Good for you anon. Think for yourself. I have maintained for quite awhile that most of the "classics" are total shit full of sophistry and are promoted for that very reason.

classical literature

I thought Joyce was a Post-Modern, not a Classicist?

I have read it, its a masterpiece imo. He wasn't Jewish and neither was the hero of the book. I can't blame you for not understanding it, its a difficult read, but two questions for you:

What was happening in chapter four?

What was Molly Bloom up to in the soliloquie at the end?
A clue, its nothing to do with faggotry at all, not in the slightest. It just that OP doesn't have a sense of humor.

Bloom was Jewish but Joyce was an Irish Catholic. Chapter 4 was about what goes through Blooms mind while he is having a shite and Molly Bloom is either playing with herself or getting laid in the chapter. Chapter four is best read while having a shite imo, read about blooms thoughts about turds while thinking your own thoughts about your turds.

Maybe you could write a book about it? Call it "What a lot of Shite!!!"
