Script & Schedule

The Script

For the purposes of this Bloomsday experiment, Ulysses is herewith divided into 96 more-or-less equal segments, per the scheme below. Since the book as printed lacks any sort of section headings (beyond I, II, III), and there are manymany different editions in print (thus rendering page designations useless), we are forced to improvise. The 96 segments listed below largely begin & end with the “natural” divisions in the book: page breaks, line spaces, *’s, or headlines. (All these devices fail us in the final section inside Molly Bloom’s head. For that, we provide more complex directions.) As an approximate guide to the location of segments in the book, page ranges are provided from the Vintage Books edition (1966), which is 783 pages long.

Members of The Brave Cast are asked to pick their favorite segment (or segments), recompose it into a sequence of 4-6 tweets, and send the text to sc11ysses@yahoo.com. Please indicate the number of the segment and your Twitter name so we can properly credit authorship of the “Bloomsday Burst” as it is broadcast on Bloomsday.

The Schedule

The performance schedule is precise & simple. This is a 24-hour experiment that begins, in concert with the dawning of the day on 16 June 1904, at 8 o’clock in the morning, Dublin Time (3 a.m. Eastern in the United States), using the convention noted by the James Joyce Center of Dublintown. Each of the 96 segments begins on the quarter hour and ends on the next quarter hour.

  9. if you’re still looking for help, let me know. my essay on “all things considered” on Bloomsday 2001 led to “No-Man’s Lands,” an entire Odyssey/Ulysses-based project. Hope for all good things for yours!
