commemoration of a literary milestone,
Ulysses, the great novel by James Joyce,
was set on and transpires on
June 16, 1904 in Dubln.
The characters, the city and the story
have attained mythical status in some
literary circles and Bloomsday has evolved
into a day that commemorates and savors
that glorious fictional piece of time.
I was recently struck by the realization that reading James Joyce
changed my life in many ways. My intent now is to spend a portion
of my time promoting my belief that reading, enjoying and learning
about James Joyce and his works can be a very expansive
and positive endeavor. My first step was to start the
James Joyce Colloquium and it has already opened doors and given
my limited knowledge and understanding of Joyce and his writing
a boost. I hope that my readers will check this out and consider
joining the group.
Here are links to the latest issue of the
Irish E-Missive which has a brief feature on the Joyce project
and to our new FaceBook Group.
