If the Irish programme did not insist on the Irish language I suppose I could call myself a nationalist. As it is, I am content to recognize myself an exile: and, prophetically, a repudiated one.

'' His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead. '' James Joyce, Dubliners

The real travesty in all this is James Joyce was not awarded a Nobel prize in literature.

James Joyce was a very talented poet and author who thought much too highly of himself and his work. He is not as well read today probably because many of his writings are long, difficult, and hard to delve into. Joyce is not one of my favorite writers but some of his shorter prose and poems deserve a dissection. Dubliners is definitely worth reading and Araby is one of his best short stories although slightly weird in my opinion.

James Joyce's poetry contains a beauty of a kind that is not to be met with elsewhere. These verses are an important contribution to the universal poem that poets contribute to, and yet it would seem that few people have read them. Take up and read, take up and read. They are written from the heart.
