@panzade,
That was the first part of a sentence. The sentence is concluded and begins page one.

@panzade,
I saw a film based on Finnegan's Wake, in 1968. It is the only English language film I ever watched that had English subtitles. But the words in the subtitles often varied from the words spoken. I enjoyed it very much, but still have no great understanding of Joyce's book.

I guess this counts as prose. When I was a teenager, this was one of my favorites I heard at least once a week:
Ite, missa est.

I had to read this in High School.
I'm glad I did
