‘The Dead’, Dubliners by James Joyce
Romping through Bloomsday
James Joyce is considered one of the most influential modernist writers of the 20th century. With over 700 pages and no chapter headings, Joyce based his epic tale, Ulysses, on Homer’s Odyssey about a hero’s journey home.
As the main characters, Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus, journey across Dublin, they experience all of life in one day. The story of Ulysses is set on 16 June 1904 which has become known as Bloomsday, after the book’s protagonist, and is celebrated every year around the world.
Celebrate Bloomsday in style with our fun pocket guide, Romping through Ulysses. Find out what’s happening in the story and step into the character’s shoes with what to wear, and what to do, eat and drink.
