Follow in the footsteps of James Joyce’s novel Ulysses, a narrative that follows its protagonists Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus around Dublin in the course of an ordinary day in early twentieth-century Ireland. Joyce’s landmark modernist tale parallels the ten-year journey of Odysseus in Homer’s epic poem the Odyssey, and the novel has been said to render “as precisely and as directly as it is possible in words to do, what our participation in life is like—or rather, what it seems to us like as from moment to moment we live” (Paul Grey). In this event, designed for teens and adults, explore the storytelling mechanism of the hero’s journey in a single day through writing, photography, and multimedia, or map a journey through a city, country, or planet of your choosing, as many have mapped Leopold Bloom’s epic day in Dublin. The event will be led by Elliot Jacobs, Upper School English teacher at the Community School, Sun Valley. This event is free, but registration is required.
