[LUCIA] {ANNA} Joyce (26 July 1907, Trieste - 12 December 1982, Northampton) was a professional dancer and the daughter of Irish writer James Joyce and Nora Barnacle. Once treated by Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, Joyce was diagnosed as schizophrenic in the mid 1930s and institutionalized at the Burghölzli psychiatric clinic in Zurich. In 1951, Joyce was transferred to St Andrew's Healthcare in Northampton, where she remained until her death in 1982.>>

<<Lucia of Syracuse (283–304), also known as Saint Lucy or Saint Lucia (Latin: Sancta Lucia), was a Christian martyr who died during the Diocletianic Persecution. Her feast day, known as Saint Lucy's Day, is celebrated in the West on 13 December. Absent in the early narratives and traditions is the story of Lucia tortured by eye-gouging. According to later accounts, before she died she foretold the punishment of Paschasius and the speedy end of the persecution, adding that Diocletian would reign no more, and Maximian would meet his end. This so angered Paschasius that he ordered the guards to remove her eyes. Another version has Lucy taking her own eyes out in order to discourage a persistent suitor who admired them.>>

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imagism

<<Ezra Weston Loomis Pound (30 October 1885 – 1 November 1972) was an expatriate American poet and critic. His contribution to poetry began with his development of *IMAGISM*, a movement derived from classical Chinese and Japanese poetry. *IMAGISM* was a movement in early 20th-century Anglo-American poetry that favored precision of imagery and clear, sharp language. A characteristic feature of Imagism is its attempt to isolate a single image to reveal its essence. This feature mirrors contemporary developments in avant-garde art, especially Cubism. Although Imagism isolates objects through the use of what Ezra Pound called "luminous details", Pound's Ideogrammic Method of juxtaposing concrete instances to express an abstraction is similar to Cubism's manner of synthesizing multiple perspectives into a single image. The Imagists rejected the sentiment and discursiveness typical of much Romantic and Victorian poetry, in contrast to their contemporaries, the Georgian poets, who were generally content to work within that tradition. Imagism called for a return to what were seen as more Classical values, such as directness of presentation and economy of language, as well as a willingness to experiment with non-traditional verse forms. Imagists use free verse.>>

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man [END]
by James Joyce

“Et ignotas animum dimittit in artes.”
Ovid, Metamorphoses, VIII., 18.

April 15. Met her today point blank in Grafton Street. The crowd brought us together. We both stopped. She asked me why I never came, said she had heard all sorts of stories about me. This was only to gain time. Asked me was I writing poems? About whom? I asked her. This confused her more and I felt sorry and mean. Turned off that valve at once and opened the spiritual-heroic refrigerating apparatus, invented and patented in all countries by Dante Alighieri. Talked rapidly of myself and my plans. In the midst of it unluckily I made a sudden g{E}sture of a revolutionary natu{R}e. I must have looked like a fell{O}w throwing a handful of peas in{T}o the air. People began to look a{T} us. She shook hands a moment aft{E}r and, in going away, said she hoped I would do what I said.

Now I call that friendly, don’t you?

Yes, I liked her today. A little or much? Don’t know. I l{I}ked her and it seems a new feeling {T}o me. Then, in that case, all the rest, {A}ll that I thought I thought and al{L} that I felt I felt, all the rest bef{O}re now, in fact... O, give it up, old chap! {S}leep it off!

April 16. Away! Away!

The spell of arms and voices: the white arms of roads, their promise of close embraces and the black arms of tall ships that stand against the moon, their tale of distant nations. They are held out to say: We are alone—come. And the voices say with them: We are your kinsmen. And the air is thick with their company as they call to me, their kinsman, making ready to go, shaking the wings of their exultant and terrible youth.

April 26. Mother is putting my new secondhand clothes in order. She prays now, she says, that I may learn in my own life and away from home and friends what the heart is and what it feels. Amen. So be it. Welcome, O life! I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

April 27. Old father, old artificer, stand me now and ever in good stead.

