The very good fantastic thing about Helen of Troy is famous. yet a few say that Helen used to be by no means in Troy, that she were conveyed through Zeus to Egypt, and that Greeks and Trojans alike fought for an phantasm.

D. wove her book-length poem. but Helen in Egypt isn't an easy retelling of the Egyptian legend yet a activity of the various myths surrounding Helen, Paris, Achilles, Theseus, and different figures of Greek culture, fused with the mysteries of Egyptian hermeticism.

"Avec los angeles découverte récente de quelques pages de brouillons égarées, c’est le chaînon manquant entre Ulysse et Finnegans Wake qui a été mis au jour.
Pour se relancer alors qu’il traversait une période d'incertitude, Joyce s’est mis à écrire de curieuses vignettes sur des thèmes irlandais. Ces petits textes, apparemment simplistes, sont les germes de ce qui deviendra le plus complexe des chefs-d’œuvre du vingtième siècle.
Nous publions ici pour los angeles première fois, dans los angeles langue originale et en traduction française, le cœur de cet ensemble qui s’organise autour de l. a. légende de Tristan et Iseult et notamment du most popular baiser des deux amants. Joyce s’efforce de décrire, dans une veine tantôt ugly, tantôt lyrique, ce baiser, présenté aussi bien comme un événement cosmique que comme un flirt sordide. L’étreinte se déroule sous le regard libidineux de quatre voyeurs séniles, dont les divagations donneront le ton et fixeront le type de Finnegans Wake.
Ces textes nous révèlent un element inattendu de l. a. démarche créative de Joyce et offrent une voie d’accès à qui voudrait commencer à s’aventurer dans l’univers si intimidant de sa dernière œuvre."
