The 1922 publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses stirred controversy and revolutionized literature. Using theatrical readings, archival footage, and visits to the book’s Dublin locations, this playful literary doc explores the saga of Joyce’s modernist masterpiece, from the autobiographical roots to the obscenity trial of its original publishers to its enduring legacy. Get warmed up for Bloomsday and join us to celebrate the novel’s centennial anniversary.
This screening will be introduced by Rowan University Lecturer Ted Howell, Ph.D., who will stay with us for a post-screening conversation. This event is presented in partnership with The Rosenbach and the 2022 Bloomsday Festival.
