On June 16, 1904, Leopold Bloom embarked on an odyssey through the streets of Dublin. At least he did in the pages of James Joyce’s acclaimed modernist novel, Ulysses, which tells the fictional Bloom’s story in the stream-of-consciousness style that became the Irish writer’s trademark. While the volume eventually acquired acclaim, it had a rocky start. Ulysses was banned in the United Kingdom and even burned in the United States, until the 1930s. Today, fans of the now-iconic tome pay tribute all over the world to the text on Bloomsday — so named for the book’s protagonist. Just across the border, the Festival Bloomsday Montréal promises readings and celebrations of Irish-Montréal heritage.
