Note: From the handicaps as given, and assuming the absence of J.J. Comyn, the true-to-life order of the onset of the pursuit as described in “Wandering Rocks” (lines 1258-60) should have been: F. Stevenson, C. Adderley, W.C. Huggard, M.C. Greene, J.B. Jones, G.N. Morphy, C. Scaife and H. Thrift. It may be a coincidence but, on the (microfilmed) copy in the National Library of Ireland that we consulted, there is a mark (bitched type?) just above the ‘n’ of ‘Jones’ which makes it appear to the casual or, perhaps, weak eye as ‘Joffes’, which, spoken aloud, may have occasioned Mr Budgen's ‘Joffs’, later altered by Joyce to ‘Jeffs’.

Hel Wal Ak Lub Mor Ma
‘Ancient Intuitions’ … I can imagine them [‘a group of the ancestors lit up from within’] looking up at the fire in the sky, and calling out “El” if it was the light they adored, or if they rejoiced in the heat and light together they would name it “Hel.” Or if they saw death, and felt it as the stillness or ending of motion [end of 129] or breath, they would say “Mor.” Or if the fire acting on the water made it boil, they would instinctively combine the sound equivalents of water and fire, and “Wal” would be the symbol. If the fire of life was kindled in the body to generate its kind, the sound symbol would be “Lub.” When the axe was used to cut, its hardness would prompt the use of the hard or metallic affinity in sound, and “Ak” would be to cut or pierce. One extension of meaning after another would rapidly increase the wealth of significance, and recombinations of roots the power of expression. The root “M” with its sense of finality would suggest “Mi” to diminish, and as to measure a thing is to go to its ends, “Ma” would also mean to measure, and as to think a thing is to measure it, “Ma” would also come to be associated with thinking.

Did you hear my head snap?
In further illustration of the waking stage, showing how similar it was in 1906 to what it is now, and as a further description of the curious “snap” sensation, I subjoin an extract from the termination of a sitting with Henry James, Junior and Mr. Dorr in America in 1906.

I thought you were a stranger.
    Well, did you hear my head snap?
H. J. Jr. No.
    Didn't hear it? It is a funny sound. Don't you hear it at all? Sounds like wheels clicking together and then snaps. There it is again.
G.B.D. Now you are really back.

Spurgeon went to heaven 11.5 Sunday night. Not entered yet.
Mr. Spurgeon frequently gave expression to his dislike and mistrust of the antics of the Salvation Army. He was far from prim himself, but he held that if people were not “won over to Christ” by preaching, it was idle to bait the hook with mere sensationalism. Yet by a strange irony his closest friends, in announcing his death to his flock, actually improved on the extravagance of the Salvationists. Here is a copy of the telegram that was affixed to the rails of the Metropolitan Tabernacle the morning after his decease:

Mentone, 11.50. / Spurgeon's Tabernacle, London.

Our beloved pastor entered heaven 11.5 Sunday night.

How could his soul enter heaven at the very same moment? Is heaven in the atmosphere? He who asserts it is a very bold speculator. Is it out in the ether? If so, where? And how is it our telescopes cannot detect it? If heaven is a place, as it must be if it exists at all, it cannot very well be within the astronomical universe. Now the farthest stars are inconceivably remote. Our sun is more than 90,000,000 miles distant, and Sirius is more than 200,000 times farther off than the sun. There are stars so distant that their light takes more than a thousand years to reach us, and light travels at the rate of nearly two hundred thousands miles per second! It is difficult to imagine Spurgeon's soul travelling faster than that; and if heaven is somewhere out in the vast void, beyond the sweep of telescopes or the register of the camera, Spurgeon's soul has so far not "entered heaven" that its journey thither is only just begun.

Who will go drive with Fergus now, and pierce the deep wood's woven shade, the shadows of the woods, and the white breast of the dim sea
Note: W.B. Yeats, “Who Goes with Fergus”, from The Rose (1893).

Who will go drive with Fergus now,
And pierce the deep wood's woven shade
,
And dance upon the level shore?
Young man, lift up your russet brow,
And lift your tender eyelids, maid,
And brood on hopes and fear no more.

