Ulysses Reading GroupMeeting – Sunday 24 July 2011

I suggest that we read the first half of Chapter 8, Lestrygonians, on Sunday 24th July and the second half in August. The venue is Muir Court in St Michaels’s Road, Headingley (halfway between The Skyrack and Cardigan Road).

We are still following Mr Bloom as he perambulates through Dublin and the theme of the chapter is food – Homer’s Lestrygonians are cannibals. Below are diagrams of the human digestive system and Bloom’s route from the newspaper office to the museum via Davy Byrne’s pub and lunch. Is Dublin eating Bloom?
