In 1922, the literary world was shaken by the publication of James Joyce’s novel Ulysses. Regarded as obscene literature in the United States and Britain, the novel gained further notoriety and popularity as well. This course will examine the book’s controversial publication history, the 1933 Supreme Court’s decision to allow publication in the United States, and the novel’s literary and academic significance.

Doug Rose taught in the English/Humanities Department at SUNY Canton for 28 years where he occasionally assigned selected chapters and passages from Joyce’s Ulysses to his literature students. Since then, he has continued to reread, study, and discuss the novel with colleagues and friends.
