more lapwings & waxwings from the archives
from Carolyn to the List,

The archives have a number of references to Icarus, including this excerpt
from a post from Brian Boyd dated April 26 2004 re: Joyce:

The fall of Stephen Dedalus after the apparent apotheosis of this last lofty
flight is made explicit in the library chapter of Ulysses: "Fabulous
artificer, the hawklike man. You flew. Whereto? Newhaven-Dieppe, steerage
passenger. Paris and back. Lapwing. Icarus. Pater, ait. Sebedabbled, fallen,
weltering. Lapwing you are. Lapwing be." (202)
