Pen asleep during slaughter. She thinks god did it. Blue
Then the ancient woman went up into the upper chamber laughing aloud, to tell her mistress how her dear lord was within, and her knees moved fast for joy, and her feet stumbled one over the other; and she stood above the lady's head and spake to her, saying: ‘Awake, Penelope, dear child, that thou mayest see with thine own eyes that which thou desirest day by day. Odysseus hath come, and hath got him to his own house, though late hath he come, and hath slain the proud wooers that troubled his house, and devomed his substance, and oppressed his child.’

Then wise Penelope answered her: ‘Dear nurse, the gods have made thee distraught, the gods that can make foolish even the wisdom of the wise, and that stablish the simple in understanding. They it is that have marred thy reason, though heretofore thou hadst a prudent heart. Why dost thou mock me, who have a spirit full of sorrow, to speak these wild words, and rousest me out of sweet slumber, that had bound me and overshadowed mine eyelids?

Won't accept travelstained Ul. Red
[Penelope] sat long in silence, and amazement came upon her soul, and now she would look upon him steadfastly with her eyes, and now again she knew him not, for that he was clad in vile raiment. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 379
Penelope: sector 4(al)
Music & dance
And Odysseus of many counsels answered him saying: ‘Yea now, I will tell on what wise methinks it is best. First, go ye to the bath and array you in your doublets, and bid the maidens in the chambers to take to them their garments. Then let the divine minstrel, with his loud lyre in hand, lead off for us the measure of the mirthful dance. So shall any man that hears the sound from without, whether a wayfarer or one of those that dwell around, say that it is a wedding feast. And thus the slaughter of the wooers shall not be noised abroad through the town before we go forth to our well-wooded farmland. Thereafter shall we consider what gainful counsel the Olympian may vouchsafe us.’ Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 380

Meanwhile, the house-dame Eurynome had bathed the great-hearted Odysseus within his house, and anointed him with olive-oil, and cast about him a goodly mantle and a doublet. Moreover Athene shed great beauty from his head downwards, and made him greater and more mighty to behold, and from his head caused deep curling locks to flow, like the hyacinth flower. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 381
Penelope: sector 4(an)
〃 threats to sleep alone Blue
[Odysseus:] ‘Strange lady, surely to thee above all womankind the Olympians have given a heart that cannot be softened. No other woman in the world would harden her heart to stand thus aloof from her husband, who after much travail and sore had come to her, in the twentieth year, to his own country. Nay come, nurse, strew a bed for me to lie all alone, for assuredly her spirit within her is as iron.’ Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 381
Note: Cf. UN4 (NLI.5A):034(as).
Penelope: sector 4(ao)
Lampus & Phaeton dawnstars stayed in E, Nox in W.
And now would the rosy-fingered Dawn have risen upon their weeping, but the goddess, grey-eyed Athene, had other thoughts. The night she held long in the utmost West, and on the other side she stayed the golden-throned Dawn by the stream Oceanus, and suffered her not to harness the swift-footed steeds that bear light to men, Lampus and Phaethon, the steeds ever young, that bring the morning.

Pen, reasons for chastity he might b- Blue
The fair lady [Penelope] spoke of all that she had endured in the halls at the sight of the ruinous throng of wooers, who for her sake slew many cattle, kine and goodly sheep; and many a cask of wine was broached. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 385
Penelope: sector 4(aq)
Calypso never won his heart Blue
And how he came to the isle Ogygia, and to the nymph Calypso, who kept him there in her hollow caves, longing to have him for her lord, and nurtured him and said that she would make him never to know death or age all his days yet she never won his heart within his breast. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 386
Penelope: sector 4(ar)
Ul. tale - Nausikaa
Next how with great toil he came to the Phaeacians, who gave him all worship heartily, as to a god, and sent him with a; ship to his own dear country, with gifts of bronze, and of gold, and raiment in plenty. This was the last word of the tale, when sweet sleep came speedily upon him, sleep that loosens the limbs of men, unknitting the cares of his soul. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 386f
Note: Odysseus makes no mention of Nausicaa in his telling Penelope of the Phaeacians.
Penelope: sector 4(as)
Pen remote. Big Four escape in dark
And this charge I lay on thee, lady, too wise though thou art to need it. Quickly will the bruit go forth with the rising sun, the bruit concerning the wooers, whom I slew in the halls. Wherefore ascend with the women thy handmaids into the upper chamber, and sit there and look on no man, nor ask any question. Therewith he girded on his shoulder his goodly armour, and roused Telemachus and the neatherd and the swineherd, and bade them all take weapons of war in their hands. So they were not disobedient to his word, but clad themselves in mail, and opened the doors and went forth, and Odysseus led the way. And now there was light over all the earth; but them Athene hid in night, and quickly conducted out of the town. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 387

