Two Significant Events in the Irish Lit World Happen This Week

1. Bloomsday is cancelled in Dublin! The death of former prime minister Charles Haughney required a state funeral on the big day.

2. Larry Lessig at Stanford files a lawsuit this week against Stephen Joyce, James Joyce’s grandson, who’s making life miserable for Joyce scholars. See the New Yorker article for a long review and analysis, or this small bit on one example of his craziness. (Hat tip: Chris Yeh)

And today I enjoy my last half day in Ireland and then board the train for Dublin airport. Fly into Brussels late tonight.

  • Just came from Europe. Porto Portugal was great. San Sebastian was all right–I’d take Bilbao over San Sebastian 10 times out of 10, though–Bilbao: great looking city, curious architecture, well-embedded transport, and of course, the Guggenheim.