And no more turn aside and brood
Upon love's bitter mystery;
For Fergus rules the brazen cars,
And rules the shadows of the wood,
And the white breast of the dim sea

And all dishevelled wandering stars.

He entered the tabernacle at great speed, leaped at a bound to the top of the table on the stage, smacked his hands together with a report like a rifle shot and raised his voice to a shriek, crying, “Come on, you forces of evil in Philadelphia, that have made the Church a doormat to wipe your dirty feet upon, come on, you triple extract of infamy, come on, you assassins of character, come on, you defamers of God and enemies of His Church; come on, you bull-necked, beetle-browed, hog-jowled, peanut-brained, weasel-eyed, four flushers of false alarms and excess baggage!

taking hold of left breast, arm forms square: the sign and dueguard of fellowcraft
The sign is given by taking hold of the left breast, with the right hand, as though you intended to tear out a piece of it, then draw your hand with the fingers partly clenched, from the left to the right side, with some quickness, and dropping it down by your side. The due-guard is given by raising the left arm until that part of it between the elbow and shoulder is perfectly horizontal; and raising the rest of the arm in a vertical position, so that part of the arm below the elbow, and that part above it forms a square. This is the due-guard. The two are always given together by Masons, and are called the sign and due-guard of a fellow craft: they would not be recognized by a Mason, if given separately.

pass of Ephraim: Shibboleth
The Ephraimites being highly incensed for not being called to fight and share in the rich spoils of the Amonitish war, assembled a mighty army and passed over the river Jordan to give Jephtha battle; but he being apprized of their approach, called together the men of Israel and gave them battle, and put them to flight; and, to make his victory more complete, he ordered guards to be placed on the different passes on the banks of the river Jordan, and commanded, if the Ephraimites passed that way, they should pronounce the word Shibboleth; but they, being of a different tribe, pronounced it Sibboleth, which trifling defect proved them spies, and cost them their lives; and there fell that day, at the different passes on the banks of the river Jordan, forty and two thousand.

The king of Persia, desirous of perpetuating a remembrance of those interesting events which had occasioned a renewal of the friendship which had formerly subsisted between himself and Zerubbabel, instituted, on this occasion, a new order, and called it ‘the order of knights of the east.’ They afterwards assumed the title of ‘knights of the eagle.’ In France they were known as ‘knights of the sword;’ and in Palestine, as ‘knights of the red cross.’ They were afterwards incorporated with the knight templars.

S. Barbara
S. BARBARA, A.D. 303, Dec. 4. Patron saint of Ferrara and Mantua, arms, armourers, and fortifications, and against thunder and lightning. S. Barbara was the only daughter of Dioscorus, a noble of Heliopolis. Her father loved her so much, that fearing he should lose her by marriage, he hid her from the eyes of man in a high tower. Here she spent her time in thought and study, which brought her to the conclusion that her father's gods could not be the true ones. Hearing of the fame of Origen she wrote to him for instruction, and he sent her one of his disciples in the disguise of a physician, who converted and baptized her. One day, after this, she told the workmen engaged on her tower to build three windows, instead of two as they had planned, saying to her father that she desired it because it was through three windows (the Trinity) that the soul received light. Thus he saw she was a Christian, and filled with rage would have killed her, but she escaped to the top of her tower, and was carried thence by angels. A shepherd showed Dioscorus her place of concealment, whence he dragged her by the hair, and finding imprisonment and ill-treatment powerless to move her, he gave her up to the proconsul. Under his orders she suffered cruel tortures; but as all was in vain, her father carried her off to a mountain and beheaded her himself. As he was descending the mountain a great storm of thunder and lightning arose, and utterly consumed him. E. A. Greene, Saints and Their Symbols (1913), 44

She was very beautiful, and her father was anxious she should marry a powerful chief, but she utterly refused, retreating for solitude to a grove of oaks once sacred to idol-worship. Here she worked so many miracles that crowds gathered round her, and thus she formed the convent of Kildare, (or “place of the oak”), which afterwards became so celebrated. E. A.

