Ulysses - James Joyce
Ulysses

Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous & unreadable. In a 1933 court decision, Judge John M. Woolsey declared it an emetic book--tho he found it sufficiently unobscene to allow its importation into the USA--& Virginia Woolf was moved to decry Joyce's "cloacal obsession."

Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous & unreadable. In a 1933 court decision, Judge John M. Woolsey declared it an emetic book--tho he found it sufficiently unobscene to allow its importation into the USA--& Virginia Woolf was moved to decry Joyce's "cloacal obsession."

2.0 Ulysses
I read through half the book and spent the second half reading through a Ulysses companion, attempting to understand exactly what was written.

5.0 Ulisses
Tak genialna, że mało kto ją czyta. Tak zagmatwana, że mało kto z niej wychodzi bez uszczerbku. Tak oniryczna, że po zakończeniu świat wydaje się być tylko bladym cieniem samego siebie.

2.0 Ulysses - James Joyce
I feel a bit of a philistine giving Ulysses two stars, but if I'm honest, I didn't enjoy it that much. Reading it was too much of a chore. I know it's supposed to be the greatest thing to happen to literature since the invention of the novel. But it's just way too obscure, and way too dense, and way...
