William Wood was granted letters patent to mint the coin, and Swift saw the licensing of the patent as corrupt. In response, Swift represented Ireland as constitutionally and financially independent of Britain in the Drapier's Letters. Since the subject was politically sensitive, Swift wrote under the pseudonym M. B. Drapier to hide from retaliation. Many Irish people recognized Swift as a hero for his defiance of British control over the Irish nation. Beyond being a hero, many critics have seen Swift, through the persona of the Drapier, as the first to organize a "more universal Irish community", although it is disputed as to who constitutes that community.

Phoenix + Finnegan + "The Middle Egyptian word for the papyrus plants of the swamp in which Osiris was found was rendered by Greek scribes as byblos, which Plutarch in his account of Osiris' journey accepts as a place name: Byblos (Gods, II, 124). In Plutarch's telling of the tale, then, Osiris drifts out to sea and to Byblos in Phoenicia. This is the best-known version of the Osiris cycle, and Joyce seems to have associated Phoenicia with the Egyptian god. This adds a distinctly Osirian note to many of the FW references to Phoenicia as a land of rebirth, for example at 608.32, "the Phoenican wakes"." (Mark L. Troy)
