Molly Bloom's monologue at the end of James Joyce's Ulysses is recognised as one of the most famous female narratives in modern literature. It has been used as the basis of songs, re-appeared in movies, quoted in other literary works and in terms of its effect on Irish culture was, as the award-winning writer Eavan Boland puts it, "a liberating signpost to this country's future." Sensuous, compelling and at times hugely funny, this soliloquy is the only time in Joyce's seminal novel where Molly's voice is heard directly. In it, we hear the otherwise silent character bare her soul on life, love, sex, and loneliness. A must-see for fans of James Joyce, literature and independent women everywhere!
