Documents on Display: James Joyce, My Favorite Hero(es)

From 06/07/2017 to 06/30/2017

The partner desk in the Rosenbach rare book library currently features books that inspired or were referenced in James Joyce’s literary endeavors. James Joyce: My Favorite Hero(es)  features Virgil, Dante, and Shakespeare. Be sure not to miss the case on the mantle, which explains Joyce’s early interest in Homer.

These documents may be viewed by taking one of our historic house tours, offered on the hour, or by visiting the Rosenbach during Bloomsday 2017.
