James Joyce's <i>Ulysses</i>

Joshua I. Kotin

Participants in the seminar will read James Joyce's Ulysses (1922) closely and carefully, episode by episode, over the twelve-week semester. Our aim will be to develop a deep understanding of the novel--its significance, and its historical and political context. In the first week of the seminar, we will read Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916); in the remaining weeks, we will read Ulysses, as well as a selection of the most influential Ulysses criticism.