S. FELIX DE CANTALICE, A.D. 1587, May 8, was born in Umbria of very poor parents. Having entered a Capuchin monastery, he was afterwards sent to the Capuccini at Rome, where he was appointed to beg for the daily food of the brotherhood. There had never before been known such plenty as he brought in; and it is related that when he was begging one stormy night, a radiant child met him, who gave him a loaf of bread, and blessing him vanished. S. Felix spent forty-five years at the Capuccini, where his life was an example of devotion and self-denial. He was the first saint of the Capuchin order. E. A.

SS. Gervasisus and Protasius
SS. GERVASIUS and PROTASIUS, A.D. 69, June 19, were twin brothers, who suffered martyrdom at Milan at the same time as SS. Nazarus and Celsus, S. Gervasius being beaten to death with loaded scourges, and S. Protasius beheaded. Their bodies had been buried by one of the Christians in his garden, and the site, having been forgotten, the Church of SS. Nabor and Felix had been built over it. Here, 300 years later, S. Ambrose was praying, being at that time filled with the desire to obtain some relics for a new church he had just built, when he had a vision of SS. Peter and Paul, leading two young men clothed in white, and he was told they were the martyrs Gervasius and Protasius, and that their bodies reposed beneath the church. Search having been made, two gigantic bodies were found, with the heads severed, and in the tomb a writing revealing their history. These relics were carried in grand procession, healing all who touched them, to the new church, which was dedicated in the names of SS. Gervasius and Protasius. But later S. Ambrose himself was buried there, and it thenceforward took his name, and is still famous as S. Ambrogio Maggiore. E. A. Greene, Saints and Their Symbols (1913), 94

S. Herman-Joseph
S. HERMAN-JOSEPH, A.D. 1236, April 7, was born at Cologne, of very poor parents. Once, while praying before an image of the Blessed Virgin, he longed to make her an offering, and having nothing but an apple, which was all he had for his dinner, he offered that to her in trustful love. This was so pleasing to her, that she took the apple and gave it to the Infant Christ in her arms, and both smiled upon Herman. Herman afterwards entered the Order of the Premonstratesians, and the Blessed Virgin favoured him with many visions, in one of which she put a ring on his finger and called him her espoused, and in consequence of this he received the second name of Joseph.

Isidore wrapt in prayer, while two angels were ploughing for him; after which he treated him with greater respect. Another day, when his master thirsted, S. Isidore struck a rock with his ox goad, and water immediately flowed from it. He restored to life his master's child who had fallen into a well, and performed various other miracles. E. A.

S. Ives of Brittany
S. IVES, or Yvo of Bretagne, A.D. 1303, May 19, patron saint of lawyers, was of a noble Breton family, and from a child evinced a saintly disposition. He studied the law in Paris, living as strictly as a hermit, and devoting much of his time to prayer and charity. On his return to Brittany the Bishop of Treguier appointed him judge advocate of his diocese. He pleaded for widows and orphans gratuitously, and often reconciled enemies by his exhortations, and prevented their appealing to the law. At length he became a priest, but still used his legal knowledge for the aid of the poor and ignorant. The fatigue of his many good works and self-mortification finally so wore him out that he died.

S. JOHN NEPOMUC, A.D. 1393, May 16. Patron saint of silence, and against slander, of bridges and running water, and protector of the Order of the Jesuits. He was confessor to the wife of Wenceslaus IV., Emperor of Germany, a bad and cruel man, who endeavoured to extract from him by bribes and threats the confessions of the Empress. Furious at finding all his endeavours vain, the Emperor threw S. John into a dungeon and tortured him. The Empress, deeply distressed, at length succeeded in obtaining his release, and tended his wounds with her own hands. He returned for a short time to the court, but the Emperor soon repeated his demand, and, mad with rage at the silence of the saint, ordered his guards to throw him from a bridge into the river Moldau. As he sank five stars in the form of a crown appeared over the spot. When the Emperor saw it he fled in terror from his palace to the fortress of Carlstein; but the empress found the body, and buried it with all honour in the Church of the Holy Cross. E. A.

