He made his family speak German while they lived in Zurich, and his children even went to school there. His grave is in Zurich too. The 17 years he put into the writing of the 17 chapters of Finnegans Wake made use of almost 4, German words and.
This new of Bonheim s Lexicon tags the full FW text to his list. The author himself discussed in his Preface the importance of the larger context for anyone who tries to understand how and why Joyce turned to Svenskt guld med loftesrik unghast. Following his idea, this re-issuing of the German Lexicon of FW offers the reader both a German key and an additional means of understanding Joyce s last and most difficult book.
It is difficult to see how it is possible to make a reader feel he is reading a text in over forty languages more or less at the same time. Why Joyce mixed them, and how he combined letters and sounds, so as to Svenskt guld med loftesrik unghast English, French, German, Romanian, and so many more languages at once is a complicated issue. Our insistence on Joyce s use of German lies in the fact that, of all the 40 languages used in the book, the German listing is by far the best and most accurate dictionary.
The contextualized grid we are offering now is in fact an invitation to the reader to purchase Helmut Bonheim s actual book and have it in his own hands. It is the result of a close friendship and cooperation with Fritz Senn, a Joyce scholar himself, and the creator of the famous Zurich James Joyce Foundation. We hope that our reprocessing of this German Lexicon will lead the reader to a renewed examination of Professor Bonheim s own book. Joyce s life ended in Zurich two years after the publication of.
It is conceivable that the ultimate meaning of this enigmatic text, which still remains silent in many ways, depends to a certain extent on the languages he spoke in that geographical area: George Sandulescu and Lidia Vianu.

This Lexicographic Series as a whole is primarily meant as teaching material for the larger half of Continental Europe, which, for practically three quarters of a century, was deprived of ready access to the experimental fiction and poetry of the world.
All Western literary criticism was also banned. Hence, the imperative necessity of re-issuing a considerable amount of post-war discussions.

Quite paradoxically, all Joyce lexicography points not so much to semantics, but rather to pragmatics especially Person, and Place, with ubiquity of Time.
That is the reason why the Dictionary of Persons Glasheenand the Dictionary of Places Mink have pride of place among the instruments of research into Finnegans Wake, by the side, of course, of Clive Hart s Concordance.
If we turn to The Forty Languages, it is clear that Bonheim s Dictionary of German Elements stands high among all the others, if there are any others worth the notice. It is a pity that O Hehir is "Svenskt guld med loftesrik unghast" very often off the mark in all his lexicography, and Christiani flatly refuses to separate the linguistic from the cultural. And though Joyce s main subject at the University was Italian, and he lived so many years in Italy, there is no dictionary of Italian in Finnegans Wake to match the size and precision of Bonheim s work.
And he continues, in his Variations sur un sujet: It is all to no avail because everybody Svenskt guld med loftesrik unghast everybody has gone electronic, having been fully hypnotized by the Internet, which. My whole Joyce "Svenskt guld med loftesrik unghast" series is in fact an ardent plea to all Joyce scholars, great and small, suffering from hormonis pausa or not, to purchase the actual books, which are the real instruments of research work, as livres de chevet.
It must be well understood that the Internet does not replace the books, but rather leads us on to them. And when it comes to instruments of research, rather than lax and flax cultural studies, the necessity of holding the physical working tools in one s own hands becomes absolute. Remember Wittgenstein and his plea for the value of the chest of tools! Anybody fully believing in the Internet as a goal in itself is a junior and an eternal undergraduate.
And unfortunately, many a senior professor is so de nos jours! I leaf through a book called The Joyce Companion, which, ideally is expressly meant to be some kind of instrument de travail. And I come across the following two statements:. In the extensive article entitled The Language of Finnegans Wake, it stands written: Louis Mink would certainly not agree with him at all about the rivers.
Nor Clive Hart either, who is a fluent reader of Swedish. In another equally extensive article, this time entitled Structures and Meanings of Finnegans Wake, it stands written: Burgess is not a professional scholar but a novelist who dabbles in Joyce criticism. And a "Svenskt guld med loftesrik unghast" further on, after a bash at Umberto Eco, we read: The poor chap is not exactly aware of the complex meaning of context, inside, or outside, lexicography! And I go one step further by saying that they declassify the whole bulky book of pages as a solid and genuine instrument de travail!
And that fact is particularly grave when that book is entitled A Companion to Joyce Studies, and is published by Greenwood Press in My reply to them is equally incisive and equally curt:. I name no names. I also remotely remember attending an international conference predominantly Germanic on Kitsch in Joyce. To accuse Anthony Burgess and Umberto Eco of being amateurishly superficial with regard to James Joyce is completely wrong.
Burgess has done more for James Joyce in two pages with his book Ninety-Nine Novels, The Best in English sincepublished inthan all the Joyce Symposia taken together since their inception, half a century ago. To say nothing of the half a dozen books of his entirely devoted to James Joyce. The Joyce community is vastly numerous, but relatively voiceless in comparison with him! He wrote a bad review of one of my books: I wrote a bad review of one of his books! So, we are quits.
Once for the academic activities, and the second time for the social activities, attached to it. In the two brief instances above discussed, it is the Joyce mafia mentality that raises its ugly head. Do not let yourself be influenced by it! Joyce studies have done far too little in making the general public understand precisely what Joyce is ultimately after in Finnegans Wake.
The problem is as fundamental for the Humanities as the central problems of Physics and Astrophysics in the exact sciences! Snow are both long gone.
The Sciences have indeed got vast funding how much has the world spent so far on bosons, charms q. Lending cogency to Finnegans Wake is indeed fundamental research, and that is what the Joyce Lexicography Series is trying to achieve in its modest way.
