Rejoyce in Peace: A Study of Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, III.4

All my scholarship is copyrighted at the U.S. Library of Congress. 

Yale is the only “university” in the world where there is NO dissertation defense, which means that:

1) they can perjure themselves and give false witness against you;

2) they can deny the objective facts, i.e. your academic degrees and official recommendation letters from known scholars like Prof. George Lakoff in the Linguistics dep’t at U.C. Berkeley;

3) they can steal your money and intellectual property, committing a multi-million dollar academic and financial fraud by depriving you — and all the family members who depend on you — of your well-deserved academic work, a lifetime of salary, book sales and conference fees, retirement and health-care benefits; 

4) they can maliciously slander you both personally with other so-called “academicians” — i.e. their friends and accomplices, other white-trash academic frauds — and publicly, all over the world, abusing the Internet;

In this way, they believe — but that’s just an article of blind faith, and an irrational belief — that they can conceal the racist crimes of their friends e.g. Mazzotta and Saussy. 

White-trash criminals like Leslie Brisman, see the multi-million dollar financial scam related to Prof. Lakoff below, have been aiding and abetting racist sex-offenders at Yale, e.g. Mazzotta and Saussy, as they keep molesting and discriminating against Africans and other people of color, women and the LGBTQIA+ community. Even little children in the New Haven area have become targets of violence and racist hatred from so-called “faculty” at Yale, as in the case of James Lara and his white-trash friend and supporter, Miss Kathryn Lofton.

By giving false witness against the victims of rape, they would like to silence the powerful voices of Africans and other racially diverse scholars — but that’s never going to happen.

LET’S TALK ABOUT SOME OBJECTIVE FACTS: 

My Academic Resume w/ George Lakoff’s Recommendation to Yale for his Metaphor Class at U.C. Berkeley

During my study at the University of Bologna, est. 1088. I won an international competition based on academic merit to study at U.C. Berkeley on a full fellowship in the Dep’t of Linguistics, when it was still top rated in the United States. For both semesters, fall 2002 and spring 2003, my high GPA qualified me to be on the Dean’s Honors List.

EXHIBIT

U.C. Berkeley, Official Transcripts, fall 2002 – spring 2003.

As shown here, my GPA was equal or above 3.93 in a full load of letter-graded courses for both the fall semester 2002 and the spring semester 2003, which placed me in the top 4% of students in the College of Letters and Science, see also Dean Kwong-loi Shun’s letter below. 

In the fall semester 2002, my classes were:

Linguistics, Metaphor w/ George Lakoff (A); Advanced French (A); Intro to Computers (A-); Advanced German (A).

In the spring semester 2003, my classes were:

English Seminar on James Joyce w/ John Bishop (A); Sociolinguistics w/ Robin Lakoff (A-); Advanced French (A); Advanced German (A).

Dean Kwong-loi Shun’s letter on March 5, 2003.

According to Dean Kwong-loi Shun, “This is a remarkable accomplishment. In order to perform so exceptionally, you must have put many long hours of hard work and study.

I trust that you are as gratified with the results as I am. It gives me great pleasure to place your name on the Letters and Science Dean’s Honors List as a recognition of your achievement. I hope that you continue to find Berkeley an intellectually stimulating environment.

It is the interaction at all levels of students like you with our faculty and staff that helps make Berkeley the exciting place we all feel it is. You will find that your excellent record of accomplishment can open new doors to you. I hope your will investigate the many scholarship and research opportunities listed on the Dean’s Honor List web page, etc.”

Now, I’m sure it was not Dean Kwong-loi Shu’s intention, but his words sound ominous for a victim of rape and sex trafficking. Dean Shu was probably not aware of the fact that I had performed at the highest academic levels despite the fact that I had been sexually molested by one of the so-called professors in the English dep’t, acting with the full complicity of his senior colleagues. 

When Dean Shu writes that it is “the interaction at all levels of students like [me] with our faculty and staff” that makes Berkeley so special, he wasn’t aware of the fact that white-trash sex offenders like John Bishop – and their accomplices, friends and supporters, like Jeffrey Knapp – would actually give a perverted spin to his words.

And when he mentions the power of my objective academic achievements to “open new doors” – as it should always be, in a just society – he didn’t know I was going to be targeted, as a non-binary person of African descent, precisely in one of the private universities on the East Coast that portray themselves as “liberal,” but are in fact full of racist sex offenders such as Saussy and Mazzotta.

George Lakoff’s recommendation letter for the graduate program at Yale.

The U.C. Berkeley course I took with George Lakoff in the dep’t of Linguistics was on Metaphor, his main academic interest, and my final grade was A+, which was the highest grade.

This is Lakoff’s recommendation letter for Yale:

“It is a real pleasure to recommend Margherita Maleti for admission to your Ph.D. program. Ms. Maleti was a student in my course on Metaphor (Linguistics 106) in the fall of 2002. She was one of the two best students in the course, which is saying something since the students in that course were excellent overall. [She] is no ordinary student. She doesn’t merely learn the subject matter – she interrogates it, shines bright light in its eyes, and makes it confess every hint of inadequacy.

Her term paper on Dante was brilliant, insightful, masterful. But what I remember most was her questions in class. Never pedestrian. Always coming at a topic from a new angle, almost always catching me off my feet, forcing me to confront issues I hadn’t thought about before.

What I especially appreciate about [her] is her intellectual persistence. When she asks a question, she expects a full, serious, thoughtful answer every time, and doesn’t let up until she gets one. Not in an offensive way. Quite the opposite, with a seriousness of purpose, a genuine questioning that one can’t help but respect. I hope you admit Ms. Maleti to your program. She will make a lively intellectual addition to your department, and I think she is destined to become an outstanding scholar.”

First of all, it’s important to notice Lakoff’s reference to my Dante essay: “brilliant, insightful, masterful.”

Indeed, I scanned the entire Divine Comedy for metaphors – something that can only be accomplished with previous knowledge of that massive literary work, which had been part of my cultural background for years.

And that shall put an end to academic and financial scams like Giuseppe Mazzotta and ‘The Goodfellas.’

But what Lakoff fails to mention, here, is the fact that the other student he compares me with was a white male, who was born and raised in the United States and very familiar with U.S. colleges/universities. By comparison, and to be fair, that was the first time for me in a U.S. college/university as a non-binary person of African descent. And that was not an English class, but a Linguistics class that took complete mastery of American English and American culture for granted. But as shown in Lakoff’s letter, my questions ‘almost caught him off his feet.’

And people who ask intelligent questions are often un-welcome, especially if they’re not white.

One of the main questions about Lakoff’s class had to do with his choice of a teaching assistant: a woman in her fifties who used to claim in public to be Lakoff’s “intimate friend.” How’s that professional or even legal, exactly? And does this have anything to do with the fact that his wife, Robin, later divorced him?

There were many other questions having to do w/ relaxed ethical standards. For instance, Lakoff’s background was in linguistics and he knew nothing about the medical sciences. In spite of that, he would make many undemonstrated claims about the neural sciences, with no academic qualifications to back that up.

Furthermore, Lakoff ignored U.S. laws on conflict of interests and lobbied to have his wife, Robin, hired in the very same dep’t of Linguistics at Berkeley, doing exactly the same things, so that salary and benefits were double but authorship was ambiguous at best. And the main victims, of course, were other women who didn’t have a “spouse” or “relative” as an insider. This cannot, and does not, happen in European universities.

That’s just another academic and financial fraud made in the U.S.

These are all intellectually probing questions that reveal a lot about American so-called “academia” and what is officially presented as a “country of laws,” even though the evidence doesn’t support that conclusion.

And people who ask probing questions that go at the heart of the problem, and make people feel very uncomfortable about their hypocrisy, are too often un-welcome, especially if they’re Africans and non-binary.

Another research area for Lakoff was “empathy” – of all possible topics – which he presented as a moving force in politics as well. Here’s an interesting quote from one of his interviews online:

“Empathy is why we have the values of freedom, fairness, and equality – for everyone, not just for certain individuals. If we put ourselves in the shoes of others, we will want them to be free and treated fairly. Empathy with all leads to equality: nobody should be treated worse than anyone else.” “Progressive ideals are based on empathy,” cf. Exhibit below. 

Yale and Berkeley present themselves as progressive, or rather, with a façade of progressivism. But the truth is that “empathy,” “fairness” and “justice” is certainly NOT how I was treated by the racist sex offenders denounced in this Criminal Complaint.

That was in fact racist violence and blatant injustice.

And that’s NOT how I was treated by many individuals – including many fake feminists – who helped the sex offenders either loudly and hysterically, e.g. Jane Levin and Kathryn Lofton; or through the code of silence, as the many would-be “academicians” who just watched and let it happen, in typical mafia-style, always hoping to get some money and academic favors out of the situation.

But these crimes are not going to go unpunished, and white-trash criminals go to jail.  

EXHIBIT

White-trash criminals like Leslie Brisman tried to turn my academic record upside down, denying the objective facts and the objective evidence.

Leslie Brisman is a white-trash racist, plagiarist and academic fraud who maliciously slandered me as a “Voodoo Nigger with demons,” blocking my dissertation with the false and illegal claim that I didn’t know metaphors, cf. Prof. George Lakoff’s recommendation letter above. 

That’s a multi-million dollar financial fraud as well as a racist hate crime. 

The truth is that one of my recommenders for Yale was precisely Prof. George Lakoff, from the U.C. Berkeley Linguistics dep’t, and the class I attended with him was precisely on Metaphor, see official transcripts and his recommendation letter above. 

Numbers don’t lie and they prove and demonstrate, as another objective fact, that Leslie Brisman has never produced one single African scholar in his entire, irrelevant “career” as the best un-known scholar of Shakespeare.  

Throughout his worthless, irrelevant career as the best-unknown scholar virtually in any field, Brisman has always abused and defamed Africans and other people of color, giving false witness against them in order to destroy their career and cover up for his rapists friends.

Indeed, a white-trash racist and plagiarist like Brisman should be denounced and condemned to pay for all his racist crimes in the name of Justice, social justice, anti-racism, and equality.             

 

Numbers don’t lie and they prove and demonstrate, as another objective fact,

that Leslie Brisman has never produced one single African scholar in his entire, irrelevant “career.”

SWINE DECONSTRUCTION

In terms of “full disclosure” or lack thereof, none of this would have ever happened if Richard and Jane Levin had been transparent about Saussy’s affiliation with the KKK. Saussy’s father, Tupper Saussy, was a convicted felon, a KKK member, a crazy conspiracy theorist, and an intimate friend and biographer of the same James Earl Ray who murdered Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

No less than the murderer of MLK!!!

If this fact had been made public, as it is required by law,

I would NEVER even have considered a racist and corrupt dep’t like comparative literature at Yale.

After Yale fired and kicked out both Saussy and his ignorant Russian mistress, Miss Olga Solovieva — with her nonsensical dissertation on the “Body of Christ” supervised, or rather plagiarized, by Saussy himself, just to get her passed — both of them are still in close contact with students and scholars at the University of Chicago, creating situations of danger especially for Africans and other people of color, women and the LGBTQIA+ community.  

How do you like the “Body of Christ,” Brisman? 

Is Miss Solovieva a “Voodoo Nigger with demons”? 

No, she’s just the crazy, old bitch of an insider, 

so she must keep stealing money from Africans and other students and scholars of color, right?

***

Here’s another “Voodoo Nigger with demons,” J.K. Rowling, the richest English writer. 

And Christopher Marlowe, and Tolkien, and Goethe, and Dostoevsky — all “Voodoo Niggers with demons.”

But what the fuck does ignorant and bigoted Brisman know about European literary history? 

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING

And Stranger Things, American Horror Story, Twin Peaks, etc. — in fact, the vast majority of Hollywood & Disney production have elements of magic in them. 

All “Voodoo Niggers with demons,” according to racist, white-trash Brisman. 

YOUR SCAM IS OVER!

Fernanda Lopez Aguilar, another victim of racism and rape at Yale,

at the hands of a white-trash racist and academic fraud called Thomas Pogge.  

These racist sex offenders always target people of color! 

We must put an end to rape on campus, and it all starts by telling the truth!

Rejoyce in Peace: A Study of Finnegans Wake III.4

Margherita Maleti

Despite the fact that many argue that James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake is untranslatable and even unintelligible, nothing is in fact more appropriate than translation to facilitate the comprehension of this unparalleled masterpiece of world literature. In the following pages, I will first provide a detailed explanation of the chapter’s plot in a way that it has never been done since its publication, in the belief that only a thorough understanding of the action can guide interpretation and produce valid academic criticism. Next, I will bring the chief thematic clusters to the reader’s attention, in order both to stress the significance of such ideas as compassion and peace, and to examine the role of FW in relation to them.

  1. Who When Where

The initial pages (555.1 – 559.21) introduce the dramatis personae of this “curious drama[s]” (577.32) and set the scene to their physical and psychological deeds. All characters involved are described through elements symbolic of their essence and role (555.5 – 558.32), but their portrait is interrupted when Jerry, the elder of the twins, cries in his tumultuous sleep, thus awakening HCE and ALP, the parental couple. So, all the tension built up in these pages deflates abruptly as the child’s cry echoes through the house, breaking the narrative flow and bringing us back to the indeterminacy of the beginning: “Where are we at all? and whenabouts in the name of space?” (558.33). Each temporal sentence opens “Sirens”-like with a leit -motif – a repetition with variation on the motif of the night, tailored to the nature of the characters described in the section itself: “nat by night by naught by naket” (555.5) depicts Mamalujo – the four Evangelists with their donkey – and the twins, Jerry and Kevin; “night by silentsailing night” (556.1) is dedicated to the youngest daughter, Issy; “now upon nacht” (556.23) describes Sackerson, the handyman employed at HCE’s tavern and one of his alter-egos; “wan fine night and the next fine night and last find night” (556.31) narrates the story of how Kate the servant found HCE lying on the floor – intoxicated after drinking his customers’ alcoholic leftovers – and steered him upstairs toward his bedroom; “each and every juridical sessions night” (557.13) illustrates the Twelve, engaged in a mock-process to sentence HCE for his and their own sins; “niece by nice by neat by natty” (558.21) is about the Maggies, Issy’s twenty-eight school- and playmates; and finally, “in their bed of trial” (558.26) introduces the protagonists with an epical tone: HACLEP, no more in their prime but still united, are… something which remains unsaid, since “a cry off” (558.32) breaks and redirects the stream of unconsciousness. Here we can imagine the couple, suspended between sleep and wakefulness, glancing at each other’s creased face with misty eyes and an interrogative look (558.33f.). This is the first occurrence in FW where the parents appear to be awaken and acting in real life – although the dividing line between dream and reality is extremely blurred in FW , where the first is in fact no less real than the latter. What follows is an extremely dry description of HACLEP’s bedroom and personal belongings, as one would deliver in perceiving external reality immediately after re-emerging from sleep: sentences are telegraphic in style, but the objects they depict are highly symbolic and contribute to further characterize the protagonists.

  1. Matt’s View – First Position of Harmony

The narration from Matt’s viewpoint (559.21 – 563.36) is clearer if divided in four sub-sections: the first illustrates HACLEP’s physical appearances (559.22-29), their reaction to Jerry’s cry (559.30 – 560.6), their house (560.7-21), and the bond uniting them (560.22-36); the second introduces the children (561.1-9) to focus on Issy (561.10 – 562.15); the third opens with a presentation of the sons (562.16-22) to develop Kevin’s portrait (562.22-36); while the fourth describes Jerry (563.1-23) to end with a philosophical reflection on the twins and the nature of time (563.32-36). The initial sub-section is interwoven with expressions borrowed from the field of games, chess in particular, which is a literary homage to Lewis Carroll ( Alice Through the Looking Glass ). Thus, an extraordinarily rich text emerges from the overlapping of chess terminology with theatre references, creating the impression that a drama of epic dimensions is unfolding, where power relationships are governed by fixed, unchangeable rules. As soon as Jerry’s cry echoes through the house, petite ALP snatches the lamp and rushes toward the staircase to the second floor, where the children’s bedrooms are, while HCE follows her heavily, hindered by his stout build. This is also the first occurrence in FW where we are explicitly told their family name: they are “the Porters” (560.22). Their union is uncommonly solid compared to other matches, nowadays – in fiction or reality (560.28ff) – so much so that their individualities merge to form a “pateramater” (560.28), hence the name HACLEP. In order to explain their bond, Joyce quotes himself in “Ithaca,” where Bloom and Molly are described in terms of “an arruginated male key in the hole of an unstable female lock” – corresponding in FW to: “As keymaster fits the lock it weds . . .” (560.29ff). But that concept of penetration evolves here in inter-penetration, since ALP is HCE’s “streamline secret” (560.30), i.e. his Jungian Anima, his feminine soul represented symbolically by the Liffey and literarily by the stream of unconsciousness of FW itself. After HACLEP reach the second floor, the focus of the narration centers on Issy, highlighting her natural charm and how HCE sublimates his Oedipal attraction to her, in one of the most significant and touching passages in the chapter. As noted by McHugh, here Joyce takes inspiration from the apocryphal gospel of James and completely subverts its message to express a triple wish for the women of HCE’s (and his own) family – that they may pursue and find their own happiness, instead of following the empty, pitiless rules of society, which would doom them to a life of sorrow and obedience to the symbols of male authority (562.7-11). The narration then shifts to the twins, apparently different but fundamentally equal: Kevin, extroverted and sanguineous, will grow up to be a protector of the status quo, becoming either dean or policeman (562.32 and 18); Jerry, instead, is the son with artistic temperament, introverted and bilious, representing the family’s black sheep and society’s scapegoat (563.3).

