Pour se relancer alors qu’il traversait une période d'incertitude, Joyce s’est mis à écrire de curieuses vignettes sur des thèmes irlandais. Ces petits textes, apparemment simplistes, sont les germes de ce qui deviendra le plus complexe des chefs-d’œuvre du vingtième siècle.
Nous publions ici pour l. a. première fois, dans los angeles langue originale et en traduction française, le cœur de cet ensemble qui s’organise autour de l. a. légende de Tristan et Iseult et notamment du most excellent baiser des deux amants. Joyce s’efforce de décrire, dans une veine tantôt gruesome, tantôt lyrique, ce baiser, présenté aussi bien comme un événement cosmique que comme un flirt sordide. L’étreinte se déroule sous le regard libidineux de quatre voyeurs séniles, dont les divagations donneront le ton et fixeront le kind de Finnegans Wake.

Ces textes nous révèlent un point inattendu de los angeles démarche créative de Joyce et offrent une voie d’accès à qui voudrait commencer à s’aventurer dans l’univers si intimidant de sa dernière œuvre."
