“Ithaca”: The Only Episode Worth Reading

According to a recent Slate.com article, “Ithaca” is the only episode worth reading in Ulysses.  I guess we’ll be the judge of that soon enough, as “Ithaca” is part of our current and last assignment.  Yes, I did say last assignment.  I bet some of us are thinking, “Why didn’t I hear about ‘Ithaca’ being the only episode worth reading before I bothered to read the other 16?”

    I’m reading Ithaca now (I take breaks from struggling through the preceding chapter Eumaeus) and am enjoying it quite a bit (remembering “learning” via catechisms early on) but to say it’s the only episode worth reading-ridiculous! That’s one of the things I’ve enjoyed about this group adventure–taking the time to read the episodes closely enough to see which ones really stand out–for me, Sirens, Cyclops, Nausikaa, Circe, and now Ithaca and Penelope.
