Study of the text of Ulysses, Joyce's other major works, critical texts, biographical works and annotations to consider the manner in which Joyce's flexible, whimsical and almost always unconventional stylistic experiments tell a fuller story of life than established narrative styles. Joyce's inclusions and innovations make the novel an active process of engagement, puzzling, and probing--a process that brings the reader closer to the text, and the ideas within, through the reader's active engagement.
