What |6course parallel courses6| did Bloom and Stephen follow returning?
(3Starting united |6both6| at normal walking pace from Beresford (errPlace placeºerr) they followed in the order named3) Lower and Middle Gardiner streets and Mountjoy square, west(3. Then: then, at reduced pace3), |6each6| bearing left, Gardiner's place by an inadvertence as far as the farther corner of Temple street(3. Then|6, north6|: thenº, at reduced pace with interruptions of halt3), bearing right, Temple street, north, as far as Hardwicke place. |3Approaching, disparate, at relaxed walking pace3| (3They they3) crossed |6both6| the circus before George's church diametrically, the chord in any circle being less than the arc which it subtends.
Of what did |8they speak the duumvirate deliberate8| during their itinerary?
Music, literature, Ireland, Dublin, Paris, friendship, woman, (3prostitution,3) diet, the influence of gaslight or the light of arc and glowlamps on the growth of adjoining |7paraheliotropic7| trees, (3exposed corporation emergency dustbuckets,3) the Roman catholic church, |7ecclesiastical celibacy,7| |6the Irish nation,6| jesuit education, careers, the study of medicine, the past day,º |8the maleficent influence of the presabbath,8| Stephen's |6breakdown collapse6|.
Did Bloom discover (3common factors of3) similarity between their respective (3like and unlike3) reactions to experience?
Both were sensitive to artistic
impressions,º musical in preference to
pictorial. Both preferred a
continental to an insular manner of
life(3, a cisatlantic to a transatlantic place of residence3). Both indurated by early domestic training and an inherited tenacity of |7heterodox7| resistance professed their disbelief in many |7accepted religions orthodox religiousº7|, national, social and ethical doctrines. Both admitted the alternately stimulating and obtunding influence of heterosexual magnetism.
Were their views on some points divergent?
Stephen dissented openly from Bloom's views on the importance of dietary and civic selfhelp while Bloom dissented tacitly from Stephen's views on the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man in literature. |6Bloom |errassently assentedºerr| covertly to Stephen's rectification of the anachronism involved in assigning the date of the conversion of the Irish nation to christianity from druidism by Patrick son of Calpornus, son of Potitus, son of Odyssus, sent by pope Celestine I in the year 432 in the reign of Leary to the year |7288 2607| or thereabouts in the reign of Cormac MacArt |7(† 266 a.d.)7|,º suffocated by imperfect deglutition of aliment at Sletty and interred at Rossnaree.6| The collapse which Bloom ascribed to gastric inanition and certain chemical compounds of varying degrees of adulteration and alcoholic strength|3, accelerated by mental exertion and the velocity of rapid circular motion |ain a relaxing atmospherea|,3| Stephen attributed to the reapparition of a matutinal cloud |4(perceived by both |aat froma| two different points of observation, Sandycove and Dublin)º4| at first no bigger than a woman's hand.
Was there one point |6on which their views6| were equal and negative?
The influence of gaslight or electric light on the growth of adjoining |8paraheliotropic8| trees.
Had Bloom discussed similar subjects during nocturnal perambulations in the past?
In 1884 with Owen Goldberg and Cecil Turnbull
avenue and Leonard's corner and Leonard's corner and Synge street and
Synge street and Bloomfield
(errAvenue avenueºerr)3|. In 1885 with Percy Apjohn |3in the evenings|8,8| reclined against the wall between Gibraltar villa and Bloomfield house in Crumlin, barony of Uppercross3|. In 1886 occasionallyº with casual acquaintances |3|aand prospective purchasersa| on doorsteps, in front parlours, in |a|73(sup)r(sup)d third7| classa| railway carriages of suburban lines3|. In 1888 frequently with major Brian Tweedy and his daughter Miss Marion Tweedy, together and separately |3on the lounge in Matthew Dillon's house in Roundtown3|. Once in 1892 and once in 1893 with Julius |v3(Juda)v3|º Mastiansky|3, on both occasions in the parlour of his |6(Bloom's)6| house in Lombard street, west3|.
reflection concerning the irregular
sequence of dates
1884, 1885, 1886, 1888, 1892, 1893, 1904 did Bloom make before their arrival at their destination?
He reflected that the progressive extension of the field of persona individual development and experience was regressively accompanied by a restriction of the converse domain of interindividual relations.
As in what ways?
From inexistence to existence he came to many and was as one received: existence with existence he was with any as any with any: from existence to nonexistence gone he would be by all as none perceived.6|
What actionº did Bloom make on their arrival at their destination?
At the housesteps of |3the f 4th of the equidifferent uneven numbers,3| number 7 Eccles street|8,8| he |8put inserted8| his hand mechanically into the back pocket |6of his trousers6| to |8get obtain8| his latchkey.
Was it there?
It was in the corresponding pocket of the trousers which he had worn on the day but one preceding.
Why was he doubly irritated?
Because he had forgotten and because he remembered that he had reminded himself twice not to forget.
What |7were |8was were8|7| then the |7alternatives |8alternative alternativesº8|7| |3before the|8, premeditatedly (respectively) and inadvertently,8| keyless couple3|?
To enter or not to enter. To knock or not to knock.
|8His Bloom's8| decision?
A stratagem. |3Resting his feet on the dwarf wall,3| |3He he3| climbed over the area railings, compressed his hat on his head, grasped |3the lower parts of two rails two points at the lower union of rails and stiles3|, lowered his body gradually by its length of five feet nine inches and a half to within two feet ten inches of the area pavement|6',6'|º and allowed his body to move freely in space by separating himself from the railings and crouching in preparation for the impact of the fall.
Did he fall?

