Happy Bloomsday to all Dubliners!
Today, we celebrate Thursday, June 16, 1904, a day immortalised in James Joyce's Ulysses, published in 1922. Leopold Bloom's life and thoughts are explored in depth today, so if you're curious about the wide range of events happening in the city, you can check out the Bloomsday Festival website at http://www.bloomsdayfestival.ie. There, you'll find activities and festivities to help you fully embrace the spirit of this literary celebration.
Along with other well-known works like Dubliners and Finnegans Wake, Joyce's ground-breaking novel Ulysses exemplifies his command of language and capacity to dive deeply into the complexities of human experience.
