Join Jesse Meyers for a 13-week series of lectures/open discussions analyzing Ulysses from the pen of the 20th Century’s most influential writer. The weekly sessions will be held in the Greenwich Library lower level Marx Family Black Box Theater and attendees may bring their lunch.
Ulysses is set in Dublin on an “ordinary” day–June 16, 1904. Irish author James Joyce published the work in 1922 and it is generally regarded as a masterpiece and the subject of analysis for its style and its parallels to Homer’s Odyssey.
Each workshop session will discuss multiple episodes,and the story advances with each session. Once registered, participants will be given the syllabus that lists text to be read each week.
The text used in the sessions will be: Ulysses, the “corrected” edition/Gabler edition and copies can be found in the Greenwich Library collection. Place a hold on the title HERE and pick up your copy at Greenwich Library.
