Birmingham, Kevin. The most dangerous book : the battle for James Joyce's Ulysses, 2014.
Wikipedia, April 24, 2017: Ulysses (novel) (Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer 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 in Paris by Sylvia Beach on 2 February 1922; Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's epic poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between the poem and the novel, with structural correspondences between the characters and experiences of Leopold Bloom and Odysseus, Molly Bloom and Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus and Telemachus, in addition to events and themes of the early twentieth century context of modernism, Dublin, and Ireland's relationship to Britain)
Britannica online, April 24, 2017 (Ulysses, novel by James Joyce, first excerpted in The Little Review in 1918-20, at which time further publication of the book was banned. Ulysses was published in book form in 1922 by Sylvia Beach, the proprietor of the Paris bookstore Shakespeare and Co.; The novel is constructed as a modern parallel to Homer's Odyssey. All of the action of the novel takes place in Dublin on a single day (June 16, 1904); the book is most famous for its use of a variant of the interior monologue known as the stream-of-consciousness technique; some scholars regard this classic as a masterwork of Modernism, while others hail it as the pivotal point of Postmodernism)
Mulhall, Ed. James Joyce, 1914, Trieste, via RTÉ Century Ireland website, viewed April 24, 2017 (During that year of 1914, Joyce, as well as correcting Dubliners, finished and revised Portrait, wrote his only published play Exiles, also wrote poetry and the series of sketches later published as Giacomo Joyce and planning and began the writing of Ulysses. He did this in a city, Trieste, at the very edge of the Austria-Hungarian Empire; Once Portrait was completed, he immediately focussed on Ulysses so as to be able to report to his brother Stanislaus on Bloomsday 1915 in a postcard written in German: 'the first episode of my new novel Ulysses is written')
