I was supposed to read Ulysses, but that didn't really happen.

I still have a lot to read in that book, but all of the above is what I had to read for class (with the exception of Stevie Smith, I read her on my own and loved it). Basically this gave me a newfound love for poetry. I really enjoyed reading Yeats and Smith, and want to get my hands on more of their stuff. 'The Dead' by Joyce is in this book and I would like to read that when I have time.

I'd like more time to go through it, but overall, it has some good selections in there.
