DetailsAs the day begins, Stephen Dedalus is displeased with his friend and remains aloof. A little later, he teaches history at Garrett Deasys boys school. Leopold Bloom begins his day by preparing breakfast for his wife, Molly Bloom. He serves it to her in bed along with the mail. As their day unfolds, Joyce paints for us a picture of not only whats happening outside but also whats happening inside their minds. Drawing on the characters, motifs, and symbols of Homers Odyssey, James Joyces Ulysses is a remarkable modernist novel. It has lived through various criticisms and controversies, and has undergone several theatre, film, and television adaptations. It continues to remain a literary masterpiece.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: James Joyce (1882-1941) was born in Dublin, Ireland, to a well-meaning but financially inept father and a solemn, pious mother. One of the most revered writers of the 20th century, he was noted for his experimental use of language in his works. His first publication, an essay on Ibsens play, appeared in the Fortnightly Review in 1900. In 1904, he made his first attempt at a novel, Stephen Hero, and also attempted to publish A Portrait of the Artist, an essay-story dealing with aesthetics, only to have it rejected. At the outset of the First World War, Joyce moved to Zurich, where he wrote Exiles, reworked on the early chapters of Ulysses, and published A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man in a serial form. It appeared in twenty-five instalments in The Egoist. Almost a complete rewrite of the abandoned Stephen Hero, it is heavily autobiographical incorporating the techniques of stream of consciousness and interior monologue. Joyce died in 1941 at the age of 59.
