A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man – FLNWO #29

08/17/20155 Comments

joycesquareIn this edition of Film, Literature and the New World Order James is joined by author, artist, podcaster and researcher Thomas Sheridan of ThomasSheridanArts.com. Together they tackle James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man…and the entirety of the Joycean ouevre. Is Joyce the ultimate anti-imperialist, post-colonial, iconoclastic exile hero? The smith of the uncreated conscience? A literary magician? A man whose hand did many other things as well? All and none of the above? Yes I said yes he will yes.

  1. James,

    Very interesting episode. Thank you.

    Love the discussion! I have only recently come by Joyce, but when learning more about him and Finnegans Wake, I found these recordings that demonstrate the playfulness of his language:

    The Ballad of Persse O’Reilly (melody and lyrics by Joyce):

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbXE18lO8-g (the full song, sung in a pub)

    Joyce himself reading an excerpt from the first chapter of Finnegans Wake:

    I love how rhythmic and sing-song his prose is.

    Thank you for this introduction to Joyce. I also enjoyed the analysis of Borges’ ‘Library of Babel’ (FLNWO#27) which spurred me to read a few of his highly mystical short stories and essays.

    Totally agree with Thomas’ sentiments re: ‘Art is magic’. These works can have a profound affect on the consciousness of individuals and are a very powerful force for change and subversion. I think it will be art that saves us in the end!

    I knew very little about James Joyce until hearing this pod cast. I found it enjoyable!

    Thanks to both James Corbett and Thomas Sheridan!
