James Joyce was born on 2 February 1882. Although he was born too early to grace the pages of GQ…
…he went on to have quite the literary career. You may have heard of him?
QUOTE: “A man’s errors are his portals of discovery.”
SOME WORKS: Chamber Music; Dubliners; A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man; Ulysses; Finnegan’s Wake.
Very handsome indeed. Wouldn’t mind having him hang around my neck 🙂
James Joyce managed to occupy a lot of my time my senior year of college. We read Ulysses along with the prerequisite reading of Homer’s Odyssey and Portrait of the Artist as a young man — and that was just a small part of the reading for the class. Stream of consciousness writing is very difficult to read, but now at least I can say I read it.
I love Joyce. I’ve read all of his works. Stream of consciousness is definitely not for everyone, but I really enjoy it when it is done well. 🙂
