Sheez, I didn't realize reading Ulysses would require such extensive research beforehand. How did it become regarded as a classic? I can't imagine typical readers at the time were both enlightened and educated enough to appreciate it. I suppose it intrigued the literary experts and artsy-fartsies, but not enough to fly off the bookshelves.

I'll try to envision the work more as a river with a web of tributaries than a single flow and hope I can recognize the spots where the narrative jumps. There might be a pattern here I can latch on to. On to part II.
