Joyce's Century and Ours

February 1982
National Review;2/19/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 3, p157
This article focuses on the life and works of poet James Joyce in Dublin, Ireland. Born a century ago, the poet was a multi talented person. He was a rare and genuine specimen of a type that most artists and intellectuals profess to admire. His wife, his friends and a passionate devotion to his work were his life. He loved Dublin and lived nowhere. There are times, despite two hundred years of romantic propaganda, when the ordinary man want more from their artists. They want the geniuses to be one of them and occupy a place in society. The people dont want the poets to be servile or even always affirmative, but reflective and normal.