Now Cyllenian Hermes called forth from the halls the souls of the wooers, and he held in his hand his wand that is fair and golden, wherewith he lulls the eyes of men, of whomso he will, while others again he even wakens out of sleep. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 388

Pen wishes to excite them but with her two maids Blue
  • Ulysses unlocated
Then wise Penelope answered her, saying: ‘[…] bid Autonoe and Hippodameia come to me, to stand by my side in the halls. Alone I will not go among men, for I am ashamed.’ […] Thereon the goddess, grey-eyed Athene, […] made her [Penelope] taller and greater to behold, and made her whiter than new-sawn ivory. Now when she had wrought thus, that fair goddess departed, and the whitearmed handmaidens came forth from the chamber and drew nigh with a sound of voices. Butcher & Lang, trans.

  • Ulysses unlocated
Note: Nora Barnacle and Mrs Santos, the wife of Trieste fruit-shop owner Nicolas Santos and a friend of the Joyce family. Joyce may intend both as models for Molly Bloom. Mrs Santos, apparently, remained indoors all day to preserve her complexion, and used face-cream lavishly [Ellmann 386]. She makes a suitable compound model for Molly (indoors all day) and Penelope.

With this word she [Penelope] went down from the shining upper chamber, not alone, for two handmaidens likewise bare her company. But when the fair lady had now come to the wooers, she stood by the pillar of the well-builded roof, holding her glistening tire before her face, and on either side of her stood a faithful handmaid. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 302
Penelope: sector 5(f)
Pen wheedles present Blue
Thus she [Penelope] spake, and the steadfast goodly Odysseus rejoiced because she drew from them gifts, and beguiled their souls with soothing words, while her heart was set on other things. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 304

Pen upbraids impure servant Blue
Thus he spake, and the wise Penelope heard him, and rebuked the handmaid, and spake and hailed her: ‘Thou reckless thing and unabashed, be sure thy great sin is not hidden from me, and thy blood shall be on thine own head for the same! […] Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 313
Note: Repeated at Sheet 18.019(ae). Bloom is suspected by Penelope (with justification) of carrying on with the maid while she is out shopping.

Speech of Achilles
So these were flocking round Achilles, and the spirit of Agamemnon, son of Atreus, drew nigh sorrowful; and about him were gathered all the other shades, as many as perished with him in the house of Aegisthus, and met their doom. Now the soul of the son of Peleus spake to him first, saying: ‘Son of Atreus, verily we deemed that thou above all other heroes wast evermore dear to Zeus, whose joy is in the thunder, seeing that thou wast lord over warriors, many and mighty men, in the land of the Trojans where we Achaeans suffered affliction. But lo, thee too was deadly doom to visit early, the doom that none avoids of all men born. Ah, would that in the fulness of thy princely honour, thou hadst met death and fate in the land of the Trojans! So would all the Achaean host have builded thee a barrow, yea and for thy son thou wouldst have won great glory in the aftertime. But now it has been decreed for thee to perish by a most pitiful death.’ Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 388
Penelope: sector 6(b)
funeral of Ach at sea, his Thetis
Then the soul of the son of Atreus answered, and spake: ‘Happy art thou son of Peleus, godlike Achilles, that didst die in Troy-land far from Argos, and about thee fell others, the best of the sons of Trojans and Achaeans, fighting for thy body; but thou in the whirl of dust layest mighty and mightily fallen, forgetful of thy chivalry. And we strove the livelong day, nor would we ever have ceased from the fight, if Zeus had not stayed us with a tempest. Anon when we had borne thee to the ships from out of the battle, we laid thee on a bier and washed thy fair flesh clean with warm water and unguents, and around thee the Danaans shed many a hot tear and shore their hair.

