€8 – €10 9 tickets left

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’.

The James Joyce Centre is delighted to welcome Anthony Jordan for the May talk in the 2019 Spring/Summer Lecture Series. His talk will focus on the issues regarding the repatriation of Joyce's remains to Ireland upon his death in 1941. Nora Barnacle wanted her husband repatriated in 1941 after his sudden death in Zurich. After the repatriation of WB Yeats in 1948, she again hoped that he might be repatriated. But the Irish ‘politicians, scholars and priests’ would not have it.…
