“The first thing to say about Finnegans Wake is that it is, in an important sense, unreadable.”
Seamus Deane

“Paradise was not far away when I died”
Seamus Deane, Reading in the Dark

“Some families, Katie told us, are devil-haunted; it's a curse a family can never shake off. Maybe it's something terrible in the family history, some terrible deed that was done in the past, and it just spreads and it spreads down the generations like a shout down a tunnel that echoes and echoes and never really stops.”
Seamus Deane
