On 16th October, as part of the 2019 Autumn/Winter Course, the James Joyce Centre will be hosting a performance of Declan Gorman's "The Dubliners Dilemma." It begins in London shortly before WW1, in the basement workroom of publisher Grant Richards, who had previously rejected ‘Dubliners’ out of worry it might breach strict obscenity laws. Now he re-reads the manuscript and recalls his uncomfortable correspondence with the truculent young genius. Should he reconsider and publish now? In all their magical glory,…

Dr Caroline Elbay's Autumn/Winter 2018 Course at The James Joyce Cultural Centre

In the Modernist literary context, the term ‘metamorphosis’ elicits immediate associations with Franz Kafka’s novella The Metamorphosis (1915) in which the protagonist, a travelling salesman, Gregor Samsa, awakens one morning to discover that he has been transformed into a bug. From the ‘bird girl’ and ‘bat-like soul’ of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, to the ‘cold nightsnake’ of Giacomo Joyce and the feminised Bloom in ‘Circe’, this lecture will explore how, through metamorphosis – a shifting…

The James Joyce Centre celebrates the publication of an unusual exercise in “biblio-memoir” or “autobloomography” that answers the question of how one person can spend an entire life with one book. During more than 50 years of reading, teaching, and writing about Joyce’s Ulysses, Michael Groden has often been asked why he has devoted so much time and energy to Joyce’s novel. Ulysses made an indelible impression when he first read it at the age of 19 – and the…

James Joyce’s last work, Finnegans Wake, is meant to be a universal epic, covering the whole of world history, and operating at a level of generality that seems intended to transcend all previous efforts of this type. Does this universality, however, come at a price, in that individual struggles and sufferings, both of…
