What of James Joyce? Irish Rosary Editorial Comment. The Irish Rosary, March 1941. Dublin: Irish Rosary, 1941. Original printed wrappers. Light wear to extremities otherwise a near fine copy of this interesting Joyce association item. The Irish Rosary was a monthly magazine issued by the Dominican Order Dublin from 1897 to 1961. James Joyce having died in Zurich Switzerland on 13th January 1941, this editorial begins with the sentences "We never found occasion to write about James Joyce when he was alive and we feel no inclination to write about him now that he is dead." It then proceeds to write about Joyce, his outstanding evil influence as a writer, the boundless admiration of this influence by the Press, his bartering of an "intellectual pearl of great price for the husks of intellectual sin" and his purported failure to be "reconciled to Christ" on his death-bed. The editorial continues on to defend those charged with the "provincial vandalism of arraigning a literary genius for his unchastity and unchristianity."
