James Joyce in 90 MinutesDownloadable Audiobook - 2009 | Unabridged
From a young age, James Joyce showed a precocious and original intellect and a confidence in his own artistic destiny. He would indeed go on to transform the nature of modern literature, employing a unique stream-of-consciousness technique rich in symbolism and wordplay. Through his art, the Dublin native sought to reveal the radiance and meaning that lurks in the everyday world-"the soul of the commonest object"-evoking a heightened sense of consciousness within the grit of common life. James Joyce in 90 Minutes offers a concise, expert account of Joyce's life and ideas and explains their influence on literature and on man's struggle to understand his place in the world. The book also includes a list of Joyce's chief works, a chronology of his life and times, and recommended reading for those who wish to delve deeper.
