Joyce's Ulysses for Everyone: Plotting the Narrative

Author: 
Mood, John
Credentials: 
Ph. D, Drew University; author of Rilke on Love and Other Difficulties,1994

PRAISE FOR JOHN MOOD'S RESEARCH ON READING ULYSSES:

Professor Leslie Fiedler (SUNY BUFFALO): “ It would be "more useful [for beginning readers] than anything else I have seen."

Irish novelist & memoirist Nuala O'Faolain: “...A charming and funny account of Ulysses" and " authoritative as well."

Best selling essayist & novelist Tom Wolfe: "I certainly enjoyed your Joycean excursion, particularly the part about Joyce's interweaving of various narrative voices."

-----------------------------------------------------------

Dr. Mood's study returns Joyce's masterwork to the reader (and to accessibility) by a coupling of essential narrative themes that are humorous, sexy and suspenseful developments and a plot cycle that speaks to James Joyce's abiding fascination with femininity, gender, Irish politics and the social relevance of national literature and the world of the novel. Mood re connects Joyce's use of first appearance and first occurrence to its Shakespearean origin and purpose.
