Format: pdf Bacon Map 39Mb zip OS 6-inch Map — Revised in this shopworn and hand-coloured map still offers far greater detail and accuracy over the Bacon and Thom's maps. This copy is one that had been used to create one of the early microfiche versions of the directory.
For this digital version the original pages were scanned anew in colour at dpi. This has provided a limited text search ability, which is useful, but due to the difficult nature of the text this has severe limitations which can be seen if you copy and paste a section of text.

Format: pdf FWC This was the edition that first introduced the young James Joyce to the Odyssey and the character Ulysses. Yesterday the eternal female was Molly Bloom; today it is Anna Livia Plurabelle; tomorrow it may be her daughter Isabel.
Like The Divine Comedy the Wake is patterned on many levels, some of which contradict each other. He also used coincidences which take the form of puns and numbers. When he wrote Ulysses three had been the most important number; now, with the help of Vico and a young man named Samuel Beckett, he had concluded that four and twelve were the most important numbers, and he used them as mortar in the construction of the Wake: Its protagonists, the family of a Dublin innkeeper, are clearly set forth.
His wife Anna Livia Plurabelle typifies the womanly qualities of beauty and transience. So mythicized is she that she seems older than Eve and Joyce makes us wonder who came first. Unlike Leopold and Molly, Humphrey and Anna have so lost their individuality that they become interchangeable with natural phenomena, with the Hill of Howth outside Dublin and the River Liffey which flows through Dublin.
Shem is the artist, a self-absorbed and hostile creature whose lust for solitary greatness brings us to mind of Stephen Dedalus. The most important is the yang and yin of Humphrey and Anna, and there is a sense in which they are the only real characters, since their daughter is what Anna was and Shem and Shaun represent the two contrasting natures of their father and act out his latent schizophrenia. Shem is the unconscious mind and represents the feminine aspects of space, art, and night, while Shaun is the conscious mind and represents the masculine aspects of time, politics, and day.
In the second version of the story, in the sixth chapter of Book One, we note the presence of an elm tree and a stone at the riverbank which are the metamorphosed washerwomen of two chapters later and conclude that the contemporary story of the washerwomen took place before the ancient-sounding tale of the prankquean.
Tell me every tiny teign. I want to know every single ingul. They are rooted as a tree and a stone to the riverbank which is how they appear to Isabel before she drowns, but they are also in another sense Shem and Shaun in a rare display of fraternity. And after that she wove a garland for her hair.
She pleated it. She plaited it. Of meadowgrass and riverflags, the bulrush and waterweed, and of fallen griefs of weeping willow. I think of that situation as the result of a confused monism, but it is given ideal setting in the dream world where everything tends toward the one and where the dreamer encounters the universal in the particular and all humanity in one human being.
Stephen meant the same thing in Ulysses when he quoted Maeterlinck to the effect that when we go forth into the world we encounter ourselves in all the people we meet.
For Dante the universe was a chain of being whose unity needed to be realized, and the opposites Francis and Dominic, Aquinas and Siger, Bonaventure and Joachim find themselves together on the same planet. Joyce makes opposites become indistinguishable. When Bloom enters the brothel in Ulysses, Stephen recognizes him as himself, and throughout the chapter their consciousnesses converge. In Finnegans Wake St.
Patrick and the druid, the conqueror and the conquered, Shaun and Shem, and Humphrey and Anna are one. It has been theorized that its sequel would have completely left the realm of matter for that of spirit and would have stated even more clearly that everything is one, that this Dublin family, those two washerwomen, those four old men whom we whimsically liken to the four evangelists are really manifestations of that unity which for the sake of convenience we will call God.
So consistent was Joyce with his monism that he becomes androgynous. There is no personal resurrection in Joyce but rather an ambiguous collective immortality in which someone like Anna Livia is replaced by her daughter. Pantheism sees death and resurrection as illusions.
One can think of the statement in the Katha Upanishad: Resurrection is less important to the Wake than the fact that it is a Scholastic exercise in which all reality is thought of as existing in concentric circles like tree rings. The medieval artist, when he drew twenty or thirty circles with Christ, Augustine, and Aquinas around them, thought he had encapsulated the world, but in real life there are an infinite number of circles, and when man tries to understand all of them he becomes unintelligible and irrational as Joyce is in his last novel which is a heroic and astonishingly lyrical example of this futility, an example which, while it does not show us the translucent beauty of the world at dawn as Dante would have, gives us the night after a thunderstorm when the lights begin turning off in the houses and the rain still drips from the roofs.
