James Joyce, Irish novelist, noted for his experimental use of language in such works as Ulysses and Finnegans Wake Joyce's technical innovations in the art of the novel include an extensive use of interior monologue; he used a complex network of symbolic parallels drawn from the mythology, history, and literature, and created a unique language of invented words, puns, and allusions.

10 thoughts on “Collected Poems

    Every few years I reread this slender volume of Joyce’s verse, each time enjoying its craft and familiarity. Known far more as a prose writer than as a poet, Joyce nonetheless always wrote with poetic power. Those who are unfamiliar with his poems might be surprised by their formal conventionality. He is not one to eschew rhyme and meter, and the subject matter and treatment are not obscure. This volume contains poems in three groups: “Chamber Music”; “Poems Penyeach”; and, “Ecce Puer.” The last is a single poem, and the first grouping is the largest, containing thirty-six short lyrics. It is this group that I find most moving and interesting. Most are gentle and sensitive, focusing on a single episode or mood, an example being XVII:

    “Because your voice was at my side
    I gave him pain,
    Because within my hand I held
    Your hand again.

    There is no word nor any sign
    Can make amend –
    He is a stranger to me now
    Who was my friend.”

    Enjoyable in their own right, Joyce’s poems are also important in showing another side of this important author, providing not only another view of his wide and deep talent but also opening another window upon him as a person. The entire book can be easily read in well under two hours, and I recommend it.

    This probably would not have survived if it wasn't Joyce who wrote it but it's still a comfy curiosity you can finish over the course of a single cup of tea while hungover.

    Joyce was 40 yrs old when Ulysses was published, it is a day in the life of a husband and father of Joyce's age (at publication). Joyce loved Dublin and Ireland and though the book was written on the European continent - he wanted to memorialize his birth home (Ireland). The framework of Ulysses is Homer's Odyssey - The Roman Ulysses: 1 Telemachus, 2 Nestor, 3 Proteus, 4 Calypso, 5 Lotus Eaters, 6 Hades, 7 Aeolus, 8 Lestrygonians, 9 Scylla And Charybdis, 10 Wandering Rocks, 11 Sirens, 12 Cyclops, 13 Nausicca, 14 Oxen Of The Sun, 15 Circe, 16 Eumaeus, 17 Ithaca, and 18 Penelope.

    Ulysses is the tale of a Modern-day Odysseus, Leopold Bloom in his personal existential/sexual quest. The conclusion of this quest is the quintessential affirmation of humanity, the fundamental family unit - the father, mother, son, and daughter. Like Odysseus, absent from Penelope, traveling the world, for many long years, Leopold Bloom is also absent from his Penelope (in Dublin). Like a traveler (Odysseus), Bloom is sexually absent (abstinent) from Molly “10 years, 5 months and 18 days” (736). Unlike Odysseus, the obstacles Bloom faces are psychological (modern) - internal travails instead of Odysseus' external travails. Bloom's only son’s death has become a psychological barrier; as Molly reflects: “we were never the same since” (778). Yet Bloom is optimistic throughout the work - in regard to the possibility of another child, again Molly: ”Ill give him one more chance” (780). Affirmatively (as we grow to know Molly) we find she has given and is willing to continue to give Bloom “one more chance”. Through the course of the (Dublin) day, Bloom experiences “deep frustration, humiliation, fear, punishment and catharsis” (Herring, p.74). Bloom needs to lead himself back, out of self-deception, fantasy, and frustration to Molly’s (and his marriage) bed.

    Bloom’s travails come in the Circe chapter and it is imperative (for Joyce) that as readers, we recognize Joyce’s change from Homer's Odyssey - this is Joyce's major rework, deviating from his Greek predecessor. For Odysseus: insight, understanding, enlightenment, and all importantly direction come to Odysseus in his journey to the (ancient Greek) Underworld. For Bloom, the Hades chapter or “the other world” represents an “emptiness of mind”; Joyce was a man grounded (and devoted) to the present world of man's consciousness and unconsciousness. In Ulysses enlightenment comes in the Circe chapter: described though the Joycean technique of hallucination or the discoveries of the unconscious mind”. Joyce's Circe chapter (a surrealistic one-act Ibsen-like play) is where Bloom finds self-possession - (Joyce makes) Bloom encounter his own psycho-sexual existential questions, rather than finding life's answers in the dead ghosts of his life (the ancient Greek Hades chapter of the dead past).

