I agree very much about the prose being Joycean. I felt that after only two or three pages, maybe after the first page. Some months after reading NLtS, I read ReJoyce. I had planned to reread NLtS with you guys, but I'm trying to reread Ulysses right now, and I feel I barely have time for that. I don't want to take a break in the middle of it.
I'm actually hoping to make a class on Ulysses using my New Bloomsday Book and ReJoyce. I'd also like to have Nabokov's lecture on Ulysses. I have it back in MS but not here. Could someone who has it possibly scan and email me the pages? I couldn't find it online. My girlfriend and I went to a lecture on Ulysses in November. It was pathetic, nothing I couldn't have gotten from the introduction to the annotated edition, and a lot of people paid to hear it. Some old Irishman cashing in on his accent.
