Children’s Night Games

Miscellaneous and random Irish literature trivia.

Just stumbled on these images of “fragments” from James Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake, which were published in 1932 and 1934, a few years prior to the full-length book being published in 1939. (The book was a work-in-progress for 17 years.)

The text of The Mime of Mick, Nick, and the Maggies is the self-contained first section of the book’s Part II, and is sometimes referred to as the Children’s Night Games.

Shaun and Maggie.
