In Our Time - James Joyce's Ulysses

Ep 1/1

Thursday 14 June

9.00am-9.45am

BBC RADIO 4

Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss James Joyce's novel Ulysses.

First published 80 years ago in Paris, Joyce's masterpiece charts a single day in the life of its protagonist, Leopold Bloom. Often hailed as the greatest example of literary modernism, the book prompted outrage and praise in equal measure, and remains one of the most-discussed novels ever written.

Listeners can look forward to Bloomsday on Radio 4 (in week 25) - a day devoted to Joyce's iconic work Ulysses.
