The Voice of James Joyce

I didn't even know there were any recordings of James Joyce in existence, but here's a sample of him reading his classic Finnegan's Wake via Boing Boing. It's a great example of an Irish accent, though an unsubstantiated commenter notes that Joyce is altering his accent to protray a rural washer woman character.

James Joyce - Finnegan's Wake

It'd be interesting to read this along with the text and note the vowel and phoneme changes.