S. Julian Hospitator
S. JULIAN HOSPITATOR, A.D. 313, Jan. 9, patron saint of travellers, boatmen, and wandering minstrels, was a rich count, who lived in great state, and spent his time in feasting and hunting. One day, after he had pursued a deer for a great distance, it turned and spoke to him, saying, “Thou who pursuest me to death shalt cause the death of thy father and mother.” Horrified at this prophecy, and hoping to prevent the possibility of its fulfilment, he would not return home, but at once rode away to another country. Here be took service under the king, and greatly distinguished himself. He also married and lived happily, quite forgetting the terrible prophecy. But meantime his parents, distressed at his loss, did not cease to search for him, and at length came to his castle. Julian, was absent at the time, but his wife, hearing who they were, gave them welcome and put them in her own chamber to rest. When he returned he went straight to his chamber, and, not recognizing his parents at once, by a fatal mistake slew them both in a fit of rage. When he learnt what he had done he was stupefied with horror, but at length, rousing himself, determined to spend the rest of his life in devotion to God's service, that so he might be forgiven his fearful sin. He and his wife left that country, and established themselves in a cell near a great river, which was so often swollen by mountain torrents that many were drowned in endeavouring to cross it. Here he founded a hospital, and occupied himself with tending the sick and taking all who asked him across the river. One night, while a storm was raging, he heard a voice calling to him, and going out he found a leprous youth lying on the opposite shore. Julian ferried him across, and, as he seemed almost dying from cold and exhaustion, laid him on his own bed and watched him tenderly. Just as morning dawned a light shone from the leper's face, and he rose up, saying, “Julian, the Lord hath sent me to thee, for thy penitence is accepted, and thy rest is at hand”, and then vanished from their sight. Julian and his wife fell down and praised God for His mercy, and soon afterwards they both died peacefully. E. A. Greene, Saints and Their Symbols (1913), 119f

S. Martha of Bethany
S. MARTHA of Bethany, A.D. 84, July 29. Patron saint of cooks and housewives. The old legends always regard Mary Magdalene as identical with Mary of Bethany, and according to them it was Martha who guided her sinning sister to the feet of Christ. After the Ascension, when the whole family were driven to Marseilles (see the legend of S. MARY MAGDALENE), Martha taught the people in the neighbourhood of Aix. Now at that time a terrible dragon, called the “Tarasque,” lived in the River Rhone, and ravaged all the country. But when Martha came there she completely overcame him, by sprinkling him with holy water, and bound him fast by her girdle, so that the people were able to approach and slay him. Afterwards a church was built on the spot, and the city of Tarascon rose around it. She spent her whole life in good works, and the honour has been assigned to her of being the first to found a religious community of women. She died peacefully, surrounded by her own people. E. A.

S. Mary of Egypt
S. MARY of Egypt, A.D. 433, April 2, was a native of Alexandria, who even exceeded Mary Magdalene in the wickedness of her life. After nearly twenty years of complete abandonment to sin, she felt a sudden desire to join a large company whom she beheld embarking for Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of the Cross. She accompanied them on their journey, but when she attempted, like them, to enter the Church of Jerusalem, some invisible power held her back, and it was impossible for her to cross the threshold. Then she knew it was by reason of her sins, and was struck with remorse and horror at her former evil life. She prayed earnestly, and humbled herself before God, and at last was enabled to enter the church on her knees. Full of repentance she determined to spend the rest of her life in solitude and penance; and taking with her nothing but three loaves, she went forth into the desert. Here she dwelt alone for forty-seven years, her loaves by a miracle never failing, and her hair growing long enough to be a covering when her garments dropped to pieces. At length she was discovered by an aged priest, named Zosimus, whom she begged to keep silence about her, and to return at the end of a year to administer the last sacraments to her before her death. He complied with her request, but on his return found himself unable to cross the Jordan, and Mary was miraculously brought over it to come to him. Having received the Blessed Sacrament, and absolution from all her sins, she once more desired Zosimus to depart for a year. On his second return he found her lying dead, with a request that he would bury her written on the sand near her. As he was too old to accomplish this alone, a lion came out of the desert and helped him. Then Zosimus went back and spread abroad the story of God's mercy to the penitent woman. E. A.

