JAMES JOYCE'S WOMEN - Fionnula Flanagan [1985] DVD



Nora Barnacle, the widow of literary giant James Joyce, recalls her late husband's affiliations with a number of women who influenced
the author, including herself; his patron, Harriet Shaw Weaver, and the publisher of his epic literary masterpiece 'Ulysses' Sylvia Beach. Joyce's relations with these women take on an added significance through their connections to important female characters in the writer's own works.

In this tribute to James Joyce, Fionnula Flanagan gives a tour-de-force performance as a half-dozen or so women in Joyce's real and fictional worlds.
