The Progression of an Artist as a Young Man: The Musicality of "Sirens"
Over the span of the seven years it took Joyce to write Ulysses, he notably grew as an artist. Joyce found inspiration in the arts, via paintings, poetry, classical music, and other pop cultural influences of the time.
This exhibit details a few of the influences that shaped Joyce's own understanding of his writing. Specifically, this exhibit focuses on the influences that inspired Joyce to modify "Sirens" from a difficult narrative cacophony to a conglomeration of words read to be experienced as music.
