Brilliant Review of Joyce's Ulysses

Ulysses is an overwrought, overwritten epic of gratingly obvious, self-congratulatory, show-off erudition that, with its overstuffed symbolism and leaden attempts at humor, is bearable only by terminal graduate students who demand we validate the time they've wasted reading it.
Ron Rosenbaum is my new hero. I'm going to make an effort to use the phrase "terminal graduate student" every day for a month. (Found via The Daily Dish.)
