"A world infinitely populated"

15 Jan 2016

Edmund Wilson for New Republic in 1932:

Mr. [James] Joyce manages to give the effect of unedited human minds, drifting aimlessly along from one triviality to another, confused and diverted by memory, by sensation and by inhibition. It is, in short, perhaps the most faithful X-ray ever taken of the ordinary human consciousness.
