Dip into James Joyce’s inner world exploration in a dynamic one day course using the short story “The Dead” and the first two sections of Portrait of the Artist. Please read the sections in preparation for our discussion.
For those who can’t get enough of Joyce– or for those who would like to know what the fuss is about, I will be facilitating a study at CityLit, London’s centre for adult learning on May 11th. We will be looking at his formidable short story, “The Dead” which was reveals the moment of transition for Joyce into the experimental genius of his novels. We will also look at the first two sections of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Joyce’s semi-autobiographical journey into the depths of language and experience. At the start of the book Stephen is an innocent coming into being- “Who am I?” as we all ask and answer in our own terms, using our experience. How do we locate the Self in the world?
