Bloomsday

On the 16th of June –

it is Bloomsday, the day in 1904 that the entire (and that means loooong) novel Ulysses is devoted to describing. The 16th of June is celebrated anually in Dublin under the title Bloomsday.
Our Europeana partner askaboutireland.ie has a very nice virtual exhibition on ‘Ireland in 1904‘, using scenes from the novel to illustrate aspects of daily life in Dublin at that time.

Here is a beautiful and well-scanned English language edition of the novel, in the collection of the Portuguese Casa Fernando Pessoa:

Note: Because there is no thumbnail, I cannot use embed for this object – no worries, this has already been added to my wishlist for “embed object 2.0”.
