Amy's Slant on literature…

Moving on with James Joyce

Posted on: 08/24/2010

Despite being distracted by a new puppy, I have made some headway in reading, I still struggle to understand and often go back to reread portions of Ulysses, however I am grasping far more now than when it was mandatory reading in highschool. I think there are many classics I will go back and reread as I am certain I have missed many of the nuances expressed in the writing due to my young age and immaturity when I first read them. So, that is what I am up to , rereading the classics for now… Join me?

I find this with a lot of movies and books. When I was younger I called them “boring” but going back I realise that it’s just because I was inexperienced and didn’t understand the theme.

I’ve realised though that a lot of books that meant a lot to me when I was younger don’t mean the same now. George Orwell’s 1984 blew me away when I was 16, it totally opened my mind. I’d still enjoy it now but it wouldn’t have the same effect.
