Terence Killeen – Anna’s Adieu: The End of Finnegans Wake
December 3 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
The James Joyce Centre are delighted to welcome our very own Research Scholar and author of Ulysses Unbound Terence Killeen to present the Christmas talk.
The talk will explore the final 10 pages of Finnegans Wake, the monologue of Anna Livia as she approaches her end. Anna Livia is the personification of the river Liffey who, at the end of the book, passes out to the Irish Sea, merges with it and loses her own identity as a river. The lecture will describe the distinctive style of this section of the novel and outline what happens as Anna takes her leave of her husband Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker, who is also Dublin, her city, and heads for the open sea.
