Ulysses Reading Group Meeting – Sunday 17 January 2016Posted: January 5, 2016
The next meeting of the Ulysses reading group is on January 17th. We meet in Muir Court at 7.30pm
We have reached episode 11, “Sirens”. In Homer’s Odyssey the sirens, by their seductive singing, tempt passing ships and their crews onto the rocks. In Joyce’s version the sirens are the blonde barmaids in the Ormond Hotel. The theme of the episode is music.
