He liked thick word soup

In honor of Bloomsday, which is celebrated each June 16 by James Joyce fans worldwide, try your hand at He liked thick word soup, a Joycean app by chronotext / Ariel Malka.

The idea is that by manually untangling word threads and matching them to part of a phrase from Ulysses, the player is actually doing a close reading of a short passage from the dense novel.

It’s available for iPhone and Android and it’s free.
