About this Event
Join Lannan Foundation and James Joyce enthusiasts worldwide as we celebrate Bloomsday, honoring Joyce's masterpiece Ulysses, the events of which take place over the course of one day, 16 June 1904. This year, Joyce scholar Professor James Heffernan presents a lecture on "Stephen Dedalus, Leopold Bloom, and the Ghost of Shakespeare."
Professor Heffernan hosted an online Q&A on Tuesday 16 June. It was not recorded.
In Chapter 9 of Ulysses, which is set in Dublin’s National Library, Stephen Dedalus delivers to various literary friends a lecture on Shakespeare. In this intensely personal lecture, Stephen argues that the key to Shakespeare’s whole life is the ghost scene in Hamlet. Watch (or listen below to the audio version) as Professor Heffernan takes us deep into this chapter.