  1. Mark’s View – Second Position of Discordance

This section is the longest of the chapter (564.1 – 582.29), which reveals all its thematic import. Even though it simply narrates how HACLEP enter their children’s rooms to make sure they are tranquilly asleep, it encompasses deep theological and philosophical reflections on God and history, including HCE’s symbolic understanding and acceptance of Man’s heart of darkness, preliminary to his spiritual and bodily union with ALP “in their bed of trial” (558.26). So, from his point of observation behind HACLEP’s backs, Mark starts his tale by comparing their “bodom fundus” (564.34, i.e. their bottoms) to Dublin’s Phoenix Park (564.1–565.5). Here like in infinite other loci , not just in FW but in his whole literary production, Joyce is writing his “farced epistol to the hibruws” (228.33f.) using the vilest of materials, “litter,” to convey a deep meaning in “letter[s]” (93.24) and only those who are willing to humbly “stoop” (18.17) can grasp his universal message. The author proceeds using symbols: Phoenix Park stands for the Garden of Eden – “where anciently [our] first murders” (564.29) fell from grace and thus “bequeathed us their ills” (579.32), while corporal functions like sex, defecation, urination and flatulence – all originating from that body part allegorically described here – stand for the original sin, since in human consciousness they are associated with feelings of guilt, shame, rejection and need for psychological displacement. Mark’s narration illustrates how ALP sooths Jerry, who has been having nightmares of “phantares” and a “bad bold faathern” (565.19-20). This echoes “Telemachus,” where Haines dreams of a panther, a symbol of Christ – which makes Stephen remember his own dream anticipating his encounter with Bloom, a Christ-like figure; but it also reminds of “Scylla and Charybdis,” where Stephen theorizes on the uncertainty of paternity starting from an analysis of Shakespeare’s biography and a literary criticism of Hamlet . To all these layers of meaning, Freudian theory of Oedipal conflict is added to obtain a crucial superimposition of images. According to Freud, the father represents a menace to the son in that he threatens the latter with punishment should he persist in desiring the mother. So, if the father is like a panther and the panther is a symbol of Christ, it follows that the father also symbolizes Christ. Here then, HCE is compared to God – or rather, emphasis is given to his divine part, which is by no means the only one. After soothing Jerry, the parents exchange a brief dialogue in Esperanto (565.25-28), saying that his tumultuous dreams have caused him to utter childish words in his sleep. As a linguistic utopia, Esperanto aimed at facilitating the union of European peoples: it should not come as a surprise, then, if Joyce chose to have his protagonists from Chapelizod, Dublin, speak a universal language in a book with which he intended to address the issues at the core of human nature and to uphold the supreme principle of peace just before the outbreak of World War Two. Also in Esperanto is the line of the director of scene, who – after instructing each character on their role in the drama (566.7-25) – exhorts HCE to cover his loins (566.26f.), since his sons are looking at him, and he should preserve their innocence. This “stagemanager’s prompt” (558.36) is of course Joyce’s, acting in his narrative like God in His creation. The following “vision” (566.28) is Jerry’s, who catches a glimpse of HCE’s penis (“That crag!”) and scrotum (“Those hullocks!”, 566.29). This sight is part of his understanding of the mystery of sex, which he will later disclose to his brother Kevin (293, in the next Vichian cycle). Next is a series of allusions to HCE’s condom (566.33 – 567.13), which, apparently, the good man is wearing well in advance, maybe to explicitly invite ALP to love. She giggles a bit at the sight of her partner’s protected erection (“I leer . . . because I must see a buntingcap of so a pinky on the point,” 567.6-7), which causes her to renew her love to him (“O my big, O my bog, O my bigbagbone!,” 567.6). Just like Bloom’s thoughts in “Lestrygonians” are covertly directed by the movements of his empty stomach, here HCE’s stream follows the uneven intensity of his erection. In this narcissistic fantasy, HCE imagines to be, in succession: a king (567.17), a celebrant (567.21), a mayor (568.17), a baronet (568.25), a king again (568.34), a high prelate (569.20), a rich squire (570.15), a baronet again, this time explicitly “handsome” (570.19), and finally, a lord (570.20). The passage dedicated to HACLEP’s urination (570.26 – 571.26) represents the heart of III.4, delivering the keys to comprehend FW ‘s message. Why should urine possess such a profound meaning? The answer is as straightforward as Joyce’s Weltanschauung , that he could complicate to gorgeous unintelligibility thanks to his artistic sensitivity and literary genius: urine is water and water is connected to fertility and life, hence to the feminine principle, essential to reach enlightenment. Furthermore, urine is one of the symbols of the original sin representing Man’s inborn imperfection, which can be comprehended, accepted, and overcome through compassion only (“O pity!” 570.27) – our path to spiritual progress. Here, HCE is the first to feel the need “to go somewhere” (570.26), later followed by ALP (571.17f.). Between their duties, lies the revelation of how FW should be read. Its words are like “brilling waveleaplights” (571.1), discontinuous light-waves of Carrollian ascendancy (“brilling” is a loan-word from the Jabberwocky lyric; while a “blend,” 571.3, is a portmanteau -word), issuing from “a clear springwell” (571.2) near our place of origin (“our park,” 571.3). These light-waves are made to be sung (“Please, say me how sing you them,” 571.1f.) and their message can be grasped by everyone, even fools, if using “soundsense” (121.15), i.e. the sense of hearing (“makes the daft to hear all blend,” 571.3), which is the first key to FW . The second key is “endearment” (571.4), that is, the capacity to conceive human affection, illuminating all kind of obscurity and making everything so “clear!” (571.4). The third key is literary reverberation. Indeed, translating “the bookstaff branchings” (571.5f.) was for me the proof that one must really “stoop” in order to “conquer” Joyce’s message. Humble enough to check the meaning of “book” in my own language, I realized that I really did not know it – nor its Latin etymology, designating a writing support obtained from the tree’s inner cortex whose scientific name is “phloem” (“floema,” in Italian). And exactly like a flowered poem is FW – the reason of this will become “clear!” examining the role of the Maggies in relation to the fundamental concept of peace. The fourth key to FW is anesthetic: far from the maddening crowd, Freud with cocaine and opiates and Joyce with alcohol – “this pewterpint of Gilbey’s goatswhey which is his prime consolation” (558.1f.) – could find the peace of mind to create. And indeed, the biblical tree of life, which is also the tree of “litteringture” (570.18), possesses here “druggeted stems” (571.6). The fifth key is physical love as conceived in Tantric spiritual philosophy (“Do you can their tantrist spellings?,” 571.6-7), according to which a disciplined sex practice can unite and enhance male and female energy, becoming a path to spiritual advancement. In Tantrism, the feminine principle (“O ma ma!,” 571.12) can guide Man through “all the woods so wild” (556.17f.), i.e. through “esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte” (Dante, Inferno , canto I, v. 5) which is “life’s unblest” (563.13). Humanity needs this “able schoolmistress’ aid” to “lease” this complex world (from the German “lessen”: to read) and un-weave the word of FW (“I can lese, skillmistress aiding,” 571.7) in order to “take a message” (571.8) of peace and progress toward enlightenment. Symbol of peace is the “chapeolofeases” (571.11), the “littleeasechapel” (571.18) that is both a urinal and a vagina, “sold for [a] song” (571.11) by the traitors of human nature (“Sell me, my soul dear!,” 570.13), brainlessly avid, who can never get the right price in selling it, since it is of course priceless. Giving it up to any Church (“cloister . . . monkshood,” 571.13ff) could only cause Man to feel “sorrowful” and “triste to death” (571.13ff), while “enjoycing” life to the fullest would render us “allso gay” (571.16) and illuminate (“blanching . . . light,” 571.15ff) the dark depths of death (571.14, where “ivytod” contains the German “ Tod ”: death). Pity and compassion are essential to understand and “pppease” (571.21) basic human needs, symbolized here by urination, which fulfillment only can lead to peace – heaven on Earth (“O, peace, this is heaven!,” 571.19ff). The focus then shifts on the parents’ dialogue. The lines in Wakese are considerations on marriage and birth giving (571.28ff), as well as reflections on the children’s revolutionary character (571.32ff), destined by nature to replace their parents and subvert the status quo they embody. The lines in plain English, instead, tell us that Jerry is now “quieter” (571.27) and that, before returning downstairs, HCE wants to make sure also Issy is sleeping well. Her bedroom door is open and he peeps inside, warned by ALP to be “careful” (572.13). Following next are two trials (“in their bed of trial,” 558.26): a penal (572.21 – 573.32) and a civil case (573.33 – 576.9). Why should they take place hic et nunc ? But of course, it is human nature we are considering here, since HACLEP are our forefathers, “Eve and Adam” (3.1), as well as each of us in turn, “everywans in turruns” (557.9). As soon as HCE peeks inside Issy’s room, an abyss of dismay opens in front of him and he perceives the horrorific beauty of Man’s soul. The fact that he takes off heaven’s gauze, God of Heavens! (“Gauze off heaven!,” 566.28), when looking inside his daughter’s room, is in line with the Electra complex theorized by Freud: HCE loves Issy fatherly and neurotically – as every good father loves his own daughter – so that her room represents “his core” (590.27), his essence and the secret of his nature. Both proceedings are intricate, disconcerting, absurd, and comical – but paradoxically almost devoid of portmanteau -words, so that their superficial reading is rather unproblematic compared to the average Wakean page. On the other hand, their complexity lies both in the syntax, very tortuous and convoluted, and in the contents. These in particular are extremely obscure, masked as they are by a first veil of moral depravation or bureaucratic over-sophistication, and by a second veil of procedural flaws that Joyce intentionally inserted to make the meaning decipherable only with great effort. “Let us consider” (572.18) the first case. The criminal prosecution is written in a legalese reminiscent of the Gothic-novel style, that Joyce renders monumental and universal at once, since under process here are not only HACLEP and family, but the whole human race. The Hamletish question, the “proposer” (572.19) with which we are presented, is whether Honophrius has the right to ask his wife Anita to commit adultery with one of his acquaintances, Magravius – whom he has indirectly instructed to “solicit [her] chastity” (572.30) – while continuing to render “conjugal duty when demanded” (573.9). In other words, Honophrius yearns for a love triangle to satisfy his neurotically deviant desire for his wife – which amounts to taking Bloom’s passive acceptance of Molly’s affair with Boylan one step further, toward an explicit request for unfaithfulness. Undoubtedly, then, betrayal in general and the love triangle in particular remain central themes throughout Joyce’s literary production, from Exiles though Ulysses up to FW . From this “proposer,” we learn that “Honophrius, Felicia, Eugenius and Jeremias are consanguineous to the lowest degree” (572.25ff) – an ambiguous expression indicating either that they belong to the same family or, if considered verbatim , that they are only remotely related. If we choose to accept the first and most fascinating hypothesis, as we are led to do by name similarity, Honophrius corresponds to HCE, Anita to ALP, Eugenius to Kevin, Jeremias to Jerry, Mauritius to Sackerson and Fortissa to Kate. In this account, it appears that everybody abuses everyone – which makes it especially appalling – and only after close examination can we discover that this debauchery is only a decoy. As a matter of fact, Mauritius and Magravius are alter-egos of Honophrius, while his sons Eugenius and Jeremias are the other two parts of his psyche, among which interchange is natural. In the same way, Fortissa is only an older version of Anita, and with Felicia they embody a feminine trinity, exactly as Honophrius, Eugenius and Jeremias personify a masculine trinity – both human expressions of God. Instead, what is truly remarkable here is that the most tolerated form of incest, that between father and daughter, is carefully avoided with the aid of both parents: HCE (who allegedly commits only “simple infidelities with Felicia, a virgin,” 572.23) and ALP (in order to “save the virginity of Felicia for Magravius,” 573.14ff). What in fact does take place is the far more tabooed incest between mother and son, since Michael is Kevin’s alter-ego. In order to realize this, we must remember the votive picture of “Michael, lance, slaying Satan, dragon with smoke, over [the] mantelpiece” (559.11ff) in HACLEP’s bedroom. There, the warrior Archangel is simply called Michael, as if he were a member of the family – and indeed he is, since Kevin is destined to become “commandeering chief of the choirboy’s brigade” (555.16ff) and in the bedroom we see him “happily to sleep . . . like the blissed angel he looks so like” (562.24ff). So, Anita is said to have “committed double sacrilege with Michael . . . a perpetual curate” (573.3ff) and it is always Michael who “dispenses her from yielding to Honophrius” (573.18ff), acting like a judge by reserving “her case for tomorrow for the ordinary Guglielmus” (573.24). In both cases, then, Anita is saved by her sons: here by Kevin and later by Jerry. Despite the curate’s postponement, the fact that no sentence is passed on the present case suggests that it cannot be properly answered: possibly because the conflict within human heart is unsolvable, so that the only option is to play for time and compromise between the deepest passions and the given moral code. The second proceeding is defined as “the commonest of all cases arising out of umbrella history” (573.35ff), where “umbrella” (slang for condom) and the verb “to arise” already intimate that the matter under discussion is still of sexual nature – and indeed sex is “the commonest of all cases” working in favor of “the lodgment of the species” (574.17). This case has a double procedural flaw: first, the defendant is never explicitly mentioned and second, she appears to be one of the partners of the suing firm itself, a “disseized” (574.5, both deceased and divided) company named Tangos, Ltd. The latter represents the Roman Catholic Church, acting through its trustee, “one Jocundus Fecundus Xero Pecundus Coppercheap” (574.12ff) later called “Monsignore Pepigi” (575.29), standing for HCE. The action was undertaken because, “for the payment of tithes due” (574.8f.), an invalid “crossed cheque” (574.14) was “drawn by the senior partner” (574.16) of Tangos, later identified as “the depleted . . . Breyfawkes” (574.36), formerly “Brerfuchs” (574.4). Given that the fox (“Fuchs,” in German) is for Joyce symbol of Christ at least since “Nestor,” and that the one entity who could possibly arrange “the lodgment of the species” is God, what we have here is a contradiction: it is God himself who tries to settle the human “debt” (574.10) to the Church, with a “crossed cheque” that is in fact “a good washable pink” (574.25), refused by Irish “national misery” (574.18) and free to circulate “among holders of Pango stock, a rival concern” (574.28), representing the Protestant Church. Now, only the “junior partner” of Tango “could be found” (575.2), a “Barren” who turned out to be an old woman named Ann Doyle, representing ALP, “from the proletarian class” (575.5), who left the box of the jury to bear witness, delivering “a jurymiad . . . in doylish” (575.9ff), i.e., a jeremiad in her native dialect, actually sounding like a true self-defense. This, added to the fact that “Judge Jeremy” (575.32) turns down Pepigi’s requests claiming “contractual incapacity” (576.2ff) for the woman, suggests that Ann is the real defendant in this lawsuit. Her debt (i.e., her guilt) is birth control, for “she had often . . . discounted her corset checks” (575.9-11) to “Mr Brakeforth’s . . . in exchange at nine months from date without issue” (575.11), where Mr Brakeforth represents God and the failed issue stands for Ann’s avoided pregnancies. As an “act of settlement” (575.27), she offered herself sexually to all those present “in that little green courtinghousie” (575.26) – particularly to Pepigi, in order to liquidate the debt and obtain his forgiveness (575.28). Indeed, the latter “seemed to proffer the steadiest interest towards her” (575.31) and would have accepted the deal, but Judge Jeremy, representing ALP’s son Jerry, refused to listen to the jurors – as corrupted as those condemning Parnell (575.35ff) – and decreed that Pepigi’s requests were inane and that the suing firm had no right whatsoever to payment (576.6ff). As noted before, Jeremy reaches this decision on the grounds of Ann’s “ contractual incapacity ,” since she was born in a time and place “ where mamy’s mancipium act did not apply” (576.4). In other words, Ann could not be held liable for the “ debt” because she had been born and brought up in bondage, and therefore could not choose for her own destiny. The transition from vision to reality is marked by Jerry’s sighing in sleep (576.10), which is also a sight of relief for the heartening conclusion of the trial. Before returning to bed, ALP prays for her sons and husband – that the “hovering dreamwings” (576.14) may guard and protect them, while the twins reciprocate with their own prayer (576.18 – 577.35) for their “forced payrents” (576.27). The narration resumes with a new portrait of the parental couple (578.3-28) and the description of ALP’s Sunday clean-ups to the beat of jazz music (578.21f.) is particularly touching, suggesting not only HCE’s love for her, but also Joyce’s own for Nora, since only an enamored man could give such a tender picture of his partner in their home intimacy. The answer to the question: “Which route are they going?” (578.29) is provided two pages later (580.23): “They near the base of the chill stair,” directed to their bedroom. Between are: an advertisement for their tavern-hotel (579.6), some of the rules guiding their home (579.8-24), and an account of their story (579.27 – 580.22), the tale “sub specie aeternitatis of hemale man all unbracing to omniwomen” (581.18), i.e., of every man and woman who fall in love and start a family, thus renewing the infinite circle of life. Innumerable accounts can be given of this universal tale – in the shape of a rhyme (580.26-36) or a popular song (582.21-27) – but it is always the same, different and immutable, repeating eternally through “life’s high carnage of semperidentity” (582.15).

