For some reason I could never really get into Joyce. Think I read him when I was too young so may give it another go. I think Yeats is an even better example of an Irish nationalist who used tthe English language to further his case. The Lake Isle of Innisfree anotrher favourite poem

You could have said James Joyce, too. Although he rejected British (i.e. English) rule in Ireland, he too thought English was a superb language and extolled its virtues.

Great quote from Donne. His poetry seems oddly modern, when read now, compared with Pope for example.
