Further information:  

This lecture explores why it is that most readers have difficulty reading Ulysses. It provides some pointers for reading the big, apparently ‘baggy monster’ that is Ulysses. Dr. Frances Devlin-Glass, who has taught Joyce for 35 years, hopes to provide some insight into what its admirers enjoy about it: in particular its astonishingly realised characters, its literary experimentalism and its radicalism in the arena of ideas.  This lecture is part of the Words by the Bay, Bayside Literary Series.Baysidelogo