Penelope: sector 6(c)
18 dys mourning,
Thus for seventeen days and nights continually did we all bewail thee, immortal gods and mortal men. On the eighteenth day we gave thy body to the flames, and many well-fatted sheep we slew around thee, and kine of shambling gait. […] such glorious prizes did the goddess set there to honour thee, even Thetis, the silver-footed; for very dear wert thou to the gods. Thus not even in death hast thou lost thy name, but to thee shall there be a fair renown for ever among all men, Achilles. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 390
Penelope: sector 6(d)
games high tomb on peaks
[When all was consumed save the white bones, Achilles' remains were placed in a pot along with the bones of Patroclus, but not with the dust of Antilochus, and the urn was buried under a great tomb ‘high on the jutting headland over wide Hellespont’ that it might be seen from the grey sea by sailors then and thereafter and marvelled at.
The mother of Achilles asks for funereal games to be held with glorious prizes, gifts of the gods, even of Thetis, the silver-footed.]

Also this other wile she contrived in her heart.

Note: The words ‘she weaves a deathshroud for’ are not crossed through.
Penelope: sector 6(k)
Pen proud she is not Mrs Maybrick Blue
Then the ghost of the son of Atreus answered him: ‘Ah, happy son of Laertes, Odysseus of many devices, yea, for a wife most excellent hast thou gotten, so good was the wisdom of constant Penelope daughter of Icarius, that was duly mindful of Odysseus, her wedded lord. Wherefore the fame of her virtue shall never perish, but the immortals will make a gracious song in the ears of men on earth to the fame of constant Penelope. In far other wise did the daughter of Tyndareus devise ill deeds, and slay her wedded lord, and hateful shall the song of her be among men, and an evil repute hath she brought upon all womankind, even on the upright.’ Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 394
Note: See also UN5 (NLI.5B):013(b) and UN6 (NLI.4):020(dh). Molly thinks of and is shocked by the cold-bloodedness of Mrs Florence Elizabeth Chandler Maybrick (1862-1941), who was accused of poisoning her husband with arsenic. She was tried, convicted and sentenced to death on 7 August 1889. Her sentence was subsequently commuted (on 22 August) to life and she was ultimately released (on 25 January 1904).

Dream of 20 geese & eagle
[Penelope:] But come now, hear a dream of mine and tell me the interpretation thereof. Twenty geese I have in the house, that eat wheat, coming forth from the water, and I am gladdened at the sight. Now a great eagle of crooked beak swooped from the mountain, and brake all their necks and slew them; and they lay strewn in a heap in the halls, while he was borne aloft to the bright air. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 327

Then wise Penelope answered him: ‘Stranger, verily dreams are hard, and hard to be discerned; nor are all things therein fulfilled for men. Twain are the gates of shadowy dreams, the one is fashioned of horn and one of ivory. Such dreams as pass through the portals of sawn ivory are deceitful, and bear tidings that are unfulfilled. But the dreams that come forth through the gates of polished horn bring a true issue, whosoever of mortals beholds them. Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 328

Pen proposes 12 axe trial.
[Penelope:] Lo, even now draws nigh the morn of evil name, that is to sever me from the house of Odysseus, for now I am about to ordain for a trial those axes that he would set up in a row in his halls, like stays of oak in shipbuilding, twelve in all, and he would stand far apart and shoot his arrow through them all Butcher & Lang, trans.

Then sweet sleep left hold of Penelope, and she rubbed her cheeks with her hands, and said: ‘Surely soft slumber wrapped me round, most wretched though I be. Oh! that pure Artemis would give me so soft a death even now, that I might no more waste my life in sorrow of heart, and longing for the manifold excellence of my dear lord, for that he was foremost of the Achaeans.’ Butcher & Lang, trans.

Siege eating Dandelions
The captain who has recorded so faithfully the heroisms and the privations of the siege, says:
“Many officers and soldiers had families to support out of the pittance received from the victualling office. A soldier and his wife and three children would inevitably have been starved to death had not the generous contribution of his corps relieved his family. One woman actually died through want, and many were so enfeebled that it was not without great attention they recovered. Thistles, dandelions, and wild leeks were for some time the daily nourishment of numbers.”

Another account tells the same pitiful tale, with additional horrors:
“The ordinary means of sustenance were now almost exhausted, and roots and weeds, with thistles and wild onions, were greedily sought after and devoured by the famished inhabitants.

The most common necessaries of life were exorbitantly dear; bad ship biscuit, full of worms, was sold at a shilling a pound; flour, in not much better condition, at the same price; old dried peas, a shilling and fourpence; salt, half dirt, the sweepings of ships' bottoms and storehouses, at eight pence; old salt butter, at two shillings and sixpence; and English far|thing candles cost sixpence apiece. Fresh provisions commanded a still higher price: turkeys sold at three pounds twelve shillings, sucking pigs at two guineas, and a guinea was refused for a calf's pluck. Henry M.

