There are infinite routes through James Joyce’s dense, funny, thrilling, frustrating masterpiece Ulysses. If you’ve always wanted to read it, this is a great way in: with good company and monthly conversation. If you’ve read it before, join us to discover something new again in the novel. Over the course of our nine months of reading and discussion, participants are invited to bring their own obsessions and expertise to the table, whether it‘s catechism, nationalism, or mutton kidneys, all encountered here. This class is suited to both first-timers and re-readers, meeting one Sunday a month from October to June.
