    riverrun, past Eve and Adam's

    риверран, прошлый канун и Адам, от отклонения берега к изгибу залива


    Can someone please correct anything grammatically wrong with this. It's the first line of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake and I've been trying to convert that line to Russian.

    The English original is:

    riverrun, past Eve and Adam's, from swerve of shore to bend of bay

    My version:
    русло реки, мимо "Евы и Адама", от изгиба берега к изгибу залива
    BTW, I found an intertesting site with this poem and with a glossary to it.

    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"
