Finnegans Wake, by James Joyce

May 30th, 2012, 6:07 am

'1132' is heavily overloaded.Quote1132 A.D. O'Hanlon, Life of St Laurence O'Toole II: "Laurence ... O'Toole was born in the year 1132". St Laurence O'Toole was the patron saint of Dublin ?¨ Henry II of England, who is often coupled with Laurence O'Toole in FW, was born in 1132 (actually 5 March 1133, but 25 March was observed then as New Year's Day) 1132: 1132 = 283 x 4. In the Annals of the Four Masters, the death of Finn MacCool is dated to 283 A.D. In Joyce's manuscripts Image:MMLJ.png is the siglum for the Four Old Men 1132 feet per second: the speed of sound in air 32 feet per second per second: acceleration due to gravity at the surface of the Earth, and therefore an integral part of the law of falling bodies ?¨ symbolic of the Fall of Man, it recurs throughout Ulysses as well as FW Romans 11:32: "For God has consigned all men to disobedience that he may show his mercy to all" 11: in the denary system of numbers, 11 represents the beginning of a new cycle Quote 566 A.D. At this time it fell out that a brazenlockt damsel grieved (sobralasolas!) because that Puppette her minion was ravisht of her by the ogre Puropeus Pious. Bloody wars in Ballyaughacleeaghbally1132. A.D. Two sons at an hour were born until a goodman and his hag. These sons called themselves Caddy and Primas. Primas was a santryman and drilled all decent people. Caddy went to Winehouse and wrote o peace a farce. Blotty words for Dublin. QuoteThe college curriculum. Cracking curriculum. What is weight really when you say the weight? Thirtytwo feet per second, per second. Law of falling bodies: per second, per second. They all fall to the ground. The earth. It's the force of gravity of the earth is the weight.

Finnegans Wake a Best-Seller in China "Reading Finnegans Wake is like looking at the sky, or the whole world," the novel's translator Dai Congrong told the newspaper. "It's like a garden in Suzhou, carefully arranged and selected." People like my fellow researcher Traden4Alpha will appreciate this remark.Good one, Dai!
