Screen Shot 2014-06-03 at 6.20.43 PM

All manner of interesting articles going back to the magazine's founding 164 years ago in 1850, a great number of them free, the way we like it.

Today is Bloomsday

UlyssesCover

Bloomsday is the only international holiday that recognizes one specific work of art (James Joyce's "Ulysses").

Festivities at the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philadelphia — home to Joyce's original "Ulysses" manuscript — are ongoing as you read these words.

A book review of "The Most Dangerous Book: The Battle for James Joyce's 'Ulysses'", which appeared in the June 7 issue of The Economist, is here.

If you'd rather just read the book, you can do that too, right here — free, the way we like it.

Up top is the cover of the 1922 first edition.
