Loggione. James Joyce: Giacomo Joyce. Die Neuübersetzung (39).

Loggione. The sodden walls ooze a steamy damp. A symphony of small fuses the mass of huddled human forms: sour reek of armpits, nozzled oranges, melting breast ointments, mastick water, the breath of suppers of sulphurous garlic, foul phosphorescent farts, … Continue reading

Tirilieren vor Seligkeit. James Joyce: Giacomo Joyce. Die Neuübersetzung (36).

Operiert. James Joyce: Giacomo Joyce. Die Neuübersetzung (35)

Operated. The surgeon‘s knife has probed in her entrails and withdrawn, leaving the raw jagged gash of its passage on her belly. I see her full dark suffering eyes, beautiful as the eyes of an antilope. O cruel wound! Libidinous … Continue reading

She Walks before Me. James Joyce: Giacomo Joyce. Die Neuübersetzung (32).

I Expound Shakespeare. James Joyce: Giacomo Joyce. Die Neuübersetzung (31).

I expound Shakespeare to the docile Trieste: Hamlet, quoth I, who is most courteous to gentle and simple is rude only to Polonius. Perhaps, an embittered idealist, he can see in the parents of his beloved only grotesque attempts an … Continue reading

A Spring Morning at Paris. James Joyce: Giacomo Joyce. Die Neuübersetzung (30).

I play lightly. James Joyce: Giacomo Joyce. Die Neuübersetzung (29).

I play lightly, softly singing, John Dowland‘s languid song. Loth to depart: I too am loth to go. That age is here and know. Here, opening from the darkness of desire, are eyes that dim the breaking East, their shimmer … Continue reading
