Virtual Bloomsday on Broadway -- and more!

Happy Bloomsday to All!

First, Please mark your calendar for our first-ever virtual James Joyce Society meeting scheduled for Friday, September 25th. Mike Groden will be our speaker. We certainly hope to meet again at Glucksman Ireland House NYU, but between now and that time we are adapting the best we can to the restrictions placed on us by the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Omniscience Joyce Conference: Trieste, Italy POSTPONED TO 2021
    Trieste Symposium
    Tue 3/10/2020 3:16 PM
    Dear friends and colleagues,

    It is with great regret that we announce that the Trieste Joyce Symposium has been postponed until June 2021. This decision has been taken along with the Board of Trustees of the International James Joyce Foundation in light of the situation in Italy and elsewhere. Rather than continue to plan amid mounting uncertainty, we have agreed to postpone the symposium by a year.

    We had a tremendous response to our call for papers – over 250 people signed up to participate in Omniscientific Joyce – and we were all excited about what promised to be a wonderful conference. That said, we now look forward to welcoming a stellar gathering to the shores of the mare Adriatico in June 2021.

    Best wishes,

    Ronan, John, Katherine, and Laura.

    -- Ronan Crowley, John McCourt, Katherine O’Callaghan, and Laura Pelaschiar Omniscientific Joyce Organising Committee


    From John McCourt
    March 9 at 10:54 AM

    Looking in at Italy people should be able to see how serious things are with Covid-19 and to realise it is not an Italian problem. What we have here is a dramatic situation which the government is trying hard to manage: rapidly climbing numbers of people infected, many seriously, and a rapidly growing number of deaths. Vast areas are in quarantine; huge numbers working from home or trying to, normal life suspended, prison riots, an economy in free fall. Life has changed utterly in a week and even if things pick up in a couple of months this is the start of a much bigger change. Life as we knew it, where economic growth is the only criteria that matters, has to end. The planet cannot take it any more. Looking out from Italy, the impression is that the penny hasn't really dropped and that a lot of people still haven't realised that Italy is simply a week or two ahead of the other countries, a test case (with a fair more resilient public health service than many other countries have). It is dispiriting to see Trump off playing golf and belittling the crisis, Boris Johnson telling us nothing has changed, Cheltenham going ahead as well as a Wales-Scotland rugby match, Leo Varadkar dithering about St Patrick's Day parades and flying to Washington to give the orange man a shamrock, the 160 members of Dail Eireann allowing a party with just 35 TDs to coordinate the response when what is needed is a national emergency government. Yes, we should all wash our hands but it is also time for governments and people take serious action to help manage what will be a very difficult social situation. Alternatively they can just to read Ulysses and hope for the best.

    Flower of the Bath, pray for us.

    Wandering Soap, pray for us.

    Midwife Most Merciful, pray for us.

    Potato Preservative against Plague and Pestilence, pray for us.




    John McCourt
    Update from Italy, 17 March 2020

    The total number of Coronavirus cases in Italy (included the deceased and the cured): 31,506 (+2898 since yesterday and a bigger jump than over the previous day.

    A further 192 were cured over the past 24 hours bringing the total to 2,941.

    A further 2,989 people tested positive.

    11,109 of those infected are at home in self-isolation.

    12,894 are in hospital but a further 2,060 are in intensive care.

    A further 345 people died over the past 24 hours bringing the total to 2,503.

    The peak in this pandemic in Italy has been pushed back to 25 March so clearly we are still very much in the thick of the struggle.

    Despite a fairly disciplined national response to the need to keep by the self-distancing rules, 7,890 Italians were reported for non-compliance with the anti-Covid-19 laws (in other words they were out and about causing danger to themselves and to those who were out because they had to be.

    The 17th of March is both Ireland’s national day – St Patrick’s Day - and the Italian National Unity Day. The Unity of Italy was proclaimed in Turin on 17 March, 1861. Italy, experts say, is 10 days or so ahead of Ireland in its battle against #Covid-19. Let’s hope Ireland and other countries are learning from its good example. Let’s also think of today as a day to hope for even more European unity in the fight against this beast which we can beat if we stay united by staying divided in our homes. #andratuttobene #allwillbewell

    Jan Pieters Sweelink. The quaint name of the old Dutch musician makes all beauty
    seem quaint and far. I hear his variations for the clavichord on an old air: Youth has
    an end.
    In the vague mist of old sounds a faint point of light appears: the speech of
    the soul is about to be heard. Youth has an end: the end is here. It will never be.
    You know that well. What then? Write it, damn you, write it! What else are you
    good for?

