Still I Remain Tied to the Mast

James Joyce's novel Ulysses faced many difficulties over charges of obscenity. I was just thinking about this, and it occurred to me that he may have hit a huge snag with the obscurity of some of the prose. The censors reading probably didn't find the parts they could understand that objectionable, but I imagine them thinking, "If this is what he's put in the bits we can read, just imagine what's in the bits we can't read!"
