Footsteps of Leopold Bloom Tour

August 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

| €8 - €10
Footsteps 2017

The ‘Lestrygonians’ episode of Ulysses sees Leopold Bloom make his way through the city centre on his way from Middle Abbey Street to the National Library. As he begins to feel the rumblings of hunger, his thoughts become centred on the social, political, cultural and religious importance of food; as he goes on to think, food underlies all relations to the extent that ‘peace and war depend on some fellows digestion’. Bloom’s musings on the importance of food are mixed with a commentary on the architecture of the city, emphasising Dublin’s position as a colonial city. Join our guide as we follow in Bloom’s footsteps and discuss these thoughts, focusing on Joyce’s own efforts to bring the unsavoury workings of the body into a work of art and use food as the basis of a political and social commentary. This tour ends at Kildare Street/National Library of Ireland.
