James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (February 2, 1882-January13, 1941)

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce, born 2 February 1882 Rathgar (near Dublin) Ireland, died 13 January 1941 (from a perforated ulcer). Were it not for James Joyce, whose wordsaladry egged-on my own grammaticide, my life would ‘not be worth living’, as Nietzsche so eloquently put it. Today I will read Joyce’s Giacomo Joyce and revel in the amniocentesis of his words.

Joyce is the Lord. Without him , as I have said, english literature would be a symbol of collective neurosis.
