I’d recommend The Name of the Rose, Foucault’s Pendulum, or Baudolino way before I’d start suggesting Ulysses. ND, this was not just for me personally but for anyone else with an interest in literature who reads this thread or might want to assess a recommendation. It's a good idea, especially when someone has written an essay denigrating the writer and especially when dealing with a writer and a book many claim to be esoteric, hard to follow, and full of pointless word games, if one could offer actual evidence of its being brilliant, eloquent, worth reading, highly intelligent. Or the like.If I had a dollar for every time I've read or heard "well, read Dubliners not Ulysses because it's unintelligble". And not just from Oists.
