“My dear Nora, It just struck me. I came in at half past eleven. Since then, I have been sitting in my easy chair like a fool. I could do nothing. I hear nothing but your voice. I am like a fool hearing you call me ‘Dear.’ I offended two men today by leaving them cooly. I wanted to hear your voice, not theirs.”

–James Joyce to Nora Barnacle, August 15, 1904
