This modern literary masterpiece loosely follows the Odyssey and captures a single day in the life of ordinary Dubliners in 1904. With experimental techniques ranging from interior monologues to exuberant wordplay and earthy humor, it pushes Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. A major achievement in 20th century literature.