<<On 7 January 1904 Joyce attempted to publish A Portrait of the Artist, an essay-story dealing with aesthetics, only to have it rejected by the free-thinking magazine Dana. He decided, on his 22nd birthday, to revise the story into a novel he called Stephen Hero. It was never published in this form, but years later, in [TRIESTE], Joyce completely rewrote it as A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. The unfinished Stephen Hero was published after his death.>>

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italo_Svevo

<<Aron Ettore Schmitz (19 December 1861 – 13 September 1928), better known by the pseudonym Italo Svevo, was an Italian writer, businessman, novelist, playwright, and short story writer. Svevo contributed to Italian-language publication L'Indipendente (it),and began writing plays (which he rarely finished) before beginning work on Una (VITA) in 1887. A close friend of Irish novelist and poet James Joyce, Svevo was a model for Leopold *BLOOM*, the protagonist of Joyce's seminal novel Ulysses. Svevo was considered a pioneer of the psychological novel in Italy and is best known for his classic Modernist novel La Coscienza di (ZENO) (1923), a work that had a profound effect on the movement.

Born in [TRIESTE] (then in Austrian Empire, after 1867 Austria-Hungary) as Aron Ettore Schmitz to a Jewish German father and an Italian mother, Svevo was one of seven children and grew up enjoying a passion for literature from a young age, reading Goethe, Schiller, Shakespeare and the classics of Russia. Svevo was a citizen of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the end of the First World War. He spoke Italian as a second language.

In 1923, Italo Svevo (literally Italian Swabian) wrote and published the classic novel La Coscienza di Zeno (rendered as Confessions of (ZENO), or (ZENO)'s Conscience). The work, showing the author's interest in the theories of Sigmund Freud, is written in the form of the memoirs of one Zeno Cosini, who writes them at the insistence of his psychoanalyst. Svevo's novel received almost no attention from Italian readers and critics at the time.

The work might have disappeared altogether if it were not for the efforts of James Joyce. Joyce had met Svevo in 1907, when Joyce tutored him in English while working for Berlitz in [TRIESTE]. Joyce read Svevo's earlier novel Senilità, which had also been largely ignored when published in 1898.

Joyce championed Confessions of (ZENO), helping to have it translated into French and then published in Paris, where critics praised it extravagantly. That led Italian critics, including Eugenio Montale, to discover it. (ZENO) Cosini, the book's hero, mirrored Svevo himself, being a businessman fascinated by Freudian theory. Confessions of (ZENO) never looks outside the narrow confines of [TRIESTE], much like Joyce's work, which rarely left Dublin in the last years of Ireland's time as part of the United Kingdom. Svevo brings a keenly sardonic wit to his observations of [TRIESTE] and, in particular, to his hero, an indifferent man who cheats on his wife, lies to his psychoanalyst and is trying to explain himself to his psychoanalyst by revisiting his memories.

There is a final connection between Svevo and the character Cosini. Cosini sought psychoanalysis, he said, in order to discover why he was addicted to nicotine. As he reveals in his memoirs, each time he had given up smoking, with the iron resolve that this would be the "ultima sigaretta!!", he experienced the exhilarating feeling that he was now beginning life over without the burden of his old habits and mistakes. That feeling was, however, so strong that he found smoking irresistible, if only so that he could stop smoking again in order to experience that thrill once more.

Like his most famous character Zeno, Svevo smoked for all of his life. After being involved in a serious car accident, he was brought into hospital at Motta di Livenza, where his health rapidly failed. As death approached he asked one of his visitors for a cigarette. It was refused. Svevo replied: "That really would have been the last cigarette." He died that afternoon.>>

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Liffey

<<The River Liffey (Irish: An Life) is a river in Ireland, which flows through the centre of Dublin. Its major tributaries include the River Dodder, the River Poddle and the River Camac. The river supplies much of Dublin's water and a range of recreational activities. Ptolemy's Geography (2nd century AD) described a river, perhaps the Liffey, which he labelled Οβοκα (Oboka). Ultimately this led to the name of the River Avoca. The Liffey was previously named An Ruirthech, meaning "fast (or strong) *RUNNER*". The word Liphe (or Life) referred originally to the name of the plain through which the river ran, but eventually came to refer to the river itself. It was also known as the Anna Liffey, possibly from an anglicisation of Abhainn na Life, the Irish phrase that translates into English as "River Liffey". James Joyce embodies the river as "[A]nna [L]ivia [P]lurabelle" in Finnegans Wake.>>
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finnegans_Wake#Anna_Livia_Plurabelle_(ALP)

