On May 25 2007, OnionJuicer said:
I am probably alone in this opinion, but I consider James Joyce the most beautiful poet of the 20th century. These poems are delicate, elegant, charming. Often more suggestive than explicit, often sentimental without being maudlin, almost always with extremely lovely sound. Nothing at all like his prose, which I personally don't like, these poems are recommended for anyone with a sensitive ear and a willing heart.