    In the Circe chapter, Bloom confronts and overcomes every major obstacle in his existential/sexual quest: the Molly he serves in Calypso reappears as Bello the whoremistress, Molly’s letter from Boylan and his from Martha are reworked into a series of seductive letters ending in a trial, his sexual infidelities beginning with Lotty Clarke and ending with Gerty McDowell are relived (importantly balanced by Molly’s infidelities) and reconciled, and lastly, Bloom triumphs over whore, Virgin-Goddess, and most importantly himself. Joyce equanimously gives both Molly and Bloom extramarital sexual infidelities - infidelities known by each of the other (as early as the Calypso chapter) Bloom was conscious of what was to come. Of course there will be resolution in marriage, for Molly only needs to feel that Bloom is willing. As we read, Bloom has undergone the travails of his own mind and has emerged Victorious. He has succeeded in his psycho-sexual existential quest. He has arrived at Molly’s bed. Self-possessed. Victorious. Eager.

    Molly I saw he understood or felt what a woman is and I knew I could always get round him...then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down in to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes. (END).

    After publishing Ulysses, Joyce began FINNEGANS WAKE (FW) - Joyce largely stepped out of one work into his next (and last work). The change Joyce made in FW was instead of using Homer's Ulysses as a framework - FW's framework is Giambattista Vico's La Scienza Nuova's 4 cyclic stages of history.

    Joyce realized that he ended Ulysses wrongly (not in accordance with the Universe) in Molly's bed - Joyce corrects his mistake in FINNEGANS WAKE by incorporating Vico's revelation of restart / recirculation. HCE day similar to Bloomsday (roughly 24 hrs): Chronologically FW starts with memories in book I:3 of HCE arrested in front of his tavern/home, like Bloom unable to enter his front door (but HCE does not enter his home through the back door) - instead HCE is arrested for disturbances in hours before dawn. Then memories book I:4 HCE's conscious/musings or unconscious/dream psychological travails of past guilts (underworld coffin, Ulysses ch Hades) while incarcerated in early hours of morning. Followed by memories book I:2 HCE walks home through Phoenix Park accosted for the time of day (12 noon) which threatens (real/unreal memories, Ulysses ch Nausicaa) his innocent well-being. These 3 chapters in FW are Joyce's major rework to incorporate Vico's revelation of restart / recirculation into FW - Joyce rewrites 3 chapters of Ulysses: When He is denied Her front door, He is in Hell (on earth), when released (from Hell) His odyssey to Her begins again (with His ever-present accompanying internal travails) for She always knows when He is worthy of Her acceptance (their Paradise).

    Then book I:1 Finnegan's afternoon wake at HCE's tavern and retelling memories (books I:2-4). Inside HCE's tavern (his ship) his patrons talk about his family (Norwegian Captain and the Tailor's Daughter), truthful letters (ALP) and fabricated stories (books I:5-8 & II:3); while the children (Shaun, Shem and Iseult) are in and out of the family tavern/home all day taking their lessons (book II:2) and playing about with their friends (Shem's closing dream, book II:1); HCE, as proprietor, defends himself with a self-deprecating apologia before his intoxicated collapse late night (book II:3). HCE dreams on his tavern floor (book II:4); then dreams in his bed (books III:1-3); before intercourse with his wife ALP (book III:4). HCE & ALP's lovemaking dissolution dream (book IV) to awaken to a new day, Joycean Nirvana is attained by ALP's (& HCE's) unification with the Unmanifest (Creation, Incarnate conception) and Reincarnation (the baton has been passed on again), awaiting Joyce's God thunderclap at the beginning of FW's book I.

