David Punter, English Professor at Bristol University describes Ulysses as "one of the most extraordinary works of literature in English." Punter goes on to praise the manner in which Joyce performs "an exploration of the inner workings of the mind" and Joyce's replication of random thought processes. I can see all this, and I do admire it in a way as being original, groundbreaking and inflammatory. For myself though, none of these things made Ulysses into an interesting or compelling read.
