Ulysses, a novel by Irish writer James Joyce, was first published in book form in 1922 by Shakespeare & Company in Paris. Stylistically dense and exhilarating, it is generally regarded as a masterpiece and has been the subject of numerous volumes of commentary and analysis. The novel is constructed as a modern parallel to Homer’s Odyssey.
