By Alfred, Lord Tennyson. It little profits that an idle king,. By this still hearth, among these barren crags,. That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me. Greatly, have suffer'd greatly, both with those. That loved me, and alone, on shore, and when. And manners, climates, councils, governments,.
What you NEED to know about James Joyce, Ulysses and Bloomsday | jasirywanyse.cf
Gleams that untravell'd world whose margin fades. As tho' to breathe were life! Life piled on life. For some three suns to store and hoard myself,. This is my son, mine own Telemachus,. There lies the port; the vessel puffs her sail:. There gloom the dark, broad seas. My mariners,. Souls that have toil'd, and wrought, and thought with me—. Free hearts, free foreheads—you and I are old;. Death closes all: but something ere the end,. The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs: the deep. Moans round with many voices. The first one is pretty easy: the anti-intellectual, knee-jerk reaction to erudition, show-off or otherwise.
We're all familiar with the prejudice that horse sense is better than intellect. And it's true that "Ulysses" is a clearinghouse of historical facts, religious and philosophical ephemera, and clever-boots witticisms. The novel is a perfect mix of highbrow and lowbrow, of poetry and patter, the very same flavour we love in our Shakespeare, who also happens to permeate much of "Ulysses". Both Shakespeare and Joyce are industrial-grade humanists who devote every page to the study and celebration of us—smart, dumb, middling, fair, no matter.
The fear that we are becoming too distracted for big books has consumed the last decade. But what does digital have to do with novels, aside from making them more accessible? Ulysses, more than any novel, was made for the digital age. In the past decade, various projects have already begun to hyperlink the book with nifty annotations and commentary in an entertaining format to make it even easier to enjoy—in bite-sized portions—Joyce's feast of words.
Are we really too busy for one of history's great psychological novels? Many of those who scoff at the idea of reading Ulysses will tell you in the next breath of finishing the 4,odd pages of George R. Let's not kid ourselves: we have the time. Find some room in your summer reading for "Ulysses" or those other loose, baggy monsters it spawned, like "Gravity's Rainbow" or "Infinite Jest". It's definitely a better read.