S. Phocas of Sinope
S. PHOCAS, A.D. 303, July 3. Patron saint of gardens and gardeners, lived outside the gate of the city of Sinope, in Pontus, and supported himself on the produce of his garden, giving all beyond absolute necessities to the poor, and entertaining all homeless travellers who came to him. One night two strangers asked for admittance, and he received them most hospitably, setting before them the best he could provide. Then they told him that they were in search of a certain Phocas, who had been denounced as a Christian, and that wherever they found him they were to put him to death. Phocas said nothing, but having shown them their bedchamber, went out and dug a grave among the flowers in his garden. The next morning he told his guests that he was the Phocas they sought. At first they recoiled from shedding the blood of their host; but when he declared himself ready and willing to die for God, they beheaded him on the edge of the grave he had himself dug, and buried him there.

S. Thomas Aquinas
S. THOMAS AQUINAS, A.D. 1274, March 7. This saint, known as the “Angelical Doctor,” was born in Calabria, of a noble family, and was related to many of the crowned heads of Europe. He was early noted for his piety, and gentleness and sweetness of temper, and when only seventeen entered the Dominican Order at Naples. His family were so enraged at this step that they seized and carried him home; but his resolution was not to be moved, and he converted his two sisters, who helped him to escape. He returned at once to his convent, where he concealed his great learning from a sense of humility, so that it was long unsuspected, and he was even nicknamed “Bos,” the ox, for his apparent dulness. However, he gradually gained a reputation, which steadily increased, and he became the greatest theologian of his age. Various high offices were offered him, but he refused them all. He died at the Cistercian convent of Fossa-Nova, spending his last strength in an effort to finish his Commentary on the Song of Solomon. His theological works are very numerous, and of great value.

S. Ursula and the eleven thousand virgins
S. URSULA AND THE ELEVEN THOUSAND VIRGINS, A.D. 237, or 383, or 451, Oct 21. S. Ursula is the patron saint of girls, especially schoolgirls, and women occupied in the education of their own sex. She was the daughter of the King of Brittany, and the fame of her beauty and learning spread so far that many princes desired to marry her; but she rejected them all. Among her suitors was Conon, son of the King of Britain, to whom she sent a message that under three conditions only would she accept him; first, that he must be baptized; secondly, that he would give her as companions ten of the noblest ladies of his kingdom, each with a thousand virgins as attendants, and a thousand also for herself; thirdly, that they should spend three years in visiting sacred shrines. She thought that her demand was impossible, or, if by any means it could be fulfilled, eleven thousand virgins would be saved. The messengers took back such an account of Ursula's wisdom and beauty, that Conon did not rest till he had gathered together eleven thousand virgins, and brought them to Brittany. Then S. Ursula assembled them in a green meadow, and there preached to them so eloquently, that they were all converted, and received baptism in a stream flowing near. A large fleet of ships was prepared to take the virgins on their voyage. Accounts differ as to whether Conon accompanied them or remained in Brittany, but many bishops went with them. They had no sailors, the virgins themselves managing the vessels with the greatest skill; yet by some mistake they sailed north instead of south, and were driven up the Rhine as far as Cologne. Here it was revealed to S. Ursula that she and her companions should suffer martyrdom on that spot, and they all rejoiced greatly. They then proceeded up the river, and having crossed the Alps by the miraculous aid of angels, at length reached Rome. The Pope Cyriacus was much amazed at beholding such a company; but, when Ursula explained the cause of their coming and implored his blessing, he received them gladly. Now Conon, impatient at the absence of his bride, had followed her by a different route, and arrived in Rome the same day. He knelt with Ursula before the Pope, and received baptism at his hands, after which he no longer desired to marry her, but only to share her crown of martyrdom. Having performed their devotions at the shrine of SS. Peter and Paul, the whole company set out to return home. But at Cologne a tribe of Huns, instigated by some wicked officers, who feared that the whole Roman army in Germany would become converted, fell upon the virgins and slew them all. They met their fate without resistance, and rejoicing at their martyrdom. The King of the Huns was greatly struck by the noble bearing of S. Ursula, and wished to make her his wife; but she rejected him with scorn. This so enraged the barbarian that he bent his bow and pierced her with three arrows. Thus she died, and her spirit was born by angels to heaven. E. A. Greene, Saints and Their Symbols (1913), 180f

And they came to Lacedaemon lying low among the caverned hills, and drave to the dwelling of the renowned Menelaus. Him they found giving a feast in his house to many friends of his kin, a feast for the wedding of his noble son and daughter. His daughter [Hermione] he was sending to the son of Achilles […] And for his son he was bringing to his home the daughter of Alector out of Sparta, for his well-beloved son, strong Megapenthes*, born of a slavewoman […] So they were making merry […] and among them a divine minstrel was singing to the lyre, and as he began the song two tumblers in the company whirled through the midst of them.

