That's a new one.
Here's an overview, makes me want to read it again. I still have all my notes.
I could dig out my companion books to recommend if you're interested in taking the full plunge.

"I've put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant, and that's the only way of insuring one's immortality."
That comment alone means I HAVE to read it. It gives me chillsI am aware of Richard Ellman. My mother used to teach a course on Ulysses and that was one of the books she used. I regret never taking advantage of her knowledge of that book while she was alive. I was too busy trying to get her to read Burroughs, which was completely a lost cause.
If you can recommend some companion books I'd be grateful. Don't break your neck, I want to read Portrait first. Kind of gear up for the big feast.
BTW, I enjoyed your comments on Arthur Miller in one of those political threads. I've seen The Crucible and it's a fantastic play -- not to mention the single best commentary on that whole Red Scare, IMO.
