Hermes, the phallus, is the god of roads, of doors, of all goings-in and comings-out; all goings-on. sixteen 176 · Who’s petrified of James Joyce? Brophy’s comedian and feminist myth of the wandering phallus appears like a move among Norman O. Brown and Luce Irigaray, a “pricking” of the parable of the cellular phallus and parodic deflation of phallogocentric theories of move. In a last passage that's one of the self-described “ALIENATING INTERLUDE”s within the narrative addressed to the reader, we learn “The administration trussts [sic] the customers has through now saw that at the very least one of many hero(in)es immolated all through those pages is language” (In Transit 214). In a parody of castration, the multilingual narrator “loses” French after which German in the course of an episode of “linguistic leprosy”: “my languages gave their first dowser’s-twig twitch and that i conceived they could be going to fall off ” (12). The transcendental signified anchoring language is uncovered as “trussed-up” fiction. The “hero(in)e immolated . . . is language”: certainly, one piece of the narrative is a pornographic story referred to as “L’HISTOIRE DE los angeles LANGUE D’OC (THE tale OF OC’S TONGUE)” (98), the mummy tongue, who alternately is certain via after which escapes from quite a few masters of language. “‘And did you believe, Och,’ enquired the Maestro Hugh Bris in his accustomed courteous tones . . . ‘that puns resembling yours may cross unpunished? ’” (214). yet such prideful masters of language can't cease its errancy and detours. The “story of the tongue of Oc” (141) is a tongue-in-cheek critique of preemptive bindings and mappings, of priestly severe practices that search to mend meanings, together with the which means of gender. In Joycean type, one of many narrators refers back to the narrative of In Transit as a “juicifixion” (217) which many times and intentionally levels a failure to nail the physique of language down. Transculturality turns out a metaphor for the liberty of border crossings, a style of evading customs regulate. Brophy’s Irish vacationer owes his/her maximum debt to 2 earlier exilic wanderers: Joyce and his Ulysses, and this pair of exiles represents to boot the anarchic stream of the signifier that refuses to stabilize in a linguistic “home. ” certainly, “Unruly’s” etymological roots are traced again to “Oruleus,” a reputation, we're advised, that's “latinised as Ulrix and thence fairly quaintly englished as Unruly” (175). “Youlysses have fore-suffered all. earlier than the Jew wandered, jew did. Is that one other of your dog-headed Irish slips? ” (35). sooner than Joyce’s wandering Jew was once Homer’s Greek, with the recommendation, throughout the pun at the French verb “lire,” to learn, that the reader, the “you” of the textual content, is a fellow patient and vacationer besides. The narrator says at one element, Ulysses is “the hero who can by no means accomplish the go back of the local, simply because he isn’t one” (35). This Greek wanderer is Joyce in Transit · 177 the imperative exile, the brand for the of language as constantly already fallen from a “home” or starting place, the post-structuralist place.
