Your browser window is currently too small; please widen it or switch to a device with a wider viewing screen. Due to dissertation time constraints and browser space constraints, book pages aren't currently available on phones, some tablets, or at narrower browser sizes. Please use the site with a higher resolution tablet (and/or try flipping from vertical to horizontal orientation), laptop, or desktop computer to read Ulysses on this site for now. I'm hoping to address tablet design by Summer 2015.

    Pyrrhus
    Text: 
    The term ''Pyrrhic victory'' is named after him, as many of his battles were won only through heavy losses that were ultimately disastrous (''Another victory like that and we are done for'').
