The Tortured Life of Scofield Thayer

Alyse Gregory and her husband visit Thayer and find him in a poor state. They decide it best that he return with them to England, but at the railway station he has a change of heart and flees. Meanwhile, Marianne Moore is the de facto editor of The Dial (a position which she is officially given later), where she causes something of a kerfuffle by refusing to publish James Joyce's Finnegans Wake unless she can cut it. Joyce refuses. Eventually, Thayer's mother goes to Vienna and brings her son back home.

Keywords:   Alyse Gregory, Marianne Moore, James Joyce, Finnegans Wake, Sylvia Beach