As I had been twice in Egypt, I was greatly interested in the expedition up the Nile for the relief of Khartoum and the rescue of General Gordon, and had followed its progress in the English papers, where, along with the Black Watch and other famous troops, I had seen frequent mention of the South Staffordshire Regiment. As the expedition was for months the leading feature of the London illustrated papers, they were filled with pictures of the troops, engaged in every kind of service, sometimes looking more like sailors than soldiers, from which, however, they were ready, at the first alarm, to fall into ranks and march to battle.

In the hollow square in which it was drawn up were its mounted officers, waiting the arrival of the Governor, who presently rode upon the ground, with Major-General Walker, the Commander of the Infantry Brigade, at his side; followed by other officers, who took position in the rear, according to their rank. The band struck up “God save the Queen,” and the troops, wheeling into column, began the “march past,” moving with such firm and even tread that it seemed as if the regiment had but one body and one soul.

Indeed, if you should happen to be sauntering on the Alameda just at evening, as the sunset-gun is fired, and should look upward to see the smoke curling away, you might see above it a gathering of black clouds—the sure sign of the coming of the terrible East wind known as the “Levanter”; and if at the same moment the after-glow of the dying day should touch a group of soldiers standing on the mountain's crest (where colors could be clearly distinguished even if figures were confused), it might seem as if that last gleam under the shadow of the clouds were itself the red cross of England soaring against a dark and stormy sky.

This was the brilliant side of war: pity that there should be another side! But the next day, walking near the barracks, I met a company with reversed arms bearing the body of a comrade to the grave. There was no funeral pomp, no waving plumes nor roll of muffled drums: for it was only a common soldier, who might have fallen on any field, and be buried where he fell, with not a stone to mark his resting-place. But for all that, he may have been a true hero; for it is such as he, the unknown brave, who have fought all the battles and gained all the victories of the world. Henry M.

As the house of the Major General stands on the Line-Wall, it is close to the enormous batteries in the casemates below, (while one of the hundred-ton guns is mounted near the Alameda, quite “within speaking distance,”) and must be rudely rocked by the thunder which shakes even the solid ground like an earthquake. “What do you do at such a time?” I asked of the ladies of the family, to which they answered gayly, “Oh, we don't mind it.” They took good care, however, to take down their mirrors, and to lay away their glass and china, lest they should be shattered in pieces. Then they threw open their windows, and let the explosion come. Henry M. Field, Gibralter (1888), p 60f

Strolling through the town it seemed to us (perhaps it was only imagination) that there was a sullen look in the faces of the people; that they did not regard Englishmen, or those speaking the English tongue, with special affection.

The exact figures of this Armstrong Gun are: Weight, 101.2 tons. Length, 32.65 feet. Length of bore, 30.25 feet. Diameter of bore, 17.72 inches. Length of charge of powder, 5 feet. Weight of charge, 450 pounds. Weight of shot, 2,000 pounds. Velocity at the muzzle, 1,548 feet per second. At such velocity, a ball of such weight would have a “smashing effect” of 33.230 “foot-tons,” and would penetrate 24.9 inches of wrought iron. Range, when fired at the highest elevation, over 8 miles.

But these are not the whole of its defences they are only the beginning. There are batteries in the rear of the town, as well as in front, that can be fired over the tops of the houses, so that, if an enemy were to effect a landing he would have to fight his way at every step. As you climb the Rock, it fairly bristles with guns. You cannot turn to the right or the left without seeing these open-mouthed monsters, and looking into their murderous throats.

Besides the garrison, and the English or Spanish residents of Gibraltar, the town has a floating population as motley in race and color as can be found in any city on the Mediterranean.

The order is published in the Chronicle, a little sheet which appears every morning, and lest it might not reach the eyes of all, messengers are sent to every house to give due warning, so that nervous people can get out of the way; but the inhabitants generally, being used to it, take no other precaution than to open their windows, which might otherwise be broken by the violence of the concussion. Lord Gifford, soldier as he is, said, “It is awful,” pointing to the ceiling over his head, which had been cracked in many places so as to be in danger of falling, by the tremendous jar. He told me how one house had been so knocked to pieces that a piece of timber had fallen, nearly killing an officer. Henry M. Field, Gibralter (1888), p 27f