    “Why?”
    “Because otherwise I could not see you.”
    Sliding-space-ages-foliage of stars-and waning heaven-stillness-and
    stillness deeper-stillness of annihilation-and her voice.

    Unreadiness. A bare apartment. Torbid daylight. A long black piano: coffin of
    music. Poised on its edge a woman’s hat, red-flowered, and umbrella, furled. Her
    arms: a casque, gules, and blunt spear on a field, sable.

    Envoy: Love me, love my umbrella.

    Invites you

    to its Thursday, 30 January 2020, Program

    James Ramey, Professor of Humanities,
    Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Mexico City, Mexico
    on "James Joyce and the Posthumanist Reader"
    (see notes below)

    and

    Group Discussion of Finnegans Wake 57:4-29
    Facilitated by Alison Armstrong
    School of Visual Arts
    Contr. ed. Irish Literary Supplement
    (see text below)


    at Glucksman Ireland House,
    New York University, 1 Washington Mews
    (5th Ave. bet Washington Square N and 8th St)
    The meeting will start promptly at 6:00 P.M.


    Notes: In What is Posthumanism?, Cary Wolfe advances a melding of Jacques Derrida's work with that of Niklas Luhmann. It is true that there have been numerous other proposed theorizations of how the enmeshing of human beings in their biological and technological milieus has given rise to a posthuman condition (e.g., Michel Serres, Katherine Hayles, Bernard Stiegler, and David Wills). However, Wolfe makes a valuable contribution in arguing that what Derrida and Luhmann most have in common is a "mutational, viral, or parasitic form of thinking," one that does not "turn away from the complexities and paradoxes of self-referential autopoiesis", but rather encounters there what Wolfe posits as "openness from closure," an idea which in turn emphasizes a notion of "boundary" found in both Luhmann and Derrida: "the very thing that separates us from the world connects us to the world, and self-referential, autopoietic closure, far from indicating a kind of solipsistic neo-Kantian idealism, actually is generative of openness to the environment". In other words, only through the parasite of paradoxical thought can we understand the permeability of all boundaries: what blinds us gives us sight, what separates us connects us, what closes us opens us. And yet, I wish to suggest that for all its theoretical rigor and originality, Wolfe's book does not offer much in the way of readerly methodology. Moreover, Wolfe omits reference to Luhmann's overt appropriation of Derrida's thought in developing his theory of observing systems in Art as a Social System: "second- and third-order observations explicate the world´s unobservability as an unmarked space carried along in all observations. Transparency is paid for with opacity, and this is what ensures the (autopoietic) continuation of the operations, the displacement, the différance (Derrida) of the difference between what is observed and what remains unobserved." This paper will experiment with Luhmann's observation theory to propose a critical methodology for what I will call 'close observing' of literary texts; close observing, over and against 'close reading', is possible only for what Luhmann describes as observers of the second and third orders.

    Professor Ramey has published articles on James Joyce in journals including James Joyce Quarterly, Comparative Literature, College Literature, and Comparative Literature Studies. He served as lead organizer of "Joyce Without Borders - 2019 James Joyce Symposium" in Mexico City, and is currently writing a book called Micro-Modernism: Parasitic Textuality and Posthumanism, a study of posthumanist intertextuality in works by James Joyce, Jorge Luis Borges, Vladimir Nabokov and Luis Buñuel.

