Byrne, during the ten years prior to Joyce's enrollment at the university, highest honours in Modern Literature had invariably gone to a woman (55). In Paris, Joyce had been invited by Maud Gonne to call on her, but his 'shabby appear ance' led him to be too proud to take advantage of her suggestion (MBK 198-9). For all his bravado, Joyce was fully aware of the role women could take and were taking in cultural, artistic and intellectual life, and of how limiting male attitudes could be. In Rome in 1906, while working in a bank, he reacted to the opinions of a German co-worker about what a wife should be like - 'able to cook well, to sew, to housekeep, and to play at least one musical 22 James Joyce instrument' - by remarking that 'it's very hard on me to listen to that kind of talk' (LII 157).
I admire her and I love her and I trust her': the trust was essential. In Nora Barnacle he had found someone who would not betray that trust. His father was right when he did find out about Nora, and heard her last name: 'She'll never leave him' Mr Joyce predicted (// 156). Just two weeks before their departure, Stanislaus had wor ried in his diary, 'I never saw Jim manage any affair so badly as he has managed his affair with Miss Barnacle' (76). Stanislaus was wrong: Joyce managed it better than perhaps any other act of his life, and his joining his life to Nora's was perhaps the wisest decision he ever made.
We have seen how much Joyce understood he had been influ enced by his Jesuit education; but an even profounder force on his later art was the transfer from Clongowes to Belvedere, from the countryside to the city. During all his years at Belvedere Joyce was a walker: each day, each evening after school he would wander the streets of Dublin, and he came to know them intimately and, in his own way, lovingly. Dublin was a European capital and a cultural centre, yet it was also - especially in his youth - compact and insular enough to be knowable.
