Happy June 16th, Baboons! It is Bloomsday, the day that Ulysses was set. I have to admit I read that book several decades ago and couldn’t make sense of it. I am tempted to reread it now, as I think I have some added maturity to “get” what Joyce was trying to say. We will have to see about that. It may be as incomprehensible as it was the first time I tried to read it in my 20’s. I have really enjoyed hearing recitations of Ulysses on Bloomsday, as it seems to be more accessible when it is read aloud.
What are your experiences with James Joyce’s works? What do you reread?
