Event description
Ulysses – the novel that inspired so many artists and writers

About this Event

Join Lucy Brennan Shiel for a relaxed and engaging introduction to this important work. Lucy will share her trials and tribulations with reading this difficult and challenging novel and open a conversation to help understand its context and relevance today.

If you’ve never heard of it, are curious about it, it’s on your reading list or you’d like to reconnect with it, come along to this inspiring morning event.

An introductory Ulysses event

Join Lucy to explore the text, look at some well-known passages, grapple with some perplexing words, highlight Joyce’s experimentation and enjoy the naughtiness!Lucy has been running a Ulysses reading group in Hastings since 2017 and she has organised annual Bloomsday events in Hastings. (Bloomsday commemorates the 16th June 1904 – the day on which the events of James Joyce’s Ulysses take place in Dublin.)

James Joyce’s Ulysses

James Joyce (1882-1941) was an Irish novelist, short story writer, poet, teacher and literary critic. He is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the 20th Century. He is best known for his novel Ulysses (first published in 1922) – a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer’s Odyssey are paralleled in a variety of literary styles – most famously – stream-of-consciousness.

Lucy Brennan Shiel is an Irish artist living and working in Hastings since 2010. Lucy has been exploring Joyce’s Ulysees as part of her creative practice for a number of years. She is inspired by its experimentation, universality, immense positivity and generosity.

Lucy believes that Ulysees is best explored and enjoyed by reading it aloud in a friendly gathering and is passionate about sharing its magic.
