Daily Question – 6

Today’s question comes to you from Gopal Kidao, one of the founding members of the QFI, Chennai.

To celebrate which annual occasion was this map published?

The event was Bloomsday, observed annually on 16th June in Dublin and elsewhere to celebrate the life of James Joyce and relive the events in his novel ‘Ulysses’, all of which took place on the same day in Dublin in 1904. The name derives from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses.

Points only to those who mentioned Bloomsday – Ganesh, BoFi, nitish, Shubhendu Saha, CR, Prasanna, Rohan, Thejaswi Udupa, Guneet, vijaysarathy, Manish Mani, The Clueless Anon, Ajay Parasuraman, Chris Pearson, Quizling, Srinivasan Rajagopal, anon-on-narkotix, zizzyphus and Ashwin. The rest of you are sentenced to 200 hours of reading James Joyce.

  1. Map was created for the hundredth anniversary of the happenings in James Joyce’s Ullysses .
    And no, have not attempted to read the book.

  2. Bloomsday,birthday of James Joyce,author of the greatest unread books like Ulysses,Finnegan’s Wake.

  3. Stephen Dedalus’ and Leopold Bloom’s day long ‘odyssey’ through Dublin in James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’?

  4. This is a dedic to James Joyce i guess on his birthday. This is a map of Ulysses(based on lines of map of the Tube) in the work The Wanderings of Stephen and Leopold .

  5. The underground style map is the graphic representation of James Joyce Ulysses.

  6. The map shows places during Ulysses’ Odyssey. I am gonna go with a Dublin tube-map commemorating Bloomsday (today- June 16th).. Well timed, Sir!!
