Foundational Essays in James Joyce Studies

This chapter provides information regarding the omitted text pages of Joyce's Finnegans Wake. The British Museum MSS gave valuable information regarding the history of the omitted passages and revealed that six of the omissions quoted by Higginson (those at 90.28, 138.30, 145.19, 188.01, 485.10, 497.05) were in fact deleted by Joyce at various stages during the preparation of the final text. While a few passages were corrupted during the processes of amplification of the early printed versions for the final text, a very large number of alterations and additions to proofs and typescripts never reached the printing stage because of the extreme untidiness of the material the printers and typists had to work from.
