James Joyce’s Ulysses – which follows the modern-day Odysseus, Leopold Bloom, round Dublin for a day – is set on 16 June 1904. This date is celebrated across the world as ‘Bloomsday’. On its 110th anniversary, Dr Dan Mulhall, Irish Ambassador to Britain, will lecture on Joyce and Ulysses, Joyce’s great book about ordering the chaos of a modern day as myth and history.
