Om Ulysses Bores Me So
The publication of James Joyce's Ulysses was met with both hyperbolic praise and scorn: was Joyce's evocation of a day in the life of Leopold Bloom's Dublin a work of genius? Or was it drivel? Was it ';an entirely new thing' (W. B. Yeats), or ';a turgid welter of pornography' (Edith Wharton)? A ';work of high genius' (Edmund Wilson) or something rather slighter: ';Never did I read such tosh,' Virginia Woolf wrote. In ';Ulysses Bores Me So,' a selection from the Bloomsday compendium yes I said yes I will Yes., the evidence is laid bare: the first reviews, letters, and reactions to the book that would change the course of literary history.
