Remember that it's all about....
...the research, the mapping, the quotations—the fun parts. We've got amazing support: Frank Delaney, "the most eloquent man in the world," will read quotations and explanations. Senator David Norris presents (performs actually!) a whole ten minutes from the book. All this, arranged in six chapters from "Ulysses," containing 100+ locations across Dublin.
We want everyone to have a taste of the brilliance that is Joyce. With Professor Nugent's guidance, we've made each Point of Interest colorful, quirky, and crammed full of fascinating facts.
Totally new to Joyce? Terrified of "Ulysses"? We all were at some point! Try starting with our friendly "Lestrygonians" route or pick out some spots from the "Dubliners" short-story map. And after a few hours' stroll, unwind with our other innovation: "Joyce Pubs." We've selected the 15 most lively taverns from Joyce's works, added quotes and contemporary posters—even rated them for authenticity!
We've loads of contemporary photographs that the fine people at the National Photographic Archive in Ireland are lending us. Have a look below. And check out some of the dozens of contemporary cartoons and newspaper clippings we've dug up for you.
As you can see, we've put all our (ahem...) creative genius to work on the interface. Below are some mock-ups of the home and menu pages as we imagine them. We're ready to send it off to the developers....
...of our newest incentives—signed pages from Rob Berry's Ulysses "Seen" and original sketches from his "Dubliners" series!
It's modeled after the handwriting of James Joyce himself!
Yes--absolutely! And you can zoom it up X 2 to fill the screen!
Yes, absolutely. How soon? As soon as we conceivably can. i.e. once we get the dollars, we'll get to it.
We're aiming for June 14--two days before Bloomsday. And it'll happen in the James Joyce Centre on North Great George's Street.
Have you ever been told a secret, so profound, so impactful, so life-changing, that it left you brimming with excitement to share it with the world? That's how we feel.
James Joyce's Ulysses is widely considered to be the most important novel of the 20th century and for some reason finds itself perpetually lost amongst the ranks of the more contemporary (boring) classics and hollow and self assuring promises to read it "eventually".
For the Joyceans; JoyceWays is a beautiful reminder of the passion, creativity and wit you discovered the first time you read James Joyce.
For the non-Joyceans it is an exciting and adventurous introduction into one of the greatest novels ever written, or at the very least, a break from Angry Birds.
It is time to bring Ulysses out of the shadows and into your hands.
We've changed the name from JoyceWalk to JoyceWays to avoid confusion with another project that uses the name "Joyce" and the word "walks." So let's spread the word and keep moving forward! Thanks for your fabulous continued support!
