More than just a walking guide, The Ulysses Guide provides a unique approach to James Joyce’s Ulysses by following its eighteen episodes to their original locations and recreating the Dublin of 1904 against the backdrop to today’s streetscape. It explains the action of the book in terms of its settings and illuminates some of the more challenging sections of Joyce’s work.
This latest edition has been updated to incorporate new additions to the landscape, such as the Spire and the James Joyce Bridge, and changes to Joycean landmarks like the Ormond Hotel, Sweny’s pharmacy and Barney Kiernan’s pub. New research has thrown fresh light on some puzzling moments in Ulysses and challenged traditional views on the various addresses, characters and activities in the book. A must for every Joyce lover.
