Frank Delaney's Re: Joyce
Re: Joyce! On the international literary feast day of Bloomsday 2010, we launched a podcast to commemorate James Joyce's mighty novel, "Ulysses", the action of which took place in 18 hours of June 16, 1904. Every week you'll find a five-minute mini-essay from me designed to take you through the novel that's on every list of the greatest books ever written. And as Ulysses runs to some 375,000 words, and I mean to go through it sentence by sentence if I have to, in order to convey the full brilliance of this novel - and the enjoyment to be had from it - I'll be podcasting for some time to come! It's such an absorbing book, it's got diamond mines of references, it's so compassionate, so tender, so moving, so funny - and most of us never know that, because most of us have long been daunted by it. No need to be afraid any more - that is, if you make a habit of listening to these podcasts.

Stephen walks blindly in borrowed boots and trousers. Los demiurgos and William Blake.

Stephen closes his eyes and walks in the audible world. Nacheinander and Nebeneinander.

More thoughts on Aristotle, by way of Berkeley, Johnson, and Boswell.

Slightly deeper into chapter 3. Diaphanous reality, and a quick lesson on Aristotle.
