Gedempte Molenwijk 18-20
8442 BG Heerenveen
For Joyce, literature 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'.
Written between 1914 and 1921, Ulysses has survived bowderlization,
legal action and bitter controversy. An undisputed modernist classic, its
ceaseless verbal inventiveness and astonishingly wide-ranging allusions
confirm its standing as an imperishable monument to the human condition.
It holds a mirror up to the colonial capital that was Dublin on 16 June
1904, but it also offers redemptive glimpses of a future world which might
be made over in terms of those utopian moments.