  1. Luke’s View – Third Position of Concord

Luke’s view extends from 582.29 to 590.22 like a running commentary on HACLEP’s conjunction, that is both a love meeting and a match – and indeed cricket terminology is engrafted in its description, which is another literary homage to Lewis Carroll ( Alice in Wonderland , in the croquet variant). These pages are the most sexually dense of FW and certainly, if 1939 censorship could ever have seen through them, they would certainly have caused Joyce another trial for obscenity. But the thick veil of language operates a natural selection, so that comprehension is possible only to those who “stoop” into the book with an unprejudiced mind. Before introducing the matter, Joyce warns bigots to “change here,” while further reading is advisable for the open-minded only, who can therefore “keep [their] seats” (582.32ff). We can formulate the core of his message saying that physical love is as flawed as the men and women who practice it, but if approached with a compassionate, empathetic mentality, it is also a privileged channel to spiritual evolution. Symbol of Man’s imperfection is HCE’s “browbrand” (582.31), later called “the tarrant’s brand on his hottoweyt brow” (583.29ff), a rash representing Cain’s mark, the stigma of original sin, which we are requested to “redspot” (582.31), i.e. we are asked to respect and commiserate human imperfection, congenital hence inescapable. The couple share their love in many ways, and it is up to the reader’s intuition and sensitivity for the language to understand which ones in particular: anal intercourse (“Sidome,” 582.30, is soundsense for “sodomy”; “bucky brown,” 583.9, contains the Italian soundsense “holes,” so that the expression yields “brown holes”); “fellatio” (583.1ff and 584.3ff); frontal position (“elbiduubled,” 583.27, suggests “on both elbows”; “the bulloge she bears,” 583.4, contains “bull” and “bear,” that in financial jargon indicate a rising and falling market, respectively) and Molly’s favorite (583.34ff; in “Hades” Bloom considers that they must have conceived Rudy “that morning in Raymond terrace she was at the window, watching the two dogs at it . . . And the sergeant grinning up”). This last quote from Ulysses is also relevant because it reintroduces the theme of the love triangle, a neurotically diverted fantasy of betrayal “with intent to excitation” (557.22) already present in the first trial, since that Magravius is dangerously similar to this “Magrath” (584.5), for whom ALP appears to be longing while making love to the father of her children. The question whether these lines belong to ALP’s stream or rather to HCE’s own, is I think ill-posed: in all probability it is a shared fantasy, since adultery – real or imagined – can be rewarding for both partners entangled in a sado-masochistic role game. As a matter of fact, the possibility of unfaithfulness is clearly reciprocal in the sentence: “Three for two will do for me, and he for thee, and she for you” (584.10ff, punctuation mine). The climax is reached when HACLEP orgasm in unison with the song of an androgynous “hencock” echoing from the neighboring courtyards, whose unity symbolizes HACLEP’s own in the moment of ecstasy. Most commentators assume that this love act is unsatisfactory for ALP, basing on the two polysemic sentences: “You never wet the tea! And you may go rightoway back to your Aunty Dilluvia, Humprey, after that!” (585.31-33), that they interpret as a reproach for HCE and an indirect admission of failure. But Joyce’s endeavor in FW was to apply Bruno’s philosophical principle of the identity of contraries to language and literature by conveying, in a single expression, one meaning and its opposite: so the first line, coming after two imperatives, may in fact be a recommendation to use contraceptives (“to wet the tea” means “to pour the brewed tea into the teapot”); while the second may imply that HACLEP deserve each other, both no more in their prime (“Aunty Dilluvia” contains “aunt” and is soundsense for “antediluvian”), and it also may be a biblical allusion, since God sent the deluge to punish the impious for their immoral practices (like birth control). Furthermore, those commentators fail to notice that HACLEP’s “favors” are “since safely enjoined” (584.30, i.e. jointly enjoyed) and that ALP, “the queenbee he staggerhorned, blesses her bliss” (590.28, punctuation mine). Finally, a linguistic analysis supports the view that HACLEP do in fact enjoy a common orgasm. Otherwise, why should the hen of the Dorans produce a male “kikkery key” (584.20-21), in the same way ALP “had to kick a laugh” (583.26)? Because she, like ALP by her partner, has been waken up by “her gallows bird,” the old “cock of the Morgans” (584.23-25), with whom she mates, while their respective cries merge like their bodies. Of course this “hencock” represents HACLEP: both the animal and the human couple are engaged in copulation early in the morning and reach ecstasy simultaneously, as we see at 585.3-5: “Echolo choree coroh choree chorico! How me O my youhou my I youtou to I O?” The first exclamation contains the Italian “eccolo” meaning “here it comes” (the orgasm, ça va sans dire ) and a mix of “coccodè” and “chicchirichì” (Italian onomatopoeias for “cackle” and “cock-a-doodle-do”, respectively); while the second exclamation reproduces the coming together of the partners’ consciousnesses. As a matter of fact, HACLEP are still confused after the “closure” (585.27), since “Humbo” is invited to “lock [his] kekkle up” and “Anny” to “blow [her] wickle out” (585.30). Even before the apex is reached, the credits start to roll like at the end of a film, for whose “exclusive pigtorial rights pardon” is asked to our “honour” (584.36) – in case the latter was tarnished by these “weekreations” (585.1, “recreations,” but also “divine creations,” since the “weekly creation” par excellence was the universe). So, “gratias” (585.35) are rendered in succession to: “tight anne” (584.32, ALP); “his personneel” (584.33, HCE); “Miss Glimglow” (585.5, the lamp); “Master Mettresson” (585.6, the mattress), and “patient ringasend” (585.8, the condom). Specifically to contraception is dedicated a thematically dense passage (585.8-19) praising its function as an aid to social improvement and personal growth. Performing a crucial role also in the civil case, the theme of birth control was evidently close to Joyce’s heart, who in Ulysses depicted Stephen’s family like his own: much too large – both for his mother’s physical endurance and for his father’s temperament and financial possibilities. Here, reference to contraception is made with the phrase: “his auricular of Malthus” (585.11), Thomas Malthus being the English economist and Protestant parson (1766-1834) who theorized that, because population increases at a geometrical rate while food production at an arithmetic one, the former can exceed the latter determining a return to subsistence level conditions – a catastrophe that can only be avoided using such forces as misery, moral restraint, and vice. To keep population growth under check, Malthus advocated moral discipline and condemned contraception as an impious practice; his writings, however, had a strong influence on later theorists like Francis Place (1771-1854), whose neo-Malthusian movement was the first to support contraception as a benefit to society. This suited Joyce perfectly right – much less so did moral restraint: and in fact in FW he subverts Malthus’ stance on “vice,” covertly suggesting other ways to avoid pregnancy without renouncing one’s own sexual life – as we realize noticing that this “auricular of Malthus” also contains the Italian slang for “derrière.” By calling it a “promethean paratonnerwetter” (585.11), Joyce compares the discovery of contraception to that of fire, since both marked a point of no return in human evolution. But unlike the mythical gift of Prometheus – who for his insolent theft was doomed to eternal punishment – contraception represents a shelter from God’s wrath, as we see considering that “paratonnerwetter” contains a paratonnerre, i.e., a conductor of lightning. And indeed, according to this account, it was contraception which “first taught love’s lightning the way . . . to conduct itself” (585.12ff), i.e., it had a guiding function for the women and men who wanted to love each other physically without getting their fingers burnt. Furthermore, since a free and responsible love life can be a path to spiritual growth, this “laboursaving deviser[s]” (585.15), combined with “pity” and “mercy” (585.12ff) for the flawed human nature, allowed them to progress toward enlightenment (“love’s lightning the way”). The bracketed comments in this passage are uttered by ALP, who gently invites HCE to exit after love using her most distinctive quality, i.e., compassion. Further, more explicit invitations to empathy are: “condeal with him! . . . kindly feel for her!” ( 585.17-19), that we can interpret as referring to human nature and fate, marked by imperfection and death – and indeed we all are “still life with death in[us]born” (585.17). This phrase, one of the most lyrical of the whole chapter, is in fact referred to a most prosaic vision, i.e., HCE’s semen inside the condom. Once again, we can only feel the sincerest admiration for Joyce’s intellectual height and literary genius, capable to turn “litter” into “letter[s]” and, here, into pure philosophy. As a last provocation to the moral code of his time, the author states in an extremely poetic and unusually crystal manner that HACLEP are not married and “repeal[s] an act of union to unite in bonds of schismacy” (585.25ff) – like himself and Nora – since their bond is much more profound than a legal contract. Indeed, they are “wedded now evermore in annastomoses” (585.22ff), where ALP’s name is grafted into “anastomose,” defined in 1913 Webster’s Dictionary as the phenomenon causing channels to meet and unite or run into each other as rivers – exactly as ALP is the Liffey and HCE the sea, her “cold father, [her] cold mad feary father” (628.1ff). The following paragraph (585.34 –586.18) contains a series of orders, some of which extremely comical, representing the return of the Super-ego after the fusion experienced in the ecstasy of love. HACLEP are warned not to forget the condom between the sheets (“Never divorce in the bedding the glove that will give you away,” 586.4ff) or else the maid could find it and start a rumor that – passed on by HCE’s twelve old customers and modified by the Liffey – would arrive at those loud-mouthed washerwomen (of chapter I.8) and thus spread all across Dublin. Gossip could originate from the inside as well as from the outside, where “pollysigh patrolman Seekersenn” (586.28) is observing HACLEP’s “dumbshow” (559.18) while on the beat, as the lamplight projects their shadows on the window blind, so that “the man in the street can see the coming event . . . It will be known through all Urania soon” (583.15ff). This image reminds of the marvelous ending scene of “Ithaca,” where Bloom and Stephen experience a moment of true spiritual communion observing Molly’s illuminated window and the mystery of human nature in each other’s eyes, eventually cementing this amity by urinating together while watching “the heaventree of stars hung with humid nightblue fruit.” Following next, to the end of Luke’s view, is the umpteenth account of HCE’s misdemeanor in Phoenix Park, provided by one of the three soldiers witnessing the scene. This version has that “pubchat” style (586.1) forbidden in the preceding page, which – added to the fact that the narration includes an episode in a tavern – renders it strongly reminiscent of “Cyclops,” where Bloom is a stranger among fanatic Irish nationalists exactly like HCE is a “refugee” (587.18) among the privates. Here the narrator evidently despises HCE, but his fellow soldier Jimmy d’Arcy – whom he asks to corroborate the tale – shows inexplicably sympathetic with the civilian. Indeed, behind this “Jimmy the chapelgoer” (587.35ff) hides Joyce himself, who stopped being a churchgoer to become a worshipper of the “chapelofeases.” And certainly not to the narrator belongs line 588.14 (“Whose dolour, O so mine!”), containing two key principles of Joyce’s worldview, here explicitly linked: compassion and the eternal feminine, the former embodied by the latter in the figure of ALP. So, what did really happen in Phoenix Park? Is it any clearer after 588 pages? Yes, it is. The nuisance is not ascribable to HCE alone, since it was actually a triangulation of mischievous looks, as revealed by the frequent allusions to sight: “ we must spy” (588.3); “ her point of view” (588.7); “ seepoint” (588.15); “ glimpsed” (588.21); “ mizpah” (588.24, soundsense for the Italian imperative “mira!”: aim!); “ peerless” (588.25). This game of intertwined looks takes place between the three drinking soldiers, the two urinating girls and HCE, who experiences a solitary erection while evacuating his bowels. Defecation is connected with him at 588.5, “his defences down during his wapping stillstand,” reminiscent of the previous “ deretane denudation” (557.22) and again it is referred to with: “ Number two coming! Full inside!” (588.21) where “number two” euphemistically denotes faeces, as “number one” indicates urine. The latter is associated with the feminine principle, as we see at 588.6-9, “ pip it, she simply must, she says . . . keep her flouncies off the grass while paying the wetmenots a musichall visit .” Here, the forget-me-nots become “ wetmenots ,” because this Pipette of Swiftian ascendancy is watering them with her “ pip it” (Italian soundsense for “urine”) producing joyous Joycean Chamber [pot] music . Again, urination is hinted at with: “ Mizpah low, youyou, number one, in deep humidity!” (588.24ff), where the repeated personal pronoun reveals that the urinating girls are two. As for the soldiers, their drinking activity is described at 588.11ff, where they are said to swallow up “ two bottles of joy with a shandy . . . and a fino oloroso .” This sinful primal scene in the Garden of Eden causes God’s wrath to manifest itself with a “fulmenbomb” (588.20), i.e., the thunderbolt that, according to Vico, terrorized the first humans and instilled a religious feeling in them. Afterwards, as a direct consequence of Man’s fall, comes the eternal, universal tale of the coupling between “ lasses” and “ lads” (588.35 – 589.4), populating the Earth with ego-centered little souls, each traveling “ rushroads to riches and cross [ing] slums of lice” (589.4ff). This account turns into HCE’s personal story (589.20 – 590.12), intertwined with Joyce’s own. “ Let us consider” how. Both capitalized a great interest: in order to do so, HCE used commercial subterfuge (“ his index on the balance ,” 589.13), while Joyce snatched Carrollian portmanteau -words from “ the baggage coach ahead” (589.14ff) – exactly like Stephen picked his nose (“ the baggage coach ahead” ) after plagiarizing Douglas Hyde’s poem on Sandymount Strand (“Proteus”). Joyce’s undercover autobiography takes the form of a countdown from seven to zero, reminiscent of God’s creation. Number seven is his abjuration of Catholic religion: “ he wandered out of his farmer’s health and so lost his early parishlife” (589.21ff), while number six is his discovery of sex: “ six junelooking flamefaces straggled wild out of their turns through his parsonfired wicket, showing all shapes of striplings in sleepless tights” (589.22-25). Number five is quite eventful (589.25-29): it marks God’s punishment for his past “vicious” life, as shown by the many allusions to the deluge (“ in undated times, misflooded, a just two of a feather, wading, reflotation”) ; it represents his money and sperm squandering (“ a main chanced to burst and misflooded his fortunes ,” 589.26ff), but it is also very fertile and fruitful, bringing forth the composition of “ foulplay ,” i.e., unfair plays inspired by feelings of revenge (“ wrothing” is soundsense for “writing in wrath”) and love (“ his fives’ court” is soundsense for “his wife’s courtship”), as well as the birth of two children, Giorgio and Lucia (“ a just two of a feather” ). The following pivotal moments fit into HCE’s story – representing Mamalujo, the three privates and the two maids (“ four hurrigan gales ; three boy buglehorners ; two hussites ,” 589.30-33) – but the last one (589.35 – 590.3) is again referred to Joyce, being a quotation from Portrait (ch. V), where Stephen narrates his father’s story to Cranly (“ something in a distillery . . .”) . Here, the “ explosium of his distilleries” (589.36) also stands for his orgasm, after the “ two hussites . . . left him . . . to pay himself off in kind remembrances” (589.33-35). This solitary ecstasy “ dropped him . . . leareyed and letterish” (590.2), i.e., fascinated by the young girls (like Lear by his daughters), void of sperm (from the German “leer”: empty) and full of “ litter” to turn into “ letter[s] .” The following paragraph (590.4-12) ironically discloses the Joyces’ tendency to treachery. On the financial side, John Joyce’s ruinous management of money was an “ ill” he evidently “ bequeathed” his son James, both insolvent debtors, well-known to companies like “ Lloyd’s” (590.5) that of course would never grant them a loan, “ not for beaten wheat . . . thanks!” (590.6). On the artistic side, FW is but James’ “ last tryon to march through the grand tryomphal arch” (590.9f.), i.e., his last literary forgery (“ I go to . . . forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race,” Portrait , ch. V) meant as a pass to history.

