• The scintillating power of YES

    This is the YES that rolled out of the mouth of Molly in Ulysses (Gabler Edition) (1906) by James Joyce, the book that turned literature around with the quintessential flow of his feminine writing. This female character uttered a roaring YES in a gesture that celebrated life with gusto, without fear, without submitting to anything or anyone. This is power, to know your essence and sing it in pure affirmation. A Goddess. Out her throat and lips came a YES that shattered all the oppressive NOs into nothingness.
