Community description:Ulysses discussion & appreciation
We're reading James Joyce's Ulysses, one chapter each month. We're an eclectic group of readers, some with higher degrees, some with no degrees. We all enjoy the book, and wanted to share our delight as we come back to the text one more time.

Our discussions are limited to members because Joyce's prose and our reactions often explore sexual situations, and we prefer to spend our time thinking rather than beating back spammers. Lurking membership is OK. You can get a free DreamWidth account (use the "contact details" on this page if you need an account code). Or you can be a member with an Open ID. (Open ID is a multi-site electronic identity system that's provided by LiveJournal, Yahoo/Flickr, WordPress, Blogger and many other services).

You are welcome to read the corresponding chapter in the Odyssey at the same time, but it is not necessary. The parallels between the two will be discussed, so it might be a good idea to at least familiarize yourself with the Odyssey if you have not read it before.

Our schedule is:

Oct. 2009—Dubliners
Nov. 2009—Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Dec. 2009—Hamlet and Yeats’ short poem “Who Goes with Fergus?”
