James Joyce & Jonathan Swift: Irish Literary Giants
(Full Frame, Dolby, 2PC)
The works and the worlds of two of the giants of Irish literature, Jonathan Swift & James Joyce, are explored. Jonathan Swift & Gulliver's Travels: With politics, religion, and the monarchy numbering amongst his targets, Swift created a masterpiece that is both a parody of the 'travelers' tales' genre and a scathing satire on human nature. James Joyce's Dublin - the Ulysses Tour: Robert Nicholson, curator of the James Joyce Museum, Sandycove, guides US through Joyce's world, with great enthusiasm and an irreverent sensibility that Joyce would surely have relished.
