Abstract

Finnegans Wake's Isolde figure merges with Issy, Izzy, Lizzy, Lissy, and Lucia Joyce, and through the ancient legend Earwicker's dream reverberates in Joyce's reality. The Tristan and Isolde saga foreshadows Earwicker's rivalry with Shem and Shaun for Izzy's affections, as well as giving Joyce a way to express his fascination with his own daughter. /// La silhouette d'Iseut dans Finnegans Wake se fond avec Issy, Izzy, Lizzy et Lucia Joyce et à travers l'ancienne légende, le rêve d'Earwicker se reflète dans la réalité de Joyce. La saga de Tristant et Iseut présage la rivalité d'Earwicker entre Shem et Shaun pour conquerir le coeur d'Izzy. Cela donne aussi à Joyce l'occasion d'exprimer sa fascination envers sa propre fille.
