Odyssey: Reading James Joyce's 'Ulysses'—A Bloomsday Celebration

Ulysses is a difficult book. Reading it divides the world into two groups of people: those who adore it and those who have not made it through. The story of its publication history is also complex, with the early editions famously riddled with errors that scholars have been battling over since. This lecture will introduce attendees to the book, give pointers on how to read it, and tell the tale of how the instructor's lifelong obsession with the book began with a conversation with the celebrated musician David Bowie in a New York bookstore. The instructor is John Hessler.
