‘Strandentwining Cable’

Chapter 6 is divided into two main sections. The first examines Finnegans Wake notebook VI.B.8, in which Joyce made three Flaubert-related jottings. It relates these momentous notes to Joyce’s travels through Normandy (home to Flaubert as well as Emma Bovary, Bouvard and Pécuchet) in the summer of 1925 and suggests that both the journey and the jottings reflect Joyce’s preoccupation with Flaubert and with issues of intertextuality during the early stages of his work on Finnegans Wake. The second section considers allusions to Flaubert in the Wake: these are read as knowing indications of a connection between the radical intertextuality deployed by Joyce in his final work and the precedent of Flaubert’s Bouvard et Pécuchet.

Keywords:   Finnegans Wake notebook VI.B.8, Rouen, Normandy, Maupassant, Larbaud, paternity, filiation, quotation marks, free indirect speech, radical intertextuality
