Recorded by Mr. Heffernan remotely at his teaching office.

James Heffernan, Professor Emeritus of English at Dartmouth College, has lectured extensively on James Joyce, particularly Ulysses, which he has covered in 24 lectures for the Teaching Company. His many articles include a close study of Molly’s monologue, and his books include studies of English Romantic poetry and landscape painting, interart relations, “ekphrastic” poetry from Homer to John Ashbery, and—most recently– Hospitality and Treachery in Western Literature, published by Yale in 2014. He is now nearing completion of a book on politics and literature at the dawn of World War II.

Bloomsday is a commemoration and celebration of the life of the Irish writer James Joyce during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set on 16 June 1904) are relived. It is observed annually on 16 June in Dublin and many cities around the world.