  1. John’s view – Last position of solution

John’s view occupies only the conclusive lines (590.22-30) and its “tableau final” (590.23) portrays HACLEP horizontal in bed after love, calmly enjoying each other’s presence in the early morning hours before attending at the many activities of the day. Two crucial events – the vision of human soul’s sublime horror in Issy’s room and the physical-spiritual fusion with ALP – have “worked out to an inch of [HCE’s] core” (590.27), bringing him almost in touch with his essence and leaving him with a longing for “More!” (590.27). But now it is time for HCE to take off the “ringasend” (585.9, the condom) and come down the “ring” (590.27) of their love match, to begin the everyday battle with real life, while the queen of his heart “blesses her bliss” (590.28) and smilingly listens to “her funnyman’s . . . rumbling” (590.28), i.e., his flatulence, reminiscent of Bloom’s musical comment at the end of “Sirens.” The last line: “Tiers. Tiers. Tiers. Rounds.” (590.30) represents a meta-reference to FW itself. On a literal level, it means “tiers of seats and rounds of applause” for this “dumbshow” watched by the world’s audience; while on a structural level it symbolizes the third recorso ending a book (after chapters I.8 and II.4) and the one that is still to come (ch. IV.1) – the finale of the whole “phloem,” the rounding of the square. In conclusion, I would like to remark the fact that, after having been observed for 35 pages, HACLEP can finally observe Joyce himself, as implied by the line: “Two me see” (590.24, i.e. two people see me) containing the Italian soundsense for “thou,” so that the global meaning is “thou see me.” And indeed, after repeatedly experiencing this chapter, I think I can see him now as he wanted to be seen.

  1. Joyce’s View – Rejoyce in Peace

According to James Atherton, the theological conception at the base of FW is one where the original sin was committed not by Man, but in fact by God Himself, as the only entity possessing the power and freedom to do so. He also remarks that this theory was by no means original, having always been upheld through the centuries by unorthodox intellectuals among the circles of theological speculation. Following this line of thinking, God created the Cosmos in His likeness: of astounding beauty but also hopelessly flawed, pervaded as it is by evil. Indeed, in order to shape such an imperfect world, evil must have been part of His essence, that He bequeathed Man wholly: noble, generous and self-sacrificing, in potentia – but also driven by ravenous self-interest toward falsehood, injustice and violence. Starting from the premise of a fallible God, Joyce outlined every human type in FW as consequently fallible and exposed to sin and failure, but perpetually capable of redemption, like the mythical Phoenix bird: “ Phall if you but will, rise you must” (4.15ff); “Humbly to fall and cheaply to rise, exposition of failures” (589.17, containing HCE’s acronym). This dynamics of sinful fall and virtuous rise, death, and resuscitation, repeats “ad infinitum, whirled without end to end” (582.19ff), because it is congenital to Man, inherited directly from God – whose creatures all bear the “browbrand” (582.31), the stigma of sin passed on to them by the “Cainmaker” (583.28). Consequently, of each and every living thing it can indeed be predicated: “All that is still life with death inyeborn” (585.17). As discussed in precedence, human imperfection is symbolized in FW through physiological functions. But there is yet another consequence of God’s original sin in Man, i.e. Oedipal love. In point of fact, it is when peeking inside Issy’s room that HCE found himself “on the verge of selfabyss” (40.23). Till then, he had always avoided becoming conscious of this sinful inheritance by means of a transfer process, as we realize considering that the two maids stand for his wife and daughter – the women of his family for whom he feels deep attraction; while the three soldiers symbolize the parts of his psyche – Id, Ego and Super-ego: the first and more powerful spurring him on, the second observing and the third censuring him. Therefore, in FW the prototypical man is HCE, who not only shares God’s nature, but is one and the same with Him, as shown by the countless passages where HCE is characterized using attributes proper to the divine principle. This proceeding is truly ubiquitous in the book, mirrored by the majority of HCE’s pseudonyms, as shown by the following three instances: in “a jolly fine daysent form of one word” (578.14), this “one word” is the hundred-letter word symbolizing God’s voice, the Vichian thunder; HCE is a “host,” a term summing up his triple nature: divine (as a transubstantiated particle), human (as innkeeper) and sordid (from the Latin “hostis”: enemy); “that Boggey Godde, be airwaked” (560.14ff), where HCE is again depicted as sordid (“bog”), divine (“God”) and human (“Earwicker” is HCE’s nickname). Although Joyce’s conception of God reaches its most mature formulation in FW , it is already present in Ulysses , where Stephen defines the divine as “a shout in the street” (“Nestor”) and where God is equaled to his literal specular, the polymorphous dog of “Proteus” and “Circe” – which indicates that divine is in fact everything in between. To my mind, Joyce first developed this theological view and only in a second time did he search for philosophical formulations to support and complement it, as he did adopting Vico’s principle of cyclical time and Bruno’s doctrine of the identity of contraries. As a matter of fact, Vico provided him an additional theory to rationalize the eternal circle of Man’s fall and rise; while Bruno allowed him to further validate the stance that Man is in dissonance with himself, a host to opposing and complementary principles. This opposition is best embodied by the twins, in perennial conflict but fundamentally “sameas” (483.4). Their superficial clash of personalities can be transcended only in conjunction with the figure of HCE – as Hegelian thesis and antithesis are unified in the synthesis – so that, together, father and sons form the male human trinity of FW . Jerry and Kevin are often compared to Isaac’s twin sons, Esau and Jacob, like in the passage: “Jerry Jehu . . . you cannot see whose heel he sheepfolds in his wrought hand” (563.7-9), where reference is made to the biblical account of their birth, according to which Jacob was born holding his elder twin’s heel – an omen confirmed later in life, when he deceitfully wrung Esau’s primogeniture. In the same way, Jerry yields to Kevin because he is not interested in and does not want to be bound by material things. Indeed, their characters are apparently unalike: “Major bed, minor bickhive” (561.7), i.e., Jerry is an introverted artist, wasting his time in otium literarium , while Kevin is extroverted and productive like a bee. Nonetheless, as they embody complementary aspects of human nature, they are intrinsically one and the same, participating in the eternal game of love and sharing the universal destiny of war and religion, le rouge et le noir . Another way to understand their sameness is to examine the origin of the name “Shem” (Jerry’s alias), connected to that of “Samuel.” The latter stems from the Hebrew “Shemu’El” meaning “his name is God” – where “shem” is “name” and “El” abbreviates “Elohim” (“God”). Although “Samuel” contains one of the twins, it is very often used in wordplay with “same” to indicate not only both sons, but also: human race, our imperfect God and the never-ending story of Man’s fall and rise (“There extand by now one thousand and one stories, all told, of the same,” 5.28ff). Why should it be so? Because this wordplay originates from Sanskrit, where “sa” is the prefix for likeness, identity and sameness, hence “sama” (“equal”), “samaja” (“society”), “samajatandra” (“democratic”) and “samasa” (“compound word”), the latter being the hundred-letter word representing HCE, our triple-natured God: sordid (“Sordid Sam,” 49.21), human (“the labyrinth of their samilikes and the alteregoases of their pseudoselves,” 576.32ff) and divine (“ Sam knows miles bettern me how to work the miracle,” 467.18ff). In sum: “The same. Three persons” (478.29). Regarding the importance of Sanskrit in FW , here I can only hint at the fact that it exerted a great fascination on the author. It appealed to Joyce the linguist because it stems directly from Proto-Indo-European, the common ancestor of all existing languages. Unlike Greek and Latin, though, with which it is genetically related, Sanskrit lives on as India’s religious language. In this role, it also appealed to Joyce the writer, who intended FW as a sacred book to lead people toward peace via a deeper understanding of human nature. The “samuraised twimbs” (354.24, i.e., battling but born and raised as one) are not alone in being double, because their sister Issy also forms a couple with her mirror reflection, whom she nicknames “Sosy because she’s sosiety for [her]” (459.10, containing the Italian “sosia”: perfect replica). This is how Issy talks about her “linkingclass girl: she’s a fright . . . in her sleeptalking when I paint the measles on her and mudstuskers to make her a man. We. We.” (459.4-6, punctuation mine), i.e., her double represents her masculine part, emerging in moments of diminished consciousness, like in sleep, play and love. The fact that Issy’s double embodies her manly side should not come as a surprise, since the twins also reproduce this polarity: if Shaun (Kevin’s alias) is defined as “eunique!” (562.33, i.e., a unique eunuch), it is because his name stems from the Hebrew “Shawn,” a feminine person’s name meaning “God is gracious.” Issy and the Maggies interconnect by way of the name “Margaret,” which for them plays the role “Samuel” plays for Shem and Shaun. Indeed, in the same way in which the “samilikes” (i.e., all men) are extensions of the twins on a world scale, the Maggies (i.e., all women) are extensions of Issy – starting from her mirror reflection, who bears in turn many names, all variations on “Margaret.” In order to understand why, we must look at the etymology of this name, coming from the Greek “margarites” (“pearl, jewel”). This meaning was passed on to Latin (like in the adage: nolite mittere margaritas ante porcos ), until in the late Middle Ages, with romance languages, “margarita” came to indicate a “daisy,” that in Italian is still “margherita.” Another reason why “Margaret” lent itself to indicate Issy’s twin as well as the Maggies, is because it is extremely pliable to linguistic manipulation, since it can be abbreviated, varied, and translated in a number of ways, also in combination with “Mary,” so that it is easy to find an original variant for each of the twenty-eight girls – among whom the most prominent is the Bostonian cousin Maggy, the addressee of ALP’s letter (the “letterpaper originating by transhipt from Boston,” 111.9). Having explained the origin and meaning of their name, the Maggies acquire a more definite characterization as simple, resistant flowers like those surviving war and destruction in Edgar Quinet’s quote (281.4-13) on historical development, all the more significant since it is the only passage in FW written in natural language. The sense of the citation is that, although single flowers are transient, yet as Nature’s expressions they last longer than Man and his artifacts, so that after cities have been destroyed and civilizations annihilated, flowers continue to grow and flourish. Joyce’s comment to Quinet is: “Margaritomancy! Hyacinthinous pervinciveness! Flowers.” (281.13), that I interpret as indicating not only the power of divination traditionally attached to daisies, but also the wish for a just and peaceful society, symbolized by the “pervasively winning” “Hyacinthinous.” This flower is an androgynous creature, since the Italian “giacinto” is one of the very few blossoms with a masculine name, while its English version includes the Greek root hy-, suggesting both the feminine principle (“hysteros”) and the figure of speech hysteron-proteron (literally “the last comes first”), whose evangelical reverberations also sound like a wish for a more equitable future. The “flowers” are of course the Maggies, interconnecting with peace here as they do in Ulysses , especially in the figure of Bloom, “the new womanly man” (“Circe”) who dreams of a perfect “Flowerville” (“Ithaca”) and who, with unusual daring, professes his credo among blind and violent nationalists: “Force, hatred, history, all that. That’s not life for men and women, insult and hatred. And everybody knows that it’s the very opposite of that that is really life. – What? says Alf. – Love, says Bloom. I mean the opposite of hatred.” In FW , this pacification is possible only through ALP and the principles she represents. She comes “from the proletarian class” (575.5) and talks “in her pigeony linguish” (584.3, i.e., pidgin English). Therefore, more than HCE, she represents that impelling urge to achieve social justice which permeates FW . This is because their instincts are different: “peg of his claim and pride of her heart” (577.16). Having to provide for his family, HCE is more self-centered and egotistical by nature, although he makes his business “sweetheartedly” (579.6), with an eye to the common good and to those less fortunate than himself: “making party capital out of landed self-interest, light on a slavey but weighty on the bourse” (589.8ff), according to that rule of his home saying: “share the wealth and spoil the weal” (579.16ff). On the other hand, ALP is the prototypical mother, taking pride in loving her family and dispensing that amor matris (subjective objective genitive) that Stephen in Ulysses extols as the only real form of love. Indeed ALP, being maternally generous, symbolizes Latin pietas , Buddhist compassion, Wakean pity – recurring virtually in every description of her, like in the beautiful: “Allaliefest, she who pities very pebbles” (562.7), where the pebbles of the river are also the peoples of the world. As previously remarked, HCE’s triple wish (562.8-11) is addressed to the feminine trinity composed by the women of his house: ALP, Issy and Issy’s double: that they may live freely, follow their heart and find protection in themselves – which evidently expresses a yearning for gender justice, another pivotal principle embodied by ALP. It is noteworthy that in FW , sexual liberation is preliminary to women’s freedom, and this in turn is connected in causal relation with peace, like at 568.5, “Have peacience, pray you! Place to dames!” Indeed, peace cannot be maintained with the variables of political calculation (“Scant hopes . . . to escape life’s high carnage of semperidentity by subsisting peasemeal upon variables,” 582.14-16), completely inconsistent if applied to the wisdom of human flesh, whose basic needs must in all case take priority over the rapacious interests of “the upper ten,” trying to exploit “the lower five” (589.18ff). Thus, we must “be ware of duty frees” (576.35), i.e., beware of those who proclaim to be perfect (“duty” euphemistically indicating physiological functions, symbol of sin in FW ). Unlike them, we should recognize human needs and appease them: “But pray, make! Do your easiness!” (571.19), as we should be aware of our defective nature and show compassion on it (“pity shown,” 585.12), which is the only way to attain peace, i.e., heaven on Earth: “O peace, this is heaven!” (571.20). Joyce has a clear image of how this earthly heaven should look like, namely, like his FW , whose features and structure mirror the Heavenly Jerusalem – a biblical symbol of the perfection toward which God wants to lead human history. The City of God is portrayed in the Apocalypse as a perfect cube, its height equaling its length and breadth, surrounded by four walls set with gems, whose twelve foundations are precious stones and whose twelve gates are made of pearl. The City has no temple, for God dwells with the righteous that are admitted into it, whose names are written in the book of life. From God’s throne in the middle of the City issues the river of living water that fertilizes the desert and nourishes the tree of life growing along its banks, whose twelve branches bear twelve different kinds of fruit and whose leaves are “for the healing of the nation” [22.2]. Given this description, the parallels with FW are easily traced. The City is represented by the whole book as well as by its hero HCE, “Gothgorod father” (565.21), where the Russian “gorod” means “city” and “goth” unites “God” and “moth”, that is, an earwig, hence Earwicker. The four books of FW correspond to the four walls; the Maggies are the pearly gates; ALP is the living river (“a clear springwell,” 571.2); Shaun the “sinningstone” (564.30) stands for the foundations; while the tree of life is both Shem “talkingtree” (564.30) and FW itself, “the letter” he “penned” (93.24ff). The tree of FW has branches that are bookish ramifications (“the bookstaff branching,” 571.5) casting mysterious spells that can be spelled with the aid of love (571.5-7). The pages of FW represent the healing leaves of the biblical tree, as we see in the last one of them: “My leaves have drifted from me. All. But one clings still. I’ll bear it on me. To remind me of. Lff!” (628.6ff). But, unlike the biblical book of life, FW excludes no-one from the earthly heaven, since it virtually contains every existing person’s name. Indeed, from FW “are yielded out juices for jointoils and pappasses for paynims” (564.20ff), i.e., all can find spiritual nourishment in it, regardless of their creed – Jews as well as gentiles. This fundamental message of peace is further emphasized by the association of ideas generated superimposing the preceding image with the following one: “Our cubehouse still rocks as earwitness to the thunder of his arafatas but we hear also through successive ages that shebby choruysh of unkalified muzzlenimissilehims that would blackguardise the whitestone ever hurtleturtled out of heaven” (5.14-18). Here, reference is made to the Black Stone, a meteorite fragment kept in the Ka’ba, Mecca’s sacred shrine dedicated to Allah. The stone is believed to have been sent down from heaven to take all human sins upon itself, thus turning from white to black. According to this tradition, the stone will return white only when all peoples are purified from evil and converted to Islam. Paraphrasing the quote, we understand: FW (“Our cubehouse”) acts as a Black Stone, bearing witness to the Word of God (“earwitness to the thunder”). Nevertheless we hear, cyclically through the eras (“we hear also through successive ages”), that despicable choir (“shebby choruysh”) of incompetent (“unkalified”) and violent religious fanatics (a “missile” is inserted into “muzzle- -hims,” that is soundsense for “Muslims”) who would vilify and sully (“blackguardise”) that white stone rolled down (“hurtleturtled”) from heaven. Here it is essential to notice the identification of FW with the Black Stone: since FW also represents the Christian Heavenly Jerusalem, it follows that the two religions are one and the same like the twins, at least in potentia . Hence the condemnation of all religious fanatism, which makes it impossible for the peoples to understand each other, fomenting only war and destruction. This profound message of peace is, I think, of vital importance in moments like the one we are living now, where culture conflict and military potential combined threaten not only to generate an even more inequitable society, but to destroy human civilization in toto .

