9780060501792: The James Joyce Audio Collection

James Joyce and Cyril Cusack bring some of Joyce’s most memorable works to life.

1. James Joyce reads from Ulysses – passage from the Aeolus episode ... circa 1921 4:11
2. Chamber Music, I–XXXVI – Cyril Cusack 22:25
3. James Joyce reads from Finnegan’s Wake – passage from Anna Livia Plurabelle... circa 1932 8:31
4. Pomes Penyeach-read – Cyril Cusack 9:16
5. Ecce Puer – Cyril Cusack 0:37

James Joyce’s self-referential, allusive, and pun-filled works are widely recognized as the signature pieces of European modernist literature, and helped hasten the 20th Century break from traditionally recognized forms of prose. He repeatedly explored the themes of childhood and adulthood, and youth and maturity while simultaneously widening the boundaries of the novel.

This collection includes a most fascinating treat – the landmark recording of James Joyce reading a section from Ulysses. This rare recording was made in 1924, and Joyce’s reading provides the singular experience of hearing the work as he intended it to be read. He also reads from another of his most important works – Finnegan’s Wake.

Cyril Cusack also provides a unique insight of spoken-word to a small selection of Joyce’s wonderful works.