Meanwhile these twain, the hero Telemachus and the splendid son of Nestor, made halt at the entry of the gate, they and their horses. And the lord Eteoneus came forth and saw them, the ready squire of renowned Menelaus; and he went through the palace to bear the tidingd to the shepherd of the people, and standing near spoke to him winged words:

‘Menelaus, fosterling of Zeus, here are two strangers, whosoever they be, two men like to the lineage of great Zeus. Say, shall we loose their swift horses from under the yoke, or send them onward to some other host who shall receive them kindly?’

Then in sore displeasure spake to him Menelaus of the fair hair: ‘Eteoneus son of Boethous, truly thou wert not a fool aforetime, but now for this once, like a child thou talkest folly. Surely ourselves ate much hospitable cheer of other men, ere we twain came hither, even if in time to come Zeus haply give us rest from affliction.’

So they went from the hall with torch in hand, and spread the beds, and the henchman led forth the guests. Thus they slept there in the outer gallery of the house, the hero Telemachus and the splendid son of Nestor.

And speak me no soft words in ruth or pity, but tell me plainly how thou didst get sight of him. Homer, The Odyssey, trans. Butcher & Lang (1900), IV, p.58

Menelaus is indignant about suitors
Then in heavy displeasure spake to him Menelaus of the fair hair: ‘Out upon them, for truly in the bed of a brave-hearted man were they minded to lie, very cravens as they are! […] Homer, The Odyssey, trans. Butcher & Lang (1900), IV, p.58

24 Prophesies U's return,
Even as when a hind hath couched her newborn fawns unweaned in a strong lion's lair, and searcheth out the knees and grassy hollows, seeking pasture, and afterward the lion cometh back to his bed, and sendeth forth unsightly death upon that pair, even so shall Odysseus send forth unsightly death upon the wooers.

tells of how / U threw Philomeleides
Would to our father Zeus and Athene and Apollo, would that in such might as when of old in stablished Lesbos he rose up and wrestled a match with Philomeleides and threw him mightily, and all the Achaeans rejoiced; would that in such strength Odysseus might consort with the wooers: then should they shall have swift fate, and bitter wedlock.

1. Eidothea & Menelaus
And now would all our corn have been spent, and likewise the strength of the men, except some goddess had taken pity on me and saved me, EidothS.eue, daughter of mighty Proteus, the ancient one of the sea. For most of all I moved her heart, when she met me wandering alone apart from my company […] Homer, The Odyssey, trans. Butcher & Lang (1900), IV, p.59

2. School of seals Blue
And around him [Proteus] the seals, the brood of the fair daughter of the brine, sleep all in a flock, stolen forth from the grey sea water, and bitter is the scent they breathe of the deeps of the salt sea. Homer, The Odyssey, trans. Butcher & Lang (1900), IV, p.61

3. Ambrosia
There would our ambush have been most terrible, for the deadly stench of the sea-bred seals distressed us sore: nay, who would lay him down by a beast of the sea? But herself she wrought deliverance, and devised a great comfort. She took ambrosia of a very sweet savour, and set it beneath each man's nostril, and did away with the stench of the beast.

4 Menelaus outwits Proteus
And at high day the ancient one came forth from out of the brine, and found his fatted seals […] and first among the sea-beasts he reckoned us, and guessed not that there was guile, and afterward he too laid him down. Then we rushed upon him with a cry, and cast our hands about him, nor did that ancient one forget his cunning. Now behold, at the first he turned into a bearded lion, and thereafter into a snake, and a pard, and a huge boar; then he took the shape of running water, and of a tall and flowering tree. We the while held him close with steadfast heart. But when now that ancient one of the magic arts was aweary, then at last he questioned me and spake unto me. Homer, The Odyssey, trans.

