Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

James Joyce (1882-1941) is undoubtedly one of the masters of modern literature. His novel Ulysses is arguably the most significant and most influential piece of literature written in this century: 'the novel to end all novels.' Yet, Joyce has the reputation of being difficult, hermetic, arcane.
Nevertheless, as Joyce himself said, "if 'Ulysses' isn’t fit to read, life isn’t fit to live." And Bloomsday - June 16, the day on which the story of Leopold Bloom, Molly Bloom, and Stephen Dedalus (a thinly disguised portrait of the artist as a young man) takes place - is fast becoming a feast-day in the literary calendar and part and parcel of the global marketing of Irishness.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Regular attendance, active participation in class, PowerPoint presentation, research paper (20-25 pp.), final (written) test.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

It is the aim of this course to make Joyce accessible and to explore the richness and originality of his work by an approach, which favours small, but increasingly steady steps (the rough guide or ‘Joyce for Dummies’ approach) -- from the early short stories ("Dubliners") to the more or less (still) conventional bildungsroman ("A Portrait of the Artist a Young Man") to "Ulysses" and to the highly experimental "Finnegans Wake".
As part of this cautious and selective approach it will also be necessary to consider Joyce’s reception in popular culture and to relate his work to the contexts of Irish life and Irish culture of the early 20th century.