As a last personal remark on this unprecedented, possibly inimitable masterpiece of world literature, I would like to encourage all “curious dreamers” (577.31) and readers to discover the universal message of the last Joycean text, “that letter self penned to one’s other, that neverperfect everplanned” (489.33ff) sounding painfully prophetic to our modern sensitivity. Obviously, such complex, layered and farsighted works of genius as this is cannot hope to be understood and appreciated by Nobel committees, also because their comprehension may require more than a human life. But unlike those yearly meteoras, they will remain as cornerstones in our culture – part of our collective consciousness, as they intended to be from the beginning.

MY ACADEMIC RESUMÉ

(Criminal Complaint, Section 3.)

The racist sex offenders, “Stanford buddies,” denounced in my Criminal Complaint had the same grooming techniques and modus operandi. An important element of this playbook was defamation of character in order to eliminate their victims and the witnesses of their racist, violent crimes. Hence, after being raped, many Asian women were just “sent back” like unwanted packets to their country of origin, e.g. China, with just a false pretext and no questions asked.

As a non-binary person of African Moroccan origin and a cultural European, my case was very different, since people do cherish their civil rights in Europe. I have an outstanding record of academic successes in some of the best lyceums and universities in the world. The sex offenders named above have tried to conceal and obfuscate this objective fact, or even turn it upside down by projecting their own failures on me, e.g. public records show that Saussy’s daughter, Juliana (b. 9/27/1991) has learning disabilities and was diagnosed with autism and schizophrenia, cf. New Haven Superior Court, Docket # FA-07-4027957S.

In other words, these white-trash criminals tried to defame my character in order to conceal their violent and repulsive crimes, avoid punishment and keep doing more damage. Hence, in the interests of telling the truth and in order to warn other innocent students and their families, this Section 3 summarizes my academic record.

Keep in mind that if this happened to me as a top student and scholar, this can happen to anyone.

I am a proud survivor of racism and violent crime. I am a non-binary person of African Moroccan origin, a European citizen as well as a naturalized American. My groundbreaking book on Hamlet and the Pact with the Devil is copyrighted at the U.S. Library of Congress, and that copyright forever belongs to me and my family.

I attended prestigious schools and was the valedictorian when I graduated from one of the most ancient lyceums in Europe, established in the 16th Century as a Court Academy. In a class of over 1500, I was the only one to present a thesis on Dante’s political thought on the separation of powers between State and Church – an essential concept that many countries have never been able to learn in theory and actualize in practice, cf. Section 12.

That was the culmination of many years of Dante studies in one of the most élite lyceums in the Western world, with an intense humanities curriculum. Indeed, I had more lectures on Dante, the Divine Comedy and Sonnets than so-called Dante “scholars” such as Giuseppe Mazzotta (b. 1942), who’s in fact only a plagiarist and scammer.

EXHIBIT 9

Giuseppe Mazzotta from the town of Curinga, in the mob-ridden region of Calabria.

Mazzotta is a plagiarist who, for all his life, has been stealing from actual scholars of Dante in Italy, which is the only place where Dante is actually taught and studied, and the field of “Dante Studies” actually means anything. Dante is not studied in the U.S. or Canada (!), of all possible places, where Mazzotta immigrated together with his dad (a bricklayer) and mom (a homemaker) back in the 1950s when he was 12-13, and where he attended with much effort an English-speaking high-school and college that did not include Dante in their curriculum.

And this is perfectly understandable, not just because Dante is not their national poet; but also, and more importantly, because nobody in these countries gives a damn about a white, old man from the Middle Ages writing in an obscure, bygone Italian dialect about matters of Catholic theology such as “sin” and “eternal punishment.”

In the same way, Dante is not studied at Cornell, where Mazzotta spent the 1960s destroying himself with alcohol addiction, addiction to both legal and illegal drugs, as well as a dirty, sexually promiscuous lifestyle under the guise of “grad school,” cf. pictures here and in Section 6.

Mazzotta has abused his unmerited post at Yale for illicit gain and in order to molest and rape African Americans, women of color and LGBTQI+ people. These crimes could only happen with the help and support of Richard and Jane Levin, who aided and abetted for this repeat sex offender, ignorant plagiarist, academic scammer and financial fraudster.

EXHIBIT 10

Giuseppe Mazzotta – he finds it difficult to remember all his lies.

As I said, my lyceum was founded in 1587 as a Court Academy, and it’s one of the most ancient and most élite lyceums in the world. The academic schedule was 6 hours/day, 6 days/week, for the mandatory 5 years:

Italian Literature 4 hours/week, including 2 hours/week only for Dante’s Sonnets and Divine Comedy;

English Lang. and Literature 4 hours/week; French Lang. and Literature 4 hours/week;

German Lang. and Literature 4 hours/week; Latin Lang. and Literature 2 hours/week;

History 3 hours/week; Philosophy 3 hours/week; History of Art 2 hours/week.

And that was just the core. Plus 12 more hours of mathematics, geometry, physics, geography, chemistry and biology, which also included nutrition science. For all my life, and especially during the 2020 pandemic, I profited immensely from this strong scientific foundation to nutrition. For instance, my BMI (Body Mass Index) has been constantly low, between 19.1 and 19.5; I look picture-perfect, and my perfect blood work confirms that health within translates into beauty without. Moreover, my schedule also included personal training with rhythmic gymnastics and ballet, cf. Section 11 on defamation of character.

This intense curriculum was devised with a vision of the “Renaissance wo/man” as the well-rounded individual who knows many different subjects and is able to perform many different intellectual tasks. Candidates had to realize this vision in practice, and I just happened to be consistently the best in all my classes.

With this very solid and rare cultural foundation, I was able to put in the right context all the racist violence against citizens of other countries, all the ignorant bigotry and the self-righteous arrogance I’ve seen at Yale, cf. Sections 9-12, which allowed me to be a proud survivor of rape and sex trafficking.

EXHIBIT 11

This is the official degree issued by the Italian Ministry of Education after completing my 5-year lyceum, the “Liceo Ludovico Antonio Muratori,” est. in the 16th Century as a Court Academy, and one of the most ancient and most élite in the Western world. From this prestigious and competitive institute, I graduated w/the highest score, 60/60 (It. ‘sessanta/sessantesimi’).

After the rape and sex-trafficking, Giuseppe Mazzotta tried to deny my academic credentials in order to defame me, put the lie on me, and avoid taking responsibility for his crimes.

For instance, he falsely claimed I went to a high-school for retarded individuals like Carol Chiodo, who attended a Catholic institution for people with learning disabilities and physical and mental illnesses called “Liceo Cadorna,” cf. Catholic website:  http://www.adorazione.it/

Mazzotta illegally admitted Ms. Chiodo (b. 1/17/1966) to a 6-year, fully-funded program at Yale, solely because she was married to one of his “friends” from Calabria, Piero Chiodo, a business exec who certainly didn’t need any extra money from Yale to beef up his bank account.

EXHIBIT 12

Ms. Chiodo (b. 1966) attended a Catholic high-school for people w/ physical and mental handicaps.

Giuseppe Mazzotta broke the law, and committed a multi-million dollar academic and financial fraud, despite the fact that: 1) Ms. Chiodo did not even have a bachelor’s degree; 2) she was 41 years of age, and had been out of school for over 20 years (!), with no academic recommendations and no previous record in academia; 3) she only attended a religious high-school for challenged individuals with learning disabilities and physical and mental illnesses, cf. Section 12. For such scandalous corruption, the dep’t of Italian at Yale is nicknamed “The Goodfellas.”

Mazzotta also lied about the dates of my academic degrees and about my own age, misrepresenting me as old, while at the same time hiring his 41-year-old friend Carol Chiodo without any qualification.

But facts are proven by the evidence, not by defamation, malicious slander and lies. As shown in Exhibit 8, which is a high-definition picture in JPG, the “school year” (It. ‘anno scolastico’) was 1994-1995, since Italians are regularly 19 when they finish K-13.

It’s important to note that pre-college education starts one year later, at age 6, and lasts one year longer in Italy compared to the U.S., so it is more properly indicated as K-13 instead of K-12. For this reason, Italian candidates will be 2 years older than people from the U.K. or the U.S.; but with this academic background, they will also possess more culture and sophistication.

Other dates on the certificate indicate bureaucratic facts, for instance:

1990 was the year of the Ministerial Decree (It. ‘D.M., decreto ministeriale’) specifying the organization of this type of lyceum; 1984 was when the principal, Dr. Teresa Muscolo, got her own license as principal;

and 1996 was the year in which I petitioned to have this official certificate issued to me, as I was applying for a scholarship based on my 60/60 academic performance.

Mazzotta lied about all these facts, turning reality upside down and misrepresenting me as one of his old and mentally challenged friends, e.g. Carol Chiodo, in the Italian dep’t. And for this, he took advantage of the widespread ignorance and lack of information there is in the U.S., with all due exceptions, about different countries and cultures.

While I was studying en route for this prestigious academic degree at my ancient lyceum, I also independently earned the Diplôme d’Études de Langue Française (DELF) from the French Ministry of Education; as well as the Proficiency in English, with top Grade A, from the University of Cambridge.

As an independent scholar, I earned the Proficiency in English, Grade A,

from the University of Cambridge, U.K., when I was just 17, in December 1993.

I didn’t have any “acquaintances” or “political friendships” at Cambridge – my achievement was the result of natural talent combined with continued academic work, capacity for setting and reaching goals and, even from a young age, being able to see the complete picture and to delay gratification until I actualize it.

My alma mater is the original Alma Mater Studiorum, ‘The Great Mother of Studies,’ the University of Bologna, established in 1088, when the U.S. was just a puddle of mud, cf. cultural appropriation in Section 12.

My original dissertation for the Masters of Art at the University of Bologna is an unprecedented literary translation and critical analysis of Joyce’s Finnegans Wake III.4, which was copied by a plagiarist in order to obtain an unmerited promotion and steal money, see Section 6, where I discuss how Giuseppe Mazzotta is involved in this academic and financial scam.

EXHIBIT 15

Laurea Magistrale, M.A., with the highest score, 110/110 Cum Laude, and many academic prizes. 

I graduated at the top of my class w/the highest score, 110/110 Cum Laude, and many prestigious academic prizes, in Translation Studies and Interpretation. I defended my dissertation in December 2004, and the official degree was issued in February 2005. It is very expensive, since it’s one of the most ornate and elaborate parchments in the academic world.

The core curriculum at the Alma Mater was in Linguistics, i.e. the hard science at the basis of language study and foreign language acquisition. I’m a polyglot, i.e. multilingual individual, in English, Italian, French, German and Spanish. Moreover, I have professional mastery of ancient Latin, and I can easily translate between any of these languages in either direction.

Many scammers and plagiarists from the Italian dep’t at Yale – e.g. Carol Chiodo, Anna Iacovella, Mattia Acetoso, Michael Farina, Andrea Moudarres, etc. – assume they can “translate” and “teach” foreign language acquisition without this strong foundation in Translation Studies and Linguistics.

Over the years, these scammers have stolen millions of dollars from unsuspecting students and their families.

And this happened not only in the States, but also in Italy, with the “study abroad” scam in Siena, where fake “instructors” such as Carol Chiodo got paid $20,000/semester for more than 6 years.

That’s a financial fraud, whose helpless victims are the students, especially minority and diversity students, and their paying families. When talking about the implementation of social justice in academia, there should be some understanding and outrage about that egregious scam.

EXHIBIT 16

Anna Iacovella has been in charge of the Italian language program at Yale for over a decade,

despite the fact that she attended a Catholic high-school for the handicapped and mentally challenged.

Anna Iacovella attended a Catholic school called Sant’ Orsola Benincasa, Naples: https://www.unisob.na.it/

But Catholic schools have no status whatsoever in Italy: they are extremely corrupt and reserved for individuals w/ physical and mental illnesses, mental retardation, special needs, lower IQ, etc.

Not exactly the most qualifying background for the Ivy League.

Nevertheless, Giuseppe Mazzotta picked Ms. Iacovella for a full-time lectureship to teach Italian, renewable for years, and without any requirement for scholarship.

For many scholars, that would be a dream job, but NO search was ever conducted to fill that well-paid and comfortable post. It seemed as if Mazzotta knew exactly the right person for it, who just so happened to have the least qualifications. What was the nature of the quid-pro-quo between Mazzotta and Iacovella, exactly?

Was it just the usual bribery, or were some sexual favors also involved?

EXHIBIT 17

Luigi Schenoni’s recommendation letter.

In addition to earning the highest score for my M.A. at the University of Bologna (110/110 Cum Laude), I was also awarded a rare academic prize called “Dignity of the Print” (It., ‘Dignità di Stampa’) to indicate that my original academic work is worthy to be printed. My work focuses on Finnegans Wake, Joyce’s linguistically puzzling and metaphorical novel, and it includes an original literary translation of Ch. III.4, which is my exclusive copyright.

The official academic degree conferred by the University of Bologna attests that I am a Doctor of Translation Studies, cf. Exhibit 15. In general, European universities do not require any external recommendation letter for the conferral of an academic degree – only for exceptional prizes like the one described above.

I am relieved that neither John Bishop nor Jay Fliegelman could ruin my joy, for which I have invested countless hours of study over many years since I was a child and a teenager, as well as a considerable amount of money.

This is the translated letter by the late Dr. Luigi Schenoni, Einaudi’s translator for James Joyce:

“I have read with great interest Margherita Maleti’s dissertation on Finnegans Wake, III.4. This is an intelligent, creative and in-depth work, which deserves to be published. Indeed, this translation is an original contribution to the comprehension and transposition of a work that is still little known and underappreciated. Since I have been working for years at the translation of this book – and am deeply aware of its difficulties – I have great admiration and appreciation for Margherita Maleti’s exceptional capacity to translate an entire chapter into Italian and to comment on it critically, with in-depth analyses and recreations that are often the work of genius and always interesting. Hence, I express my completely favorable opinion to give this dissertation the Dignity of the Print.”

During my study at the University of Bologna, I won an international competition based on academic merit to study at U.C. Berkeley on a full fellowship in the Dep’t of Linguistics, when it was still top rated in the U.S.

For both semesters, fall 2002 and spring 2003, my high GPA qualified me to be on the Dean’s Honors List.

