The Odyssey in Ulysses: A Comparative Conversation

City, Country

This is a past event


In celebration of the 100th anniversary of James Joyce’s <em>Ulysses</em>, join A.R.T. for conversation exploring the connections between this iconic work and the source material that fundamentally inspired it: Homer’s <em>Odyssey</em>. Classical studies scholar Joel Christensen (Brandeis University), Joyce scholar Douglas Mao (Johns Hopkins University), and noted playwright Kate Hamill (<strong><em>Sense and Sensibility</em></strong>) will juxtapose a scene from Hamill’s new adaptation of <strong><em>The Odyssey</em></strong>, currently in development at A.R.T., exploring how the contemporary work is in dialogue with both the original epic poem and the landmark modernist novel.