<<[A]nna [L]ivia [P]lurabelle [ALP]: Patrick McCarthy describes {HCE}'s wife [ALP]
as "the [RIVER]-woman whose presence is implied in the "[RIVER]run" with which
Finnegans Wake opens and whose monologue closes the book. For over 600 pages,
Joyce presents Anna Livia to us almost exclusively through other characters, much as
in Ulysses we hear what Molly Bloom has to say about herself only in the last chapter."
The most extensive discussion of ALP comes in chapter I.8, in which hundreds of names
of rivers are woven into the tale of ALP's life, as told by two gossiping washerwomen.
Similarly hundreds of city names are woven into "{H}aveth {C}hilders {E}VERywhere",
the corresponding passage at the end of III.3 which focuses on {HCE}.
It is generally contended that {HCE} personifies the Viking-founded city of Dublin,
and his wife [ALP] personifies the [RIVER] Liffey, on whose banks the city was built.

Rationale: The New Edition of Finnegans Wake
DANIS ROSE: The Editorial Methodology

<<Level 5+ (MS 47475-92ff.; JJA 44:253ff.), a duplicate of the above with fresh additions (sent to the printer of Finnegans Wake in 1936), evidences two major additions to the text: the insertion of “past Eve and Adam’s” to follow “riverrun” and the insertion of “by commodious recirculation” to follow “us”. The latter is further intertextually rewritten as “by a commodious vicus of recirculation”, thereby indicating the intended spelling of “commodious” twice.

Draft 6: Level 6 is the first set of galley proofs (MS 47476a/b, folios 1ff; JJA 49:005ff.), dated by the printer 12 March 1937 (the revised version of these proofs were received by Harriet Shaw Weaver on 25 February 1938: see Letters, I, 14 July and 6 August 1937, and Letters, III, 18 December 1937). This level introduces our very first errors. The setting also introduces three further errors, two subsequently uncorrected: the misspelling of “commodious” as “commodius”; the unwarranted ‘correction’ by the printer of the ampersand “&” to the word “and”; and (subsequently corrected) the appearance of a comma rather than a full stop to follow “Environs”. The original run-on form of the first two sentences remains.>>

Another Look at the Rose/O’Hanlon Finnegans Wake
Terence Killeen, James Joyce Centre, Dublin

<<The “Rationale” that appears on the Houyhnhnm website is more helpful, as far as it goes. It does not in fact go beyond the first page of Finnegans Wake. Two of the three changes that Rose makes in this opening sentence can be debated (in the case of one, the change of “commodius” to “commodious”, the evidence in favour of the emendation seems to me quite straightforward: the word “commodious” is first inscribed in the second set of transition proofs; it becomes “commodius” on the first set of galley proofs and it is the kind of slip that could easily be overlooked) but they are certainly the outcome of arguable decisions. One might come to a different conclusion from Rose on the basis of the evidence, and in one case there is evidence that he appears to have ignored or overlooked, but a case has certainly been made.>>

http://www.finnegansweb.com/wiki/index.php/Category:Thunderwords

<<Joyce described FW as a downwards parabola into sleep, or as a tunnel going through a mountain. As HCE moves through the dream, the "thunderwords" track his movement. There are 10 thunderwords, the first 9 of 100 letters each, the last of 101, for a total of 1,001--tales of a thousand and one nights, appropriate for this book of sleep.

As each thunderword leads into another part of the book, it fits into Joyce's usage of Vico's philosophy to tell the story. Each thunderword leads to a new cycle and a deeper part of sleep, and a deeper, more muddled state in HCE's mind (where the "mudmound" of his body fades from view and even the acrostics for HCE become muddled, as hec, ech, etc.). Thunder itself was important in Vico's philosophy as a motivating force and a symbolic marker of events in history.

Bacon was himself accustomed frequently to use the letters of the

.......................................................................
The only *FREEMASON* paragraph in Portrait of the Artist:

The formula which he wrote obediently on the sheet of paper, the coiling and
uncoiling calculations of the professor, the spectrelike symbols of force and
velocity fascinated and jaded Stephen’s mind. He had heard some say that the
old professor was an atheist *FREEMASON*. O the grey dull day! It seemed a limbo
of painless patient consciousness throug[H] which souls of mathem{A}ticians
might wander, project[I]ng long slender fa{B}rics from plane to plane of ever
ra[R]er and paler tw{I}light, radiating swift eddies to the l[A]st verge{F}
of a universe ever vaster, farther and more i[M]palpable.

