41 It is not hard, reviewing the subsequent critical reception of Joyce, to see how this has been simplified and ignored. Wyndham Lewis also compares Joyce’s deployment of national themes, including himself as national type, with his Irish contemporaries. Lewis writes that the possession of ‘personality’ has distinguished all the famous Irish literary figures of recent times; and although Joyce, ‘steeped in the sadness and the pathetic gentility of the upper shopkeeping classes, slumbering at the bottom of a neglected province’, cannot aspire to the glamour of a Wilde, Yeats or Shaw, he is ‘by no means without the personal touch’.
Perhaps the difficulty Yeats experiences in seeing how a national community is informed by ‘a nation-wide multiform reverie’ also lies behind George Russell’s conception of a democratized epic. For the form of the epic, as Bakhtin argues, is that in which ‘beginning’, ‘first’, ‘founder’, ‘ancestor’, ‘that which occurred before’ are valorized temporal categories, corresponding to the ‘reverent point of view of a descendant’:11 evidently not at all suitable for a democratic community of modern individuals.
The true meaning of his short stories—like the true meaning of the scene in the underworld—lies in a buried allegory. And Riquelme asserts that the same four symbols, in partially Christianized versions, reappear at the end of ‘The Dead’, hidden in Joyce’s descriptions of the Connemara graveyard with its crooked crosses and headstones, and the spears of its gates. 30 Riquleme, however, asserts that a more specifically national sense of identity or community is at stake in Joyce’s text. In arguing this, however, Riquelme presumes that the real meaning of ‘The Dead’ is entirely divorced from its literal sense.
