  •  Jung had that poetic line about Joyce's deep water (3+ / 0-)

    "But you're swimming, and she's drowning".

    As for your not getting half of what's there, that's just how Joyce intended it. But you know these things already.

    Gifford's book was my prof's favorite too. I've got his guide for Dubliners & Portrait.

    I'd like to read Ulysses three more times. (My TBR list, like many of us here, is ridiculous.) 1st, without a net, just for the fun of it. 2nd, after re-reading  Dubliners & Portrait. And 3rd, with Gifford in hand. Well, we'll see.
