First Meeting Highlight

At our June 16 meeting, we’ll have the honor of hosting Professor Christine Froula from Northwestern.  Professor Froula teaches interdisciplinary modernism, nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature and theory, feminist and gender theory, contemporary women artists, and the Western European literary tradition.  She’ll be our authoritative voice on Joyce.

For anyone who hasn’t yet picked up a copy of Ulysses, Professor Froula recommends the Modern Library edition.  If you wish to supplement your reading, she also recommends Don Gifford’s Ulysses Annotated as an indispensable guide.  Finally, if you’re ambitious, you may want to take another look at Homer’s Odyssey and Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

I’ll personally be using the Gifford text as I read.  The library has a couple copies, one of which is a reference copy and therefore available all the time.  Remember that these are just suggestions!
