Sketch of James Joyce

Incredible, really. A seemingly impenetrable account of a Dublin day. Often the narrative becomes unfollowable as the voice changes mid sentence. Sentences lose traditional grammar, becoming fragments. New compound nouns (scrotumtightening, laceflicker). Allusive, repetitive and subtle to the nth degree. Very, very funny.

The world assembled subjectively, through thought and its relationship to language.
