    Ellmann's Biography

    If you're serious about your love of Joyce, then Richard Ellmann's "James Joyce" is a must read. Originally published in 1959 by Oxford University, it was put out in a new revised and updated edition in 1982 - which I bought. Ellmann, an American, was Goldsmiths Professor of...

    Ulysses, Cover To Cover

    I once had the ultimate joy of participating in a few non-stop readings of Ulysses cover to cover on June 16th, Bloomsday in a Denver brew pub drinking stout mixed with cider. I highly recommend this to any loves of Joyce fans out there. If you can't find one, start your own...

    Bloom's Day

    In the winter of 2003 I knew that I was going to have to spend about two months in Ireland researching my thesis for one of my bachelors degrees (sadly I couldn't carry it over to both and spend 4 months there). I decided then to schedule the entire thing so I could be there for...

    Words and Exile

    Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears, like the word gnomon in the Euclid and the word simony in the Catechism. But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It...

    Vastly Important To Me

    I learned while young that one of the key ways to learn to write well is to read good writers. Joyce remains one of my short list of favourite writers, and of course he's on most people's list of great writers. So for a man of my type, reading him is both compulsory and...

    "Three Quarks For Muster Mark!"

    "I Love James Joyce"?  Mayhaps a bit too strong.  I'm not sure that anyone from outside the UK can ever comprehend his work well enough to love it, bejeweled as it is with bastardized spellings of Dublin street cant.  I find that on subvocalizing it...

    Third Time Around

    This is my third serious attempt to read Ulysses. I've never been able to get through the whole book.  It's one of the pleasures I want to experience before I'm either too old or too dead.

    I Read and Really Liked Ulysses . . .

    . . . nearly 40 years after having read enough of each chapter to pass a college course.  Admittedly, "The Annotated . . ."--not available back in 1968 or so--was an immense help.   And a series of lectures about it on CD borrowed from the Salt Lake City...

    Why??

    Since I was in my 20's, I've picked up James Joyce and started to read. I've never made it past 30 pages. Months (or years) later - I try again. Sometimes the same book sometimes another title. Today, I googled James Joyce rooms or boards and found this group. I am not a...

    Dubliners

    Next on my list is Dubliners. Only read Portrait so far. But I need someone to tell me the deeper meanings as I go along. I like to know everything, not just the story. So I'm saving it for when I have more time to delve deeper. Anyway, I love Joyce. He = one...

    Turned My Eyes to the Grey Gleaming River

    Sometimes the fewest words say the absolute most. The writing is beyond simple comprehension. Marevlous and full. I especially love the artists of the 30's & 40's who had attempted portraits of James Joyce only to recoil into the dark shadows of the room in utter confusion...
