James Joyce's Dublin: The Ulysses Tour

Loading...
Joyce's famous boast that, if Dublin one day suddenly disappeared from the earth, it could be reconstructed out of his book has been quoted so often that it has taken on the force of a truism. With the passing of a century, we can separate Joyce's Dublin from the present entity and view it in perspective more easily than previous Joyceans, especially as the Dublin that Joyce knew has largely and gradually disappeared. This film takes viewers on a tour through the remnants of Joyce's youth that still exist in modern-day Dublin.
