Hey there Len,

Specifically, Joyce's Finnegans Wake is a "dream book" of puns and neologisms from beginning to end, and many dream-like overlapping images. It's really an amazing book but it can be very difficult to understand. It is very popular amongst a few of the "trippers" who explore higher consciousness, dreams, and other altered states. I had a dream where I picked up Joyce's personal sigla he devised for HCE - it was years before I discovered what it meant. Here is the entry from my dream journal from 12/1/1990:
Swimming in a blue pool, lots under water, full of kids playing. I talked to them in bubbles. Health tests came back. Everything OK except a few cases of spinach stomach. One kid's test came back too late for him to participate. Here's a pic of from my dream journal so you can see the form of the interlocking letters on the cover (note that it was the same morning that I had the dream about the Master who wanted to play a game of "pool" for "2 or 3 bucks." See the pun? In the next dream I was swimming in a "pool."
Saw a thin copy of Finnegans Wake Guide Boo with FW interlaced as some pair of Hebrew letters on the cover - hologrammic - refracts light to get different letters.
The images at the bottom are very rough representations. In the dream, they were like holographs that would change to different interlocking letters depending on the angle of view. The first is an F interlocking with a W and the second is two horizontal letters E. It was a couple years later that I discovered this was Joyce's own private sigla for his central character HCE = Humphrey Chimden Earwicker. Here's a page from the book The Sigla of Finnegans Wake where the symbols are defined:
The other main character was ALP (Anna Livia Plurabilities) = Aleph = 111. She was represented by a triangle. Joyce had a lot of Kabbalism in his book ... indeed, he attempted to represent the entire universe in it!
Given that Finnegans Wake invaded my dreams, I felt inclined to see what was on page 528 of Finnegans Wake. Imagine my surprise when I found a reference to Jumbo followed by the words Ding Dong! (Dalet Dalet ==> 44), as well as the concept of knocking and opening a door:
Eusapia! Fais-le, tout-tait! Languishing hysteria? The clou
historique? How is this at all? Is dads the thing in such or are
tits the that? Hear we here her first poseproem of suora unto
suora? Alicious, twinstreams twinestraines, through alluring
glass or alas in jumboland? Ding dong! Where's your pal in
silks alustre? Think of a maiden, Presentacion. Double her,
Annupciacion. Take your first thoughts away from her,
Immacolacion. Knock and it shall appall unto you! Who shone yet
shimmers will be e'er scheining. Cluse her, voil her, hild her hindly.
After liryc and themodius soft aglo iris of the vals. This young
barlady, what, euphemiasly? Is she having an ambidual act
herself in apparition with herself as Consuelas to Sonias may?
Dang! And tether, a loguy O !
Dis and dat and dese and dose ! Your crackling out of your
turn, my Moonster firefly, like always. And 2 R.N. and
Longhorns Connacht, stay off my air! You've grabbed the capital and
you've had the lion's shire since 1542 but there's all the difference
in Ireland between your borderation, my chatty cove, and me. The
leinstrel boy to the wall is gone and there's moreen astoreen for
Monn and Conn. With the tyke's named moke. Doggymens'
nimmer win! You last led the first when we last but we'll first
trump your last with a lasting. Jump the railchairs or take them,
as you please, but and, sir, my queskins first, foxyjack! Ye've as
much skullabogue cheek on you now as would boil a caldron of kalebrose.
Much of the symbolism is very meaningful to me personally, but I can't explain it all right now.
The point of all this is to show that Poliphori seems a lot like a medieval version of Joyce, and that both are "dream books" and contain images closely linked to the Dumbo Dream. Also, given your interest in tracing these things out, I thought it important for you to know about Finnegans Wake.
Oh, and here is one persons take on the whole structure of Finnegans Wake. Note the siglas on top for HCE, ALP, etc. And the "four cycles" are intriguing, of course!