    FW is aural (oral) history like Homer's Odessey and Celtic folktales - when one pronounces (phonology) FW's words (aloud) there are more languages than just English; also, when one reads (morphology) FW's words almost all the words are portmanteaus / neologisms which gives each of FW's poly-syncretic words many meanings (universal impermanence, Heisenberg uncertainty/obscurity), each FW syncretic sentence dozens of possible messages, each FW syncretic paragraph hundreds of possible readings, Joyce's rendering of a more expansive English language and multiplicating universal book with coalescing syncretic themes/stories (that responds/opens to each reader's inquiries). Joyce schooled in Christian Jesuit metaphysics (pushed down into the mindfulness of human consciousness) breathes in the spirit of expansive Celtic (Irish) democratic community tavern life where man's stories of life are told. Tavern life teaches the evolution of Joyce's ten God thunderclaps (one hundred lettered words) pushing man's evolution forward from cave man's tales to modern tv media tales. Inside the tavern man learns of the purely human (animal) fall, taken down by another human(s) - like animal taken down on the African savanna. A granular reading of FW can render FW as an updated John Milton's Paradise Lost (regurgitated knowledge from the tree, to affirm man's damnation); however, Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species was published in 1859 and Joyce in FW book II clearly walks Shaun, Shem and Iseult through their earthly evolutionary lifetime travails, our mortality is a consequence of Life's evolution. Every page of FW speaks to man's evolution (unconscious biological, conscious social, aspirational personal) and to Life recirculating (West meets Dzogchen East a meeting of metaphysical minds) that binds humanity together into the future. Dzogchen (beyond all dualistic polarities) the heart of human consciousness - Joyce's underlying (subcutaneous) arguments refute the Western curse of metaphysical/mythological damnation, the curse does not exist in the Eastern mind. Like counting the number of angels on the head of a pin (Aquinas 1270) Joyce provides a granular/expansive reading of FW as a defense against all Western adversity for our conscious and unconscious Western travails. HCE's angst is caused by his community that imposes a Western curse (damnation) upon him that man is not guilty of...to experience Joycean Nirvana, a defense against this man-made guilt is required - for as Zoroaster revealed cosmogonic dualism, evil is mixed with good in man's universal everyday travails (even the Dalai Lama must defend Nirvana rigorously from the most populous authoritarian state in human history).

    Joyce's FW celebrates the Joys of Christian/Buddhist diversity of humanity (expansive human consciousness: Gnostic Norwegian Captain, Shem, Archdruid), Brahma (Finnegan, HCE, Shaun), Divine Women (ALP, Iseult, Nuvoletta), his family - and the Sufferings of the inescapable evil of Shiva (Buckley), the debilitating harmful sterile intrusive authoritarian institutionalizing damnation (MaMaLuJo, St. Patrick) by Augustine, the manufactured clerical corruption identified by Luther (since 367 AD) and the burdens of survival of the fittest anxiety (modern commerce) met with a Dzogchen Buddhist stance. The (innocent infant) Norwegian Captain (Krishna, HCE), occasionally defensive (Shiva, HCE), though concretized (Brahma, HCE) by community family life (MaMaLuJo) - through spirits (drink) HCE can access his spirituality (dreams) and through spiritual (cutting through) love-making with ALP (direct approach) can access (their Krishnas) unification with the Unmanifest. Joyce was a Prophet who consumed Man's conscious and spiritual thoughts and dreams, history and gossip, efforts and failings - to reveal the joys (Nirvana) and sufferings (Saṃsāra) of Mankind.

    Joyce's FW message: Christian/Buddhist omniscient compassion (Christ/Krishna) is eternally joyful and recirculating. Affirmative family (HCE/Brahma, ALP/Divine woman & children) existentiality: life's biological evolution (sex), modern survival (money), constraining community (Dharma, social evolution) are constantly assaulted by inescapable aggressive insidious vile corrupt soul(less/sucking) ossified demonic antipathetic attacks. Joycean Nirvana is attained via the Christian/Buddhist affirmative middle way, beyond polar opposites the path of Christ/Buddha.

