The World of James Joyce: 1,000-Piece Puzzle
This detailed illustration of Joyce's Dublin is packed with real people and fictional characters to seek and find. While working on the puzzle you travel back to 16 June, 1904, and join Stephen Dedalus and Buck Mulligan in their Martello tower, Blazes Boylan jingling along in his carriage, Molly Bloom in her chamber and a host of other iconic Dubliners. Whether you've got a well-thumbed copy of Finnegans Wake or you've never read a word of Joyce, you'll delight in following Bloom on his odyssey through 'dear dirty Dublin'. There's never been an easier way to piece together a story!
Included is a poster that shows a picture of the completed puzzle. On the opposite side of the poster is a guide to various scenes within the puzzle wherein you can discover more about the people and characters and get a quick run-down of all the action in Ulysses by Joyce scholar Professor Joseph Brooker.
