Summary :

Ulysses is unquestionably one of the most celebrated novels in the English language, and the text most expressive of the psyche of modern man and woman. It tells the sadly comic story of Leopold Bloom, a good man led by love, who on an otherwise ordinary day is forced to contemplate the void of uncertainty in which we all stand.

One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, Ulysses has had a profound influence on modern fiction. In a series of episodes covering the course of a single day--16 June 1906--the novel traces the movements of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus through the streets of Dublin.

Edition #1: Ulysses

Ulysses (2008)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

Ulysses, one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, has had a profound influence on modern fiction. In a series of episodes covering the course of a single day, 16 June 1904, the novel traces the movements of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus through the streets of Dublin. Each episode has its own literary style, and the epic journey of Odysseus is only one of many correspondencies that add layers of meaning to the text. Ulysses has been the subject of controversy since copies of the first English edition were burned by the New York Post Office Authorities. Today critical interest centres on the authority of the text, and this edition, complete with an invaluable Introduction, notes, and appendices, republishes for the first time, without interference, the original 1922 text.
