His short novels are quite good in fairness , I haven't attempted Ulysses or Finnegans Wake .Not Yeats, but Joyce had a go at writing novels. I started reading Portrait of the Artist. To be honest, life is too short to waste more time seeing that through to the end. I can only but imagine what tripe in contained within Ulysses. Joyce, not half the novelist that Walter Macken was.
if you like swift you may like joyce - they're both satirists of sorts - ill stick with yeats when it comes to Ireland though - I predominantly read English verse thoughHis short novels are quite good in fairness , I haven't attempted Ulysses or Finnegans Wake .
