AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Walking up to Frances Devlin-Glass’s front door, there’s the smell of wet earth and the rot of autumn leaves. My breath is visible in the cold morning air and the smell is not unpleasant. When Devlin-Glass opens the door and says hello, I’m surprised she has an Australian accent. I’d expected her to be Irish. She’s a Joycean who has taught James Joyce in Melbourne universities since 1976. She is also the director of Bloomsday in Melbourne, a group of Joyce enthusiasts who stage theatrical adaptations of his work. Their new play Getting Up James Joyce’s Nose, which is to be performed in the Melba Spiegeltent in Collingwood in June, is a reworking of Ulysses and takes an odoriferous journey through the novel.'
