Nature of Event: Join Bloomsday’s Joycean expert guides, Frances Devlin-Glass and Steve Carey, on Saturday 13 April 2019 as they present a fast-paced, fun and fascinating masterclass on Joyce’s favourite chapter, Ithaca, the second last in Ulysses. Joyce described Ithaca as his own favourite of all eighteen episodes of Ulysses. Find out why it’s Bloomsday’s advocates, too!
Suitable for those a little familiar with Ulysses as well as for beginners, this is a day-long exploration of the final touching, sad, baffling and hilarious encounter between young Stephen and Leopold Bloom. And Bloom, having considered what to do about her infidelity, returns to his wife’s bed – an act with cosmic implications. Bloomsday in Melbourne has been running Joyce courses for well over 15 years, and they are phenomenally popular with readers, so early booking recommended.
