Ulysses is one of the greatest literary works in the English language. In his remarkable tour de force, Joyce catalogues one day – June 16, 1904 – in immense detail as Leopold Bloom wanders through Dublin, talking, observing, musing – and always remembering Molly, his passionate, wayward wife. Set in the shadow of Homer’s Odyssey, internal thoughts – Joyce’s famous stream of consciousness – give physical reality extra colour and perspective.
This long-awaited unabridged recording of James Joyce’s Ulysses is released to coincide with the 100th anniversary of “Bloomsday.”
Regarded by many as the single most important novel of the 20th century, the abridged recording by Norton and Riordan released in the first year of Naxos AudioBooks (1994) is a proven bestseller. Now the two return – having recorded most of Joyce’s other work – in a newly recorded unabridged production, directed by Joyce expert Roger Marsh.
