Visite Guidée Mâlique

INTRO

Visite Guidée Mâlique is my rendition into French of pages 8 to 10 of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, as seen from the perspective of Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass (The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even, 1915-23). The connections that I have created between Joyce and Duchamp do not hold a claim to any general validity, nor do they seek to embody one. As a matter of fact, between these two artists there exists no connection whatsoever relevant to this undertaking. Yet, my choice to create them anyhow is to be considered as a creative act. As such its only necessary justification lies in this artistic choice.
