1909. James Joyce lives in Trieste (Italy) with his family. End of October, he leaves alone for Dublin on a business trip, and stays there until the end of December. He makes a pact with his wife to write to each other erotic letters. The letters of his wife disappeared, but the ones he wrote were published in a now long out-of-print collection in 1975 – and, at the behest of Joyce’s surviving family, were never printed again. The transcriptions of these letters are taken from Richard Ellmann, Selected Letters of James Joyce, Introduction, Faber & Faber, London, 1975.
