Ulysses was officially published 100 years ago on Joyce’s 40th birthday on February 2, 1922, by Shakespeare and Co. bookstore, Paris’s equivalent of Politics and Prose. This course is an overview of Ulysses, which many consider the seminal novel of the 20th Century. If Ulysses has been on your bucket list but you never got round to reading this great novel, this course will make it easier for you. The class will explore the depths of this complex novel; both beginner and veteran students are most welcome to partake in the class. And as Joyce said: "so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant." In our six sessions we will look at the overall structure of the novel and concentrate on the more accessible and humorous sections. Ulysses takes place on “Bloomsday,” June 16, 1904, the day on which Joyce first walked out with the love of his life, Nora. There is no advance reading required, but in the first session a reading schedule of the chapters that we will concentrate on will be provided.
