46 THIRD CENSUS OF FINNEGANS WAKE that Nausicaa (q.v.) wrote the Odyssey. 189.8 (or some other Butler). *Butt and Hocksett's, 529.17. *Butt and Taff—comic actors in the TV play, "How Buckley (q.v.) Shot the Russian General." I agree with Budgen (324) that Butt = Shaun, Taff = Shem(q.v.). See also David. For Joyce's gloss on Taff, see Mishe Mishe. His gloss on Butt (I make nothing of it) is: "Parnell ousted Isaac Butt [q.v.] from leadership. The venison purveyor Jacob [q.v.] got the blessing meant for Esau." (Letters, I, 248). It seems to me that in the TV play, Butt is narrator, while Taff is auditor, critic, egger-on to violence. +3.10-11— see Isaac Butt, Isaac, Mishe; +6.7—see Isaac Butt, Hugh, Hubert; +7.12,13— with Falstaff (q.v.); ?8.7, ?.23 (see David); 10.1; 11.19,25; +12.4—with Butler (q.v.), 11,23; 13.14 (the Liffey, q.v., is, or has been, crossed by New Bridge, Old Bridge, Sarah Bridge, Butt Bridge); 16.6 (Tolka, a Dublin river), 20, 22 (see Chontarf); 23.32 (bis),34; 34.17 (see David, Three); 35.27, 34; 45.4; +48. 17—18—with Top (see Sawyer), Bottom (q.v.); +85.15—see Isaac Butt (q.v.; bridge); 88.35,36; 96.11; + 100.9,15,17 —with Butter (q.v.); + 106.33—with Butter (q.v.); 124.1 (bis); 130.13; 169. 2,6; 188.29; 221.6,11; 268.26—27, left margin; +271.19—see Herbert; + 272. 6,7,8—with Bucket and Tool, Becket and Laurence O'Toole (q.q.v.); 302. 10,13; 309.1; 31l.8(bis); +312.7— with Bottom (q.v.); +315.1—with Butcher (q.v.), 12,31,32 (Chontarf); +316.18,19—with Davy Jones (q.v.); +320.23—with Mishe (q.v.),29; 334.6,15; 337.3, + .26—with Budd (q.v.; and Dublin), + .32—36—with Budd, Buddha, Tancred, Artaxerxes, Flavin, Barnabas, Ulick Dean (q.q.v.); 338—54 (Butt and Taff, passim); 338.9,12, +13 (see Budd, Buddha, Adam),.16; 339.20; 340.31—32; 341.16; 342.3,27,+ .32—with Bottom (q.v.); +343.25—with Bottom (q.v.); +346.29—with Budd (q.v.),.36; 349.7,8,10; 354.9,35-36; +358.22—with Mookse, Mick, Mock Turtle (q.q.v.); 359.11; +366.19— with Bickerstaff (q.v.); 369.1; 372.6,7; 374.19; 378.26,27; 394.18; 419.27; ?+428.27—with Butter cup (q.v.); 434.24,25; 440.30; ?+441 .11—12—see Mavis Toffeelips; +444.17—see Butler (q.v.); ?457.22; 458.24; 462.5,17,30 (see David); +464.20—see Butter; 469.7; +483.24,25—see Butter, Pig; 493.3,4; 497.20 (Clontarf); 509.28; 510.19; 512.14; 524.22,30; +525.35—with Herbert (q.v.); 529.17 (see Butt and Hocksett); 533.35, +36—with Butter (q.v.); 534.1,21; 536.4, +14—see White Head-Hat("toff" is sometimes derived from "Top hat"); 538.3 1,34; 539.19; 559.10,28; 567.10; 577.12; 580.32; 593.6,24; +594.12—with Bottom, Tom, Woeful Dane (q.q.v.); +595.7,8-9—with Bet (q.v.); +598.21—with Tom (q.v.); 603.7,13; 606.29,36; +607.35—with Gladstone or G.O.M.

Butt, Isaac (1813—79)—M.P. who was ousted by Parnell (q.v.) from leadership of the Irish nationalist party (Letters, I, 248). I don't make out the important use of Isaac Butt in FW, his relationship with Isaac, Butt and Taff(q.q.v.): if he is always Butt, he must be important. Butt Bridge, across the Liffey (q.v.), is the last but one as you go from Sarah (q.v.) Bridge to the sea. +3.11—with Isaac, Butt and Taff(q.q.v.); +6.7 (see Hubert); + 13.14 (Old, New, Butt, all Liffey bridges); 85.15; +254.13—with Isaac, Butt and Taff(q.q.v.). *Buttall_Gamnsborough's (q.v.)
