Joyce’s Ulysses

This mornoing you’ve experienced the Stream of Consciousness.¬†Hope you had some fun ūüėČ ¬†Now you can listen to Molly Bloom’s last 50 lines of her famous Ulysses¬†monologue.¬†Angeline Ball in her IFTA Award winning role as Molly Bloom from the film Bloom.

E ora una perla dal programma Totem di Alessandro Baricco. Stefania Rocca interpreta¬†il¬†monologo di Molly Bloom, di cui riesce ad esaltare la musicalit√† (e la passione) con inserti del testo in lingua originale e la sottolineatura ritmica dell’orchestra di scena. Nella preparazione si intuisce la regia di Baricco.

I’d like to end this post on Joyce with Stephen Fry’s short¬†One Minute Book Review Video of the novel Ulysses.¬†“I’ll tell you the book I have chosen as my favourite book. And it may make some people’s heart sink, because it is associated with difficulty, where in fact it should be associated with joy…” “It is to me the most perfectly written book. Or perhaps the second most perfectly written book. But this book is deeper, richer and wider.” “I have no idea what it’s like in Dutch, I can’t imagine how you would translate it. But if your English is good enough, read it. And you’ll be astonished by how beautiful it is.”
