These are the closing pages of Ulysses Seen | Telemachus the first episode from Robert Berry’s remarkable online graphic novel of Joyce’s Ulysses.
I’m sharing this because I thought of James Joyce last week when “the snow was general over Ireland,” and now it is his birthday. I love The Dubliners and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man but need to mention, because I was raised Catholic and my mother was Irish, not that she approved of Joyce, that I have tried to read Ulysses as frequently as I have tried to quit smoking, with the same unfortunate result. My paperback Vintage Giant edition of said book, purchased from my university bookstore in 1973, is now dog-eared and broken-backed, but never once read cover to cover. Eish.
I am absolutely loving the graphic novel.
