    To some degree yes but Mcluhan, characteristically, reads the Wake as an explication of his own theories, which seems unsatisfactory to me. RAW again is infinitely better.

    That Grapejuice guy reckons RAW's writing on Joyce is as interesting and worthwhile as Kenner's. Do you agree?

    Is Kenner that hot on Joyce? He changed my understanding of Pound but Joyce I dunno. ... RAW is at least as good and probably better

    i don't like reading this. i don't mind the language or the content, it's too private.

    They are real. He had a thing about Nora farting. There's a good one about him wanting to watch her do a shit in a cupboard or something.

    I wonder if Joyce came by his coprophilia via Rabelais or whether it was simply Catholicism?

    It's a bit of a shame they're public, really, it's just fuel for detractors (though I suppose he's more or less unassailable by now).

    There's always someone who thinks they're really clever saying the love letters are his finest work.

    The correspondence with his daughter was destroyed leading to speculation of an incestuous relationship and the transference of syphilis, the syphilis which sent her mad and him blind.

    The wake is full of references to incest (and it Freudian twist into insects. Earwigger.(

    Hopefully that isn't true, but wouldn't surprise me. Apparently he took her to see Jung at one point, but I'd heard she was schizophrenic rather than suffering from syphilis.