Froedmanº, pharmaceutical chemist of 19
Frederick street, north, on the last feast of the Ascension, to wit, the twelfth day of May of the

Did he rise uninjured |3by concussion3|?
|3Regaining new stable

impact, raised the latch of the area door by
exertion of force |aat
and by3| leverage
first kind8| applied |ato its free arma| at its fulcrum3|,º |3entered gained |6retarded6| access to3| the kitchen through the |3subadjacent3| scullery, ignited a lucifer match by friction, set free inflammable coal gas by turning on the ventcock, lit a high flame which, by regulating, he reduced to quiescent candescence and lit finally a portable candle.
|3Where was Stephen meanwhile? What discrete succession of images did Stephen meanwhile perceive?3|
Reclined against the area railings he perceived through the transparent kitchen panes a man regulating a gasflame |6of 14 CP6|, a man lighting a candle |7of 1 CPº7|, a man removing in turn each of his two boots, a man leaving the kitchen holding a candleº.
Did the man reappear elsewhere?
After a lapse of four minutes the glimmer of his candle was discernible through the |6semitransparent6| |8semicircular8| glass fanlight over the halldoor. The halldoor turned gradually on its hinges. In the open space of the doorway the man reappeared without his hat, with his candle.
Did Stephen obey his sign?
Yes, entering softly, he helped to close and chain the door and followed softly along the hallway the man's back and |3listed feet and lighted3| candle past a lighted crevice of doorway on the left and carefully down a turning staircase of more than five steps into the kitchen of Bloom's house.
What did Bloom do?
He extinguished the candle by a sharp
expiration3| of breath
upon its flame, drew two
chairs to the
hearthstone, one for Stephen with
its7| back to the area
window, the other for himself when necessary, knelt on one knee,
composed in the
grate a pyre of crosslaid resintipped sticks and various coloured papers and
best Abram coal at twentyone shillings a ton from the yard of
Messrs Flower and M'Donald of |37 143| D'Olier
street, kindled it at three projecting points of paper with one ignited |8wooden lucifer8| match|8, thu thereby releasing the potential energy contained in the fuel by allowing its carbon and hydrogen elements to enter into free union with the oxygen of the air8|.
Of what similar apparitions did Stephen think?
Of others elsewhere in other times who, kneeling on one knee or on two, had kindled fires for him, of Brother Michael in the infirmary of the college of the Society of Jesus at Clongowes Wood|8, Sallins,8| in the county of Kildare|6,:6| of his father, Simon Dedalus, in |6the an6| unfurnished room of his first residence in Dublin, number thirteen Fitzgibbon street|6,:6| of his godmother Miss Kate Morkan in the house of her dying sister Miss Julia Morkan at 15 Usher's Island|6,:6| |8of his aunt Sara, wife of Richie (Richard Goulding) in the kitchen of their lodgings at 62 Clanbrassil street,8| of his mother |8Mary, wife of Simon Dedalus,8| inº the kitchen of number twelve North Richmond street on the morning of the feast of Saint Francis Xavierº 1898|6,:6| of the dean of |6Studies studies6|, Father Butt, in the physics' theatre of university College, 16 Stephen's Green, northº |6,:6| of his sister Dilly (Delia) in his father's house in Cabra.
What did Stephen see on raising his gaze to the height of a yard from the fire towards the opposite wall?
|3Under a row of |65 five6| coiled spring housebells3| (5A a5) curvilinear rope|8,8| stretched between two holdfasts athwart across the recess beside the chimney pier|8,8| from which hung four smallsized square handkerchiefs folded unattached consecutively in adjacent rectangles and one pair of |6grey Lisle6| ladies' |6grey6| |8stockings hose8| |6with Lisle suspender tops and feet6| in their habitual position clamped by three erect wooden pegs two at their outer extremities and the third at their point of junction.
|3What did Bloom think of their different ages?
That neither could Stephen now have his age then nor he then Stephen's now.3|
|7What did Bloom see on the range?
On the right
hob a blue enamelled
saucepan: on the
left (larger) hob a black iron kettle.7|

What reason did Stephen give for declining Bloom's offer?
That he was hydrophobe, hating
partial3| contact by
last bath having taken place in the month of
October of the preceding year|6)6|,º disliking the |8acqueous aqueous8| substances of glass and crystal, distrusting aquacities of thought and language.
What impeded Bloom from giving Stephen counsels of hygiene and prophylactic |6with to which should be added6| suggestions concerning a preliminary wetting of the head and contraction of the muscles with rapid splashing of the face |6and neck6| and thoracic |6and epigastric6| region in case of sea or river bathing|7,7| |6the parts of the human anatomy most sensitive to cold being the nape, stomach and thenar or sole of foot6|?º
|3What additional |8didactic8| counsels did he similarly repress?
Dietary: concerning the respective percentage of protein and caloric energy in bacon, salt ling and butter, the absence of the former in the lastnamed and the abundance of the latter in the firstnamed.
Which seemed to the host to be the predominant qualities of his guest?
The phenomenon of ebullition.

compressed mineral form the foliated

in part absorbed, in part transmitted, gradually raising the
the water from
point|6, a rise in
temperature expressible as the result of an
72 thermal units
needed to raise 1 pound of water from 50° to 212°
What announced the accomplishment of this rise in temperature?
A double falciform
ejection of water vapour from under the kettlelid at both sides simultaneously.
For what personal purpose could Bloom have applied the water so boiled?
To shave himself.
A softer beard|6,:6| (3a softer brush if intentionally allowed to remain from shave to shave in its |6agglutinated6| lather|6,:6|3) |3a softer skin if |aunexpectedlya| encountering female acquaintances in remote places at incustomary hours|6,:6|3| quiet reflections upon the course of the day|6,:6| a cleaner sensation when awaking after a fresher sleep since matutinal noises, premonitions and perturbations, a clattered milkcan, a postman's double knock, (3a paper read|7,7| reread while lathering, relathering the same spot,3) a shock, a shoot, with thought of aught he sought though fraught with nought might cause a faster rate of shaving and a nick|6,6| on which incision plaster with precision|6,6| cut and humected and applied|6,6| adhered:º which was to be done.
|3Why did absence of light disturb him less than presence of noise?
What quality did it |6(his hand)6| possess but with what counteracting influence?
The operative |asurgicala| quality but that he was reluctant to shed human blood even when the end justified the means., preferring, in their natural order, heliotherapy, |6medical therapeutics psychophysicotherapeutics6|, osteopathic surgery.3|
On the lower shelf five
breakfast saucers on which rested inverted breakfast cups, a moustachecup,
uninverted, and saucer of Crown Derby, four white
goldrimmed eggcups, an open shammy purse displayingº coins, mostly copper, |8and8| a phial of aromatic |8(violet)º8| comfits |8and a red bettingticket8|. On the middle shelf a chipped eggcup containing pepper, a drum of table salt, four |3conglomerated3| black olives inº |3oily oleaginous3| paper, an empty pot of