I am holden long time in this isle, neither can I find any issue therefrom, and my heart faileth within me. Howbeit, do thou tell me—for the gods know all things—which of the immortals it is that bindeth me here, and hath hindered me from my way; and declare as touching my returning, how I may go over the teeming deep.

6 Drowned Aias Blue
Aias in truth was smitten in the midst of his ships of the long oars. Poseidon at first brought him nigh to Gyrae, to the mighty rocks, and delivered him from the sea. And so would he have fled his doom, albeit hated by Athene, had he not let a proud word fall in the fatal darkening of his heart. He said that in the gods' despite he had escaped the great gulf of the sea; and Poseidon heard his loud boasting, and presently caught up his trident into his strong hands, and smote the rock Gyraean and cleft it in twain. And the one part abode in his place, but the other fell into the sea, the broken piece whereon Aias sat at the first, when his heart was darkened. And the rock bore him down into the vast and heaving deep; so there he perished when he had drunk of the salt sea water. Homer, The Odyssey, trans. Butcher & Lang (1900), IV, p.64

9. P[roteus] tells of U's ..
It is the son of Laertes, whose dwelling is in Ithaca; and I saw him in an island shedding bigs tears in the halls of the nymph Calypso, who holds him there perforce; so he may not come to his own country, for he has by him no ships with oars, and no companions to send him on his way over the broad back of the sea.

11. T speaks of poor I.
In Ithaca there are no wide courses, nor meadow land at all. It is a pasture-land of goats, and more pleasant in my sight than one that pastureth horses; for of the isles that lie and lean upon the sea, none are fit for the driving of horses, or rich in meadow land, and least of all is Ithaca.

12 Sleepless T Dream Ath
The son of Nestor truly was overcome with soft sleep, but sweet sleep gat not hold of Telemachus, but, through the night divine, careful thoughts for his father kept him wakeful. And grey-eyed Athene stood nigh him and spake to him […] Homer, The Odyssey, trans. Butcher & Lang (1900), XV, p.240
Note: Here Joyce ceases to follow the course of Homer's text. In order to continue the narration of the events taking place in Lacedemon, he jumps over the extended paralipsis (173 pages) covering the simultaneous events in Ithaca and then the further adventures of Ulysses. For Joyce, the basic unit is not the Homeric song, but the narrative episode, or the diegetic location.

13 Go to Swineherd
But when thou hast touched the nearest shore of Ithaca, send thy ship and all the company forward to the city, but for thy part seek first the swineherd who keeps thy swine, and is loyal to thee as of old. There do thou rest the night, and bid him go to the city to bear tidings of thy coming to the wise Penelope […]. Homer, The Odyssey, trans. Butcher & Lang (1900), XV, p.241

Menelaus, of the loud war cry, answered him: ‘[…] And if thou art minded to turn toward Hellas and mid Argos, wait till I too shall go with thee, and yoke thee horses and lead thee to the towns of men, and none shall send us empty away, but will give us some one thing to take with us, either a tripod of goodly bronze or a cauldron, or two mules or a golden chalice.’ Homer, The Odyssey, trans.

16 gifts Helen M
Menelaus, of the fair hair, spake to him saying:

‘Telemachus, may Zeus the thunderer, and the lord of Here, in very truth bring about thy return according to the desire of thy heart. And of the gifts, such as are treasures stored in my house, I will give thee the goodliest and greatest of price. I will give thee a mixing bowl beautifully wrought; it is all of silver and the lips thereof are finished with gold; it is the work of Hephaestus; and the hero Phaedimus the king of the Sidonians, gave it to me when his house sheltered me, on my coming thither. This cup I would give to thee.’

Therewith the hero Atrides set the double cup in his hands. And the strong Megapenthes bare the shining silver bowl and set it before him. And Helen, of the fair cheeks, came up, with the robe in her hands, and spake and hailed him:

‘Lo! I too give thee this gift, dear child, a memorial of the hands of Helen, against the day of thy desire, even of thy marriage. But meanwhile let it lie by thy mother in her chamber. And may joy go with thee to thy well-builded house, and thine own country.’
