Notes de programme :
I was inspired to write this work after delving into the history of Finnigans Wake, when I learned that the structure of James Joyce’s great book was modelled on the theories of the Italian historian-philosopher, Giambattista Vico. Vico’s philosophy of history, laid out in his Scienza Nuova (1725), suggests that each and every civilisation moves through a four-part cycle of faiths. Firstly, the culture puts its faith in god(s), then heroes, then other men (ie, each other), then in nothing. This final stage is marked by an aimlessness of society which leads to the destruction of the culture and a return to the beginning. This is, of course, massively oversimplified, possibly to the point of misrepresentation.Regardless, with that crude understanding, I decided that I would humbly follow in Joyce’s footsteps write my own series of four poems based on Vico’s four different stages. Instead of dealing with whole cultures, I compressed the four stages into the life of one man, who is looking back from the final stage (called ricorso) and remembering fondly his life during the first 3 stages, wishing he still believed in something. - DJPS – Happy 100th Bloomsday everyone!