On the upper shelf a battery of jamjarsº of various sizes |8and proveniences8|.
(3What attracted his attention lying on the apron of the dresser?
What reminiscences temporarily corrugated his brow?
Reminiscences of coincidences, truth stranger than fiction, preindicative of the result of the Gold Cup flat handicap, the |8official and definitive8| result of which he had read in the Evening Telegraph|6,6| late pink edition, in the cabman's shelter, at |6Butt's Butt6| bridge.
Where had previous intimations of the result, effected or projected, been received by him?
In Bernard Kiernan's licensed premises 8, 9 and 10 Little Britain
street|7,:7| in David Byrne's licensed premises, 14 Duke street|7,:7| in O'Connell street lower, outside Graham Lemon's when a dark man had placed in his hand a throwaway (subsequently thrown away), advertising Elijah, restorer of the church in Zion|7,:7| in Lincoln place outside the premises of F. W.º Sweny and Co (Limited), dispensing chemists, when, when Frederick M. (Bantam) Lyons had rapidly and successively requested, perused and restituted the copy of the current issue of the Freeman's Journal and National Press which he had been about to throw away (subsequently thrown away), he had proceeded towards the oriental edifice of the Turkish and Warm Baths, 11 Leinster street, with the light of
inspiration shining in his countenance and bearing in his arms the secret of the race, graven in the language of prediction.
What |4collateral modify qualifying4| considerations allayed his perturbations?
The difficulties of interpretation since the significance of any event followed its |6occurence occurrence6| as variably as the acoustic report followed the electrical discharge|6,6| and of counterestimating against an actual loss by failure to interpret the total sum of possible losses proceeding originally from a successful interpretation.
He had not risked, he did not expect, he had not been disappointed, he was satisfied.6|
What satisfied him?
To have sustained no positive loss. To have brought a positive gain to others. Light to the gentiles.3)
How did Bloom prepare a collation |3for a gentile3|?
He poured into two teacups
spoonfuls, four in all, of Epps's
proceeded according to the directions for use printed on the
to each adding
prescribed ingredients |8of for diffusion8| in the manner and in the quantity prescribed4|.
What |8supererogatory8| marks of special hospitality did the host show his guest?
Relinquishing his |8symposiarchal8| right to the moustache cup of imitation (8crown Crown8) Derby presented to him by his only daughter, Millicent |6|7(Milly)7|,6| he |6drank from substituted6| a cup identical with that of his guest and served |8extraordinarily8| to his guest and, in reduced measure, to himself|4(err,err)º4| the |6viscous6| cream |8usually ordinarily8| reserved for the breakfast of his wife Marion (Molly).
Was the guest conscious of and did he acknowledge these marks of hospitality?
|3|aWas there a mark Were there marksa| of attention hospitality which he contemplated but suppressed?, reserving |ait thema| for another |aand for himselfa| on |aaa| future |aoccasion occasions |6to complete the act begun6|a|?
The reparation of a fissure of the length of 1½ inches in the right side of his guest's jacket. A gift to his guest of one of the four lady's handkerchiefs, if and when ascertained to be in a presentable condition.3|
Who drank more quickly?
Bloom, having the
advantage of ten seconds at the
taking|8, from the concave
surface of a spoon along the handle of which a steady flow of heat was
three sips to his
six to two, nine to three6|.
What cerebration accompanied his |8frequentative8| act?
Concluding |3by inspection but erroneously3| that his silent companion was engaged in mental composition he reflected on the pleasures derived from literature of instruction rather than of amusement as he himself had applied to the works of |8William8| Shakespeare more than once for the solution of difficult problems in imaginary or real life.
In spite of careful and repeated reading of certain |3classical3| passages, aided by a glossary, he had |3not3| derived |3imperfect3| conviction from the text|3, the answers not bearing in all points3|.
What lines concluded his first piece of original verse written |6by him, potential poet,6| at the age of 11 in 1877 on the occasion of the offering of three prizes of 10/-, 5/- and 2/6 respectively (4for competition4)º by the Shamrock, a weekly newspaper?
An ambition to squint
At my verses in print
Makes me hope that for these you'll find room.º
If you so condescend
Then please place at the end
The name of yours truly, L. Bloom|8.8|
Did he find four separating forces between his temporary guest and him?
Name, age, race, creed.
What anagrams had he made on his name in youth?

