Joyce's centenary celebration in bloom
By the Associated Press
DUBLIN, Ireland - James Joyce sits
behind glass these days in the lobby of
the Greville Arms Hotel in nearby
Mullingar, cross-legged, sneaker-shod,
squinting through a magnifying glass at
Soon after the real-as-life wax figure
was unveiled two months ago, an
outraged dowager upbraided the young
desk staff for commemorating such a
"corrupt and pornographic" writer
"He should not be considered an
Irishman," she declaimed.
IT SEEMS THE Irish, who seldom
forget their saints and scholars, also
sometimes never forgive their sinners.
But this month all is forgiven, and the
late James Joyce is far from forgotten,
as the Irish celebrate the centenary of
their most scrutinized and idolized,
most sanctified and vilified of authors,
the artist who scandalized Dubliners
while immortalizing their city-and
who with his other hand helped shift the
stream of English literature.
A SATISFYING chunk survives of the
"gallant venal city" Joyce loved and
hated. City fathers look for gaggles of
literary tourists to conjure the at-
mosphere and ghosts of Joyce's stories
from its fog-wet alleyways and warm
pubs, its boulevards, parks and chur-
Dubliners have been notably slow to
enshrine their wayward literary son
among the heroic failures, venerable
martyrs and sentimental versifiers who
pack the Irish pantheon.
Only last February, Ned Brennan
complained to his fellow Dublin city
councillors that people were "going
overboard" for the 100th anniversary of
"I DON'T KNOW who we are
catering for here," he said. "The
average man in the street probably
would not even know who Joyce is."
To Brennan's relief, a major expense
of the Year of Joyce, an $8,000 bust to be
unveiled in St. Stephen's Green, is
being picked up by the American Ex-
"Joyce would have thought the spon-
sorship highly appropriate. He lived
most of his life on credit," quipped David
Norris, a Trinity College English lec-
turer who heads the Joyce Foundation
and organized the centenary activities.
IT WAS ALSO fitting that the spon-
sorship came from across the sea-
without American literary and finan-
cial patrons in his lean years, the
prickly expatriate Irishman might
never have won his place as one of the
titans of modern letters.

thoughts that are too threatening. He said he did not
think Kelly was suffering from true amnesia.
Nol called the period that Kelly cannot remember
"an acute psychotic episode."
When asked by Waterman if Kelly had the "sub-
stantial capacity to appreciate the wrongfulness of
his actions" during the shootings, Nol replied, "No
"DURING THE psychotic episode, we don't even
recognize ourselves. We're a different person, a dif- -
ferent body we don't recognize," Nol said.
Kelly had disorders in his formal judgement, or
' perception of reality, Nol said.
He felt to me to have a paranoid base (to his for-
mal judgment), a base of suspicion, a base of anger, a
sense of exaggerated justice," he said. "In our
political and economic system he saw mostly in-
justice, and he was preoccupied with inequity."
KELLY'S operational judgment, or ability'to han-
die real-life situations, was at the level of a nine- or
ten-year-old at the time of the shootings," Nol also
Nol, however, told Washtenaw County Prosecuting
m Attorney Lynwood Noah that Kelly appeared "in
good mental health" during his examinations, which
were made last September and this April. Nol told
Noah that he thought any act of murder was insane,
but later added that although an act may be insane,
"the actor need not be."
Kelly "was not a true sociopath," Nol said adding
he had the potential to feel remorse, guilt, and that he
did have a conscience.
DURING HIS testimony, Nol criticized the report
on Kelly-not yet revealed in court-done by the
State Center for Forensic Psychiatry in Ypsilanti.
The court ordered Kelly to undergo tests at the
forensic center on his competency to stand trial and
his criminal responsibility.
"This report, in my opinion, is not a psychiatric
report, it is a police report," said Nol, who read the
report before conducting his own examination. He
said the report was "written with a preconceived
Robert Brown, a friend of Kelly's and fellow
Omega Psi Phi fraternity member, also testified
yesterday on Kelly's behavior prior to the shootings.
Brown, a student at both the University of
Michigan and Eastern Michigan University, said
Kelly "appeared the same as usual to me" at a party
two days before the slayings.
Brown also said that he noticed a change in Kelly
after the defendant returned from Texas, where
Kelly went to seek work after being dismissed from
the University for academic reasons.
"He didn't talk ... or participate as much," Brown
said. "He kept more to himself than he had in the
