Stream of consciousness, narrative technique in nondramatic fiction intended to render the flow of myriad impressions—visual, auditory, physical, associative, and subliminal—that impinge on the consciousness of an individual and form part of his awareness along with the trend of his rational thoughts.

The term was first used by the psychologist William James in The Principles of Psychology. Homer’s Odyssey has 18 episodes and Ulysses maintains the same number of episodes.

Ulysses was so inventive that it seemed to exhaust the possibilities for innovation in the English novel. Joyce, therefore, moved beyond English and wrote Finnegans Wake () in a language of puns, allusions, and neologisms.

Ulysses. COMMENTARY | MOVIES Adrift on the stream of consciousness. I've read this book five times. It's not that I love it so much. I don't. It may be because I've heard so often that Ulysses is the greatest novel of the twentieth century.

Or perhaps because it's so difficult, I.