Villa, Kimmage road, Roundtown, in 1887, |ain the company of |6his Stephen's6| mother,a| Stephen being then of the age of 5 and reluctant to give his hand in salutation. The second |3time3| in the coffeeroomº of Breslin's hotel on a rainy Sunday in the January of 1892, in the company of |6his Stephen's6| father and |6his Stephen's6| granduncle, Stephen being then 5 years older.
Very gratefully, |6appreciatively with grateful appreciation6|, |6sincerely with sincere appreciative gratitude6|, |6regretfully in appreciatively grateful sincerity of regret6|, he declined.
Did their conversation on the subject of these reminiscences reveal a third connecting link between them?
Mrs Riordanº, a widow of independent means, had resided in the house of Stephen's parents from 1 September 1888 to 29 December 1891 and had also resided during the years 1892, 1893 and 1894 in the City Arms Hotel owned by Elizabeth O'Dowd of 54 Prussia street where,º during parts of the years 1893 and 1894,º she had been a constant informant of Bloom who resided also in the same hotel, being at that time a clerk in the employment of Joseph Cuffe of 5 Smithfield for the superintendence of sales in the adjacent Dublin Cattle market on the North Circular road.
Had he performed any special corporal work of mercy for her?
He had sometimes
propelled her on
warm summer evenings, an infirm widow of independent, if
slow revolutions of
its wheels as far as the corner of the North Circular road opposite Mr Gavin
Low's place of business where she had remained for a certain time scanning
through his onelensed
fieldglasses unrecognisable citizens on tramcars, roadster
|3equipped with inflated
and hired landaus, dogcarts, ponytraps and brakes passing from the city to the
Phoenixº Park and vice versa.
Why could he |8then8| support that his vigil with the greater equanimity?
Because in middle youth he had often sat observing through a |3glass boss rondel of bossed glass3| of a multicoloured pane the spectacle offered with continual changes of the thoroughfare without, pedestrians, quadrupeds, velocipedes, vehicles, passing slowly, quickly, evenly, round and round and round the rim of a round |6and roundº6| precipitous globe.
What distinct different memories had each of her now eight years deceased?
The older, her bezique cards and counters, her Skye terrier, her
suppositious wealth, her lapses of responsiveness
younger, her lamp of
colza oil before the statue of the Immaculate Conception,
her green and maroon brushes for |8Charles Stewart8| Parnell and for Michael Davitt, her tissue papers.
Were there no means still remaining to him to achieve the rejuvenation which these reminiscences divulged to a younger companion rendered the more desirable?
The indoor exercisesº, formerly intermittently practised, subsequently abandoned, prescribed in Eugen Sandow's Physical Strength and How toº Obtain It which, designed particularly for commercial men engaged in sedentary occupations, were to be made with mental concentration in front of a mirror so as to bring into play the various families of muscles and produce successively a pleasant rigidity, a more pleasantº relaxation and the most pleasant repristination of juvenile agility.
Had any special agility been his in earlier youth?
lifting had been beyond his strength and the full circle gyration beyond his
courage yet as a High Schoolº
scholar he had
excelled in his stable and protracted execution of the half lever movement on
the parallel bars in consequence of his abnormally developed abdominal muscles.
Did either openly allude to their racial difference?
What |6did Bloom think that Stephen thought, reduced to their simplest |8reciprocal8| form, were Bloom's thoughts about Stephen's thoughts6| about Bloom |8andº |errBloom's thoughtsºerr| about Stephen's thoughts about Bloom's thoughts about Stephen8|?
What|6, the enclosures of reticence removed,6| were their respective parentages?
heir of Rudolf Virag (subsequently
Rudolphº Bloom) of
London and Dublin and of
Higgins,º second daughter of Julius
Higgins (born Karoly) and
(born Hegarty). Stephen, eldest
heir of Simon Dedalus of Cork and Dublin and of Mary, daughter of Richard and Christina Goulding (born Grier).
Had Bloom and Stephen been baptised|6, and where and by whom, cleric or layman6|?
Bloom |6(6|three times|6,)6| by the reverend Mr Gilmer Johnston M.A., alone,º in the protestant church of Saint Nicholasº Without, Coombe|6(err,;º9)6| by James O'Connor, Philip Gilligan and James Fitzpatrick, together, under a pump in the village of Swords(err,;ºerr) and by the reverend Charles Malone,º C.C., in the church of the Three Patrons, Rathgar. Stephen (once) by the reverend Charles Malone, C.C.,º alone,º in the church of the Three Patrons, Rathgar.
Did they find their educational careers similar?
Stephen had been Bloom he Substituting Stephen for Bloom
successively through a dame's school and the high
Bloom had been Stephen he Substituting Bloom for Stephen
Blephen8| would have
passed successively6| through
the preparatory, junior, middle and senior grades of the intermediate and through the matriculation, first arts,º second arts and |8arts8| degree courses of the |6royal6| university.
Why did Bloom refrain from stating that he had frequented the university of life?
Because of his |6fluctuating6| incertitude as to whether this observation had |7or had not7| been already made by him to Stephen or by Stephen to him.
What two temperaments did they individually represent?
The scientific. The artistic.
What proofs did Bloom adduce to prove that his tendency was towards applied, rather than |6to towards6| pure, science?
Certain possible inventions of which he had cogitated when reclining |8on his back8| in a state of |8supine8| repletion to aid digestion, stimulated by his appreciation of the importance of inventions now common but once revolutionary, for example, the |6aeronautic6| parachute, |3the reflecting telescope,3| the |6spiral6| corkscrew, the safety pin, |3the mineral water |8syphon siphon8|,3| the canal lock |6with winch and sluice|8, the suction pump8|6|.
Were these inventions principally intended for an improved scheme of kindergarten?
Yes|6, rendering obsolete
kaleidoscopes exhibiting the twelve
constellations of the zodiac from Aries to Pisces, |6miniature mechanical orreries,6| arithmetical gelatine lozenges, geometrical to correspond |8to with8| zoological biscuits, globemap playing balls, historically costumed dolls.
What also stimulated him in his cogitations?
The financial success achieved by Ephraim Marks and Charles A.º James, the former by his 1d(5.º5) bazaar at 42 George's streetº, southº, the latter at |6his6| 6½d(5.º5) shop and world's fancy fair and waxwork exhibitionº at 30 Henry (errStreet streetºerr), admission (56d |86d. 2d.8|5),º children 1d(5.5);º and the infinite possibilities hitherto unexploited of the modern art of advertisement if condensed in triliteral |8monoideal8| symbols|8, vertically of maximum visibility |a(divined)a|, horizontally of maximum legibility |a(deciphered)a| and8| of magnetising efficacy |8to arrest involuntary attention, to interest, to convince, to decide8|.º

Which example did he adduce to induce Stephen to |3comprehend deduce3| that originality|3, though |aproducinga| its own reward,3| does not invariably conduce to success?
His own ideated and rejected project of an illuminated showcart, drawn by a beast of burden, in which two smartly dressed girls were to be seated engaged in writing.
What suggested scene was then constructed by Stephen?
|6A solitary Solitary6| hotel in |6a6| mountain pass. Autumn. Twilight. |6A fire Fire6| lit. In |6a6| dark corner |6a6| young man seated. |6A young Young6| woman enters. Restless. |7Solitary.7| She sits. She goes to |6the6| window. She stands. She sits. Twilight. She thinks. On solitary hotel paper she writes. She thinks. She writes. She sighs. Wheels and hoofs.

Did he attribute this homonymity to information or coincidence or intuition?
He preferred himself to see
face7| and listen to
another's words by which potential narration was realised and
kinetic temperament relieved.
Did he see only a second coincidence in the second scene narrated to him, described by the narrator as A Pisgah Sight of Palestine or The Parable of the Plums?
It, with the preceding scene and with others unnarrated but existent by implication, |3to which add essays on various subjects |7or moral apothegms (e.g. My Favourite Hero or Procrastination is the Thief of Time)7| composed during schoolyears,3| seemed to him to contain in itself and in conjunction with the personal equation certain possibilities of financial, social, personal and sexual success, whether |3specially collected and selected as model |8pedagogicº8| themes |4(of cent per cent merit)4| for the use of preparatory and junior grade students or3| contributed in printed form, following the precedent of Philip Beaufoy or Doctor Dick or Heblon's Studies in Blue, to a publication of certified circulation and solvency or employed verbally as intellectual stimulation for sympathetic auditors|3, tacitly appreciative of successful narrative and confidently augurative of successful achievement,3| during the increasingly |6long longer6| nights gradually following the summer solstice |7on the day but three following, videlicet, Tuesday, 21 June |8(S.