red & blue (artillery)
The presence of so large a body of troops in Gibraltar gives a constant animation to its streets, which are alive with red}-coats and blue-coats, the latter being the uniform of the artillery. Henry M. Field, Gibralter (1888), p 30
Penelope: sector 16(cb)
Fife & drum company
Almost every hour a company passes up the street, and never do I hear the “tramp, tramp,” keeping time to the fife and drum, that I do not rush to the balcony to see the sight, and hear the sounds which stir even my peaceful breast. Henry M. Field, Gibralter (1888), p 31
Penelope: sector 16(cd)
Squad of buglers / parading / answers
There is nothing that stirs me quite so much as the bugle. Twice a day it startles us with its piercing blast, as it follows instantly the gun-fire at sunrise and sunset. But this does not thrill me as when I hear it blown on some far-off height, and dying away in a valley below, or answered back from a yet more distant point, like a mountain echo. One morning I was taking a walk to Europa Point, and as the path leads upward I came upon several squads of buglers (I counted a dozen men in one of them) practising their “calls” Henry M. Field, Gibralter (1888), p 31

Penelope: sector 19(a)
what is hers — not hers & his Blue
  • Ulysses unlocated
A proud and shy instinct turns her mind away from the loosening of her bound-up hair — however sweet or longed for or inevitable and she embraces that which is hers alone and not hers and his also — happy distant dancing days, distant, gone for ever, dead or killed? James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 27f
Note: Copied from Sheet 18.008(c)
Penelope: sector 19(b)

Penelope: sector 19(c)
Jesus no wife & sister or mistress
[F]or nearly two thousand years the women of Christendom have prayed to and kissed the naked image of one who had neither wife nor mistress nor sister and would scarely have been associated with his mother had it not been that the Italian Church discovered, with its infallible practical instinct, the rich possibilities of the figure of the Madonna. James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 30
Penelope: sector 19(d)
Emily Lyons goes: she cries Blue
It is the quay of Galway harbour and a bright morning. The emigrant ship is going away and Emily [Lyons], her dark friend, stands on deck going out to America. They |akiss anda| cry bitterly (JJA 11:32) James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 32
Note: Repeated Sheet 18.008(b). Emily Lyons was a friend of Nora Barnacle when she was a girl.
Penelope: sector 19(e)
~ brave to go alone
The friend is older, stronger, can travel alone, braver, a prophecy of a later dark male. James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 37

present of buttoned boots Not cancelled
Her grandmother consoles her, gives her a new clean pinafore to wear and buttoned boots, a present from her uncle, and nice bread and butter to eat and a big fire to sit down to. James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 33
Penelope: sector 19(h)
feels vaguely forgotten cares Blue
The boots suggest their giver, her uncle, and she feels vaguely the forgotten cares and affections [for those] among [whom] she grew up. James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 35
Note: Copied from Sheet 18.007(aa).
Penelope: sector 19(i)
her girlself is gone Blue
No thought of a more recent admiration, which is strong even to the point of being fetichism and has been well observed by her, crosses her mind now. The boots suggest their giver, her uncle, and she feels vaguely the forgotten cares and affections [for those] among [whom] she grew up. Kindly, not because they were kind to her but because they were kind to her girlself which is now gone. James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 34f.
Penelope: sector 19(j)
prefer child of Boylan by other woman Blue
Bertha is reluctant to give the hospitality of her womb to Robert's seed. For this reason she would like more a child of his by another woman than a child of him by her. James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 45
Note: Copied from Sheet 18.007(ai)
Penelope: sector 19(k)
fuck - secrets of flesh
Would she allow her lust to carry her so far as to receive his emission of seed in any other opening of the body where it could not be acted upon, when once emitted, by the forces of her secret flesh? James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 47
Penelope: sector 19(l)
her mind an earth mist objects loom Blue
[Bertha's] mind is a grey seamist amid which common objects — hillsides, the masts of ships and barren islands — loom with strange and yet recognisable outlines. James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 48
Note: ‘her mind an’ not crossed through
Penelope: sector 19(m)
Cdn't he go & fuck Mrs Breen? Blue
Richard, unfitted for adulterous intercourse with the wives of his friends because it would involve a great deal of pretence on his part rather than because he is convinced of any dishonourableness in it, wishes, it seems, to feel the thrill of adultery vicariously and to possess a bound woman Bertha through the organ of his friend. James Joyce, notes for Exiles (ca. 1913), p. 50f.

Thus he spake, and the wise Penelope heard him, and rebuked the handmaid, and spake and hailed her: ‘Thou reckless thing and unabashed, be sure thy great sin is not hidden from me, and thy blood shall be on thine own head for the same! […] Butcher & Lang, trans. The Odyssey Of Homer (1906), 313
