A few bloggers have been kind enough to link to this site recently, so I thought I should acknowledge and thank them all. It feels great to find out that people somewhere are seeing this stuff and getting something out of it. So thanks to:

Weaver of the Wind
A Piece of Monologue
An und für sich
Daniel Silliman

In addition, I’d like to offer a warm “Dank u wel” to De Contrabas, “Merci bien” to riverrun.free.fr, and “Ευχαριστώ” to In Someone Else’s Dream. It’s weird enough for a native English speaker to be interested in Finnegans Wake. For a foreigner it’s close to miraculous. (That was my assumption, anyway. But I should say that I was reading FW on the bus here in Paris a few months ago, and a middle-aged woman sitting across from me asked how I was finding it, and admitted to giving up on the French translation many years ago. Would that ever happen in London?)

Because I’m a shameless ingrate, I completely neglected to acknowledge the kind words of Matt Kish, of the fantastic Moby Dick project, several months ago, as well as those of Jeffrey Meyer, who produces the most incredible collages I’ve ever seen.


Additional thanks to writinglounge.blogspot.com, Issa’s Untidy Hut and Ron Silliman!

Anything that makes Finnegans Wake easier to grasp has to be a good thing :-) Good luck!

you know, I was reading the skeleton Key to FW on the bus a few months too! A guy came up to me and said "Finnegans Wake... cool!"thought I'd share that with you.

Stephen Crowe said...

Cool project! I linked it to my blog The New Post-Literate. I recently started reading Wake for a second time. I'm getting more out of it this time around. Keep up the good work!
