companion for any Joyce student.
