Bloomsday 100 : Essays on Ulysses, Hardback Book

Bloomsday 100 : Essays on Ulysses Hardback

Part of the Florida James Joyce Series series

Description

June 16, 2004, was the one hundredth anniversary of Bloomsday, the day that James Joyce's novel ""Ulysses"" takes place.

To celebrate the occasion, thousands took to the streets in Dublin, following in the footsteps of protagonist Leopold Bloom.

The event also was marked by the Bloomsday 100 Symposium, where world-renowned scholars discussed Joyce's seminal work.

This volume contains the best, most provocative readings of ""Ulysses"" presented at the conference.

The contributors to this volume urge a close engagement with the novel.

They offer readings that focus variously on the materialist, historical, and political dimensions of Ulysses.

The diversity of topics covered include nineteenth-century psychology, military history, Catholic theology, the influence of early film and music hall songs on Joyce, the post-Ulysses evolution of the one-day novel, and the challenge of discussing such a complex work amongst the sea of extant criticism.
