How does one approach James Joyce’s Ulysses? Reading this literary masterpiece is both like and unlike reading other novels. Through close examination and discussion of the text we will explore its major themes and concepts, navigate its calm and turbulent sections, and enjoy our travel through the landscape of this amazing book. Participants will emerge from the seminar stronger readers. Please read chapters one and two for the first session.

Susan Bazargan is an English professor emerita whose teaching and scholarship focuses on James Joyce.
