``A Thankless Occupation'' James Joyce and His Translator Ludmila Savitzky L E O N I D L I VA K Arriving in Paris in July 1920, James Joyce and his family did not intend to stay for more than a few weeks but ended up staying for twenty years, largely thanks to the extensive network of devoted and enthusiastic supporters the writer found in Europe's artistic capital. Some details of Joyce's early years in Paris are only now coming to light as new information emerges from institutional and private collections, drawing our attention to hitherto ignored figures in Joyce's entourage. A case in point is Ludmila Savitzky who did much to introduce Joyce to French literary circles and, eventually, to the reader at large by authoring the first French translation of Joyce's writings--Dedalus: Portrait de l'artiste jeune par lui` ^ meme (Paris: La Sirene, 1924). Until recently, Savitzky's name was by and large absent from Joyce studies. But this situation is sure to change with recent discoveries of new documents and the revival of scholarly interest for this writer, literary and theatre critic, translator, and witness to one of the richest periods in Parisian cultural life.1 Presently, we
