James Augustine Aloysius Joyce,1882-1941,foi um escritor irlandês..."A História é um pesadelo de que tento acordar"."Ninguém presta à sua geração maior serviço do que aquele que, seja pela sua arte, seja pela sua existência, lhe proporciona a dádiva de uma certeza"."Deus fez o alimento, o diabo acrescentou o tempero"."Tudo é caro de mais quando não é necessário"."Tudo é incerto neste mundo hediondo, mas não o amor de uma mãe"."Vença-me. Seduza-me. Fique comigo. Ah, faça- me sofrer"!
People will hardly believe if I say I got this book from a roadside,half-bald-half-literate amature book vendor for Rs. 40! It is an old book and the front cover is already blown away; the pages have turned yellow and they need some extra care while turning them. Well, these issues hardly matter. What matters is this: the book is cheap and it is readable.The introduction by Levin is informative but long. So I decided to skip it. I think I can appreciate it better after finishing the book.

I first read this when I was at university, but I'm rereading Dubliners> again now. BTW My edition, with this same ISBN and year of publication, says it's published by Triad/Panther, an imprint of Chatto, Bodley Head and Jonathan Cape Ltd.
The stream of consciousness stuff is really hard to read and I didn't enjoy it at all but some of the other bits are good, I particularly liked the dubliners and some of the poetry (although you do have to read it in an Irish accent otherwise it doesn't rhyme).
Hunter gave me this book so that I could read "The Dead" (I read Dubliners). The stories are beautiful. Character and landscape. An important predecessor to everything else I've read. I really enjoyed them, too.
