Ulysses by James Joyce( Visual )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Itʹs hardly surprising that it took 45 years for someone to attempt an adaptation of James Joyceʹs dazzling modernist masterpiece that parallels a day in the life of unassuming Jewish advertising man Leopold Bloom with the events of Homerʹs Odyssey: itʹs a novel thatʹs the very definition of the term 'unfilmable'. But Joseph Strick made a BAFTA, Oscar and Golden Globe nominated go of it, helped by some outstanding Irish actors (Milo OʹShea, Maurice Roeves, T.P. McKenna, Sheila OʹSullivan) who are fully alert to the musicality of Joyceʹs prose: almost every word in the Oscar-nominated screenplay was taken directly from the book. Wolfgang Suschitzkyʹs black-and-white photography of authentic Dublin locations brings Joyceʹs famously detailed descriptions vividly to life, and Barbara Jeffordʹs impassioned delivery of Molly Bloomʹs notoriously erotic monologue caused such a furore that the film was banned from general release in Ireland until 2000, something that would doubtless have amused Joyce himself. -- Container
