A New Way to Read Ulysses for Bloomsday
I have to say, reading Irish literary legend James Joyce can be a bit of an undertaking for someone more accustomed to short, snappy blog perusing. So “Ulysses Seen” garnered my attention.
This online graphic novel tells the story of Joyce’s Ulysses. For those who missed the literary bus, the story follows one day in the life of Leopold Bloom as he makes his whay through Dublin. That one day, to be precise, is June 16, 1904, and the date is now a major celebration every year in Dublin. Bloomsday!
