"At first sight it seems strange that a writer of Mr Joyce's character, so despondent and so porofoundly unsentimental, and so concerned with an untraditional kind of prose, should produce such a poem as this: ["Alone"]." "This occasional poetry lives always upon the hights, and if had not to express the most elevated emotions it would not be written at all. Any other but such high and turbulent emotions Mr Joyce would probably have expressed in his prose writings." J is an "occasional" as opposed to a "professional" poet, therefore adopts the "diction" of others. There is an "urgent sweetness" in the poems.a "concrete quality" to the imagery, e.g. in "Bahnhofstrasse.".
