about this book

On the fictional morning of June 16, 1904—Bloomsday, as it has come to be known—Mr. Leopold Bloom set out from his home at 7 Eccles Street and began his day's journey through Dublin life in the pages of James Joyce's novel of the century, Ulysses. On June 16, 2004, the 100th anniversary of Bloomsday will be celebrated with great fanfare in more than sixty cities worldwide, drawing legions into a passionate appreciation of the masterpiece that heralded modernism.

yes I said yes I will Yes. offers a priceless gathering of what's been said about Ulysses since the extravagant praise and withering condemnation that first greeted it over eight decades ago. From the varied appraisals of such Joyce contemporaries as William Butler Yeats (“It is an entirely new thing....He has certainly surpassed in intensity any novelist of our time”) and Virginia Woolf (“Never did I read such tosh”), to excerpts from Tennessee Williams' term paper "Why Ulysses is Boring" and an entertaining collection of sketches, comics, photographs, and anecdotes, this is a lively and winning tribute to the most famous day in literature.


“You should approach Joyce's Ulysses as the illiterate Baptist preacher approaches the Old Testament: with faith.” —William Faulkner

“His writing is not about something. It is the thing itself.” —Samuel Beckett
