Making Multiple: James Joyce's Finnegans Wake

Making Multiple: James Joyce's Finnegans Wake

James Joyce started writing Finnegans Wake in 1922, a few months after Ulysses was published. The first passage he wrote was a short comic piece about the last of the Irish kings, Roderick O’Conor, who is described drinking leftovers and falling over. He then appears to turn into a brewery barge which sails away down the Liffey and out to sea. The idea of a fall would become central to Finnegans Wake as would the principle of metempsychosis, whereby characters merge into things, or one another, or parts of the landscape. The book is ambitious in its remit: it is about night and dream, but also about the evolution of human society through cycles of generation, about change and consistency over time. Ultimately, the simple comedy and the large-scale ideas emerge from the Wake’s greatest innovation: the rich density of its words, resonant with the challenge and exuberance of multiplicity.

Tell us about your internship: what department do you specialise in and what kind of duties are involved?

My internship is based in the events department for the trading company so I deal with all the corperate matters and the weddings to help supplement and give extra money to charities. I specialise in event delivery, coordination, taking on all the admin side of things, posting, dealing with any problems that may arise during the event. I assist in the creation of weddings, give ideas and tours of the spaces we have to offer. I also help in the sales-type of things, after a tour I will follow on from that and take the lead.
