Most widely held works by Jim Norton
Ulysses by James Joyce( Sound Recording )
35 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and German and held by 625 libraries worldwide
Ulysses is one of the greatest literary works in the English language. In his remarkable tour de force, Joyce catalogues one day, June 16, 1904, in immense detail as Leopold Bloom wanders through Dublin, talking, observing, musing and always remembering Molly, his passionate, wayward wife. Set in the shadow of Homer's Odyssey, internal thoughts Joyce's famous stream of consciousness give physical reality extra colour and perspective
A portrait of the artist as a young man by James Joyce( Sound Recording )
24 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 437 libraries worldwide
"In 'A portrait of the artist as a young man, ' Joyce describes the early life of Stephen Dedalus: significant memories from infancy, schooldays, family life, his first taste of sin, guilt, repentance-- and his passage to freedom as he elects to leave Ireland forever. This is, in effect, an autobiography. Stephen is Joyce; every person he encounters and every incident he experiences, is drawn from life. The writing, though, displays the colour and imagination of the very finest fiction, in language which cries out to be read aloud"--Container

William Butler Yeats remains one of the most popular poets of the 20th century.
