Death mask of James Joyce

Death-mask of
James Joyce

James Joyce Quote
The characteristics that enabled him to sustain his purpose are apparent in his very death-mask. Delicately but firmly molded, the head is long and narrow, the forehead high, the chin strong, and the eyes are closed. It is the face of his Stephen Dedalus, of the perennial student, of a man who carries to the verge of his sixtieth year the agility, the curiosity, the sensibility of his youth.
James Joyce Unquote

[ Harry Levin ]
