6 – 7:30 pm
We will learn how to read and appreciate Joyce’s challenging prose, an activity best accomplished by a careful exploration of Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. First-time readers will be introduced to the rich complexities of Joyce’s language while more seasoned readers will discover new verbal intricacies in his fiction. Please read “The Sisters” and “Araby” from Dubliners for the first meeting.
