and yes I said yes I will yes

It’s unanimous!

You’re Ulysses!
by James Joyce
Most people are convinced that you don’t make any sense, but compared
to what else you could say, what you’re saying now makes tons of sense. What people do
understand about you is your vulgarity, which has convinced people that you are at once
brilliant and repugnant. Meanwhile you are content to wander around aimlessly, taking in
the sights and sounds of the city. What you see is vast, almost limitless, and brings you
additional fame. When no one is looking, you dream of being a Greek folk hero.

  1. Hmph. I got Stephen King, said “bo-o-o-ogussss” and took it again with different copy. Dickens this time. It was the best of times, it was the –oh, fuck it.

  2. I don’t think that second test uses a very sophisticated method of assessment. “Stephen King” probably means “simple (not compound) sentences” and “James Joyce” means “running on like that, you lascivious thing, you!”

    As one of my test passages, I used a snippet of my paper on sexual language in Shakespeare’s sonnets: perfectly grammatical but complex paragraphs loaded with argot and parenthetical notes. Oh, and the smut. There’s no one like Shakespeare for the smut.
