Finnegans Wake is even less penetrable than Ulysses, it seems.

You hit the nail on the head. [i:4a81b05c53]Ulysses[/i:4a81b05c53] is hard to begin with, but there’s at least some structure. [i:4a81b05c53]Finnegan’s Wake[/i:4a81b05c53] is so dense and complex I almost laugh every time I pick it up. Joyce is one of my favorite authors, but I doubt I’ll ever be able to slog through these books.
