Ambitious online project tackles the monolithic modernist masterpiece
ThreeMonkeysOnline have drawn my attention to an ambitious creative project begun back in 2008. American cartoonist Robert Berry is painstakingly adapting James Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses into an online graphic novel. The adaptation not only intends to present the novel in its entirety, a collosal task in itself, but intends to include annotations alongside a reader's guide to the text.'Beginning on Bloomsday (June 16th) 2008, Philadelphia cartoonist Robert Berry takes us on a trip through one of English literature's most challenging and rewarding novels - James Joyce's 'Ulysses' - adapted for comics.
'The adaptation, 'Ulysses "Seen"', will appear exclusively on the web in serialized form and will attempt to interpret the novel in its entirety, though that may take some time.'
