Countdown to Bloomsday 2012: A 130th Birthday Reading

Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silvery Tay

As we approach Bloomsday, June 16, I will be trawling the internet for daily gobbets of Joycean interest, culminating in a series of podcasts to begin on the glorious day itself. Each segment features Frank Delaney taking a short passage from Ulysses and exploring its multitude of references with insight, eloquence, passion, vast expertise—and a good dose of fun. Since they are broadcast weekly, and began on Bloomsday 2010, I will post one a day until we’re caught up.

turbidus is also regularly posting clips during the countdown. While we may sometimes duplicate, you’re quite likely to find material there that I haven’t posted, and vice versa.

February 2, 2012, was Joyce’s 130th birthday. Here’s Frank Delaney giving a reading in his honour in Madison Square Park, New York City.