EXHIBIT 18

U.C. Berkeley, Official Transcripts, fall 2002 – spring 2003.

As shown here, my GPA was equal or above 3.93 in a full load of letter-graded courses for both the fall semester 2002 and the spring semester 2003, which placed me in the top 4% of students in the College of Letters and Science, see also Dean Kwong-loi Shun’s letter below.

In the fall semester 2002, my classes were: Linguistics, Metaphor w/George Lakoff (A); Advanced French (A); Intro to Computers (A-); Advanced German (A).

In the spring semester 2003, my classes were: English Seminar on James Joyce w/John Bishop (A); Sociolinguistics w/Robin Lakoff (A-); Advanced French (A); Advanced German (A).

EXHIBIT 19

Dean Kwong-loi Shun’s letter on March 5, 2003.

According to Dean Kwong-loi Shun, “This is a remarkable accomplishment. In order to perform so exceptionally, you must have put many long hours of hard work and study.

I trust that you are as gratified with the results as I am. It gives me great pleasure to place your name on the Letters and Science Dean’s Honors List as a recognition of your achievement. I hope that you continue to find Berkeley an intellectually stimulating environment.

It is the interaction at all levels of students like you with our faculty and staff that helps make Berkeley the exciting place we all feel it is. You will find that your excellent record of accomplishment can open new doors to you. I hope your will investigate the many scholarship and research opportunities listed on the Dean’s Honor List web page, etc.”

Now, I’m sure it was not Dean Kwong-loi Shu’s intention, but his words sound ominous for a victim of rape and sex trafficking. Dean Shu was probably not aware of the fact that I had performed at the highest academic levels despite the fact that I had been sexually molested by one of the so-called professors in the English dep’t, acting with the full complicity of his senior colleagues, e.g. Jeffrey Knapp, cf. Section 2.

When Dean Shu writes that it is “the interaction at all levels of students like [me] with our faculty and staff” that makes Berkeley so special, he wasn’t aware of the fact that white-trash sex offenders like John Bishop – and their accomplices, friends and supporters, like Jeffrey Knapp – would actually give a perverted spin to his words.

And when he mentions the power of my objective academic achievements to “open new doors” – as it should always be, in a just society – he didn’t know I was going to be targeted, as a non-binary person of African descent, precisely in one of the private universities on the East Coast that portray themselves as “liberal,” but are in fact full of racist sex offenders such as Saussy and Mazzotta.

EXHIBIT 21

George Lakoff’s recommendation letter for the graduate program at Yale.

The U.C. Berkeley course I took with George Lakoff in the dep’t of Linguistics was on Metaphor, his main academic interest, and my final grade was A+, which was the highest grade.

This is Lakoff’s recommendation letter for Yale:

“It is a real pleasure to recommend Margherita Maleti for admission to your Ph.D. program. Ms. Maleti was a student in my course on Metaphor (Linguistics 106) in the fall of 2002. She was one of the two best students in the course, which is saying something since the students in that course were excellent overall. [She] is no ordinary student. She doesn’t merely learn the subject matter – she interrogates it, shines bright light in its eyes, and makes it confess every hint of inadequacy.

Her term paper on Dante was brilliant, insightful, masterful. But what I remember most was her questions in class. Never pedestrian. Always coming at a topic from a new angle, almost always catching me off my feet, forcing me to confront issues I hadn’t thought about before.

What I especially appreciate about [her] is her intellectual persistence. When she asks a question, she expects a full, serious, thoughtful answer every time, and doesn’t let up until she gets one. Not in an offensive way. Quite the opposite, with a seriousness of purpose, a genuine questioning that one can’t help but respect. I hope you admit Ms. Maleti to your program. She will make a lively intellectual addition to your department, and I think she is destined to become an outstanding scholar.”

First of all, it’s important to notice Lakoff’s reference to my Dante essay: “brilliant, insightful, masterful.”

Indeed, I scanned the entire Divine Comedy for metaphors – something that can only be accomplished with previous knowledge of that massive literary work, which had been part of my cultural background for years.

And that shall put an end to academic and financial scams like Mazzotta and ‘The Goodfellas.’

But what Lakoff fails to mention, here, is the fact that the other student he compares me with was a white male, who was born and raised in the United States and very familiar with U.S. colleges/universities. By comparison, and to be fair, that was the first time for me in a U.S. college/university as a non-binary person of African descent.

And that was not an English class, but a Linguistics class that took complete mastery of American English and American culture for granted. But as shown in Lakoff’s letter, my questions ‘almost caught him off his feet.’

And people who ask intelligent questions are often un-welcome, especially if they’re not white.

One of the main questions about Lakoff’s class had to do with his choice of a teaching assistant: a woman in her fifties who used to claim in public to be Lakoff’s “intimate friend.” How’s that professional or even legal, exactly? And does this have anything to do with the fact that his wife, Robin, later divorced him?

There were many other questions having to do w/ relaxed ethical standards. For instance, Lakoff’s background was in linguistics and he knew nothing about the medical sciences. In spite of that, he would make many undemonstrated claims about the neural sciences, with no academic qualifications to back that up.

Furthermore, Lakoff ignored U.S. laws on conflict of interests and lobbied to have his wife, Robin, hired in the very same dep’t of Linguistics at Berkeley, doing exactly the same things, so that salary and benefits were double but authorship was ambiguous at best. And the main victims, of course, were other women who didn’t have a “spouse” or “relative” as an insider. This cannot, and does not, happen in European universities.

That’s just another academic and financial fraud made in the U.S.

These are all intellectually probing questions that reveal a lot about American so-called “academia” and what is officially presented as a “country of laws,” even though the evidence doesn’t support that conclusion. And people who ask probing questions that go at the heart of the problem, and make people feel very uncomfortable about their hypocrisy, are too often un-welcome, especially if they’re Africans and non-binary.

Another research area for Lakoff was “empathy” – of all possible topics – which he presented as a moving force in politics as well. Here’s an interesting quote from one of his interviews online:

“Empathy is why we have the values of freedom, fairness, and equality – for everyone, not just for certain individuals. If we put ourselves in the shoes of others, we will want them to be free and treated fairly. Empathy with all leads to equality: nobody should be treated worse than anyone else.” “Progressive ideals are based on empathy” cf. Exhibit 21.

Yale and Berkeley present themselves as progressive, or rather, with a façade of progressivism. But the truth is that “empathy,” “fairness” and “justice” is certainly NOT how I was treated by the racist sex offenders denounced in this Criminal Complaint. That was in fact, violence, discrimination and blatant injustice.

And that’s NOT how I was treated by many individuals – including many women and fake feminists – who helped the sex offenders break the laws, aiding and abetting for them either hysterically and vociferously, as Jane Levin and Kathryn Lofton; or through the code of silence, as the many would-be academicians who just watched and let it happen, in typical mafia-style, always hoping to get some money and academic favors out of the situation. But these crimes are not going to go unpunished.

George Lakoff’s letter was the center of an expensive academic and financial fraud, discussed in detail in Section 11.

EXHIBIT 22

Empathy with whom, George?

EXHIBIT 23

M.A. in Comparative Literature, Yale

Speaking of “empathy,” “fairness,” and “justice,” it is very important to warn innocent students and their families about the academic and financial fraud of “comparative literature.” According to the “Stanford buddies” denounced in my Criminal Complaint, comparative literature would be the only “non-field” in academia “without a subject matter or methodology.” In fact, that would open the door to all sort of plagiarism, fraud and corruption.

If that were the case, there would be NO objective standard to read and assess anything in this non-field, e.g. the macro-history of world events or the personal history of each writer, which is going to influence their individual perspective on life. If that were the case, the only subjective element directing this non-field would be the racist ideology and pathological cult of personality of the white-trash “professors” and their mistresses, such as Olga Solovieva, Section 4.

As it is, comparative literature at Yale is an academic and financial scam, and the racist individuals running that circus are stupid and ignorant plagiarists and parasites, who aspire to be little tyrants like Hitler, Stalin and Mao. That’s the undoing of comparative literature altogether, and just another scam made in the U.S.

Hamlet and the Pact with the Devil

My academic life changed early on, when I understood that Hamlet’s “ghost” is not a “soul from Purgatory” but in fact a demon, and I assumed everyone knew as well. As I later found out during my lyceum, that wasn’t the case at all. But if someone did understand the truth in the past, they certainly did not write a critical analysis about it – perhaps because they didn’t want to experience the same violence and discrimination I had to experience in a bigoted, racist and white-trash environment like Yale.

Indeed, nobody has ever written this original critical analysis of Hamlet except myself, and I copyrighted it at the Library of Congress in 2013-4, more than four centuries after the play was written (1599-1601), and for the very first time in the history of literary criticism. In this way I also showed that Shakespeare and his predecessor on the English stage, Christopher Marlowe, focused on the same topic – i.e. how corrupt individuals chose evil over good in order to get illicit gains – for both of their masterpieces, Hamlet and Dr Faustus (1592) respectively.

I will forever own that valuable copyright – it belongs to me until I die, and I intend to use it for my family.

FYI, there are NO African scholars of Shakespeare. And on top of that, there are NO scholars of Shakespeare whose first language is not English. That’s a big academic and financial scam, especially considering that Shakespeare is marketed as “universal literature” in an attempt to get money and visibility from the printed press, the Internet, movies, television, radio and tons of merch.

The fact that there are no African scholars of Shakespeare does not come as a surprise, given the amount of racism and violent abuse that ethnically diverse scholars have to face. But I’m not going to let some white-trash criminals get away with their repulsive crimes. It’s terrible enough what they did already. And in addition to that, they’d like to destroy all the intellectual work I’ve been doing since I was a child and a teenager – all the sacrifices I made and all the things I deprived myself of when I was 14, 15, 16 – as I was building the foundations of my academic career. But that’s not going to happen, and this is the end of their academic and financial scam.

Let’s see why the apparition in Shakespeare’s Hamlet is a demon – as Albert Einstein famously said, “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t know it well enough.” The apparition is not Hamlet’s hallucination, since a number of people, including the soldiers, can see it on the ramparts of Elsinore’s castle. And it’s definitely not a soul from Purgatory, since souls in Purgatory cannot use their free will to sin anymore. They only exist within the confines of God’s Will, suffering to expiate their own unrepented sins, and offering their prayers to help other mortal souls along their earthly journey, which is a concept known as “intercessory prayer.” But contrary to this, and far from helping Hamlet in his quest for justice, the apparition commits a mortal sin by pushing the prince to take revenge and murder King Claudius. In this way, we see that the origin of the apparition is not divine, but demonic.

Everyone in the world who wants to learn English must deal with Shakespeare’s plays at one point, particularly with his masterpiece, Hamlet. In this light, people can understand how much money is involved in this academic and financial scam, and how much these white-trash criminals would like to see me dead.

But time is on my side: now there’s a big storm coming and I’m the only one with a big umbrella, to use a nice metaphor, as well as a safe and comfortable place where I can take shelter. Hence, my intention is to enjoy watching that crazy circus from a distance, laughing about it with my family.

This breakthrough in criticism did play a significant role in my being targeted for rape and sex trafficking, as these white-trash criminals and plagiarists also tried to steal my intellectual property, recycling and repackaging it for themselves, e.g. Saussy, Giuseppe Mazzotta, Jeffrey Knapp, etc. Rather unsuccessfully, since in the end, I’ve overcome every obstacle and was able to copyright my critical analysis at the U.S. Library of Congress. And now, their wishful thinking and plagiarist dreams have become much more difficult to realize in practice.

SEVIS p.1, issued by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2005.

In the fall semester 2005, I started my doctoral program in comparative literature at Yale, where I was awarded a full merit fellowship for the entire duration of the program, namely, 72 months (6 years), as specified in this SEVIS document issued by the U.S. Department of Justice, cf. high-definition pictures in JPG. This official certificate was covered up by Yale as part of the financial fraud that followed the rapes and sex-trafficking, in a retaliation effort to get rid of me as one of the victims of their violent and racist crimes, cf. Section 9.

EXHIBIT 26

Myself at 29, at the time of the racially motivated rapes and sex trafficking denounced in the Criminal Complaint.

I am a global citizen and have travelled all over the world. I take good care of myself, have a closet full of beautiful and elegant clothes, and a picture-perfect BMI (Body Mass Index).

Unlike many white-trash pseudo-academicians in the U.S., I have no vices, which is also very good for my bank account. I don’t drink or smoke, and I’ve never used drugs in my entire life. I train hard in my home gym, always cook at home using only the finest ingredients, and have a calorie budget of 1800 Kcal/day.

I’m 165 cm (5’5”) tall for 52 kg (ca. 114.6 pounds) with a BMI of 19.1, where normal weight is between 18.5 and 24.9; underweight is below 18.5; overweight is between 25 and 29.9; and obesity is 30 or greater, according to the U.S. Dep’t of Health & Human Services. With the covid-19 pandemic, many people all of a sudden realized how important it is to avoid overweight and obesity as the most dangerous underlying conditions, and how many Americans actually are overweight or obese, including children, very sadly.

But my BMI has been consistently low through the years. For instance, in these 3 pictures (Exhibits 23-25), I was 53 kg (ca. 116.8 pounds) with a BMI of 19.5, on the lower end of the normal-weight window (from 18.5 to 24.9).

I must say this not to body-shame others but because, after being a victim of racially-motivated rape and sex trafficking, the white-trash sex offenders denounced in this Criminal Complaint tried to cover up their crimes claiming I was “too ugly, fat and handicapped to be raped.” Anyone uttering such sexist, racist and ableist nonsense in public would get instantly fired. And if a candidate for the U.S. presidency – or indeed any public office – were discovered saying this, he would be forced to give up the race.

That’s illegal and also factually false, considering that people with disabilities are statistically more likely to be molested and raped, since they are perceived as helpless. And they are all protected categories according to ADA and the Civil Rights Act, precisely to avoid sexual and other forms of exploitation. But in addition to these facts, this evidence also proves that’s a ridiculously false claim uttered by desperate individuals, desperately trying to cover their white-trash arse. And reality is very, very different from their malicious defamation.

I’m African and have African DNA, but having good genes does not exonerate one from training. I’ve always practiced sports: ballet and rhythmic gymnastics, since I was a child; and in recent years, I’ve added weight-lifting w/ Swedish ELEIKO and cycling w/ Peloton.

In the “land of the free,” I’ve had to fight racial discrimination and bigoted, sexist stereotypes according to which, if you’re good-looking and take care of yourself, you can’t possibly be intelligent and creative – and vice versa.

That nonsense comes to an end today.

But the racist sex offenders described in this Criminal Complaint claimed I was “handicapped” on a “wheelchair” and advised Yale not to honor its 6-year contract with me or they would have to pay for my “rehabilitation.”

Apart from being 1) completely illegal and against the Civil Rights Act & Americans with Disabilities Act, that’s also 2) ridiculously false, as shown in these beautiful pictures.

And on top of that, it is 3) a paradoxical projection, given that Saussy and Mazzotta are physically repulsive and have many physical and mental illnesses of their own, for which they have exploited Yale’s health insurance for decades, also extending it to their family members who are mentally and/or physically disabled, e.g. Juliana Saussy was treated for schizophrenia and autism by Dr. Charles Preston Wiles, cf. Section 4.

But there’s even a fourth layer of hypocrisy and malice here, given that 4) the sex offenders were driven by a lewd interest in my “Fleshlight genitals,” cf. Section 2.

EXHIBIT 32

Myself in 2022-2023 at 46, with a BMI of 19.1.

In this country, I’ve always had to face the racist violence and pathological envy of bigoted, white-trash individuals who wanted to rape, defame and physically eliminate me just because I was smart and independent as well as good-looking and athletic. Some of their pictures are included below.

Perhaps they should meditate on George Lakoff’s words: “Empathy is why we have the values of freedom, fairness, and equality – for everyone, not just for certain individuals. If we put ourselves in the shoes of others, we will want them to be free and treated fairly. Empathy with all leads to equality: nobody should be treated worse than anyone else.” “Progressive ideals are based on empathy.”

Miss Kathryn Lofton – a personal friend and supporter of convicted pedophile James Lara – maliciously slandered an African and non-binary victim of rape and sex trafficking, in order to protect the sex-offenders denounced in this Criminal Complaint.

Section 12.

