Abstract :

James Joyce had great interest in cinema and throughout his career he thought about the possibility of filming his work, 'Ulysses' considering Russian director Sergei Eisenstein and Walter Ruttman as the only two people who could do justice to the film. However, due to various reasons the film never got made until 25 years after Joyce's death and in 1967 independent filmmaker Joseph Strick bought rights to make the film, targeted at readers and scholars of Joyce's novel and prospective readers who could be inspired by the film and read the book.
