James Joyce is undoubtedly the most influential writer of the early 20th Century. A master of the stream of consciousness technique, Joyce’s career defining work was the Ulysses (1922), a modern version of Homer's Odyssey with three main characters similar to the ones in Odyssey. Ulysses has gained the reputation of being amongst the finest novels ever written.