EXHIBIT 34

Miss Katie White-Trash Trumpener – the stupidest, most ignorant and most disgusting academic fraud in “comparative literature,” with an irrelevant and nonsensical dissertation on Jane Austen, cf. the ridiculous “Jane Austen Society” in the Antivirus 3.0.

Moreover, her so-called husband, the deceased Richard Maxwell, was a self-proclaimed “pornography historian,”

a white-trash criminal as well as a known sex offender, having molested dozens of students throughout his shameful, wasteful and worthless life.

Now Miss Trumpener has recycled herself as an “comics expert,” cf. Exhibit 34,

with no self-awareness at all, and no idea of how dumb she is.

In truth, white-trash Trumpener is a complete academic fraud and a Ghislaine-Maxwell character,

who has always aided and abetted the “Stanford buddies” described and denounced in this Criminal Complaint.

For years, she’s been maliciously slandering their victims of color in exchange for money and academic favors,

blindly believing there would be no accountability.

But that’s just a blind and irrational belief.

So much money and so many resources taken away from African Americans and other students and scholars of color!

“Raymond Lurie,” aka “Ray Lurie,” aka “Ray Lurid.” 

Ray Lurie represents an unsurpassed academic and financial fraud, which has been going on for over 40 years.

Indeed, he’s the embodiment of white-trash itself, and material for the Guinness World Record!

Lurie began “working on” his comp. lit. dissertation dabbling with Shakespeare in the 1980s.

But after 40+ years, he’s never been able to go past the first chapter,

while some of his “advisors” have died along the way.

Bad luck!

Despite the fact that Lurie is objectively unable to write and conduct academic research,

David Quint from the comp. lit. department has “sponsored” him for more than 40 different teaching jobs

in more than 20 different departments that have nothing to do with comparative literature.

In this way, Quint and Lurie have scammed thousands of students and scholars of color,

and they have stolen an incredible amount of money and resources away from African Americans.

Lurie was fired and kicked out of Yale in 2011-12.

But since then, he has recycled himself as a self-appointed “scholar of history”

as well as a “history professor” at Sacred Heart University (Fairfield, CT) –

very paradoxical titles, since he has ZERO academic degrees in history,

and he’s not a scholar in ANY field, not just comparative literature.

Ray Lurie’s only real “qualification” is the fact that he has stolen money from the highest number of students

over the last 40+ years, especially students of color and their families.

Indeed, nobody can beat him as the #1 “ignorant adjunct and scammer” –

he holds the Guinness World Record in that category, and no one else can even come close.

Miss Justine Bunis, B.A. – shown here in this bizarre and cringe-worthy picture – aided and abetted for the racist sex offenders by maliciously defaming their African and non-binary victim in exchange for money and favors in her last year of college, cf. Section 12. But it didn’t work.

Now, white-trash Miss Bunis is in her mid-thirties and, after losing her non-essential job due to covid-19, she found another average 9-to-5, with which she can’t qualify for a mortgage and can’t even make ends meet without the continuing support of her white-trash daddy – who keeps paying and paying for nothing. So much for so little.

In order to eliminate me as a non-binary and ethnically-diverse victim of sexual violence and sex trafficking, the racist sex offenders falsely claimed I was not “elegant” enough to teach Yale students. Again, the evidence shows that’s ridiculously false, and also extremely paradoxical, since the standards of elegance are much higher in Europe than in the States. Here, many people on campus dress like bums, cf. pictures of Lofton, Trumpener and Mazzotta included above, and more evidence of this in Section 12.

I have over 100 elegant dresses, like the black velvet pictured here; and ca. 30 elegant pants – one for each day of the month – with matching shirts, tops and jackets. Not counting casual sportswear, jeans, t-shirts and bikinis.

As for shoes, I have a collection of pumps and high heels that would earn the respect of Sarah Jessica Parker.

EXHIBIT 39

I love dressing up for work, which I consider a sign of respect toward others.

I have an international background and I have travelled all over the world. Looking at American “academia” from an international perspective, I find that the general shabbiness of would-be “academicians” is truly deplorable.

Some lazy and hypocritical individuals even try to claim, in a self-serving manner, that being ugly, dirty, smelly and shabby is really a sign of intelligence, e.g. Lofton, Trumpener, Mazzotta, Saussy, etc.

You’re ugly as hell – that’s a sign you must be smart!

You dress like a bum – that’s a sign you’re an intellectual!

You stink like manure, e.g. Mazzotta and Saussy– then you must be a genius!

That’s just ridiculous and repulsive.

EXHIBIT 40

My LGBTQI+ body art and symbolism, which I’ve been collecting for years all around the world.

Miss Kathryn Lofton – a white-trash Karen and personal friend of convicted pedophile James Lara – claimed that all my academic research on Shakespeare, Dante and Joyce can be stolen and “appropriated” by others because I’m a “Voodoo Nigger,” a “Black witch” as in the Salem Trials and – paradoxically, at the same time – a “Catholic bigot.” Hence, I don’t deserve to exist, I should be eliminated, and she should write my “Testament,” cf. Section 12. So many racist hate crimes and death threats will bring her down, in the hands of justice.

It’s impossible for me to be a “bigot,” Catholic or otherwise, when 20% of my African skin is artistically inked with LGBTQI+ symbolism. In truth, Miss Lofton is a violent racist, an academic fraud, a corrupt parasite and a dangerous bigot for slandering and sending death-threats against non-binary people of African descent, who are victims of rape and sex trafficking.

I am a global citizen and I have travelled all over the world. My body art represents the cultural tradition and symbolism of many different cultures: Paris, London, Tokyo, New York. Furthermore, for years I’ve been collecting LGBTQI+ tattoos and body art. For instance: the three roses, the purple rose, the crown of thorns and the Buddhist symbol, which I share with lead singer of Depeche Mode, Dave Gahan – he has it on his chest, while I have it on my right ankle. As for the accusation of being a “Nigger,” I’m certainly guilty of that.

EXHIBIT 41

My LGBTQI+ body art and symbolism:

The Buddhist symbol, which I have in common with singer of Depeche Mode, Dave Gahan.

I also have a large tribal with a crown of thorns on both my shoulders, which is another classic LGBTQI+ symbol, in addition to the three roses and the purple rose shown above, cf. Exhibit 39.

Real LGBTQI+ people like myself are discriminated against throughout their life – they don’t make a career because they’re LGBTQI+, but in spite of it. For instance, many artists in the LGBTQI+ community had to struggle to emerge like Joan Jett and The Cure’s lead singer Robert Smith; while others had to face various types of discrimination, like Culture Club’s lead singer, George Alan O’Dowd aka Boy George. They did not make a career because they were LGBTQI+, but in spite of it.

EXHIBIT 42

My father was an architect and would often take me to visit his fancy construction sites. This one was our second home in the Apennines mountains, which he designed and oversaw himself. That’s very different from Tupper Saussy, cf. Presentation and Sections 4, 11 and 12.

In this picture, I was two (‘the terrible twos’), which is why he looks both amused and overwhelmed.

I loved my dad and wanted to see him one last time before he passed away, but I was prevented from doing so because the sex offenders stole my European passport and used it to blackmail me, cf. Sections 1 and 5.

My father was very smart, sophisticated and good-looking – and people would often compare him to Federico Fellini’s favorite actor and alter-ego, Marcello Mastroianni, see picture below.

EXHIBIT 43

Africans are perfectly FREE to use intellectual irony and satire to denounce and tell the truth about the corruption and crimes of stupid, white-trash individuals. 

I’m African with African DNA and, as a victim of racially-motivated rape and sex trafficking, I know that using irony and satire against sex offenders: 1) helps other innocent victims, who in this way can recognize the same criminal patterns and avoid the perpetrators; 2) helps the affected victims, who can find closure in telling the truth; 3) helps society understand the dangers of violence against Africans and ethnically diverse people, LGBTQIA+, women and children.

We must put an end to sexual violence, and it all starts by telling the truth. 

EROC, End Rape On Campus

#BelieveYaleSurvivors

Really?

Advanced Graduate Course on “Irony & Satire, Humanities 658”

The following is an example of intellectual irony and satire, on different levels, as explained below. 

      

 

This is a perfect example of irony and satire. One of the white-trash individuals who raped me was, in the end, found out and denounced by his wife, Yu-Lin Wang, who of course proceeded to divorce him and take everything. After that, his main priority was to cover his ass and do some “damage control.” And in order to do so, Saussy stole my identity, maliciously slandered me and projected on me all his crimes, always taking advantage of the fact that I’m an African immigrant with African DNA.

To cover his ass and get away with murder, Saussy maliciously slandered and defamed me, claiming for instance that I was “too ugly to be raped.” That’s both a ridiculously false claim and a pathetic projection. And therefore, this is the first level of irony and satire: rape is a pathological abuse of power, where some deranged criminals want to destroy other human beings they see as “inferiors” — like women and children, people of color and LGBTQIA+ — and it has nothing to do with physical appearances.

As a second layer of irony and satire, I included many of my personal pix in “My Academic Resume,” which prove and demonstrate that I’m a good-looking, non-binary individual and that reality is very different from Saussy’s malicious slander.

And the third layer of irony and satire has to do with the fact that the crazy, ugly hag shown in the picture above is Saussy’s current partner, Miss Olga Solovieva, also known as Stupidieva: an ignorant, white-trash Karen, as well as a poor and destitute ex-grad student from Russia, who’s only too happy to look the other way while Saussy harasses and molests other African students and scholars.

So, look who’s talking! What a hypocrite!

These are completely ignorant and worthless, white-trash individuals.      

Comparative Literatures: 

  

Lord God!

This is the end of Saussy’s malicious slander. 

According to Aristotle, the greatest form of genius is recognizing similarities between different entities…   

    

This is me now, in January 2023, very proud of my racial diversity and LGBTQIA+ tattoos.  

All of a sudden, in 2020, people realized that obesity is a dangerous underlying condition, esp. in countries like the U.S., where even children often have diabetes. To avoid all that, lifestyle is key. I’m African with African DNA, but having good genes doesn’t exonerate you from following a good diet and a workout routine.

I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, and I have a calorie budget of 1800 Kcal/day, inclusive of everything. I’ve always practiced ballet and rhythmic gymnastics, and recently I’ve added Peloton and body building with Swedish ELEIKO weights. Also, it’s better to cook at home instead of eating out, choosing healthy and nutritious ingredients. As a result, my BMI is 19.1, almost at the cusp of underweight, so kudos to myself! 

There’s a reason for everything. This is my home gym on expensive blue cement, creating what looks like a magical lake. My equipment includes a Peloton bike, Sole Treadmill, Swedish ELEIKO weights, and of course the LGBTQIA+ and BLM flags.

My Academic Resume w/ George Lakoff’s Recommendation to Yale for his Metaphor Class at U.C. Berkeley

To do some damage control and cover his white-trash ass, Saussy stole my identity and projected on me not only his own crimes, but also the crimes of his racist father, Tupper Saussy: an affiliate of the KKK, convicted felon and prison inmate, and personal friend and biographer of the same James Earl Ray who murdered Civil Rights Leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

No less than the murderer of MLK! 

The imbalance of power between an African, non-binary student on an immigrant VISA and a local scammer posing as a professor – in fact, nothing but a racist and homophobic sex-offender who’s 16 years older than his victims – is simply unimaginable. 

The “Stanford buddies” used to steal the passports of foreign students – including my E.U. passport – and they would use them to blackmail and force students to take OBGYN visits at a Planned Parenthood location, in order to check if they were free of STDs and if their genitals were shaped like a “Fleshlight,” a “masturbatory device” invented in the 1990s: https://www.fleshlight.com/  

And to conceal their violent crimes and get away with murder, the sex offenders engaged in even more crimes, such as:

Racism and racist hate crimes; discrimination against protected categories like race, gender, national origin and disability, cf. Americans with Disabilities Act and Civil Rights Act; defamation of character with malicious slander and libel; email fraud; academic and financial fraud; forgery; financial retaliation; blackmail with an illegal attempt at making me sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in exchange for approving my original dissertation, which in the end I copyrighted at the U.S. Library of Congress. 

Many of these violent crimes could have been completely avoided if Richard Levin and Jane Levin at Yale had been transparent about Saussy’s affiliation with the KKK and his illegal conflict of interests with a Russian “grad student” called Olga Solovieva: a middle-aged individual who was in fact one of his mistresses, and whose “career” he promoted above that of anyone else, also financing it with dozens of fake recommendation letters in order to steal unmerited fellowships from many different universities. What a scam!  

But there was absolutely NO transparency and NO disclosure from Richard and Jane Levin — only a pathetic attempt to conceal their own racist crimes over the years. In fact, even now, Richard and Jane Levin have offered NO reparation for these racist crimes, and they are still pathetically trying to conceal Saussy’s illegal conflict of interests and his factual and objective affiliation with the Klan.

A hockey player, with Richard and Jane Levin: 

Are you really married with this thing here?”

Indeed, let’s talk about something objective, Miss Levin: Saussy’s father, Tupper Saussy (07/03/1936 – 03/16/2007), was a convicted felon and prison inmate, a conspiracy theorist diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, and the personal friend and biographer of the same James Earl Ray who murdered Civil Rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Indeed, Tupper Saussy wrote Ray’s biography, Tennessee Waltz: The Making of a Political Prisoner (1987), and was one of the most zealous affiliates of the Klan. 

Public records at the New Haven Superior Court show that, in order to make money with his father’s book sales, Saussy set up a cover-up limited liability company called “Contrary Waltz, LLC.” And to this day, he’s still making money with the Klan’s racist ideology, and still profiting from the sales of Tupper Saussy’s crazy KKK conspiracies. 

Saussy’s connection with the KKK is a deplorable and disgusting objective fact. Saussy’s still making money with his father’s KKK theories, so if there’s anyone who should pay Reparations to African Americans, that’s precisely white trash like Saussy – racist, ignorant, stupid and bigoted.  

The “Jane Austen Society” of Miss Levin — a big academic and financial fraud.  

Miss Levin is a multi-million dollar scam, both academically and financially — she’s nothing but an ignorant, white-trash Karen with a nonsensical and autobiographical dissertation on “Marriages in Jane Austen,” which was complete garbage, and nothing but a projection of her wasted life.  

But that gave her a pretext to steal millions of dollars in students’ tuition fees and taxpayers’ money, meddling in academic fields about which she knows absolutely nothing — not only in much more complex forms of literature like Shakespeare and James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, but even in global politics and the world economy! What the fuck does Miss Levin know about ANYTHING AT ALL with a worthless and irrelevant dissertation on Jane Austen? 

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

But Miss Levin certainly knows about RACISM: the numbers prove, as another objective fact, that she has never produced one single African scholar in her entire, worthless “career” at Yale, courtesy of her white-trash husband. 

“Sometimes making a critical comment in class… can entail thinking twice”???

You can’t even write, you worthless piece of shit.

The correct verb is TO REQUIRE, and that’s a double mistake, both at the level of meaning and of logic – or lack thereof, in your pathetic case.

 

Who’s this piece of shit?

Akbar Shit Ahmed

Before slandering non-binary people of color, first make sure you even know how to use a toilet, you dirty son of a bitch.

AHMED NEEDS A MED! 

You’re racist, sexist, and have very troubling anti-social tendencies, Ahmed — you definitely need some antipsychotic drugs like Tupper Saussy: the convicted felon, KKK member, conspiracy theorist and biographer of James Ear Ray, cf. Tennessee Waltz: The Making of a Political Prisoner (1987), marketed by his son’s cover-up company, “Contrary Waltz, LLC.”    

So much money was wasted on that stupid piece of shit, which could have been allocated for African Americans!

But that’s what happens when people are NOT selected based on merit and/or race, but solely based on corruption and connections with someone inside Yale. Like this ignorant piece of shit, Ahmed, whose aunt (yes, his old aunt!) was acquainted with the late Sara Suleri Goodyear in the English dep’t. As a result, he was illegally admitted at the expenses of other African Americans who had all the credentials, and the merit, to deserve that opportunity.

Talk about racism and social injustice!

But slander didn’t pay very well…

How’s life back in Pakistan – can you find a decent toilet?

Do you know how to use toilet paper?

And how are your parents doing? Do they have toilet paper? Are they proud of your dirty ass?

The “Jane Austen Society” is one of the main academic and financial fraud of Jane Levin.

