“Open Secrets: Ulysses at 100,” presented by the Fund for Irish Studies at Princeton University
Fintan O'Toole, Princeton University
Fri, 2/11 · 4:30 pm—6:00 pm · Zoom
The Fund for Irish Studies and the Lewis Center for the Arts
Fintan O’Toole, Princeton University’s Visiting Leonard L. Milberg ’53 Professor in Irish Letters, delivers the annual Robert Fagles Memorial Lecture on “Open Secrets: Ulysses at 100″ as part of the 2021-22 Fund for Irish Studies lecture series. James Joyce’s revolutionary novel Ulysses was published 100 years ago in February 1922. In his lecture, O’Toole asks why the book still matters today. It is, he suggests, one of the best explorations we have of the way the local is also universal; of the fluidity of identity; of the fusion of body and mind; and of the possibility of living beyond tragedy. Introduced by Paul Muldoon.
This event is free and open to the public, with Zoom registration required in advance.
