Ulysses http://wamc.org en Judith Roberts and Joseph Panzica - Bloomsday http://wamc.org/post/judith-roberts-and-joseph-panzica-bloomsday <p>Weighing in at more than 265,000 words,&nbsp; the novel <em>Ulysses</em> by James Joyce is, to say the least, a literary challenge to those who attempt to read it. The book, published in 1904, has 18 episodes, extending over 700 pages, and has been called dirty, blasphemous and unreadable. It is often a college assignment, but for some students in western Massachusetts seeking their GED, or high&nbsp;school equivalency degree, <em>Ulysses</em> is on the reading list.</p> Thu, 14 Jun 2012 16:45:00 +0000 Brian Shields 41084 at http://wamc.org