    It’s easy to see why Joyce isn’t remembered as a poet—for one, the sum total of his published poetry clocks in at 63 pages of rather short poems. But it’s interesting to see what he did produce, which boils down to two distinctly different collections plus a separately collected singleton to close the book.

    CHAMBER MUSIC is the first collection, and the title matches the tone. (Set aside that the title reportedly refers to the tinkling sounds of piss reverberating up from a chamber pot.) These are formal rhyming poems each assigned a solemn Roman numeral, and they are mostly about music or love, or music and love. Joyce clearly has a good ear, but most of these feel like trifles; the language feels light and airy, smooth-flowing and musical, but the impact is ephemeral. No dagger wound to the heart for the first chunk of the book—the best you’ll get is a glancing blow. Things shift unexpectedly towards the end of the collection, as I gather these lsat were written later and appended to later publications; praise be, because they cut much deeper than their predecessors. The final poem, XXXVI, feels like an abdication of them, but it’s the best one by a mile:

    I hear an army charging upon the land,
    And the thunder of horses plunging, foam about their knees:
    Arrogant in black armour, behind them stand,
    Disdaining the reins, with fluttering whips, the charioteers.

    They cry unto the night their battle-name:
    I moan in sleep when I hear afar their whirling laughter.
    They cleave the gloom of dreams, a blinding flame,
    Clanging, clanging upon the heart as upon the anvil.

    They come shaking in triumph their long, green hair:
    They come out of the sea and run shouting by the shore.
    My heart, have you no wisdom thus to despair?
    My love, my love, my love, why have you left me alone?


    I’m terrible at articulating why I like any given poem, or what the poet is actually doing on a technical level, who or what’s being referenced, or what anything even means—but this one strikes me as sublime. (Yeats apparently agreed, calling it a “technical and emotional masterpiece.”)

    POMES PENYEACH: the meat of the book for me, though it’s over before you know it. These were written much later, and apparently rejected for publication by Ezra Pound. Still, they feel darker and deeper, still tethered to traditional forms for the most part, but somehow unshackled. Nothing in this book really captures the tone or feel of Joyce’s fiction, but this collection at least feels more Joycean to me, and much more distinct and memorable than Chamber Music. Also, you can read it in 15 minutes or so, which I quite appreciate.

    ECCE PUER: a single poem on a single page, with a heading all to itself. It’s short, sharp, and rather dark, and it closes the book in an altogether different place than where we began.

    Overall: a fine collection, and an interesting look at a different side of Joyce’s creative life.

  5. says:

    Collected Poems begins with Chamber Music, a pleasant little lyrical suite consisting of 36 poems. Joyce’s own assessment of the collection is lucid and relevant: “When I wrote [Chamber Music], I was a lonely boy, walking about by myself at night and thinking that one day a girl would love me.” Indeed, Chamber Music is an idealized account of love gained, savored, and then lost, all as quickly as the spring it thematizes. One can’t help but think of Dante’s Vita Nuova, a similarly lyrical account of an ideal rather than real love that burns out as quickly as the flame first roars. After that there’s Poems Penyeach, which is a more mature but far less focused work. The collection was originally published in 1927, likely just because Joyce needed his finances bolstered, and consists of poems written between 1904 and 1924. There are some excellent highlights here, and you can see Joyce applying some of the neologisms and images he put to use in Ulysses throughout the text. They seem to be largely autobiographical, reflecting on scenes from where he lived, times spent with his children, and the complexities of his inner life. The final poem is “Ecce Puer,” written to commemorate the birth of his grandson and the passing of his father. It is as touching as it is brief.

  6. says:

    4,5/5. Joyce was (is) an absolute master of the written word. Here is a microcosm of all his work, of his evolution from an almost Romantic/Preraphaelite to his own powerful and unique style. I appreciate more his previous works, line Chamber Music or Pomes Penyeach, that are more universal in scope yet more intimate and ethereal. His following works are not only full of his beloced neologisms, but are too tightly related to life episodes, that without the proper guiding they will be too unpenetrable. Thanks also to mr. Pablo Ingberg for an amazing translation into spanish and all the useful notes on the poems.

