A Three-Part Series on How to Read James Joyce with Mark Schenker
Saturdays, Sept. 28, Oct. 5 & 12 @3pm 
Mark Schenker of Yale College will present three lectures on how to appreciate Joyce's own method of detouring, using indirection to find direction, in the writer's presentation of everyday life. Over the course of the sessions, participants will gain an appreciation of how Joyce's symbolical realism enables readers to see both what is present and what is hidden in the author's texts. Mark J. Schenker has been at Yale College since 1990 and is currently a senior associate dean of the College and Dean of Academic Affairs. Each lecture will be followed by a Q&A session. This lecture is made possible with the support of the Literary Series in Memory of Amy Quigley.  More info & register
