Description


""Have Read Little and Understood Less."" Such is the average appreciation for James Joyce. This book could be your guidebook to his genius - if you dare. Joyce wrote with a huge vocabulary, poured into a stream-of-consciousness approach through his writing. Most readers are left at the curb from this. Because they don't know how to disengage their mind to fly beyond the prison of their own world, to enter his. To read this classic is to get a primer on how to read its sequel, Ulysses. We meet this semi-biographical Stephen Daedalus and learn how his mind works. Joyce isn't linear. He doesn't stick to hard-core plot lines. There is no adventure cliffhangers here. Instead, you find themes ebbing and flowing like the intersection of waves, wind, trees, and dust - all flowing through the story. If you are ready, or even if you aren't, this book stands ready to change your life. Scroll back up and get your copy now.
