Robert Berry's comic adaptation of the 1922 edition of James Joyce's epic novel, ULYSSES accompanied by a page-by-page reader's guide, dramatis personae, and pop-up translations of non-english passages. This installment features Berry's adaptation of the Telemachus and Calypso chapters. The reader's guide is enhanced with discussion groups and links to online information sources, photos, videos, and other assorted bric a brac allowing you to dive as deep as you like into the world of Ulysses. If you've always wanted to read ULYSSES, but have been intimidated by its size and density, this is a great way in and is a great new way in its own right to experience literature.

Wonderful idea and execution
My previous attempts at starting Ulysses foundered in the first pages. I wasn't sure what the priest was doing shaving and praying and I couldn't make sense of the location. Seeing the dressing and carriage of Buck made it instantly clear that he's jesting.
The images ground the text without simplifying it. This is a much better solution than the traditional method of annotation which takes the reader further away from the story.
Ulysses Should Be Seen!
This is a wonderful introduction to Joyce's "Ulysses" for anybody interested in exploring what the book is about without the anxiety of investing hours into reading the original tome. I absolutely love this new media. Keep the titles coming. Kudos!
Let's get on with it.
Are you ever going to update this, how about finishing it. I bought it expecting to be able to read the whole book.
