Last week the sad news reached us that the French scholar, critic, and translator André Topia died after a long struggle with illness.  He was an expert in English-language literature who translated into French some of the masterpieces of modernism (including Lord Jim and Tess of the D’Ubervilles) while also writing eloquently about Joyce’s work.  An important bridge between the study of English and French modernism, his loss will be felt broadly within and beyond the Joyce world.
