Unless you’re familiar with Dublin, it can be difficult to envision the places described in Ulysses. Joyce’s Dublin: A Walking Guide to Ulysses makes it much easier to trace the route of the novel’s main characters. It’s worth checking out from the Library, but I’ve scanned and cleaned up the main map for your viewing pleasure. Each place listed on the key corresponds to an episode. Click this link to view a PDF document of the map: Ulysses_Map. Expect it to take a few seconds to open. If it doesn’t open, click on the image below. After several seconds, it should open (enlarged) in a new window.

As I was hunting for some more Ulysses resources, I stumbled across an absolute gem: re: Joyce. On Bloomsday this year, Irish writer and former BBC broadcaster Frank Delaney launched a series of podcasts called re: Joyce. Each week, Delaney posts a podcast exploring the world of Ulysses. So far, there are eight. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the earlier podcasts. If you have time, start with the introduction. Note that episode numbers don’t correspond to episodes of Ulysses.
Find Gifford’s Ulysses Annotated a bit of a hassle to drag around? You’re not alone. I’m not exactly keen on schlepping this thing around with me either. Behold, Ulysses: a marked up version! Someone has actually taken the time to create an online text of Ulysses with annotations adapted from Don Gifford’s Ulysses Annotated. Just click on the link to the section you want to read, and a new window will appear. In it you’ll see the full text of Ulysses and links on certain letters. Move your mouse over the link, hovering over it, and you’ll then the short annotation will appear. Not every episode is annotated, however, so you’re out of luck for several of the later ones. A useful tool for the tech savvy!
