Subject:        Shakespeare/Joyce Quote Query

Dear SHAKSPEReans:

Can anybody tell me the source (in Joyce, I think) of the phrase "The sonnets
of Shakespeare are the last refuge of minds gone round the bend"? (I'm sure the
quote is nowhere near exact as I've given it, by the way.)

Many thanks in advance to anyone who can and will; I've been wondering about
this from time to time for years, but now want to put it in an article.

                                                         Leo Daugherty
