You know that the work JJ had planned to write after the Wake was going to be about the sea.

Seems interesting. May consider that, after coming back from France, where I will wade into whatever is le livre du jour, currently.

Not about Ulysses, admittedly, but for fellow lovers of the master, here is an interesting page which contains a recording of Joyce himself reading from the Anna Livia Plurabelle section of the Wake. It also has an interesting account of the making of the recording by Sylvia Beach. If you haven't heard this, you must. What music in his voice.

(for those of you that can't see it, it's that statue of ALP)

I never got far with Ulysses, but I do enjoy busting out Finnegans Wake, opening it up to a random page and reading till I can't take it anymore! :dance:

edit: here's a better picture:

I remember finding that recording a couple years ago when I got into JJ, so beautiful. I'd lost the link tho, so thanks for the find! :cheers:

I think he's still on the first chapter after just over a year :)

I was talking about Joyce earlier with someone and I remembered I hadn't listened to this podcast in a while and went to the site thinking there'd be a good backlog by now. I found out that Frank, unfortunately, died in February. He had made it to, page 192, chapter 10, after seven years, and 368 episodes. Little over halfway.

That truly is musical! How fascinating!

Confused me for a few minutes, though, because the title and all throughout the account of the recording it says its from Ulysses. :scratch:

Yes, say what you will about the impenetrable structure, indecipherable plot or the nonstop punning, Finnegans Wake was clearly designed to be read aloud. If only he'd recorded the whole thing I doubt I'd need any other sound for bedtime.

I actually prefer the noisier transfer, his voice sounds more natural and I don't really mind the record noise -- certainly not compared to all the artifacts of the cleanup.
