Celebrating Like an Omniscientific Triestine

Des Gunning will spend Bloomsday ’21 at the annual Omniscientific Joyce event:

Between 14 and 18 June 2021, the city of Trieste and the Trieste Joyce School – Università degli studi di Trieste will play host to the 27th International James Joyce Symposium. Trieste, the city that Joyce dubbed ‘la mia seconda patria’, was his home for over a decade.

Alessandra Estreet Di Sante’s Personal, Private, and Catechetical Celebrations

(in the style of the Ithaca episode)

How will I celebrate Bloomsday?

Thinking back to when they celebrated in their home with friends. While children played nearby, indifferent to the celebration, we drank Guinness. Remembering the many readings of Joycian pieces. Remembering friends singing an old sad song. Remembering with enthusiasm and regret their Bloomsday in Dublin with gorgonzola and burgundy and Sandycove and Sandymount where they met a man, a woman, and a dog.
