Ulysses (A Delve Seminar)

Tue, Apr 1, 2014 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
925 SW Washington Street Portland, OR 97205

Tuesdays, April 1 – May 6, 2014 7:00 – 9:00 pm

In Ulysses, James Joyce endeavored to write a book about one day in the lives of a few Dubliners that would represent the noisy minutiae of contemporary urban existence while conveying the dignity and importance of classical literature. Published amid controversy in Paris in 1922, Ulysses recorded Joyce’s growing audacity as an artist and has since come to epitomize literary modernism. In this seminar, we will approach the book as readers rather than as scholars, hoping to follow the journeys of Joyce’s characters and to grasp the simple and humane insights of Joyce’s vision.

Guide: Christopher Zinn, an independent literature scholar, has led several Delve seminars.  He teaches humanities at the Portland Waldorf High School.
