finnegans wake (USP, 2018)
O Finnegans Wake e os limites do romance
A disciplina pretende discutir questões que podem ter interesse para a teoria literária e a teoria do romance, a partir de um problema
de um texto problema, o Finnegans Wake, de James Joyce.
Se o livro de Joyce se organiza como tentativa de dizer da única maneira possível algo que prévia e continuamente foi e é identificado como indizível; ou seja, se o
Wake é o necessariamente incompreensível enunciado que diz o inefável, como fica a situação, em qualquer esquema que se pretenda conceber, do leitor, do intérprete,
do crítico... do tradutor?
Para chegarmos aí, no entanto, vamos necessariamente ter de dedicar boa parte do curso a uma introdução geral ao livro e à análise conjunta de trechos escolhidos.
Vamos tentar ler o Finnegans Wake. O que já é bastante.
Apresentar possibilidades de leitura e “interpretação” do romance final de James Joyce, com especial atenção para os tensionamentos e questionamentos propostos pelo Finnegans Wake para categorias chaves da teoria do romance e da teoria literária, como um todo. Discutir a possibilidade da legibilidade do romance, o que significa, nos termos forçosamente definidos pela própria obra, discutir inclusive o que significa a “legibilidade” dentro da tradição do romance, e em que medida essa categoria pode ter sido refundada no projeto linguístico radicalizado de Joyce.
Se é de alguma maneira ponto pacífico que o Ulysses pode ter representado uma espécie de “suma” do romance modernista, encenando um ápice e, nesse mesmo processo, um questionamento violento dos elementos do romanesco em princípios do século XX, o Finnegans Wake, incalculavelmente mais radical, mais arriscado e mais pretensioso, continua em considerável medida “não lido” e talvez “não legível” graças a suas próprias premissas básicas. Compreender o projeto de Joyce ao propor esse desafio a gerações de leitores é, mais que fundamental, perigoso e, por isso mesmo, potencialmente iluminador para toda a teoria do romance.
(Esse foi o miniprograma divulgado. E vale. Stet. Mas aqui fica um conjunto um pouco mais detalhado de instruções, organizações e
etceterações, pra você poder decidir se quer mesmo cursar e, depois disso, pra poder acompanhar o andamento das atividades e tals.)
Primeiro de tudo: nenhuma leitura prévia é necessária. A bem da verdade, eu quase diria que leituras prévias não são nem recomendadas. Dada a natureza do programa,
o jogo mesmo vai ser a gente tentar essa leitura juntos. No fundo, no fundo, a essência do curso vai ser justamente composta por essa leitura conjunta. Na
minha experiência anterior, essa é a GRANDE forma de se ler o Wake.
A revolução joyceana na prosa romanesca.
O Finnegans Wake como o "fim" do romance.
Sobrevoo pelo Liffey. O livro, suas partes, tramas, pessoas.
Leitura coletiva de fragmentos do livro.
Discussão final. O romance no "fim" do Finnegans Wake.
Do texto do Wake, recomendo muito as versões disponíveis na rede, tanto no site da Trent University quanto neste; e, anotado, tando no do Slepon quanto, com uma interface mais maneira, neste aqui. E, outra dica internética, as sinopses
destiladas do Fweet, que pra sua maior comodidade eu já copio também aqui no pé desta página.
(Mas deixo anotadinho aqui que, em vistas do que a gente pretende fazer, talvez nem seja recomendável entrar direto [muito menos ANTES das aulas] na pira
anotacionista, extrapolacioneira... logo, de repente as notas mais pontuais do Slepon podem ficar pra depois. As sinopses são menos problemáticas. E podem ser
Professor, quero ler a tradução portuguesa.
Ora, sinta-se em casa. Mas se a gente for discutir ponto a ponto as opções de tradução o curso não vai pra frente. Logo, em sala, ficamos direto com o original, que
vamos mastigando juntos.
Professor, eu não leio inglês direito.
Nem se preocupe, o livro não foi escrito em inglês direito.
** Isso deve ser o que um professor decente faria nas primeiras aulas. Aqui, só depois de termos tentado entender o que o livro queria e o que a gente pôde querer com o
livro no contato direto com o texto, aqui é que a gente para pra ouvir o que o Joyce pôde ter dito sobre o seu projeto e o que a gente mesmo pode pensar, com recurso a
teóricos, filósofos, whatever.
Claro que eu tenho as minhas referências, e que você vai ter as tuas. Tudo bem, tudo ok, todos em casa. Discutamos.
Claro, também, que essas (especialmente as minhas) leituras vão acabar transparecendo durante as primeiras aulas. Bem possível que essas aqui sirvam também (senão
mais) como síntese.
*** No tempo que sobrar, voltamos ao livro. Pra pra discutir mais pontualmente (é outra questão,
afinal, que deve nos assombrar durante todo o semestre) questões gerais de teoria e, também, de tradução.
Vai ser divertido.
Vai por mim.
Seremos muitos? Muito duvido.
We few, we happy few...
