Ok I am now on page 43 and the number of scene changes Joyce did is numerous. I am an engineer and the amount of vocabulary in this book is mind boggling. Do REAL people use these words?
Ineluctable modality of the visible: at least that if no more, thought through my eyes. – p. 37
What in the world does that mean? Is it really a sentence? My left brain is shut off and the right is down right upset I am using it. Webster and I are on very close terms these days and not to forget my other love, Google. Which brings me to the point of my post today – not really but I can jump around just like James Joyce if I want to (wait or should I say my stream of conscientious)- James Joyce, himself. I was interested in what kind of man would write a bizarre book like this. In comes my other new friend, Wikipedia.
Boy was this man strange – I found out that Stephen is James Joyce – Is this an autobiography? If so, I don’t think I really wanted to know what was in James’ head – right or left side of the brain! What a very bizarre life he led. Can’t wait to hear what Heather has to say, maybe this makes more sense to her!
Regardless I am here for the journey and, Hey!, I may learn a few new words along the way. Back to reading!
