James Joyce's Ulysses

Register for this Spring 2024 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website .
Considered the greatest canonical work modernity has produced, James Joyce’s Ulysses  not only is a modern Odyssey  but a superb portrait of a provincial yet also cosmopolitan city of Dublin at a crucial time in its history. This extraordinary novel is a gallery of literary styles; vivid, memorable characters; and warm if sometimes subtle humor. In its triad of the aesthetic, reflective Stephen; Leopold Bloom, the robust everyman; and Molly, his sensuous, creative wife, Joyce created  three of the most compelling fictional representations of the twentieth century. We will discuss the novel in a way that opens up this sometimes inscrutable book and reveals not just its knowledge and wisdom but its humor and humanity. The preferred edition of Ulysses  is the Cambridge Centenary Edition. Spring 2024 tuition is $579.
