Abstract

Contains a lecture on James Joyce's novel Ulysses, a version of which was delivered at the Bloomsday celebrations in Melbourne, June 1997. The historical scandal of James Joyce's Ulysses may be past, but as a work of literature, a piece of writing, it remains a scandal every time we open it to read or think about what we have read or intend to read of it. It is a scandal first of all because of its sheer size - not merely its length, but the complexity it compounds and the effort of reading it demands.
