Cover to Cover with Jack Foley

A celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day by way of readings from James Joyce’s first book, Chamber Music (1907)—a book admired by both William Butler Yeats and Ezra Pound. Irish actor Cyril Cusack reads Joyce’s musical lyrics—poems that follow the progress of a love affair. Here is a sample:

Strings in the earth and air
Make music sweet;
Strings by the river where
The willows meet.

There's music along the river
For Love wanders there,
Pale flowers on his mantle,
Dark leaves on his hair.

All softly playing,
With head to the music bent,
And fingers straying
Upon an instrument.
