Ulysses for Dummies

James Joyce's historic masterwork has been efficiently reduced to 18 animated cartoons:

1. June 16, 1904. 8:00 a.m. Stephen Dedalus, a young schoolteacher, speaks to his friend,
"stately, plump" Buck Mulligan, in the disused watchtower on the Liffey where they live.
5. 9:00 a.m. At the post office, Bloom gets a love letter addressed to his alter ego,
"Henry Flower."

17. Night. Bloom is unable to convince Stephen to spend the night. Bloom sees Stephen out,
and together they urinate in the garden.
