James Joyce: A Portrait of the Artist as You and I *NEW*

James Joyce’s Ulysses is considered by many to be the greatest novel ever written. Sprawling and immersive, Ulysses is, in part, a follow-up to Joyce’s first novel, the semi-autobiographical A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, which is the focus of this class. Through the lens of this novel, we will discover what it can teach us about human consciousness, the inner growth of a writer, and the spiritual role the artist plays in society.
