Harmonies and Words

in the Pool of Time

  • Tutti soffrono all’idea di scomparire non visti e non uditi in un universo indifferente, e per questo vogliono, finché sono in tempo, trasformare se stessi nel proprio universo di parole. Milan Kundera

    Siamo ciò che siamo perché è quello che meritiamo di essere.

Assente perché

Posted by mnemosineeorfeo su settembre 28, 2008

Maggio e giugno sono stati mesi molto impegnativi. Sono stata in Francia due volte in un mese. Prima sono andata a Tours per 3 giorni e poi, prima di rimettermi sull’aereo per l’Italia, ho fatto un tour di 3 giorni nella magica Parigi. Tornata a Roma per 4 giorni sono ripartita per Lione e ho preso un treno per Vichy. Da Vichy, una squadra infaticabile di organizzatori e amanti di Joyce, ha portato me e gli altri compagni di viaggio a Saint-Gérand-le-Puy, un paesino nel cuore della Francia dove ho trovato il sole, tanto calore e tanta cordialità.

Queste sono pillole della mia esperienza “professionale” in Francia. Quella umana la racconterò in un altro post.

XXIst International James Joyce Symposium

Ulysses’s Journey in Joyce, Dallapiccola and Berio

Joyce’s influence over a range of music […] was largely conceptual.

[…] Joyce’s work influenced a wide range of composers of almost impossibly divergent aesthetic presuppositions. In part, this reflects the variety of Joyce’s writings.

[…] the more avant-garde musicians of the twentieth century were attracted to the formal innovations suggested by Joyce’s work, by his use in Ulysses of a variety of different styles, by the musicality of his language, particularly in the late and highly experimental Finnegans Wake.
Scott W. Klein

Le Jour d’Ulysse

Joyce et l’Italie

From 27th to 29th June 2008 the annual manifestation “Le Jour d’Ulysse” in the small French village of Saint-Gérand-le-Puy, near Vichy, took place. The event was organized by the CARMA Research Centre of Université Lumière Lyon 2 and Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3, in partnership with the city of Saint-Gérand-le-Puy. […]

The visit of the multimedia library “Valery Larbaud” in Vichy and of the places where Joyce stayed – among the others, Hotel de la Paix and Chateaux “La Chapelle” – enriched the meeting. That way,the participants were directly involved in a part, even though quite brief, of James Joyce’s latest and less known life.

This year, the conference focused on the relationships between James Joyce and Italy and several keynote international speakers were involved. […]

Joyce and Trieste

As we all know, Joyce left Ireland in order to establish himself as an artist, far away from the nets of religion, family and local politics, the too complicated conventions of his country.
Richard Ellmann in his biography of the Irish writer, pointed out how Joyce was struck by the city at his arrival and later, more recently, Peter Hartshorn, in James Joyce and Trieste, 1997, tells James Joyce and Nora’s journey to Europe with these words:

“In the fall of 1904, at the age of twenty-two, [Joyce] left Dublin for Switzerland in the mistaken belief that he had secured a teaching position in Zurich. He was sent on to Trieste where, excluding brief sojourns in Pola, Rome, and Dublin, he remained with his family until mid-1915.
Following his wartime stay in neutral Zurich, Joyce returned to Trieste for a period of eight months before moving in 1920 to France, where the publication of Ulysses secured for him the attention he sought, if not always the royalties”.

Six months after their arrival in Pola in October 1904, then, Joyce and Nora went to Trieste where they spent most of the next ten years.
