Bloomsday countdown: Mashup

Bloomsday countdown: Ulysses’ Gaze

A legacy: Homer, Joyce, Angelopoulos.

Each re-visioning adds to my experience of its predecessors: I hope you’ll agree. Today, I will read a section of Joyce’s Ulysses accompanied by Karaindrou’s haunting music.

“A tribute to the amazing film from Theo Angelopoulos, with Harvey Keitel, Maia Morgenstern and Erland Josephson. A truly masterpiece. Music from the film´s soundtrack, composed by Eleni Karaindrou.”
