I'll Make a Ghost of Him: Joyce Haunted by Shakespeare

Of all Joyce's predecessors, Shakespeare was the greatest and most complicated, serving as an artistic father, guide and literary ideal. In his masterpiece "Ulysses," James Joyce quotes from and refers to Shakespeare, but also paraphrases and emulates him, creating a vibrant relationship between one age of creativity and another. This unique exhibition will place pages from Joyce's manuscript side-by-side with the plays and poems that inspired it.
