The Trial of Ulysses

Watched this 50 minute (they make 'em that long?) YouTube video that I thought would be about U.S. Appeals Court Judge John M. Woolsey's decision to finally allow Ulysses into the United States. It wasn't about that. It's a survey of Joyce's time in Trieste. I liked it for that, too.

Interesting to see some of the living experts on Joyce whose names I've read in the past. They're not how I ever pictured them, but they LOOK as they should look. Then I realized I'd never made any effort to picture them anyway. Some peculiar people, not a surprise. We Joyceans ARE a precious lot. Nice to see footage of elderly Sylvia Beach rocking the same haircut she had in her 20s!
