James Joyce’s encyclopedic 1922 novel Ulysses is considered by many to be the greatest literary achievement of the twentieth century. This course offers an in-depth reading of Ulysses, as well as Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and selections from Finnegans Wake. Discussions of the primary texts are complemented by social/historical, biographical, and political contexts that situate Joyce’s formal experimentalism and ethics in relation to modernism, postcolonialism, feminism, psychoanalysis, and other literary-critical and theoretical approaches.
