Description

Heralded as one of the greatest novels of the 20th century, Ulysses is also considered one of the most daunting. The Rosenbach offers a welcoming discussion-based environment and unparalleled access to primary resource materials from our James Joyce collection to deepen readers’ understanding of the text and the author himself. First-time Ulysses readers and returning fans alike are welcome in either group.

This Ulysses Reading Group meets every second Wednesday of the month from October through June. A schedule confirmation and syllabus will be available closer to the start date.
