Finnegans Wake reading group
The Moore Institute Seminar Room
Date & Time
10th October, 2013 @ 13:00:00
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.
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/ )