40 years ago, Miss Levin got into academia through the backdoor with a worthless and unpublishable dissertation about “Marriages in Jane Austen.” 

And thanks to her white-trash husband who gave her a job at Yale, she’s been stealing millions of dollars since, vomiting nonsense about any other topic, from Homer to world economy, taking resources and money away from African Americans and other people of color.

Talk about systemic racism and social injustice!

 

LET’S TALK ABOUT PAKISTAN FROM A COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE.

There’s a big problem with PUBLIC DEFECATION in Pakistan, cf. video documentary below.

Moreover, Pakistan is a failed state sponsor of terrorism, and there is NO SEPARATION OF POWERS between politics and violent religious ideologies, according to which 8 y/o children can be raped and given up for a polygamous “marriage” with an old pervert, exploited for slave labor, denied education and civil rights, and kept in perpetual ignorance and poverty — all in the name of “god,” yeah right.

Talk about bigotry! Who’s a bigot, you ignorant piece of crap! 

And FYI, meaning here “For Your Ignorance,” the separation of powers was theorized and implemented centuries ago in many other countries around the world. 

Not surprisingly, Pakistan is now a rogue state plagued by systemic poverty, ignorance, bigotry, racism and sexism, and battling against basic problems that were solved many centuries ago, in many other parts of the globe.   

The Pantheon, Rome

The Roman Empire lasted for one thousand years and laid the foundations for the legal code, especially for DUE PROCESS, as it is practiced in every democratic country where people are innocent until proven guilty. They also created Roman roads that are still transitable like Via Emilia, majestic architecture, aqueducts and plumbing, public baths, and public sanitation as the precondition for a flourishing metropolis like Rome. 

And the Romans were not white caucasians, which is another reason to admire their unparalleled achievements — especially when all other white-trash empires have already crumbled down, with their white-trash, fake puritan ideologies that were used to put a veneer of “Christian self-righteousness” on the extermination and enslavement of millions of people of color.  

                

Augustus of Prima Porta – Monumental statue of Caesar Augustus, Rome.

Ahmed is so fucking ignorant that I have to write captions for these famous pix, otherwise he’ll never even understand what they mean.  

Where was Pakistan 2500 years ago?

More or less where it is now.

PAKISTAN: Toilet woes

What a great culture – they don’t even have toilets!

Quoting from the documentary: 

“Poor law and order situation…”

“There is no water and no electricity.” 

“But the local government denies incompetence…”

“For now, the toilet project remains on paper.”

“Many have to respond to the call of nature by heading to the bushes.”

“They have to relieve themselves in the open behind a bush.”

Ribbonry, of course — an essential academic field. 

Now that Ahmed is “universally and objectively” unemployed, 

Miss Levin should give him a job as a secretary at the “Jane Austen Society” — a bunch of ignorant, stupid Karens:

They put on a ridiculous costume… 

They get drunk at the bar…  

And they pretend to be “intellectuals,” yeah right! :))) 

YOUR SCAM IS OVER!

 

And who the fuck is John Rogers? 

Good question!

Nobody knows. 

 

Ignorant, white-trash puritans in the U.S. are always waiting for the end of the world — that’s the scam they came up with to steal money from the ignorant masses.   

Enough with this Tupper-Saussy-like conspiracy theory about the end of the world!

They should invent a different scam — a different fake ideology — if they want to keep stealing money :)))

   

You can’t do the classics because you’re ignorant; 

you can’t do the bible because “god” is just a narrative; 

you can’t do deconstruction because it has imploded,

revealing that it was just the white-trash cult of personality of the so-called critic;

you can’t do critical race theory precisely because you’re stupid white trash… 

So, what the fuck are you doing? 

He doesn’t even know. 

Please, BLM students, don’t get him fired or he won’t be able to pay off his mortgage! :))) 

Are these scammers still preaching their white-trash, fake puritan ideologies that were used to justify the extermination and enslavement of “Voodoo Niggers” like myself? 

Or are they hiding under a rock like snails, for fear of BLM?

Trying to repackage the old, racist shit in a new wrap to keep stealing money — but it won’t work. 

Please, do me a favor: get lost and disappear forever. 

I don’t even want to see your white-trash, ugly faces ever again, thanks! 

John Rogers is a white-trash, racist parasite who has never produced one single African scholar in his entire, irrelevant “career.”

He knows perfectly well that Miss Jane Levin — with her “Jane Austen Society” — is a multi-million dollar financial fraud,

and yet he’s been sucking her cunt for decades, trying to pay off his mortgage.

Good luck with that! 

This is the end of his racist and homophobic slander against a non-binary “Nigger” like myself. 

The Real Housewives of Jane Austen.

All the facts about Saussy are documented in public records available at the New Haven Superior Court, Docket # FA-07-4027957S.

After the scandal caused by Yu-Lin Wang’s divorce, Richard and Jane Levin tried to do some “damage control” by firing and getting rid of Saussy and Olga Solovieva. And after being fired, they relocated to the University of Chicago, where he’s still her “supervisor” in the same dep’t of comparative literature with numerous conflicts of interests, of course, both academically and financially.  

Another customer of Miss Solovieva’s. 

Miss Olga Solovieva from Russia is both a scammer and a self-proclaimed “expert in theology,” with a dissertation on the “Body of Christ” that was supervised, approved and passed by her 63-year-old boyfriend, Saussy. The two white-trash plagiarists are still working together at the University of Chicago, with an illegal conflict of interests that deprives so many women academicians of color of their opportunity, money and work.

And what’s even worse, the two are still in close contact with diverse students and scholars, creating situations of great danger and abuse, especially for diverse students and scholars: LGBTQIA+ and Africans like myself, women and other people of color. It is therefore essential to warn other innocent students and their families – especially Africans, the ethnically and culturally diverse, foreign students and scholars on a VISA, women and the LGBTQIA+ community – against this type of racially-motivated, violent crimes in U.S. colleges and universities. 

       

A rare picture of Ms. Yu-Lin Wang (b. 1959) back in the 1990s. 

Saussy and Solovieva got fired, but this partial act of justice did not come from Yale’s corrupt administrators, Richard and Jane Levin, who actually tried to minimize or even deny Saussy’s racist crimes for fear of losing money and academic standing.

No, this partial act of justice actually came from the self-interest of Saussy’s smart ex-wife, Ms. Yu-Lin Wang, as soon as she realized that he was cheating on her, and sexually abusing students and scholars of color like myself.

Saussy also had an affair — and an illegal conflict of interests — with a mature Russian “grad student” called Olga Solovieva (b. 1971), a white-trash Karen who was his “dissertation advisee.” In order to get his stupid girlfriend promoted, and make money with her additional salary after his financially devastating divorce, he wanted to “supervise”  — or perhaps plagiarize — her ridiculous dissertation on “The Body of Christ.” 

Now, what a paradoxical topic for a couple of stupid cheats!

And what the heck does Saussy know about Christian theology? 

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.  

Here’s Olga Solovieva admitting the truth:  

Why advertising your rotten teeth??? 

Too much Russian vodka, perhaps, Miss Olga Boozava? 

Well, according to your retarded friend, Ahmed: 

“Sometimes posting pix of your rotten teeth can entail thinking twice.” 

Thanks to Ms. Yu-LIn Wang, both Saussy and Solovieva were fired and kicked out of Yale.  

Then, it took Saussy 13 more years to rework that crazy and nonsensical rant about the “Body of Christ.” 

13 years stealing money and work opportunities away from Africans and other students and scholars of color. Now, Saussy is still “supervising” Miss Stupidieva in the same dep’t of comparative literature at the University of Chicago, with an illegal conflict of interests. 

What a massive academic fraud & financial scam! 

All international students and scholars should be very careful, since bigoted and white-trash racists like Saussy are often hidden in pseudo-liberal universities, promoting their own stupid mistresses to the detriment of much better candidates — and of course the main victims are always Africans and other people of color. 

But that’s not all — Saussy also slandered my relatives and family members calling them “Niggers” and claiming I should lose my job at Yale because “[my] relatives are all Niggers.”

That’s not just ILLEGAL and DEPLORABLE, 

but also extremely paradoxical considering that Saussy’s deceased father, Tupper Saussy, was a convicted felon and jail inmate, a KKK member, and an intimate friend and biographer of the same J.E. Ray who murdered Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.! 

And on top of that — as if that racist family background were not enough — Saussy’s brothers, Phil and Larry, are kitchen workers! 

Phil (first on the left) and Larry (first on the right), see picture below.  

LOOK WHO’S TALKING!!!

Look who’s slandering and accusing others! 

These hypocrites should STOP projecting their own failures and mistakes on other people. 

This is THEIR fucked-up, racist and ignorant background — NOT anyone else’s.

Never throw stones if you live in a glass house, because the victims will always tell the truth. 

 

   

Saussy v. Saussy

Connecticut Superior Court Judicial District of New Haven at New Haven

May 29, 2009

2009 Ct. Sup. 8912 (Conn. Super. Ct. 2009)

Memorandum of Decision

Public court documents available at the New Haven Superior Court. 

QUOTE:

“The court finds that the husband’s claim that the breakdown of the marriage was due to his wife’s lack of support is not supported by the credible evidence.

This court finds the husband to be at greater fault for the breakdown of the marriage, as evidenced by HIS MENTAL STATE

and by [his] extramarital relationship with another woman.”

(Memorandum of Decision, Further Findings and Orders, p.20)

***

FYI, it’s quite rare for a judge to mention someone’s “mental state” as one of the main reasons to assign victory to the other party — that means it must have been really bad. 

QUOTE:

“The husband [Saussy] claims the breakdown of the marriage was caused by the wife’s lack of support in his professional life. He also claims that the wife [Wang] refused to join him at professional events, that she accused him of being selfish and self-indulgent, and that she put herself between him and the children.”

“He further claims that her lack of support for his career moves resulted in his suffering from SUICIDAL THOUGHTS and DEPRESSION, cf. Note 6.” 

“Note 6. Husband testified that in 2001 he had one year leave from Stanford (to write a book) and that he was so conflicted over whether or not to accept the position at Yale that he spent most of the year lying on the floor of [his] office being OBSESSED WITH THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE.”

(Testimony 12/15/08, p.119) 

“Mr. Farmer, a longtime friend of the husband, testified that husband had confided in him [sic] that he was unhappy with the marriage for a long period of time.”

“In 2001, the husband was TREATED BY A PSYCHIATRIST and was prescribed medications for DEPRESSION.”

“The wife claims, for the most part, that the parties had a happy marriage and shared a common interest in Chinese literature and family life, and that she always put her husband’s needs first.”

“She testified that she had witnessed EMOTIONAL INSTABILITY on the part of her husband throughout the marriage,

but she tried to support him in his work and was proud of how successful he had become as a scholar in ancient Chinese literature, cf. Note 7.”

“Note 7. The wife described her husband as VERY INSECURE and ‘SOCIALLY KIND OF WEIRD'” 

“She stated that while husband enjoys social events, HE DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO BEHAVE and that his ‘MOOD [IS] ALWAYS UP AND DOWN VERY MUCH.” 

(Testimony 1/6/09)

 “The wife also described certain TROUBLING CONDUCT by the husband during the course of the marriage,

such as BANGING HIS HEAD AGAINST A WALL, and other BIZARRE BEHAVIORS.”   

Her claims regarding husband’s personality were CORROBORATED by husband’s aunt, Eugenia Commack, cf. Note 8.”

“Note 8. Ms. Commack described the husband as having been a very bright but VERY TROUBLED CHILD who was UNABLE TO SOCIALLY INTERACT.”

“Her testimony described the wife as a supportive and loving spouse.” 

“The wife claims she became aware of the magnitude of the problems in their marriage in the summer of 2007, after the daughter accessed her husband’s computer and discovered emails between her husband and another woman, cf. Note 9.”

“Note 9. The court accepts as credible the testimony of the wife, that in the summer of 2007, the daughter accessed the husband’s computer for her personal use and found the husband’s personal communications with [Olga Solovieva], evidencing the extramarital relationship, and that the daughter then shared this information with her mother.”

(Testimony 1/5/09, p.136)

“The testimony of the parties reveal a marriage wherein the husband controlled virtually every aspect of familial life. The husband brought his wife to the U.S. knowing that she was not fluent in the English language and he determined the family was to speak only Chinese in the home. He further determined that there would be no television in the home. The wife was often uncomfortable in academic and/or social settings because she did not become fluent in English and it is apparent that the husband BLAMES THE WIFE FOR HER DISCOMFORT…”

(Memorandum of Decision, pp.5-6) 

***

PAY ATTENTION TO THE PATTERN OF BLAMING THE VICTIM: first he creates a terrible problem — like depriving people of their freedom of expression, freedom of association and right to work in the United States — and then he blames his victim for that! That’s exactly what he tried to do against me, as an African and non-binary victim of rape.  

And banging his head against the wall?

TALK ABOUT BIZARRE!

Since Saussy “doesn’t know how to behave,” he should never have been allowed to be in contact with much younger students and scholars of color — they are at risk of being abused!  

“His mood is always up and down very much” — that’s the definition of manic depression. 

Therefore, don’t slander other innocent people by projecting on them your own problems!

Where’s Miss Bunis now?

Miss Bunis, B.A. – shown here in this bizarre and cringe-worthy picture – aided and abetted for racist sex offenders at Yale by maliciously defaming their African and non-binary victim.

But it didn’t work.

Now, this white-trash Karen is her mid-thirties and can’t even make ends meet without her daddy, who keeps paying and paying for nothing.

So much for so little! 

“Progressive ideals are based on empathy.”

“Empathy with all leads to equality: nobody should be treated worse than anyone else,” cf. George Lakoff.

The evidence proves that “administrators” at Yale knew everything about this massive financial scam, have never been transparent about it — as it is required by law — and instead tried to cover it up.

And in so doing, they didn’t care about Africans, LGBTQIA+ and other diverse students and scholars who were victims of Saussy and Solovieva.

That’s an illegal conflict of interests that creates a toxic work environment — especially for LGBTQIA+ students and scholars, Africans and other people of color — and there was absolutely NO transparency and NO disclosure about it from Richard and Jane Levin, as it is required by law. But what do they care about the law, right?

MOTION FOR FORENSIC EXAMINATION OF COMPUTER HARD DRIVE

DUE TO PLAINTIFF’S INTENTIONALLY DELETING EMAILS

AND FAILING TO SAVE EMAILS TO AND FROM HIS GIRLFRIEND, PENDENTE LITE.  

“The defendant has testified in deposition on 12/11/07 that he had an adulterous affair with said woman during the marriage,

and that he intentionally deleted emails to and from said woman in August 2007,

immediately prior to commencing this divorce action,

and that since that time he has failed to save emails.

He testified that these activities occurred on his office laptop computer and his personal laptop computer.” 

“The hard drives from the computers will be examined by professionals at Enterprise Computers Co.,

specifically to retrieve and print out only emails to and from [Olga Solovieva].”

TALK ABOUT AN EMAIL SCANDAL!

These public court documents show an illegal exchange of emails between the “chairman” of “comparative literature” — no less! :))) — and his mature Russian mistress, who just so happens to be his “dissertation advisee” as well.

That illegal conflict of interests went unpunished, thus becoming a multi-million dollar academic and financial fraud, whose victims are above all LGBTQIA+, Africans and other students and scholars of color.

Where’s Ed Barnaby now? 

That racist, white-trash thief was fired immediately after he slandered an African and non-binary victim of rape at Yale, 

and had to relocate in Virginia in a hurry, living from paycheck to paycheck. 

Crime doesn’t pay, especially if you’re fucking stupid and retarded like these two morons. 

All white-trash thieves go to jail — send us a pic when you get there, you drunktards!

These are recovered emails dating back to 2002, 

which was exactly 2 years before Saussy started at Yale, in 2004. 

And how about all the “unrecovered” emails in prior years? 

Did Saussy perhaps help Olga Solovieva get accepted at Yale on a 6-year fellowship 

by writing one of those fake “academic recommendations” quoted above? 

Did he help her obtain other fellowships and academic jobs at other universities? 

Did he help her “rewrite” her nonsensical dissertation on the “Body of Christ” — how objective is that, exactly? — and get a publishing contract for that garbage? 

Has he ever plagiarized other essays and papers for her, since they are in the same “comparative literature” department?

These are all very good questions.
