really liked it
bookshelves: british-literature
Read in March, 2012

I gave up on James Joyce after "A Portrait of an Artist as a young man" but I decided to give him a second try after I heard Joseph Campbell say he was one of his favorite authors. Knowing this I felt determined to extract something from this short story. Its overall mood was melancholy mixed with frustration of death but more with the passionate-less loveless life.
