BLOOMSDAY 2021 EM FLORIANÓPOLIS
Roger Cummisky’s Bloomsday Celebration: A Graphic Moment from the Tower in Amber
“The James Joyce Tower interior, Sandycove, Co Dublin by Roger Cummiskey”
Roger invites you to his celebration:
“Join us for Bloomsday 2021 in Kilfenora, Co Clare. We will read episode 11, Sirens set in the Ormond Hotel between 11 h and 12:30 h.”
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.
[NOTE: 30 May 2021. I have no direct communication from The Trieste School, but there appears to have been a major change to the plans for OmniScientific Joyce. The link I have available is limited to Online Registration. You may find additional information at https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSdBA6e30CSjGM…/viewform ]

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.

Between now and Bloomsday, I’ll share a few lines daily from Fulvio Rogantin’s El Monalogo de Molly. During that time I’ll be attempting to read the masters’ prose in Triestine, the city where the novel Ulysses was born. I won’t subject readers to my translations since I know no Triestine dialect today and my Italian is limited to the New Jersey dialect which includes only a vocabulary of food and a fluency of insults.
This will become my submission to “Bloomsday ’21 Celebrations around the Globe,” timed to conclude on June 16th with Molly’s finale- “Si.”
