This course is an introduction to James Joyce’s Ulysses, which many consider the seminal novel of the 20th Century.  If Ulysses has been on your bucket list but you never got around to reading this great novel, this course will make it easier for you.  In our five 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. Ulysses was published on Joyce’s 40th birthday by Shakespeare and Co. bookstore, Paris’s equivalent of Politics and Prose. There is no advance reading required.
