Re: Joyce, Episode 1. We Meet Buck Mulligan

Comments

Frank,

Thank you for doing this. I am enjoying it so very much. I love your phrase, "multi-tasking in prose". I had never thought of it that way before.

Oh what a wonderful thing, to hear your voice reading the Joyce and teaching in your magical way. I plan to dust off my much annotated ragged copy of Ulysses and revisit the adventure with you. THANK YOU, Frank, for this very special gift!

Wonderful! I have been carrying this book around for years. It's missing many pages yet I can't seem to finish it or part with it.

Joyce used his words on so many levels. Buck is a good word here.

How fun to meet Buck Mulligan again. I never get tired of reading Ulysses and this is a pleasure hearing you talk about it. I like the multitasking thought too, and I think this is first time I've of it being a novel of revenge, but it makes sense!

Frank, I heard you on the Diane R. show during my morning walk and when I got home, found your website. I also found my copy of Ulysses (Cliffs Notes still tucked inside.

I wondered if you knew of the Canadian writer Abraham Moses Klein, writer of The Second Scroll. I know that Klein was a huge Joyce fan and finally went mad as he tried to read every book Joyce had read. Like Ulysses, The Second Scroll is another literary puzzle, intended to be read on four analytical levels. Fun stuff. I'm enjoying your podcasts. Thank you for the effort you have made.

Frank, thank you for your introduction to trying to understand Joyce. The thickness of the book no longer intimidates me. -

Hello Frank,
Whilst driving along yesterday listening to the radio, I heard you discussing your massive undertaking in sharing Joyce's Ulysses with the rest of us.

Thank-you,

Marlene

Thank you so much for revivng in me, the desire to get through Ulysses.

I have tried,for years,to finish this work and have always failed.
Now i feel revived and happy that i can. It is quite nice to hear your marvelous voice make this story come to life.
Sincerely,
linda b