    From Ulysses 8:551-585

    01    He crossed at Nassau street corner and stood before the window of
    02  Yeates and Son, pricing the fieldglasses. Or will I drop into old Harris's and
    03  have a chat with young Sinclair? Wellmannered fellow. Probably at his
    04  lunch. Must get those old glasses of mine set right. Goerz lenses six guineas.
    05  Germans making their way everywhere. Sell on easy terms to capture trade.
    06  Undercutting. Might chance on a pair in the railway lost property office.
    07  Astonishing the things people leave behind them in trains and cloakrooms.
    08  What do they be thinking about? Women too. Incredible. Last year
    09  travelling to Ennis had to pick up that farmer's daughter's bag and hand it
    10  to her at Limerick junction. Unclaimed money too. There's a little watch up
    11  there on the roof of the bank to test those glasses by.
    12   His lids came down on the lower rims of his irides. Can't see it. If you
    13  imagine it's there you can almost see it. Can't see it.
    14   He faced about and, standing between the awnings, held out his right
    15  hand at arm's length towards the sun. Wanted to try that often. Yes:
    16  completely. The tip of his little finger blotted out the sun's disk. Must be the
    17  focus where the rays cross. If I had black glasses. Interesting. There was a
    18  lot of talk about those sunspots when we were in Lombard street west.
    19  Looking up from the back garden. Terrific explosions they are. There will
    20  be a total eclipse this year: autumn some time.
    21   Now that I come to think of it that ball falls at Greenwich time. It's
    22  the clock is worked by an electric wire from Dunsink. Must go out there
    23  some first Saturday of the month. If I could get an introduction to professor
    24  Joly or learn up something about his family. That would do to: man always
    25  feels complimented. Flattery where least expected. Nobleman proud to be
    26  descended from some king's mistress. His foremother. Lay it on with a
    27  trowel. Cap in hand goes through the land. Not go in and blurt out what
    28  you know you're not to: what's parallax? Show this gentleman the door.
    29    Ah.
    30    His hand fell to his side again.
    31   Never know anything about it. Waste of time. Gasballs spinning
    32  about, crossing each other, passing. Same old dingdong always. Gas: then
    33  solid: then world: then cold: then dead shell drifting around, frozen rock,
    35  like that pineapple rock. The moon. Must be a new moon out, she said. I
    35  believe there is.

    1 He travels after a winter sun
    2 Urging the cattle along a cold red road,
    3 Calling to them, a voice they know,
    4 He drives his beasts above Cabra.

    6 The voice tells them home is warm.
    7 They moo and make brute music with their hoofs.
    8 He drives them with a flowering branch before him,
    9 Smoke pluming their foreheads.

    13 I bleed by the black stream
    14 For my torn bough!

    Group Discussion facilitated by
    Patrick Reilly
    Adjunct Assistant Professor of English
    Baruch College

    On the anniversary of Joyce's birthday, February 2nd, 1882, it might be a good time to revisit the mysterious birth of his most famous female character, Molly Bloom--Marion Tweedy, before she is married. Conceived on December 8th, 1869, the feast of the Immaculate Conception, Marion is born nine months later on September 8th, 1870, in Gibraltar to two of the most mysterious parents in fiction. Is she, like her immortal namesake, also conceived immaculately? Neither she nor we know anything substantial about her mother:"my mother whoever she was" was possibly one Lunita Laredo (18.846-47, 848). Her father, Major Brian Cooper Tweedy, is not prepared to say. He himself is a suspect character -- possibly a Sergeant Major, maybe a Major, or a Drum Major in the Royal Dublin Fusiliers (albeit the regiment did not exist before 1881, by when Marion/Molly is 11). Does the novel harbor Lunita clues, or is this simply one of the many "enigmas and puzzles that will keep the professors busy for centuries"?

    Little Review’s publication in 1920 of an excerpt from Joyce’s novel
    and that he might have been successful if he had used
    the approach suggested by the portrait painter John Butler Yeats,
    the poet’s father and famous intellectual of his time.

    James Joyce, Night Piece

    Gaunt in gloom,
    The pale stars their torches,
    Enshrouded, wave.
    Ghostfires from heaven's far verges faint illume,
    Arches on soaring arches,
    Night's sindark nave.

    Seraphim,
    The lost hosts awaken
    To service till
    In moonless gloom each lapses muted, dim,
    Raised when she has and shaken
    Her thurible.

    And long and loud,
    To night's nave upsoaring,
    A starknell tolls
    As the bleak incense surges, cloud on cloud,
    Voidward from the adoring
    Waste of souls.

    LI actor/director Ed Dennehy
    stars in Joseph Beck's James Joyce: For All Those Who Hide Away ...

    Oct. 31 - Nov. 16 (Fri & Sat at 7, Sun at 3)
    at the Conklin Barn, 2 High Street, Huntington, NY.

    Actor/director Ed Dennehy (brother of Brian now on Broadway with Carol Burnett)
    In a new one-man play as James Joyce.

    Author Joseph Beck: "Ed has played Mark Twain all around the country and has played
    Clarence Darrow, the defense attorney in the scopes trial. He even played an elderly
    Bette Davis after his wife shaved his legs for him. Ed's a force on the stagev
    and has been for 50 years. Classically trained in England, he's coming to
    this show with everything he has. We open Halloween night in a 200 year old
    converted sheep barn in historic Huntington, LI. People have done shows about
    James Joyce's work (Dubliners, Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses,
    and Finnegans Wake) but nobody has recently done the writer-live, on stage."

