The first part of this two-part class focuses on the first ten chapters of Ulysses, with particular emphasis on the city of Dublin. In his meticulous reconstruction of the city, Joyce showcases those fault lines of history that have shaped the lives of the Dubliners we encounter.
In our close readings, we will not simply mark Dublin streets on a map; rather, we will examine the ways in which the confluence of space, time, and language offers us a deep understanding of Joyce’s beloved city and its inhabitants.
Susan Bazargan is an Emerita Professor of English and a James Joyce scholar.
