Ulysses is one of the greatest literary works in the English language.

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 )
30 editions published between 1995 and 2016 in English and held by 442 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 finest fiction, in language which cries out to read aloud"--Container

The third policeman by Flann O'Brien( Sound Recording )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
Flann O'Brien's most popular and surrealistic novel concerns an imaginary, hellish village police force and a local murder. Weird, satirical, and very funny, its popularity has suddenly increased after the novel was featured in the 5 October 2005 episode of the hit television series Lost. The series' creators have said that anyone who has read the book "will have a lot more ammunition when dissecting plotlines" of the show. Here it comes to life in a new unabridged recording. Even with Ulysses and Finnegans wake behind him, James Joyce might have been envious" wrote one critic about the work of Flann O'Brien

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

Born in Dublin in 1865, Yeats drew strength from the Irish tradition, as can be seen in this special audiobook, which presents the most important poems in the context of his life and ambitions. His poetic urgency was fueled by an active and varied life, as he gained his inspiration from the men and women he knew, classical sources and contemporary politics