    William Humble, earl of Dudley, and lady Dudley, accompanied by lieutenantcolonel Heseltine, drove out after luncheon from the viceregal lodge. In the following carriage were the honourable Mrs Paget, Miss de Courcy and the honourable Gerald Ward A. D. C. in attendance.

    The cavalcade passed out by the lower gate of Phoenix park saluted by obsequious policemen and proceeded past Kingsbridge along the northern quays. The viceroy was most cordially greeted on his way through the metropolis. At Bloody bridge Mr Thomas Kernan beyond the river greeted him vainly from afar. . . .
    [L]ord Dudley's viceregal carriages passed and were unsaluted by Mr Dudley White, B. L., M. A. . . .
    Richie Goulding . . .
    saw him with surprise. . . .
    [A]t the doorstep of the office of Reuben J Dodd, solicitor, . . . ,
    an elderly female . . . smiled credulously on the representative of His Majesty. From its sluice in Wood quay wall under Tom Devan's office Poddle river hung out in fealty a tongue of liquid sewage. Above the crossblind of the Ormond hotel, gold by bronze, Miss Kennedy's head by Miss Douce's head watched and admired. On Ormond quay Mr Simon Dedalus . . .
    stood still in midstreet and brought his hat low. His Excellency graciously returned Mr Dedalus' greeting. From Cahill's corner the reverend Hugh C. Love, M. A., made obeisance unperceived, mindful of lords deputies whose hands benignant had held of yore rich advowsons. On Grattan bridge Lenehan and M'Coy, taking leave of each other, watched the carriages go by. . . .
    Gerty MacDowell . . .
    knew by the style it was the lord and lady lieutenant but she couldn't see what Her Excellency had on. . . .
    John Wyse Nolan smiled with unseen coldness towards the lord lieutenantgeneral and general governor of Ireland. . . .
    Over against Dame gate Tom Rochford and Nosey Flynn watched the approach of the cavalcade. Tom Rochford, seeing the eyes of lady Dudley fixed on him, took his thumbs quickly out of the pockets of his claret waistcoat and doffed his cap to her. A charming soubrette, great Marie Kendall, with dauby cheeks and lifted skirt smiled daubily from her poster upon William Humble, earl of Dudley, and upon lieutenantcolonel H. G. Heseltine, and also upon the honourable Gerald Ward A. D. C. From the window of the D. B. C. Buck Mulligan gaily, and Haines gravely, gazed down on the viceregal equipage over the shoulders of eager guests, whose mass of forms darkened the chessboard whereon John Howard Parnell looked intently. . . .
    Dilly Dedalus, training her sight upward from Chardenal's first French primer, saw sunshades spanned and wheelspokes spinning in the glare. John Henry Menton . . .
    stared from winebig oyster eyes. . . .
    Where the foreleg of King Billy's horse pawed the air Mrs Breen plucked her hastening husband back from under the hoofs of the outriders. She shouted in his ear the tidings. Understanding, he shifted his tomes to his left breast and saluted the second carriage. The honourable Gerald Ward A. D. C., agreeably surprised, made haste to reply. . . .
    Opposite Pigott's music warerooms Mr Denis J Maginni, professor of dancing &c, gaily apparelled, gravely walked, outpassed by a viceroy and unobserved. By the provost's wall came jauntily Blazes Boylan, stepping in tan shoes and socks with skyblue clocks to the refrain of My girl's a Yorkshire girl. Blazes Boylan presented to the leaders' skyblue frontlets and high action a skyblue tie, a widebrimmed straw hat at a rakish angle and a suit of indigo serge. His hands in his jacket pockets forgot to salute but he offered to the three ladies the bold admiration of his eyes and the red flower between his lips. . . .
    Striding past Finn's hotel Cashel Boyle O'Connor Fitzmaurice Tisdall Farrell stared through a fierce eyeglass across the carriages at the head of Mr M. E. Solomons in the window of the Austro-Hungarian viceconsulate. . . .
    [B]y Trinity's postern a loyal king's man, Hornblower, touched his tallyho cap. As the glossy horses pranced by Merrion square Master Patrick Aloysius Dignam, waiting, saw salutes being given to the gent with the topper and raised also his new black cap with fingers greased by porksteak paper. His collar too sprang up. . . .
    In Lower Mount street a pedestrian in a brown macintosh, eating dry bread, passed swiftly and unscathed across the viceroy's path. . . .
    At Haddington road corner two sanded women halted themselves, an umbrella and a bag in which eleven cockles rolled to view with wonder the lord mayor and lady mayoress without his golden chain. On Northumberland and Lansdowne roads His Excellency acknowledged punctually salutes from rare male walkers, the salute of two small schoolboys . . .
    and the salute of Almidano Artifoni's sturdy trousers swallowed by a closing door. (U 10:1176-1282)

