1 A brief introduction to his ways of accretion in the nocturnal concoction called Finnegans Wake Onno Kosters, March 2003

2 Select items from Scribbledehobble: The Ur-workbook for Finnegans Wake (Northwestern UP, 1961), pp : Dublin (Geo), Isaac Butt, Sosie Sizters, Clap, Finnegan, Parr, pftjschute, Peter, Sawyer, Adam, Tristan, S Peter Sawyer, S Patrick, Swift, Isaac, Guiness (Noah), Rainbow.

3 Copy, shake, modify and add ‘grammar and story’: Howth Castle & Environs! Sir Tristram had not encore arrived from North Armorica, nor stones exaggerated theirselves in Laurens County, GA, doubling all the time, nor a voice answered mishe mishe to tufftuff thouartpatrick. Not yet had a kidson buttended an isaac not yet, had twin sesthers played siege to twone Jonathan. Not a peck of malt had Shem and Son brewed & bad luck to the regginbrew was to be seen on the waterface. The story of the fall is retailed early in bed and later in life throughout most christian minstrelsy. The fall of the wall at once entailed the fall of Finnegan, and the humpty hill himself promptly sends an inquiring one well to the west in quest of his tumptytumtoes. The upturnpikepoint is at the knock out in the park where there have always been oranges on the green always & ever since the devlin first loved liffey. (Cf. David Hayman, ed., A First-draft Version of Finnegans Wake [London, 1963], p. 46.)

4 Copy, shake, take out, put in additions in dark blue, substitutions and modifications of earlier items in bold type: brings us to Howth Castle & Environs! Sir Tristram, viola d’amores, had passencore rearrived on a merry isthmus from North Armorica to wielderfight his peninsular war, nor sham rocks by the Oconee exaggerated themselse to Laurens county, GA, doubling all the time, nor a voice from afire bellowsed mishe chishe to tufftuff thouartpeatrick. Not yet though venisoon after had a kidscadet buttended a bland old isaac not yet & all’s fair in vanessy, were sosie sesthers wroth with twone jonathan. Rot a peck of pa’s malt had Jhem or Sen brewed by archlight & rory end to the regginbrow was to be seen ringsome on the waterface. The tale of the fall is retailed early in bed and later in life throughout most christian minstrelsy. The great fall of the wall entailed at such short notice the fall of Finnegan, the solid man and that the humpty hillhead himself prumptly sends an unquiring one well to the west in quest of his tumptytumtoes. The upturnpikepoint for place is at the knock out in the park where there have been oranges laid on the green ever & evermore since the devlins first loved livy. (Ibid.)

5 Copy, shake, take out, put in new additions in light blue, substitutions and modifications of earlier items in bold type: riverrun brings us to Howth Castle & Environs. Sir Tristram, violer d’amores, fr’ over the short sea, had passencore rearrived from North Armorica on this side the scraggy isthmus of Europe Minor to wielderfight his penisolate war: nor had topsawyer’s rocks by the stream Oconee exaggerated themselse to Laurens County’s gorgios, while they went doubling their mumper all the time, nor avoice from afire bellowsed mishe mishe to tauftauf thuartpeatrick: not yet, though venissoon after, had a kidscad buttended a bland old isaac: not yet, though all’s fair in vanessy, were sosie sesthers wroth with twone nathandjoe. Rot a peck of pa’s malt had Jhem or Shen brewed by arclight and rory end to the regginbrow was to be seen ringsome on the waterface. The fall (babadalgharaghtakamminarronnkonnbronntonnerronntuonnthunntrovarrhoun- awnskawntoohoohoordenenthurnuk!) of a once wallstraight oldparr is retaled early in bed and later on life down through all christian minstrelsy. The great fall of the offwall entailed at such short notice the schute of Finnegan, erse solid man, that the humptyhillhead of humself prumptly sends an unquiring one well to the west in quest of his tumptytumtoes: and their upturnpikepointandplace is at the knock out in the park where oranges have been laid to rust upon the green since devlins first loved livy. (Cf. ‘Opening Pages of a Work in Progress’, transition 1 [April 1927], pp )

6 Copy, shake, take out, put in new additions in green, substitutions and modifications of earlier items bold type: riverrun, past Eve and Adam’s, from swerve of shore to bend of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs. // Sir Tristram, violer d’amores, fr’over the short sea, had passencore rearrived from North Armorica on this side the scraggy isthmus of Europe Minor to wielderfight his penisolate war: nor had topsawyer’s rocks by the stream Oconee exaggerated themselse to Laurens County’s gorgios, while they went doubling their mumper all the time, nor avoice from afire bellowsed mishe mishe to tauftauf thuartpeatrick: not yet, though venissoon after, had a kidscad buttended a bland old isaac: not yet, though all’s fair in vanessy, were sosie sesthers wroth with twone nathandjoe.

The great fall of the offwall entailed at such short notice the schute of Finnigan, erse solid man, that the humptyhillhead of humself prumptly sends an unquiring one well to the west in quest of his tumptytum­toes: and their upturnpikepointandplace is at the knock out in the park where oranges have been laid to rust upon the green since devlins first loved livy.

Sir Tristram, violer d’amores, fr’over the short sea, had passencore rearrived from North Armorica on this side the scraggy isthmus of Europe Minor to wielderfight his penisolate war: nor had topsawyer’s rocks by the stream Oconee exaggerated themselse to Laurens County’s gorgios while they went doublin their mumper all the time: nor avoice from afire bellowsed mishe mishe to tauftauf thuartpeatrick not yet, though venissoon after, had a kidscad buttended a bland old isaac: not yet, though all’s fair in vanessy, were sosie sesthers wroth with twone nathandjoe.
