Reading James Joyce's Ulysses in Context (continued) (Summer term) (LIT 22)

  • Day and time: Thursday 11:00 - 12:30
  • Length of course: 1 term. Summer (10 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 20
  • Start date: 15 April 2021
  • Description:

    This is a continuation of my 2019-20 course on James Joyce's Ulysses (an extension rendered necessary due to the loss of time from the coronavirus outbreak); for this reason, because we are now halfway through the book, it will generally not be suitable for the beginner; nevertheless, if you were not previously on the course, and are interested, do please ask me. Essentially a guided journey through Ulysses, the controversial and influential masterpiece at the heart of twentieth-century literature, aimed at accommodating both the first time reader and the more experienced 'Ulyssean' traveller, our reading will be informed through the historical and cultural context of Joyce's time. This is a group combining tutorial, reading, and discussion, and the single required reading for the course is Ulysses itself, undertaken across the duration of the course. As ever, we will work together at our own pace and understanding.
