Her proper place in her father's story 15 juin 2006
Par Shalom Freedman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This review is based in good part on Joan Acocella 's comprehensive review which first appeared in 'The New Yorker'. It also makes use of information provided by D.T. Max in a story on Joyce's grandson , Stephen Joyce and his efforts to protect the family from too close public scrutiny.

Shloss worked for many years on this book, and her aim is to both rehabilitate Lucia Joyce from the image given of her by Joyce scholars Richard Ellmann( The great Joyce biographer) and Brenda Maddox( Biographer of Nora Joyce).

As Schloss sees it Lucia Joyce was herself a creative artist who was not simply an inspiration but a real collaborator with her father in the creation of 'Finnegan's Wake'. This claim is one Acocella believes there is no real evidence for, and is in fact the major exaggeration of the book.

Other claims of Schloss however are given greater credibility. The primary one is that Lucia Joyce was victimized, institutionalized unnecessarily through the treacherous actions of her brother Georgio. As Schloss sees it James Joyce was Lucia's defender in the family , loved her and believed in her genius. But in his dedication to his work, especially to the completion of 'Finnegan's Wake' he did not take the time and effort to stand up to his wife Nora and son Georgio who worked against Lucia.

Lucia's sad story, her schizophrenia, her rejection by three assistants of Joyce, including Beckett and Alexander Calder, her failed efforts at a dancing career, her tale of childhood wanderings with an indigent father artist, her language difficulties , her long period of institutionalization is told here in great detail.

Schloss has tremendous sympathy for her subject.

Unfortunately she in trying to make Lucia Joyce a subject of interest is unable to change the fact that the reason most people have had or will have interest in her is because of the possible light her life throws on that of Joyce itself.

Certainly the illness of his daughter was for Joyce a major source of worry grief and frustration.

Yet in the way Schloss tells the story Joyce himself too appears a victim, both of his other family members, and of his genius.

He also appears as an often neglectful but nonetheless largely caring father who could not prevent his child from having a life of great pain and suffering.

Standing by Father 13 novembre 2014
Par Books McGulligan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
A thorough and scholarly piece of work, a devotion. Extremely well researched and created without the added benefit of letters and other important documents, since they were destroyed (this is explained in the intro).

This is an important read for anyone interested in creative women born in the family of a famous artist. This is important to read for women very attached to the father and denied moral support by the mother...you will find similar issues and hopefully through this discover compassion.

Very important for anyone obsessed with James Joyce as this gives an intimate glimpse around what went on in the making of several of his books. Very interesting in that regard. The politics around him and the issues he had with regard to getting work done. His devotion and constant worry for his daughter. There is plenty of mystery, since the letters between the two were destroyed.

I enjoyed the time and place, historical references of which there many. Loved reading about the Duncans and discovered Margaret Morris, who was fabulous, there should be more of her in our midst.

Our heroine Lucia Joyce however, was highly talented, creative and unfortunately tragic. My only issue is that at times, the author totally went on tangents that were out there. I think she intended to make this book Ulyssesean in length to give credit to Lucia who deserved a far better ride.

However, Lucia's outbursts, tantrums and whatever else went down freaked her mother and brother enough to get her out of the way. Lucia could not find a way out of her family life and a way into her own creative life and ended up incarcerated. Heart breaking.

This is a must-read for Joyceans 8 février 2014
Par Miranda Martin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
For years and years I have read in bio after bio of James Joyce all about his wife doing this and that, his son doing this and that, and his "daughter, who was insane." In olden times (pre-1970?) I guess no one questioned this curt write-off. If more information had ever been included, I don't suppose it would have stuck in my mind, but this sphinxian side-of-mouth judgment didn't seem right. So yes, when I saw Prof. Shloss's book - after all this time! - I grabbed it fast. And well worth it! There are tons of information and tons of very interesting details, tons of "local color," some about Ireland and some about Trieste, but most about Paris in the 1920's and the different Paris artists and families close to the Joyces. Lucia came of age in this Paris, where it was the fashion for a girl to be as wild as possible. She studies movement and dance quite thoughtfully, I thought, and the author rounds up several of her close friends and fellow dance students of the time and through them and other items the author has unearthed, we finally at long last get the story of James Joyce's only daughter. For the record, Joyce himself never, to his death, agreed that Lucia was insane. If you want to read a story of family politics and the power they have, this is the book to read. And thrown in with it, keeping in mind that one reason for the apparent unintelligibility of "Finnegan's Wake" may actually be these same family politics, in telling about Lucia's communication with her father, throws tremendous light on the book.
Written with great clarity and compassion 6 avril 2015
Par maya - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Written with great clarity and compassion, this work illuminates the story of James Joyce’s daughter, Lucia, a dancer and artist in her own right misperceived as mad, “fused in a dark creative bond with her father,” her presence shaping and informing his work. Shloss reveals a central battle over the figure of Lucia, an interpretive quest to pin her down (during her life and in its aftermath) as victim, problem, distraction, lunatic. The stakes of this battle are profound for Lucia herself and for her father. “His daughter’s illness presented him with life’s greatest enigma,” and in trying to untangle it, to make sense of it, Joyce enters a labyrinth that takes him to the heart of modern literature. Lucia becomes a kind of dancing question mark, unsettling relationships, puzzling those around her, speaking in a discourse her father alone seems to understand. Shloss shows us how Lucia’s defiance of norms, her blazing creativity, her irrepressible spark, illuminate Joyce’s art and compel him to discover new modes of expression, a new “mode of daring.” Shloss’ work shows us not only what past biographers have missed; she causes us to think about madness in art, father/daughter relationships, the figure of the errant child, and female adolescence. This is a luminous work, as complicated, bold, and extraordinary as the subject it describes.

Very interesting book. A must for those readers interested in the Joyces, whose lives were almost more interesting than the books!