Which domestic problem as much as, if not more than, any other frequently engaged his mind?
What to do with our wives.
What had been his hypothetical singular solutions?
Parlour games (dominos, |6bézique,6| halma, tiddledywinks, |6spilikins, cup and ball, nap, spoil five, bezique, twentyfive, beggar my neighbour,6| draughts, chess or backgammon): embroidery, darning or knitting for the policeaided clothing society: musical duets, mandoline and guitar, piano and flute, guitar and piano: legal scrivenery or envelope addressing: biweekly visits to variety entertainments: commercial activity |6as pleasantly commanding and pleasingly obeyed mistress proprietress6| in a cool dairy shop or warm cigar divan: the clandestine satisfaction of erotic irritation in masculine brothels, |7state-inspected state inspected7| and medically controlled: |3social visits, at regular infrequent |apreventeda| intervals and with regular frequent |apreventivea| |8superintendance superintendence8|, to and from female acquaintances of recognised respectability in the vicinity:3| courses of evening instruction specially designed to render |7liberal7| instruction agreeable.
What instances of deficient mental development in his wife
inclined him in favour of the
In disoccupied moments she had more than once covered a sheet of paper with signs and hieroglyphics which she stated were Greek and Irish |6and Hebrew6| characters. She had interrogated constantly at varying intervals as to the correct method of writing the capital initial of the name of a city in Canada, Quebec. She understood little of political complications, internal|3,3| or |3balance of power,3| external. In calculating the addenda of bills she frequently had recourse to digital aid. |8After completion of laconic epistolary compositions she abandoned the implement of calligraphy in the encaustic pigment,º exposed to the corrosive action of copperas, green vitriol and nutgall.8| Unusual polysyllables of foreign origin she interpreted phonetically or by false analogy or by both: metempsychosis (met him pike hoses), aliasº (a mendacious person mentioned in |3sacred3| scriptureº).
compensated in the false balance of her intelligence for these and such
judgment regarding persons, places and things?
The false apparent parallelism of all perpendicular arms of all balances, |aproveda| true by construction. The counterbalance of her proficiency of judgment regarding one person, proved true by experiment.7|
How had he attempted to remedy this state of comparative ignorance?
Variously. By leaving in a conspicuous place a certain book open at a certain page|7,:7| by assuming in her|6,6| when alluding explanatorily|6,6| latent knowledge|7,:7| by open ridicule in her presence of some absent other's ignorant lapse.
With what success had he attempted direct instruction?
She followed not all, a part of the whole, gave attention with interest, comprehended with surprise, with care repeated, with greater difficulty remembered, forgot with ease, with misgiving |3remembered reremembered3|, |3repeated rerepeated3| with error.
What system had proved more effective?
Indirect suggestion implicating |8self interest self-interest8|.º

rain, he liked woman with new hat, he bought new hat with
She, she7| carried umbrella with new hat.
Accepting the analogy implied in his guest's parable which examples of postexilic eminence did he adduce?
Three seekers of the
pure truth, Moses
of Egypt, Moses
Maimonides, author of
(Guide of the Perplexed) and Moses Mendelssohn of such eminence that
from Moses (of Egypt)
to Moses (Mendelssohn) there arose none like Moses (Maimonides).
What statement was made, under correction, by Bloom concerning a fourth seeker of pure truth, by name Aristotle, mentioned|8, with permission,8| by Stephen?
Felix Bartholdy Mendelssohn (composer), Baruch Spinoza (philosopher), Mendoza (pugilist)|8,8| |7Ferdinand Lassalle (reformer, |8duelist duellist8|)7|.3|
What fragmentsº of verse from the ancient Hebrew and ancient Irish languages were cited with modulations of voice and translation of texts by guest to host and by host to guest?
By Stephen: suil, suil, suil arun, suil go siocair agus suil go cuin (walk, walk, walk your way, walk in safety, walk with care).
How was a glyphic comparison (3made3) of the phonic symbols of both languages (3made in substantiation of the oral comparison3)?
Onº the penultimate blank page of a book
|8of inferior literary
Sweets of Sin (produced by Bloom and so
its front cover came in contact with the surface of the table) with a pencil
(supplied by Stephen) Stephen wrote the Irish characters for gee, eh, dee, em,
simple and modified, and Bloom in turn wrote the Hebrew characters ghimel,
aleph, daleth and (in the absence of mem) a substituted
qophº, explaining their arithmetical
as ordinal and
videlicet6| 3, 1,
4,º and 100.
Was the knowledge possessed by both of each of these languages,
the extinct and the revived, theoretical or practical?
What points of contact existed between (5between5) these languages and |3between3| the peoples who spoke them?
The presence of guttural sounds|8, diacritic aspirations, epenthetic and servile letters8| in both languages|7,:7| their antiquity, both having |errbeenºerr| taught on the plain of Shinar 242 years after the deluge in the seminary instituted by Fenius Farsaigh, descendant of Noah, progenitor of Israel, and ascendant of Heber and Heremon, progenitors of Ireland|7,:7| their |6vast6| archaeologicalº|6,6| genealogical |6and,6| |8hagiographical, exegetical, homilectic, toponomastic,8| historical and religious literatures comprising the works of rabbis and culdees, Torah, Talmud |7(Mischna and Ghemara)7|,º |7Massor,7| Pentateuch, Book of the Dun Cow, Book of Ballymote, |7Garland of Howth,7| Book of Kells: their dispersal, persecution, survival and revival: (3the isolation of their |8synagogical and ecclesiastical8| rites in ghetto (S. Mary's Abbey) and masshouse (Adam and Eve's tavern): the proscription of their national costumes in penal laws and jewish dress acts:3) the restoration in Chanahº David of Zion and the possibility of Irish political autonomy or devolution.
What anthem did Bloom chant partially in anticipation of that |3multiple|6,6| ethnically irreducibleº3| consummation?
In consequence of defective mnemotechnic.
How did |6he the chanter6| compensate for this deficiency?
By a periphrastic version of the general text.
In what common study did their mutual reflections merge?
The increasing simplification traceable from the Egyptian
hieroglyphs to the Greek and Roman alphabets and the anticipation of modern
stenography and telegraphic code in the cuneiform inscriptions (Semitic) and the
ogham writing (Celtic).
Doubly, by appending his signature in Irish and Roman characters.
What was Stephen's auditive sensation?
He heard in a profound ancient male unfamiliar melody the accumulation of the past.
What was Bloom's visual sensation?
|7What were Stephen's and Bloom's quasisimultaneous volitional quasisensations |aof concealed identitiesa|?
Visually, Stephen's: The traditional figure of hypostasis, depicted by Johannes Damascenus, Lentulus Romanus and Epiphanius Monachus as leucodermic, sesquipedalian with winedark hair.
What future careers had been possible for |8him Bloom8| in the past and with what exemplars?
church, Roman, Anglicanº or
Nonconformist: exemplars, the very reverend John Conmee S.J., the reverend T.
D.D.5), provost of
Trinity college, Dr Alexander J. Dowie. At the bar, English or

