Smithsonian Snapshot: Remembering James Joyce on Bloomsday

Smithsonian Institution

Echoing Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey, James Joyce’s novel Ulysses follows the exploits of Dubliner Leopold Bloom during the course of a single day, June 16, 1904. Not long after the book’s publication in 1922, June 16 was rechristened Bloomsday, and it’s still celebrated in Dublin and around the world with readings of Ulysses, academic conferences, musical and theatrical performances, costume contests, pub crawls and more.
