Stem and Stone, and: The Writer in Exile

From: James Joyce Quarterly
Volume 49, Number 1, Fall 2011
p. 157 | 10.1353/jjq.2011.0118

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

"Stem and Stone"

Look at stem.
Look at stone.
Stem has a flower.
Stone is alone.
Stem bends a little.
Stone doesn't bend.
Stem blooms and dies.
Stone has no end.

Stone has no end.
Stem lives again.

"The Writer in Exile"

Twenty-nine girls liked Chuff.
Not one liked poor Glugg.
They looked at Glugg and said, "O Glugg,
You have a mugly ug."

Said Glugg, "Okay, I'll go away
to some far distant land.
There will I write a comical book
which you won't understand."

"O Glugg," said the twenty-nine girls,
"we'd love a comical book.
When you have finished writing it,
do let us take a look."

Glugg packed his bag and moved away
to a house where he could think.
It was called the Haunted Ink Bottle House,
cause it had an inky stink.

Glugg never asked the twenty-nine girls,
to come and read his book.
But when he read it to himself,
he laughed until he shook.
