This is not about yet another companion to Ulysses. Ulysses and Us: The Art of Everyday Life in Joyce’s Masterpiece by Declan Kiberd is simply an invitation to enjoy what has become quite a daunting work.
While it may be true that Ulysses is more fun and meaningful with some context, it is still a novel, and one that should not necessarily imprison its readers to its own annotations.
Sudip Bose’s review, A Day in the Life, from the Autumn 2009 issue of The American Scholar, sheds light on how Kiberd’s project can assist any reader in their time with Ulysses. So if you feel like spending a particularly fun day on the streets of Dublin, check out the review and pick up this accomplice.
