On Loving/Hating Ulysses

Yesterday was the 105th anniversary of Bloomsday - the fictional day in Edwardian Dublin described in James Joyce's Ulysses.

Joe Carter of First Thoughts marked the occasion thusly: "Oh, How I Hate Ulysses (A Bloomsday Rant)".

My concurring opinion, in which I confess (once again) my love/hate relationship with the novel is here: "RE: Hating Ulysses".

See also from The Irish Independent: "A day to rejoyce for Ulysses fans ... But many say book is blooming hard to swallow".
