Joyce and Finnegans Wake reminds me of Caden Cotard and his play in Synecdoche New York Caden is nominated for a MacArthur Fellowship grant and he decides to go about writing and directing a radical revolutionary play His aim is to encapsulate life itself by mimicking life itself As the movie goes on the play becomes and complicated because Caden adds and individual storylines occurring concomitantly The play is eventually moved to an abandoned jet hangar to fit the set The set is a microcosmic honeycomb of the world outside it couples are breaking A Walk Across France up in one room a woman is pregnantnexpectedly someone kills themselves etc Everyone is enad with Caden s genius Nicademus until he becomes overly engrossed with his work and the play subsumes his realitySo why does Caden s masterpiece never entertain a real audience Why is Finnegans Wake often deemed a piece of literary curiosa The book is so expansive that to really enjoy it one would have to be an omnipotent power There s absolutely no way one can be so erudite as tonderstand every pun reference and trope One would have to be fluent in French Russian German Irish Gaelic Italian maybe even Chinese one would have to be familiar with Nordic Irish Indian Chinese etc etc myth one would have to be not just familiar with world geography but be a human atlas Joyce worked on Finnegans Wake for fourteen years with help from the likes of Samuel Beckett Joyce was no omnipotent being This isn t inherently bad but it makes this book a life project and even as one coughs p a couple last breaths as a well read octogenarian they still would have missed something in the bookHaving not read the book Campbell does a decent job of dumbing it down for you but even in reading the idiot s guide the book is clearly outrageously difficult Anyway I m gonna go for it not sure how much insight was provided but it did give some structure to my own reading much of campbell s later proto myth bs is thrown throughout although in joyce s case he might have been right about what the attempt was who knows preferred anthony burgess essay although any interpretation is really hard to separate from the interpretermostly joyce loved puns but not the funny kindin the beginning of the ALP section that ends the book you readSoft morning city Lsp I am leafy speaing Lpf Folty and folty all the nights have failed on to long my hair Not a sound falling Lispn No wind no word Only a leaf just a leaf and then leaves The woods are fond always As were we their babes in And robins in crews so It is for me goolden wending Unless Away Rise p man of the hooths you have slept so long Or is it only so hesleemsthis is one of the least nonsensical passages and gives a glimpse of what campbell and morton mean when they talk about the Turning The Professor Into A Crossdressing, Sissified and Feminized Pet - A Tale of Forced Feminization! ur meaning of joyce s language Here ALP is the wife of HCE waking himp the river Liffey running through town I am leafy and a tree losing its leaves as ALP loses her hair All three are one and conjure images of decay rebirth renewal The fall and the rising and the suddenness of both the themes which do poke through whenever meaning seems close bymostly though i think of my own dreams where two people might be the same people a place may shift from one to the next without a thought or explanation and a never ending dread of the future and misremembering of the past might weigh over everything that is the only lens i could find to make any sense of the wake One of the first and still indispensable books for working through Finnegan s Wake The authors present their sense of the text beneath the text beneath the text beneath the text along with some commentary and thoughts about what is going onCampbell went on to become an icon in the field of mythology symbolism and world religions His knowledge and intellectual powers are at full play here in what was one of his earliest texts This was offputting to me I read about a hundred pages before I put it down To me it is like translations of William Shakespeare into contemporary English Shakespeare stole most of his stories so the idea that the beauty of his writing is in his stories and that his language is an obstacle to that beauty seems dubious to meIt should be nderstood that my distaste for The Skeleton Key is a reflection of my own biases about art and aesthetics than of Robinson and Campbell s work From what I read of it Robinson and Campbell were making a kind of sense of much of Finnegans Wake I found that I disagreed with how they were doing it To tack on another reference to the Shakespeare cultural industry to me
"it smelled of Bowdlerization which is not to say that Robinson and Campbell clean p Joyce s work rather "smelled of Bowdlerization which is not to say that Robinson and Campbell clean p Joyce s work rather me the Skeleton Key seemed a dilution of my reading experience rather than a distillation of Joyce s powerful text
