Thomas Moore and Finnegans Wake

The names of all the original airs of all of Thomas Moores melodies are in FW. Moore arrived in Bermuda in 1804 and wrote of its beauty

Oh! could you view the scenery dear
That now beneath my window lies.

FW and the Book of Kells

James Joyce used many models for the development of Finnegans Wake, one of them is the book of Kells. You see in this particular section, the Tunc page both underlying structure and spirals of detail. This is the same for FW, which does have an underlying structure (I just havnt been able to find it just yet and many accretions of detail.

Finnegans Wake in Bermuda

Return to the Wake

After some time away from FW I have started weaving my way back into it again. Lets try again shall we? just wondering if there is anyone else in Bermuda that have an interest in this work of James Joyce written during the last 16 years of his life. If your out there (particulartly in BDA) let me know.