Isaacs, K.C. On the
stage, modern or Shakespearean: exemplars|6:,º6| Charles Wyndham, high comedian, Osmond Tearle († 1901), exponent of Shakespeare.
Did the host encourage his guest to chant in a modulated voice a strange legend on an allied theme?
Reassuringly, their place,º where
none could hear them talk,º being
secluded, reassured, the
water plus sugar plus cream plus
having been consumed.
Recite the first (major) part of this chanted legend?
Harry Hughes and his schoolfellows all
Went out for to play ball.
And the very first ball littleº Harry Hughes played
He drove it o'er the jew'sº garden wall.
And the very second ball little Harry Hughes played
He broke the jew's windows all.
How did the |4host son of Rudolph4| receive this first part?
Smiling, a jew, he heard with pleasure and saw the unbroken kitchen window.
Recite the second part (minor) of the legend.
“I can't come back and I won't come back
Without my schoolfellows all.
For if my master he did hear
He'd make it a sorry ball(5.5)”
She took him by the lilywhite hand
And led him along the hall
Until she led him to a room
Where none could hear him call.
She took a penknife out of her pocket
And cut off his little (errhead head,ºerr)
And now he'll play his ball no more
For he lies among the dead.
How did the |4host father of Millicent4| receive this second part?
Unsmiling, he heard and saw with wonder a jew's daughter,
(Milly),4| all dressed in green.
Condense Stephen's commentary.
One of all, the least of all, is the victim predestined. Once by inadvertence, twice by design he challenges his destiny. It comes when he is abandoned and challenges him reluctant and, as an apparition of hope and youth, holds him unresisting. It leads him to a strange habitation, to a secret infidel apartment, and there, implacable, immolates him, consenting.
|4Why was the host (victim predestined) sad?
Why was the host (reluctant, unresisting) still?
|8blank In accordance with the law of the conservation of energy.8|4|
Why was the host |4(secret infidel)4| silent?
He weighed the possible evidences for and against ritual murder: the incitationsº of the hierarchy, the superstition of the populace, |7the propagation of rumour in continued fraction of veridicity,7| the envy of opulence|6:,6| the influence of retaliation, the sporadic reappearance of atavistic delinquency, the mitigating circumstances of fanaticism, hypnotic suggestion and |s8sonambulism somnambulismºs8|.
(5From which |8(if any)8| of these mental or physical disorders was he not totally immune?
From hypnotic suggestion: once, waking, he had not recognised his sleeping
apartment: more than once, waking, he had been for an indefinite time incapable
of moving or uttering sounds. From
once, sleeping, his body had risen, crouched and crawled in the direction of a heatless fire and, having attained its destination, there, curled, unheated, in night attire had lain, sleeping.5)
Had this latter or any cognate phenomenon declared itself in any member of his family?
Twice, in Holles street and in Ontario terrace, his daughter Millicent
(Milly) at the ages of 6 and 8 years had uttered in sleep an exclamation of
terror and had replied to the interrogations of two figures in night attire with a vacant mute expression.
What other infantile memories had he of her?
15 June 1889. A querulous |7newborn7| female infant crying to cause and lessen congestion. A child renamed Padney Socks she shook with shocks her moneybox: counted his three free |6moneypenny6| buttons,º one, tloo, tlee: a doll, a boy, a sailor she |6threw cast6| away: blond, born of two dark, she had blond ancestry, remote, a violation, Herr Hauptmann Hainau, Austrian army, proximate, a hallucinationº, lieutenant Mulvey, British navy.
What endemic characteristics were present?
Conversely the nasal and frontal formation was derived in a direct line of lineage which, though interrupted, would continue at distant intervals to more distant intervals toº its most distant intervals.
What memories had he of her adolescence?
She relegated her
a recess. On the duke's
entreated by an English
she declined to permit
him to make and take away her photographic image

South Circular road in the company of Elsa Potter,
followed by an
individual of sinister aspect, she went half way down Stamer street and turned
abruptly back |7(reason
of change not
stated)7|. On the
vigil of the 15th anniversary of her birth she wrote a letter from Mullingar,
county Westmeath, making a brief allusion to a local student |7(faculty |aand yeara| not stated)7|.
Did that first division, portending a second division, afflict him?
Less than he had imagined, more than he had hoped.
What second departure was contemporaneously perceived by him similarly,º if differently?
Why similarly, why differently?
Similarly, because actuated by a secret purpose the quest of a |3new3| male |3(Mullingar student)3| or of a healing herb |3(valerian)3|. Differently, because of different possible returns to the inhabitants or to the habitation.
In other respects were their differences similar?
In passivity, in economy, in the instinct of tradition, in unexpectedness.

