Ulysses by James Joyce is often called the greatest novel in the English language. It also has a reputation as being one of the most difficult novels to read. Notorious for having been banned for obscenity when it was first published in 1922, Ulysses tells the story of one day in Dublin, and the meeting of two men, Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom. It is, all at once, a kind of an encyclopedia, the chronicle of an ordinary day, the epic of the human body, and perhaps the greatest foregrounding in literature of the process of thinking.
This tour explains the history and legacy of Ulysses. The walk features music, sculptures, murals, famous landmarks and readings and the experience is entertaining and fascinating for Joyce fans and newcomers.
