I think he means that it's about the people more (who are relateable to anyone) which is obviously true but that doesn't mean the Boston references wouldn't be enjoyable to someone who would get them without the internet.

its more about the people I find. You can find people like that anywhere which makes the book easy to relate to regardless of location

>tfw visiting my relatives in Ireland
>uncle is an armchair philosopher (he's a high school teacher lel)
>literally can not walk past a place that featured in Ulysses without him mentioning it
>has to constantly make sure everyone knows he's read Ulysses
Dublin has lots of nice pubs and very friendly people, though. Would recommend spending a few days there if you're visiting the British Isles.

Y'all stupid, of all the international trips I've taken the one I took to Ireland was my favorite. Maybe learn to appreciate a wider range of things that pubs yeah?

I read an account of someone who discussed the book with an employee at the drug treatment facility on which Ennet House is based, and the employee had no idea about the book or any thoughts about it. So I'm ahead of at least that Bostonian.

Has anyone reading this ever celebrated Bloomsday in Dublin?

>>7669177
I was in Dublin on bloomsday but didn't really participate per se, it didn't seem like there was a ton going and as if it was mostly confined to one area
