Feb 2nd 1922 - Ulysses is published

Ulysses is a novel by the Irish author James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American Journal 'The little review' from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach in February 1922, in Paris.

One of the most important works of Modernist literature, it has been called 'a demonstration and summation of the entire movement'. 'Before Joyce no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking'.

Ulysses' stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring and experimental prose, full of puns, parodies, and allusions, as well as its rich characterisations and broad humour, made the book a highly regarded novel in the Modernist pantheon
