Have you always meant to read Ulysses?
Here's Prospero, writing in The Economist, Why You Should Read This Book. He recommends two guides: Ulysses Annotated by Don Gifford and The New Bloomsday Book by Harry Blamires
Group Read: Ulysses, Chapters 1-3 (Part I)
Group Read: Ulysses, Part II #1
Group Read: Ulysses, Part III
Fixed the Prospero link.
Someone around here suggested Frank Delaney's podcasts as well. My memory sucks so I can't credit the right person (sorry!) - I haven't listened yet but the blurb sounds intriguing.
In what month is this planned? I've got two others to which I'm already committed this month. Joyce isn't in the Irish Author Challenge this year, so I can't recommend based on that. February is a short month, but March might be good, especially with St. Patrick's Day. I just can't commit to it this month.
Listened to the first podcast, which is about the first paragraph. An eye opener. So many layers.
We might need more than 3 months!
>4 luvamystery65: - Yup, we had planned to start in May and go for 3 months or so.
I was looking for the podcasts and found it but my phone only went back to episode 3 so I listened to it to get an idea of what to expect. At the end, he says 'and to think, we are only on page 1'. So yes, there are many, many layers to this one! I am scared and intrigued at the same time.
Whew! I may be able to join you if it's in May and we take a few months.
>3 thornton37814:, >4 luvamystery65: Strange things on LT. I didn't see your posts here yesterday. Welcome to Ulysses. As Yells said, we're starting in May and have estimated it could take at least 3 months.
>6 Yells: It took me a while to find episode 1 - the archives seemed to start somewhere in the middle. At 700 + pages and a podcast per paragraph, Frank Delaney must have just been getting started when he finished at podcast 368. His mellow, humorous, Irish-American voice is good to listen to.
>9 thornton37814:, I'll be right there with you. There are podcasts on writing I'd like to listen to, but I just don't have the patience for them--I need to be doing something with my hands, so anything like that is something I just have to read rather than listen to!
Fab - I have had this on my Kindle for ages, been quite intimidated by it.
Wow, is it May already. Alrighty, I'll get my copy out from the bookshelf and take a few deep breaths... :D
Looks like I am not going to get to Ulysses this time, am reading Kristen Lavransdatter in the group challenge, have a pile of library books just come in, work is getting busy...
I will reread Ulysses one day when I can dedicate the time required for this big read, I am envious of you all though, enjoy the journey !