    Stephen watching this young priest and Emma together usually worked
    himself into a state of unsettled rage. It was not so much that he
    suffered personally as that the spectacle seemed to him typical of
    Irish ineffectualness. Often he felt his fingers itch. Father Moran's
    eyes were so clear and tender-looking, Emma stood to his gaze in such
    a poise of bold careless pride of the flesh that Stephen longed to
    precipitate the two into each other's arms and shock the room even
    though he knew the pain this impersonal generosity would cause
    himself. Emma allowed him to see her home several times but she did
    not seem to have reserved herself for him. The youth was piqued at
    this for above all things he hated to be compared with others and, had
    it not been that her body seemed so compact of pleasure, he would have
    preferred to have been ignominiously left behind Her loud forced
    manners shocked him at first until his mind had thoroughly mastered
    the stupidity of hers. She criticised the Miss Daniels very sharply,
    assuming, much to Stephen's discomfort, an identical temper in him.
    She coquetted with knowledge, asking Stephen could he not persuade the
    President of his College to admit women to the college. Stephen told
    her to apply to McCann who was the champion of women. She laughed at
    this and said with genuine dismay "Well, honestly, isn't he a
    dreadful-looking artist?" She treated femininely everything that young
    men are supposed to regard as serious but she made polite exception
    for Stephen himself and for the Gaelic Revival. She asked him wasn't
    he reading a paper and what was it on. She would give anything to go
    and hear him: she was awfully fond of the theatre herself and a gypsy
    woman had once read her hand and told her she would be an actress. She
    had been three times to the pantomime and asked Stephen what he liked
    best in pantomime. Stephen said he liked a good clown but she said
    that she preferred ballets. Then she wanted to know did he go out much
    to dances and pressed him to join an Irish dancing-class of which she
    was a member. Her eyes had begun to imitate the expression of Father
    Moran's -- an expression of tender significance when the conversation
    was at the lowest level of banality. Often as he walked beside her
    Stephen wondered how she had employed her time since he had last seen
    her and he congratulated himself that he had caught an impression of
    her when she was at her finest moment. In his heart he deplored the
    change in her for he would have liked nothing so well as an adventure
    with her now but he felt that even that warm ample body could hardly
    compensate him for her distressing pertness and middle-class
    affectations. In the centre of her attitude towards him he thought he
    discerned a point of defiant illwill and he thought he understood the
    cause of it. He had swept the moment into his memory, the figure and
    the landscape into his treasure-room, and conjuring with all three had
    brought forth some pages of sorry verse. One rainy night when the
    streets were too bad for walking she took the Rathmines tram at the
    Pillar and as she held down her hand to him from the step, thanking
    him for his kindness and wishing him good-night, that episode of their
    childhood seemed to magnetise the minds of both at the same instant.
    The change of circumstances had reversed their positions, giving her
    the upper hand. He took her hand caressingly, caressing one after
    another the three lines on the a back of her kid glove and numbering
    her knuckles, caressing also his own past towards which this
    inconsistent hater of [antiquity] inheritances was always lenient.
    They smiled at each other; and again in the centre of her amiableness
    he discerned a [centre] point of illwill and he suspected that by her
    code of honour she was obliged to insist on the forbearance of the
    male and to despise him for forbearing. (pp. 60-68)

    The James Joyce Society
    invites you to hear
    "The Exile of James Joyce"
    by Michael Patrick Gillespie
    Professor of English
    Florida International University
    at The Roger Smith Hotel
    501 Lexington Ave. at 47th Street
    New York City
    Thursday, 22 April 2010
    at 6:00 PM
    at the Roger Smith Hotel
    Lexington Ave at 47th St
    New York City


    "The Exile of James Joyce" suggests that both nostalgia and rancor
    operate throughout Joyce's canon, and it focuses attention on Dubliners
    to show that previous readings while effectively showing the anger Joyce
    felt at the Dublin he left behind have not given sufficient attention to
    his attachment to Ireland.
