That's really cool. But Alex Itin perhaps should have known that it's not Ulysses (as his caption heading announces; not to mention the 'You Cities' pun).I wonder if that FW text is the original - JJ changes and reverses a few words but I haven't got my copy with me to check.I love JJ's voice. So musical. His horrendous sight gives the clue that his works are as much about their sound as they are about the words.Formidable Ms.!
That's fabulous. Like watching jazz...
Alex Itin comments at the link:I think the recording is the only, or one of very few recordings of Joyce reading - it's not an attempt to tell the story of Ulysees, but more to try and animate in a stream of consciousness style It's great isn't it.I watched it about half a dozen times before I sought the text just to have a look at. But I don't think the jazz needs the lyrics.
