Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
A form for the feeling of being alive and kicking”: Chaos and structure in Joyce’s Finnegans Wake
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Kevin Reilly, Former President UW System
Abstract: Right from the start, Finnegans Wake subverts the usual order by beginning at the end and ending at the beginning. Its very title is a spring-loaded word trick. The Wake is perhaps the most complex and unread of all the great works of world literature—and a great joke book too! We will read it out loud as Joyce intended, and hear how its fun chaos in language calls up profound speculation on life.
Host: Clint Sprott
