Joyce & the Irish Literary Revival

Joyce & the Irish Literary Revival

from 10.00

James Joyce grew up in a Dublin where politics, art and culture were intrinsic parts of everyday life and conversation. Nationalism was on the rise and, in the world of literature, artists were engaging with ideas of Irish identity and experience in what was known as the Irish Literary Revival. Joyce was shaped by this environment, but he had a complex relationship with his contemporaries and his nation. Join us on a tour that explores Joyce’s debt to major Revivalist figures such as W.B. Yeats, his rejection of contemporary artistic trends, his critical approach to the city and his eventual decision to leave Ireland and spend most of is life in Continental Europe, taking in along the way such iconic and culturally important landmarks as the GPO, the Abbey Theatre and the National Library.
