James Joyce consecrated the bread of everyday life into art.
Joyce elevated the ordinary to the mythic, and the mythic to the ordinary.
He  devised Ulysses so that each episode would have its own symbols, its own style, and its own set of correspondences to the ancient Greek epic, The Odyssey, by Homer.

 

05-bloomsdayUlysses has attracted controversy and fascination, and the book is considered to be one of the most important works of the twentieth century.
Joyce fans worldwide now celebrate 16 June as Bloomsday.

 

An ILLUSTRATED Talk- Dr. Séamus CANNON teaches a very popular course, “Reading ULYSSES, “ at Blackrock Education Centre. He is the Vice Chair of the Friends of Joyce Tower Society.

Thurs 6 Oct 2016-HARVEST of the Seasons – Joseph Campbell & the Power of Myth

1-jc-pom-4-thumb-2As our ancestors turned from hunting to planting,  did their stories about life’s mysteries change too?   Joseph Campbell suggests that the  seed,  instead of the animal, became the symbol of life, death and resurrection. The plant died, was buried, and its seed born again.
Are there mythic references to the importance of Agriculture in early Irish society?

                        Illustrated Talk,  film clips,discussion-

delphi-thumbBill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell discuss special places…Delphi, Machu Picchu, Stonehenge, Jerusalem…. But some early societies saw the whole earth as a sacred place ….”It was a geography not of city and nation-states, but of sacred places, the realm of the mythic imagination.

lcrew1-thumbJoseph Campbell  studied the relationship of myth to landscape, but he often reminded his students, “You don’t have to go on a pilgrimage to find your own sacred place, tnourish  your creative imagination.

                        Walking in an ancient land...a portal to the mythic mind?

uisneach-thumbIreland too has a mythic geographyat Newgrange, Tara, Loughcrew, Carrowkeel, Uisneach, Croagh Patrick, and elsewhere…ritual landscapes,  created more than 5000 years ago, formed the foundation of subsequent cultural landscapes.

map-thumb

Landscapes of memory,  an invisible web….
The culture that created Irish myths is strongly rooted in the landscape … connected to stories,  marked by rivers, plains and high places .

 

lcrew2-thumbHarvest of the Seasons – Space, Place, and the  Creative Life
Can we invoke and evoke Ireland?   and also find inspiration in the legacy of Joseph Campbell… from the way of art,   to the artist’s way..

                            Exploring the Power of Myth past & present – Thurs 06 October
The Power of Myth was one of the most popular TV series of American public television, and continues to inspire audiences and creative artists worldwide.  FB Thumb 3In the fourth episode, Moyers and  Campbell discuss the role of sacrifice in myth — and the need for all of us to find our sacred places in today’s fast-paced world.  https://player.vimeo.com/video/62379213“>CLIP –
Where can heroism can be witnessed in modern society?
