Dates have not yet been determined. If you are interested, please contact us.
"Pop-up class for James Joyce's Ulysses"
In this whirlwind, 2-hour trip through James Joyce's seminal novel, which defines the modernist movement, students will be introduced to its influential originality via structure, style, content, intent, breathtaking scope, and character profiles. Set over an entire day in Dublin, Ireland, 1904, we will follow three chief protagonists and take time to luxuriate in the exquisite literary language and abundance of neologisms (neo logos = new words) and creative formatting.
"Pop-up class for James Joyce's compilation of short stories Dubliners"
In this 2-hour class, we shall voyage through Joyce's Dublin, as described in these 15 distinct vignettes, with special attention devoted to the disciplined structure, authorial objective, character development, mise-en-scène, abundance of cultural idiosyncrasies along with national and social commentary.
