No.1 post **********Exploring the Joyce's traumatizing childhood experiences*************Hello, Mr. Alhamoui and folks!!Referring to my original Discussion 8 posting:During his academic periods, he excelled through the University College Dublin, although his father was an alcoholic and eventually unemployed, which contributed to the emotional isolation of his mother. However, James must love her, because he drank heavily after his mother's death, caused by liver cancer in 1904. According to the James Joyce Centre, Joyce wrote to a colleague to answer that, "he believed his mother was killed by his father's behavior" (James Joyce Centre, 2014).

Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, then fade and wither dismally with age ... countless dead in living people's lives, and observes that everyone he knows, himself included, will one day only be a memory (Suzuki, The Dead, 2017). Speaking of the “Death”, a few days ago, a doctor diagnosed my good friend with cancer (6 months to live). When I face with "Death," I am awake in my mind. And I appreciate any form of life and my existence ever before.
