Studying Ulysses in five sessions is a daunting challenge that demands extraordinary concentration and judicious choices. Not unlike a risky funambulist, we’ll be treading a thin of time, but we’ll also be balancing ourselves with a selective explication de texte, attentiveness to narrative strategies, and insights of scholarship. At each meeting, I will offer an overview of the designated reading followed by an analysis of a specific passage or two and then a general discussion. Our group meetings are meant to facilitate dialogue among ourselves and provide participants – whether first-time or veteran readers of Ulysses – an opportunity to share their experiences with reading one of the most influential works ever written.
Before the first meeting, The Rosenbach will send the Zoom link for course meetings.