theirº differences were
As object lessons to explain: 1) the nature and habits of oviparous animals, the possibility of aerial flight, certain abnormalities of vision, the secular process of imbalsamation: 2) the principle of the pendulum, exemplified in bob, wheelgear and regulator, the translation in terms of human or social regulation of the various positions of |8clockwiseº8| moveable indicators on an unmoving dial, the exactitude of the recurrence per hour of an instant in each hour|7,7|º when the longer and the shorter indicator were at the same angle of inclination, videlicet, 5 5⁄11 minutes past each hour per hour in arithmetical progression.
In what manners did she reciprocate?
She remembered: on the 27th anniversary of his birth she presented to him a
breakfast moustachecup of imitation crown Derby porcelain ware. She provided: at
quarter day or thereabouts if or when purchases had been made by him not for her
she showed herself attentive to his necessities, anticipating his desires. She
admired: a natural phenomenon having been explained by him
she expressed the
immediate desire to possess without gradual acquisition a fraction of his
science, the moiety, the quarter, a thousandth part.
What proposal did Bloom, diambulist, father of Milly, (5sonambulist somnambulist5), make to Stephen, noctambulist?
To pass in repose the hours intervening between Thursday (proper) and Friday (normal) on an extemporised cubicle in the apartment immediately above the kitchen and immediatelyº adjacent to the sleeping apartment of his host and hostess.
For the guest: security of domicile and seclusion of study. For the host:
rejuvenation of intelligence, vicarious satisfaction. For the
hostess: disintegration of obsession, acquisition of correct Italian pronunciation.
|3Why might these several|aeventualities |bprovisionalb| |6contingency contingencies6|a| between a guest and a hostess not necessarily preclude or be precluded by a permanent |acontingency eventuality of reconciliatory uniona| between a |6boy schoolfellow6| and a jew's daughter?
To what |7inconsequent polysyllabic7| question of his host did the guest return a |amonosyllabica| negative answer?
If he had known |athe latea| Mrs Emily Sinico, accidentally killed at Sydney Parade railway station|6,6| 14 October 1903.3|
|8What inchoate |aconsequent corollarya| statement was consequently suppressed by the host?
A statement explanatory of his absence on the occasion of the interment of Mrs Mary |errGoulding Dedalus (born Goulding)ºerr|, 26 June 1903, vigil of the anniversary of the decease of Rudolph Bloom (born Virag).8|
Was the proposal |8of asylum8| accepted?
Promptly, inexplicably, with amicability, gratefully it was declined.
To inaugurate a |6prearranged6| course of Italian instruction, place the residence of the instructed. To inaugurate a course of vocal instruction, place the residence of the instructress. To inaugurate a series of static, semistatic and peripatetic intellectual dialogues, places the residence of both speakers (if both speakers were resident in the same place),º the (errShip Shipºerr) hotel and tavern, 6 Lower Abbey street (W. and E.º Connery, proprietors), the National Library of Ireland, 10 Kildare street, the National Maternity Hospital, 29, 30 and 31 Holles street, a public garden, the vicinity of a place of worship, a conjunction of two or more public thoroughfares, the point of bisection of a right line drawn between their residences (if both speakers were resident in different places).
What rendered problematic for Bloom the realisation of these mutually selfexcluding propositions?
The irreparability of the past: once at a performance of Albert Hengler's circus in the Rotunda, Rutland squareº, Dublin|8,8| an intuitive particolouredº clown in quest of paternity had penetrated from the ring to a place in the auditorium where Bloom, solitary, was seated and had publicly declared to an exhilarated audience that he (Bloom) was his (the clown's) papa. The imprevidibility of the future: once in the summer of 1898 he (Bloom) had marked a florin (2/-) with three notches on the milled edge and tendered it in payment of an account due to and received by J. and T.º Davy, family grocers, 1 Charlemont Mall, Grand Canal, for circulation on the waters of civic finance, for possible, circuitous or direct, return.
Was the clown Bloom's son?
Why would a recurrent frustration the more depress him?
Because at the critical turningpoint of human existence he desired to amend
many social conditions, the product of inequality and avarice and international animosity.
He believed then that human life was infinitely perfectible, eliminating these conditions?
There remained the generic conditions imposed by natural, as distinct from human law(3, as integral parts of the human whole3):º the necessity of destruction to procure alimentary sustenance|6,(err;:º9)6| the painful character of |6the ultimate functions of |aseparatea| existence,6| |8the agonies of8| birth and death|6,:6| the monotonous menstruationº of simian and (particularly) human females extending from the age of puberty to the menopause|6,(err;:º9)6| inevitable accidents at sea, in mines and factories|6,:6| certain very painful maladies and their resultant surgical operations, innate lunacy and |6congenital6| criminality, (3decimating epidemics|6,:6|3) catastrophic cataclysmsº which make terror the basis of human mentality|6,:6| seismic upheavals the epicentres of which are located in densely populated regions|6,:6| the fact of vital growth|6, through convulsions of metamorphosis,6| from infancy through maturity to decay.
Why did he desist from speculation?
Because it was a task for a superior intelligence to substitute other |7|amorea| acceptable7| phenomena in theº place of |6those the |7less acceptable7| phenomena6| to be removed.
Did Stephen participate in his dejection?
He affirmed his significance as a |6conscious rational animal proceeding syllogistically from the known to the unknown and a6| conscious rational reagent between a micro and a macrocosm |8ineluctably8| constructed upon the incertitude of the void.
Was this affirmationº apprehended by Bloom?
|8What comforted his misapprehension?
That as a competent keyless citizen he had proceeded energetically from the unknown to the known through the incertitude of the void.8|
|7In what order of precedence, with what attendant ceremony was the exodus from the house of bondage to the wilderness of inhabitation effected?
Lighted Candle in Stick
Diaconal Hat on Ashplant
With what intonation secreto of what psa commemorative psalm?
|8What did each doº at the door of egress?
Bloom set the candlestick on the floor. Stephen put the hat on his head.
For what creature was the door of egress a door of ingress?
For a cat.8|
What spectacle confronted them when they, first the host, then the guest, emerged silently, doubly dark, (3from obscurity3) by a passage from the rere of the house into (3the penumbra of3) the garden?
With what meditations did Bloom accompany his demonstration to
his companion of various constellationsº?

Why did he not elaborate these calculations to a more precise result?
Because some years previously in 1886 when occupied with the
problem of the quadrature of the circle he had learned of the existence of a number computed |4to a relative degree of accuracy4| to be of such magnitude |4and of so many places4|, e.g., the 9th power of the 9th power of 9, that|6,6| (3the result having been obtained,3) 33 closely printed volumes of 1000 pages each of innumerable quires and reams of India paper would have to be requisitioned in order to contain the complete tale of its printed integers (3|4of units, tens, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions, billions4|, the nucleus of the nebula of every digit of every series containing succinctly the potentiality of being raised to the utmost kinetic elaboration of any power of any of its powers3).
Did he find the |7problem problemsº7| of the inhabitability of the planets and their satellites |4by a race|6,6| given in species|6,6| |7and of the possible |asocial and moral redemptiona| of said race by a redeemer,7|4| easier of solution?
Of a different order of difficulty. Conscious that
normally capable of
sustaining an atmospheric pressure of
when elevated to a
considerable altitude in the terrestrial atmosphere suffered
the line of
demarcation between troposphere and
hemorrhage, impeded respiration and vertigo, when proposing this problem for
solution, he had conjectured
could not be proved
that a more
constructed race of beings might subsist otherwise under Martian,
Veneral, Jovian, Saturnian, Neptunian or Uranian

Was he more convinced of the esthetic value of the spectacle?
Indubitably in consequence of the reiterated examples of poets in the delirium of the frenzy of |6love attachment6| or in the abasement of rejection invoking |6resplendent ardent sympathetic6| constellations or the frigidity of the satellite of their planet(5?.5)
It seemed to him as possible of proof as of confutation and the nomenclature employed in its |3semelographical selenographical3| charts as attributable to verifiable intuition as to fallacious analogy: the lake of dreams, the |8seas sea8| of rains, the gulf of dews, the ocean of fecundity.
What special affinities appeared to him to exist between the moon and woman?