  7. says:

    What’s not to like or admire or love? One of my favorites from Pomes Penyeach:

    ON THE BEACH AT FONTANA
    Wind whines and whines the shingle,
    The crazy pierstakes groan;
    A senile sea numbers each single
    Slimesilvered stone.

    From whining wind and colder
    Grey sea I wrap him warm
    And touch his trembling fineboned shoulder
    And boyish arm.

    Around us fear, descending
    Darkness of fear above
    And in my heart how deep unending
    Ache of love! (52).

    I have nothing educated to say about poetry.

    I found this collection to very beautiful, but I am far from done reading it. I will continue to read these poems, but, as for now, I can only say that they are beautiful.

  9. says:

    I hate disclaimers, but I will do one: this is the first review of a play I ever write, nor have I ever reviewed poetry before. You will forgive me for my lack of knowledge and understanding, and maybe help me by writing your comments.

    I love Joyce. He is one of the authors that speak to my heart the most. I think this is related to my having a strong moral voice inside myself telling me what I should do in all occasion while trying to fight it all the time, a situation that I continuously find in Joyce's writing. I think the major contribution to it is the Catholic education and especially the concept of the original sin, that is, the fact that we are born sinners and we should ask for forgiveness constantly.

    In this case, the subject is declined in love relationships: Richard Rowan is a writer that pretends to be detached from common morality; I think that he was seen as some sort of an ideal character from Joyce. Richard not only gives complete freedom to his partner Bertha in her love affairs but seems to encourage them. In exchange, he asks for complete freedom for himself and complete sincerity in their relationship. However, the received freedom is seen by Bertha as a different kind of an imprisonment: she can't believe Richard is indifferent to all of this and asks him to reveal his preference so that she could act accordingly. Bertha is taken exactly in the middle of the struggle between what is moral, what her husband wants her to do, what would make her life the most interesting. Another very interesting character is Robert, Bertha's lover and Richard's long time friend. He is a man looking for pleasure that, by his word, wants to kiss everything and everyone that is beautiful. He seems to be completely detached from the common morality. However, when Richard confronts him and tells him he knows everything about his love affair with Bertha, he takes two steps back and proclaims his guilt. Everything is made more complicated by his making love to Bertha one hour after.

    The play ends with both Robert and Beatrice (Richard's lover, that I haven't mentioned yet) going away from the house of Richard and Bertha. Richard is wounded in his heart because he is not sure anymore of Bertha's sincerity, and Bertha tries to win back his love as she did 9 years before, making it for a new exciting game that could maybe, finally, resolve the conflict she is passing through.

    In all this, I haven't even mentioned the title: Exiles. It refers to the self-imposed exile that Richard and Bertha spend in Rome for the first 8 years of their relationship, and it is a clear reference to the self-imposed exile that will last for all Joyce's life. During their exile, Joyce's family will live in many cities: curiously, Joyce apparently disliked Rome and spend there just a few months before moving back to Trieste. But I feel that the title also refers to more inner exiles, the renunciations that we all do to keep order and coherence in our lives. In this case, Robert's exile from Bertha to keep the friendship with Richard and to preserve his morality.

    The play is very romantic, both in the theme and the style: characters have long discussions in which they express strong feelings, maybe too strong to seem real. This romantic style, that I imagine being a bit old even for 1918, when the play was written, contrasts strongly with the very modern psychological approach to characters. It is the same romantic approach that lives in Chamber music, Joyce's first collection of poems, which are all love poems. They are appropriately titled, since they have a very melodic flow to all of them, with strong metric structure and rhymes. In most of them is even explicitly mentioned music, one of Joyce's greatest passions. He was very poorly-sighted and apparently considered sound an essential part of his life and his work. I guess the poems are ok, but not really mind-blowing.

    A good read for Joyce's fans. Some poems were beautifully composed and not very long as well.
