Brouillons d'un baiser: Premiers pas vers Finnegans Wake by James Joyce

By James Joyce

Variation interactive bilingue Français/Anglais.

"Avec los angeles découverte récente de quelques pages de brouillons égarées, c’est le chaînon manquant entre Ulysse et Finnegans Wake qui a été mis au jour.

Pour se relancer alors qu’il traversait une période d'incertitude, Joyce s’est mis à écrire de curieuses vignettes sur des thèmes irlandais. Ces petits textes, apparemment simplistes, sont les germes de ce qui deviendra le plus complexe des chefs-d’œuvre du vingtième siècle.

Nous publions ici pour l. a. première fois, dans l. a. langue originale et en traduction française, le cœur de cet ensemble qui s’organise autour de los angeles légende de Tristan et Iseult et notamment du optimum baiser des deux amants. Joyce s’efforce de décrire, dans une veine tantôt gruesome, tantôt lyrique, ce baiser, présenté aussi bien comme un événement cosmique que comme un flirt sordide. L’étreinte se déroule sous le regard libidineux de quatre voyeurs séniles, dont les divagations donneront le ton et fixeront le kind de Finnegans Wake.

Ces textes nous révèlent un point inattendu de los angeles démarche créative de Joyce et offrent une voie d’accès à qui voudrait commencer à s’aventurer dans l’univers si intimidant de sa dernière œuvre."

Theirs was a world of cocktails, dark glasses, high dives and dinner suits, new fashions for sunbathing and callisthenics imported from the South of France. The Midland Hotel was a temple to all of these new ideals for living. The railway company had requested of Hill ‘A building of international quality in the modern style’ and Hill himself wrote that ‘you have here a unique opportunity of building the first really modern hotel in the country’.
