An Ulysses a Day
“I tried to read Ulysses a couple times in the past few years, but I couldn’t ever find the momentum I needed to get through. I read Dubliners and A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man hoping to build up some momentum I could carry over. It didn’t work. I needed help. I realized one day that almost no one is better at plodding along mindlessly than a computer. Mindless plodding is nearly as good as momentum. I resolved to build this site, but then for a while I didn’t.” And then, he did for the 100th anniversary of the day that Ulysses takes place. I think it’s a right nifty idea and it even has an rss feed to get at it that way. Since the anniversary date was 16JUN I’m about 19 pages behind, so I’ll get right to it.
