James Joyce inspires me. Some people say he was pompous but even if he was I find so much joy reading his works. He shares in a defiant way but it’s so creative I let it happen. How freeing it is to create. He seemed to take full advantage of his ability to string scenes together and present it in a unique way to his audience.
That reminds me, I should pull his book out and take some time to read it again.
James Joyce wrote some experimental fictions like Ulysses and Finnigan’s Wake. He also wrote literary fictions a couple titled The Dubliners and A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man.

If you haven’t yet, take some time to venture through his works. Even if you don like them, you’ll see how Joyce ventured outside the box. And if that’s not art, I don’t know what is.
