    Here @ Eyesonff, we have a commitment to literature. Anything as long as we don't have to go outside & interact w/ other people.

    For me, it has to be A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The themes of alienation from conservative religion and uncertainty about the future really resonated with me at the time I first read it.

    Second has to be Ullyses of course, just for Molly Bloom's marvellous, forthright, raw and life-affirming soliloquy at the end. It also inspired one of my favourite Kate Bush songs - The Sensual World - as well.

    Wow, I think this is the first poll to ever get just one vote.

    Maybe no-one else has read James Joyce? I never thought there would be many on here who had, to be honest.

    I think I might have read something of his while in school, but I forget what it was. It was likely just part of a story in a collection. I have the book somewhere, I'll have to see what it was.

    I've got a few books where I've yet to get to them, but none are Joyce's. I would like to read Ulysses, just so I could say I did.
