Widely considered the most influential (and perhaps the greatest) novel of the twentieth century, Joyce’s 1922 masterpiece is a feast of comic invention and linguistic exuberance. Famous for its multi-layered stream-of-consciousness innovations, it is at its simplest one day in the life of three Dubliners: Leopold Bloom, Molly Bloom, and Stephen Dedalus on June 16, 1904. The course is ideal for anyone who always wished to tackle Joyce’s novel in a fun yet focused class that emphasizes his essentially comic and humane vision of life.
