Finnegan's Wake reading group
The Moore Instittue Seminar Room
Date & Time
26th September, 2013 @ 13:00:00
The NUI, Galway Finnegans Wake reading group is starting up again this September.
Our first meeting will be 1-2pm in the Moore Institute Seminar Room, Thursday 26th September.
If you like gossiping, poetry, languages, puns, puzzles, jokes, double entendres or even avant-garde tomes, you might like Finnegans Wake. Despite its scurrilous critical reputation, James Joyce's final work is not as difficult as it would first appear and, when read as part of a group, can be a hugely rewarding experience. It is our hope to read the text episodically, playing close attention to the rhythm and musicality of the piece; we aim to stress the looseness of the text without resort to lucidity.
No prior experience of Joyce is necessary and the meetings will be very informal so everyone is very welcome.
Join us on the 26th or consider joining our Facebook group to keep abreast of news, dates and any strange Joycean ephemera that we find. ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/359211964211176/ )
