Happy Bloomsday!

Monday, June 16th, marks the hundred-and-fourth anniversary of Bloomsday, the date on which the events in James Joyce's Ulysses take place. The customary celebrations surrounding Leopold Bloom's famous walk through Dublin take place on Monday: public readings and festivals in cities around the world, including Dublin, New York, Berlin, Paris, St. Petersburg, and Melbourne. In Budapest last year, two hundred or so academics convened a Joyce symposium -- the twentieth to be held on Bloomsday.

Happy Bloomsday!
