The greatest of all Christmas stories

The greatest of all Christmas stories, James Joyce‘s “The Dead,” the last story in “Dubliners,” was written in little over a month as Joyce forged the uncreated conscience of his race from an apartment in Trieste, Italy. John Huston’s 1988 film was made in roughly the same amount of time (in 33 days, actually ). Much of it, including all the interiors, was shot in a warehouse in Valencia, Calif.

End of 'Ulysses' copyright will breathe new life into Bloomsday


THE EXPIRY of the copyright on James Joyce’s Ulysses next 

year will liberate the text from the “notoriously restrictive” 

instincts of his grandson Stephen Joyce, .

The lifting of the copyright restrictions will  be celebrated by 

a fresh approach to aspects of Ulysses in Bruff’s 


Bloomsday celebration.

The Bloomsday festival  ths coming year sees 


Bloomsday (16th June) fall on a Saturday.

All best from here and good luck for next year,
Joel
