Richard Ellmann, biographer extraordinaire, has written an intense and thorough guide to the reading of James Joyces' herculean novel, "Ulysses." If one intends to read the book, one should truly begin with this slim volume of careful interpretation and suggested meanings, as much he will encounter will be archaic usage of the English, Greek and Italian languages to name a few ! In addition, Ellmann correlates the under lying text of the travels of Ulysses in Greek myth ! This book a "must "for the reader of James Joyce's most read and least understood novel !
