This chapter discusses the decomposition of source texts in notebooks and notesheets. It looks at Joyce's reading notes as the starting point to try to retrace his reading process. These notes do give an insight into the way Joyce decomposed the texts he read during the composition of his last work, and excerpting from source texts was only one form of decomposition.

Keywords: decomposition; source texts; notebooks; notesheets; Joyce; reading notes; reading process; excerpting
