or Howard Jacobson, James Joyce's Ulysses is the greatest Jewish novel of the 20th century; for Henry Goodman the novel that hugely articulated and reshaped his artistic hopes and identity as an actor.
Together they revisit, discuss and read from the iconic text published 90 years ago this February. They will contend that Bloom, this great hero of consciousness and inaction, weakness and masochism, belongs in the great tradition of comic fiction. They will also look at Bloom as a prophetic figure, the outsider, who as a Jew, can guide others out of trauma because of his intimacy with suffering. Derbhle Crotty joins them to read passages illustrating Molly's complex relationship with her husband. The session will include a dynamic look at “interior monologue”.
