Teaching Joyce

From: James Joyce Quarterly
Volume 46, Number 1, Fall 2008
p. 133 | 10.1353/jjq.0.0133

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Yeah, they say, clay's the title, but what's
really in the plate? They take to the game,

puicini, proposing nasty things shuffled
and placed before her blind palms—soft

and wet, probably brown, given Joyce's
color choices of the dull and dank.

The story's game is the same: something
unnamed at the heart, something dark.

Someone says something about a garden,
and there's a mom saying throw it out

at once—suggesting repugnant stuff or something
wrong. "Something the dog did," laughs one.

The class likes that one. It's a do over,
second chance, second verse, better

even than a prayer book in dingy hands.