<<[WILL]iam Butler (YEATS) (13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939) was an Irish poet and one of the foremost figures of 20th century literature. A pillar of both the Irish & British literary establishments, he helped to found the Abbey Theatre, and in his later years served as an Irish Senator for two terms. (YEATS) began writing his first works when he was seventeen; these included a draft of a play about a bishop, a monk, and a woman accused of paganism by local shepherds. In 1899, Yeats, Lady Gregory, Edward Martyn and George Moore began the Irish Literary Theatre to hold Irish and Celtic plays. Yeats remained involved with the Abbey until his death, both as a member of the board and a prolific playwright.>>

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn (HOGD) was founded in 1888 by [FREEMASONS] and members of the SRIA. The Rosicrucian connection allegedly derived from a mysterious German adept; Fraulein Anna Sprengel, whom they contacted after having encountered some old cypher-manuscripts belonging to her lodge. The HOGD became an indisputable success, and attracted many prominent persons of its time, including A.E. Waite, Mina Bergson, Edvard Munch, August Strindberg, Rider Haggard, R.F.

Dublin again briefly in mid-1912 during his years-long fight with Dublin publisher
George Roberts over the publication of Dubliners. His trip was once again fruitless,
and on his return he wrote the poem "Gas from a Burner", an invective against Roberts.
After this trip, he never again came closer to Dublin than London, despite many
pleas from his father and invitations from fellow Irish writer William Butler Yeats.

to revise all previously published sections until Finnegans Wake's final published
form, resulting in the text existing in a number of different forms, to the point
that critics can speak of Finnegans Wake being a different entity to Work in Progress.
The book was finally published simultaneously by Faber and Faber in London and by
Viking Press in New York on 4 May 1939, after seventeen years of composition.>>

Since brasse, nor stone, nor earth, nor boundlesse sea,
But sad mortallity ore-swaies their power,
How with this rage shall beautie hold a plea,
Whose action is no stronger then a flower?

O how shall summers hunny breath hold out,
Against the wrackfull siedge of battring dayes,
When rocks impregnable are not so stoute,
Nor gates of steele so strong but time decayes?

O feare{F}ull meditation, where alack,
Sh[(A)LL] times {B}est Iewell from times chest lie hid?
Or wh{A|T) strong hand can hold his swift foote ba{C}k,
Or who his (S)poile of beautie can [FOR]bid?

That in black inck my love may still s(H)ine bright.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Joyce

<<In 1915, after most of his students were conscripted in [TRIESTE: then part of "Bohemia"] for World War I, [James Joyce (2 February 1882 - 13 January 1941)] moved to Zurich. (BArON) Ambrogio Ralli & Count Francesco Sordina, petitioned officials for an exit permit for the Joyces, who in turn agreed not to take any action against the emperor of Austria-Hungary during the war. Zurich during the war was home to exiles and artists from across Europe, and its bohemian, multilingual atmosphere suited him. Nevertheless, after four years he was restless, and after the war he returned to [TRIESTE: now part of {ITALY}] as he had originally planned. He found the city had changed, and some of his old friends noted his maturing from teacher to full-time artist. His relations with his brother (who had been interned in an Austrian prison camp for most of the war due to his pro-{ITALY} politics) were more strained than ever. Joyce headed to Paris in 1920 at an invitation from Ezra Pound, supposedly for a week, but he ended up living there for the next twenty years.>>
----------------------------------------------------
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trieste#20th_century

<<At the beginning of the 20th century, Trieste was a bustling cosmopolitan city frequented by artists and philosophers such as James Joyce, Italo Svevo, Sigmund Freud, Zofka Kveder, Dragotin Kette, Ivan Cankar, Scipio Slataper, and Umberto Saba. The city was the major port on the Austrian Riviera, and perhaps the only real enclave of Mitteleuropa south of the Alps. Viennese architecture and coffeehouses dominate the streets of Trieste to this day. {ITALY}, in return for entering World War I on the side of the Allied Powers, annexed the city of Trieste. While only a few hundred Italians remained in the newly established South Slavic state, a population of half a million Slavs were cut off from the remaining three-quarters of total Slovene population at the time and were subjected to forced Italianization. The {ITALIAN} lower middle class—who felt most threatened by the city's Slovene middle class—sought to make Trieste a città italianissima, committing a series of attacks led by Black Shirts against Slovene-owned shops, libraries, and lawyers' offices, and even the Trieste National Hall, a central building to the Slovene community.>>

