Foundational Essays in James Joyce Studies

Robert Boyle, S.J.

University Press of Florida

This chapter provides analysis and criticism of page 185 of Finnegans Wake, which deals with events in Joyce's artistic career. The chapter analyzes the phrase-by-phrase meaning of the Latin passage on page 185. Significant additions in the passage are also thoroughly analyzed. The relevant passages on pages 108–112 of Joyce's first and second drafts of this text, reproduced in David Hayman's invaluable A First-Draft Version of Finnegans Wake (Austin, 1963), are also cited for this analysis of page 185. This page of Finnegans Wake exemplifies the philosophy of art, the bitter vulgarity, the delight in word-play, the rebellious blasphemy, the determination to total honesty, the doubt of self, the hatred of hypocrisy, and the straining idealism of the youthful Joyce.

Keywords:   Finnegans Wake, James Joyce, artistic career, phrase, Latin, first draft
