7.16 "mailcars"

cf USA 1903 [RealVid]

7.59 "Co-ome thou lost"

M'appari [Caruso RealAud] ditto





7.237 "MacHugh"

based on Hugh MacNeill, whom Curran suggests may have been J's Latin prof at UC [cpc61] but [hg55] disagrees (O'Nowlan and Semple)


7.325 "forgot Hamlet"

Gifford says McHugh is somehow referring to this particular Shakespearean bombast (which makes no mention of the moon?): "But, look, the morn, in russet mantle clad,/ Walks o'er the dew of yon high eastward hill" [etext] Schutte in Joyce and Shakespeare pleads ignorance on this one.

the Philly MS has "The moon... He forgot the moon."



7.359 "North Cork"

posting: [password] ditto ditto ditto [query]

7.391 "newsboys"

cf 1903 NY World RealVideo

7.427 "boys of Wexford"

[lyrics] ditto

7.455 "Oval"



7.479 "fat"

posting: [password] [query]

7.486 "imperial, imperious, imperative"

cf Stephen Hero p101, 'Whelan' defending Greek art



7.582 "Joe Miller"

posting: [password]


7.621 "Put us all into it"

the Dublin literary crowd had a pretty solid tradition of writing (and gossiping) about each other, so Joyce's works were just taking this tradition to a much deeper level of honesty, and turning his attention from the 'stars' (eg Yeats, Moore, Russell) to the ordinary

7.632 "That was in eightyone, sixth of May"

Rose 'corrects' this to 'eightytwo' [Senn]

the year-off motif [more]

Phoenix Park murders: [narrative]



7.750 "porches"

cf Hamlet [etext]


7.785 "yankee interviewer"

identified by Kain as Cornelius Weygandt [Bibliofind]

7.806 "contumely"

cf Hamlet [etext]


7.826 "shellfish"

posting: [password] [query]

7.830 "transported"

WB Yeats had cited the same address, delivered in October 1901, in a 1916 memoir [wbya101] probably read by JAJ: "I am carried to another age, a nobler society, and another Lord Chancellor is speaking. I am at the Court of the first Pharaoh... 'If you have any spirituality as you boast, why not use our great empire to spread it through the world, why still cling to that beggarly nationality of yours? What are its history and its works weighed with those of Egypt?' ...I see a man at the edge of the crowd; he is standing listening there, but he will not obey... had he obeyed he would never have come down the mountain carrying in his arms the Tables of the Law in the language of the outlaw."

JF Taylor was Yeats' lifelong nemesis in debate.

7.835 "crooked smokes"

Cymbeline [etext]


7.881 "Miles of ears of porches"

Rose 'corrects' this to 'porches of ears' [Senn]


7.951 "crubeen"



7.969 "Rathmines"

[old pic]


7.1018 "onehandled"