However reverting to friend Sinbad and his horrifying adventures

the boards of the Gaiety when Michael Gunn was identified with the

of admirers came in large numbers, everyone simply flocking to hear him
though ships of any sort, phantom or the reverse, on the s[T]age usually
fell a bit flat as also did t[R]ains) there was nothing intrinsically
[I]ncompatible about it, he conceded. On th[E] contrary that stab in the
back touch wa[S] quite in keeping with those {ITALIANOS} [T]hough candidly he
was none the less fre[E] to admit those icecreamers and friers [I]n the fish

except perhaps a bit too given to pothunting the harmless necessary
animal of the feline persuasion of others at night so as to have a good
old succulent tuckin with garlic _de rigueur_ off him or her next day
on the quiet and, he added, on the cheap.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stanislaus_Joyce

<<John Joyce (4 July 1849 - 29 December 1931) was the father of writer James Joyce, and a well known Dublin man about town. The son of [JAMES] and Ellen Joyce, John Joyce grew up in Cork, where his mother's family, which claimed kinship to "Liberator" Daniel O'Connell, was quite prominent. Of all his children, John Joyce got along well only with his eldest, [JAMES], who enjoyed his father's company and shared in some of his traits, including his musical talent and his inability with money. John Joyce inspired several characters in his son's works, such as Simon Dedalus in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses, Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker in Finnegans Wake, and the narrator's uncle in the stories "The Sisters" and "Araby" in Dubliners.>>

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulysses_%28novel%29

<<The publication history of Ulysses is disputed and obscure. There have been at least 18 editions, and variations in different impressions of each edition. Joyce's handwritten manuscripts were typed by a number of amateur typists (one of whom was Robert McAlmon).

According to Joyce scholar Jack Dalton, the first edition of Ulysses contained over two thousand errors but was still the most accurate edition published. As each subsequent edition attempted to correct these mistakes, it incorporated more of its own.

Notable editions include the first edition published in Paris on 2 February 1922 by Sylvia Beach at Shakespeare and Company (only 1000 copies printed), the pirated Roth edition, published in New York in 1929, the Odyssey Press edition of 1932 (including some revisions generally attributed to Stuart Gilbert, and therefore sometimes considered the most accurate edition); the 1934 Random House US edition, the first English edition of the Bodley Head in 1936, the revised Bodley Head Edition of 1960, the revised Random House edition of 1961 (reset from the Bodley Head 1960 edition), and the Gabler critical and synoptic edition of 1984.

<<"Bleibtreustrasse" is an actual street in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin,
named after the painter Georg Bleibtreu in 1897. But its English equivalent would
be something like "Stay True Street," or "Remain Faithful Road." When Bloom thinks
in the next moment, "Nothing doing. Still an idea behind it," he is referring to
the Agendath Netaim proposal, and the idea is Zionism. But Bleibtreustrasse
implies a second kind of idea.>>

Episode 9 - Scylla and Charybdis

—Well, in that case, he said, I don’t see why you should expect payment for it
since you don’t believe it yourself. Dowden believes there is some mystery in Hamlet
but will say no more. Herr Bleibtreu, the man Piper met in Berlin, who is working up
that Rutland theory, believes that the secret is hidden in the Stratford monument.
He is going to visit the present duke, Piper says, and prove to him that his ancestor
wrote the plays. It will come as a surprise to his grace. But he believes his theory.

Episode 15 - Circe

BEAUFOY: (Drawls.) No, you aren’t. Not by a long shot if I know it. I don’t see it,
that’s all. No born gentleman, no-one with the most rudimentary promptings of a
gentleman would stoop to suc[H] part[I]cula[R]ly lo[A]thso[M]e conduct. One of
those, my lord. A plagiarist. A soapy sneak masquerading as a literateur. It’s
perfectly obvious that with the most inherent baseness he has cribbed some of my
bestselling copy, really gorgeous stuff, a perfect gem, the love passages in which
are beneath suspicion. The Beaufoy books of love and great possessions, with which
your lordship is doubtless familiar, are a household word throughout the kingdom.

The formula which he wrote obediently on the sheet of paper, the coiling and
uncoiling calculations of the professor, the spectrelike symbols of force and
velocity fascinated and jaded Stephen’s mind. He had heard some say that the
old professor was an atheist *FREEMASON*.
An atheist cannot be a Freemason, Art; belief in a supreme being is a necessary condition for being admitted to the order.
