JOYCE’S ULYSSES: A GUIDE opens the door to this 20th-century classic. At the core of the app is the unabridged text with 800 annotations. Encountered a difficulty? Just tap for an explanation!

The award-winning abridged recording of Ulysses by Jim Norton and Marcella Riordan is also contained within, as are recordings of various songs and arias mentioned in the book.

Background material includes the complete text of Homer’s Odyssey, in the new translation by Ian Johnston, alongside an article explaining Ulysses’ connection to it; a biography of Joyce; and articles on the novel’s turbulent publishing history, its translated editions, and the worldwide scholarly industry that has arisen around it.