Both then were silent?
Were they indefinitely inactive?
At Stephen's suggestion, at Bloom's instigation both, first
Stephen, then Bloom, in penumbra
contiguous, their organs of micturition
invisible by manual circumposition, their gazes, first Bloom's, then
Stephen's, elevated to the projected luminous and semiluminous shadow.
The trajectories of their, first sequent, then simultaneous, urinations were dissimilar: Bloom's longer, less irruent, in the incomplete form of the bifurcated penultimate |6alphabetical6| letter who in his ultimate year at High School (1880) had been capable of attaining the point of greatest altitude against the whole |7concurrent7| strength of the institution|6,6| 210 scholars: Stephen's higher, more sibilant, who in the ultimate hours of the previous day had augmented by |7diuretic7| consumption an insistent |6vesical (errvescical vesicalº9)6| pressure.
What different problems presented themselves to each concerning the invisible audible |3collateral3| organ of the other?
To Bloom: the problems of irritability, tumescence, rigidity, reactivity,
dimension, sanitariness, pelosity. To Stephen: the problem of the sacerdotal
integrity of Jesus circumcised

and revealing an aperture for free egress and free ingress.
How did they takeº leave|7,7| one of the other|7,7| in separation?
Standing perpendicular at the same door and on different sides of its base, the lines of their valedictory arms, meeting at any point and forming any angle less than the sum of two right angles.3)
The sound of the peal of the hour of the night by the chime of the bells in the St church of Saint George.
What echoes of that sound were by both and each heard?
Liliata rutilantium. Turma circumdet.

Where were the several members of the company which with Bloom that day at the bidding of that peal had travelled from Sandymount in the south to Glasnevin in the north?

Alone, what did Bloom hear?
Alone, what did Bloom(8,8) feel?
|7Of what did bellchime and handtouch and footstep and lonechill remind him?
Of companions now in various manners in different places defunct: Percy Apjohn (killed in action, Modder River),º Philip Gilligan (phthisis, Jervis Street hospital), Matthew F. Kane (accidental drowning, Dublin Bay), Philip Moisel (pyemia, Heytesbury street),º Michael Hart|~,~|º (phthisis, Mater Misericordiaeº hospital), Patrick Dignam|~,~|º (apoplexy, Sandymount).7|
What prospect of what |7phenomenon phenomena7| inclined him to remain?
Had he ever been a spectator of |7that phenomenon those phenomena7|?
Once, in 1887,º after a protracted performance of charades in the house of Luke Doyle, Kimmage|6,6| he had awaited with patience the apparition of the diurnal phenomenon, seated on a wall, his gaze turned in the direction of |7Mizrach,7| the east.
He remembered the initial paraphenomena?
More active air, a matutinal distant cock, ecclesiastical clocks at various
points, avine music, the isolated tread of an early wayfarer, the visible
of the light of an invisible luminous body, the first golden limb of the resurgent |3sun |asolar disk suna|3| perceptible low on the horizon.
|3Did he remain?
inspiration he returned, retraversing the garden,
reentering the passage|7,7| |6reclosing the door6|. With brief suspiration he reassumed the candle, reascended the stairs, reapproached the door of the front room, hallfloor, and |6entered reentered6|.3|
|8His The8| right temporal lobe |7of the hollow sphere of his cranium7| came into contact with a solid timber angle where, an infinitesimal but sensible fraction of a second later, a painful sensation was located in consequence of antecedentº sensations transmitted and registered.
A sofa upholstered in prune plush had been translocated from opposite the door to the ingleside near the compactly furled Union Jack (an alteration which he had frequently intended to execute)|6,:6| the blue and white checker inlaid majolicatopped table had been placed opposite the door in the place vacated by the prune plush sofa: the walnut sideboard (a projecting angle of which had |6momentarily6| arrested his ingress) had been moved from its position beside the door to a more advantageous but more perilous position in front of the door: two chairs had been moved from right and left of the ingleside to the position originally occupied by the blue and white checker inlaid majolicatopped table.
One: a squat stuffed easychair,º with
stout arms extended and back slanted to the rere,
upturned an irregular fringe of a rectangular rug and
displayed on its amply upholstered seat a centralised
diminishing discolouration. The other: a slender splayfoot chair of glossy cane
opposite the former, its frame from top to seat and from seat to base being
varnished dark brown, its seat being a bright circle of white plaited rush.
What occupied the position originally occupied by the sideboard?
A vertical piano (Cadby) with exposed keyboard, its closed coffin supporting a pair of long yellow ladies' gloves and an emerald ashtray containing four consumed matches, a partly consumed cigarette and two discoloured ends of cigarettes, its musicrest supporting the music in the key of G natural for voice and piano of Love's Old Sweet Song (words by G. Clifton Bingham, composed by J.L. Molloy, sung by Madam Antoinette Sterling) open at the last page with the final indications |6ad libitum ad libitum6|, |6forte forte6|, pedal, |6animato animato6|, sustainedº pedal, |6ritirando ritirando6|,º close.
With what sensations did Bloom contemplate in rotation these objects?
With strain, elevating a candlestick: with pain|7,7| feeling on his right temple a contused tumescence: with attention, focussing his gaze on a large dull passive and aº slender bright active: |7with solicitation, bending and downturning the upturned rugfringe:7| with amusement, remembering Dr Malachi Mulligan's scheme of colour containing the gradation of green: with pleasure, repeating the words and antecedent act and perceiving through various channels of internal sensibility the consequent and concomitant tepid pleasant diffusion of gradual discolouration.
His next proceeding?
From an open box on theº
majolicatopped table he extracted a black diminutive
one6| inch in height,
placed it on its circular base on a small tin plate, placed his candlestick on
the right corner of the mantelpiece, produced from his waistcoat
letter page of prospectus (illustrated) entitled
letter same8|, examined it
superficially, rolled it into a thin cylinder, ignited it in the candleflame, applied it when ignited to the apex of the cone till the latter reached the stage of rutilance, placed the cylinder in the basin of the candlestick disposing its unconsumed part in such a manner as to facilitate total combustion.
What followed |3this operation3|?
objects, other than the candlestick, stood on the mantelpiece?
A timepiece of striated |3Connemara3| marble, stopped at the hour of 4.46 a.m. on the 21 March 1896, matrimonial gift of Matthew Dillon|6,:6| a dwarf tree of glacial arborescence under a transparentº bellshade, matrimonial gift of Luke and Caroline Doyle|6,:6| an embalmed owl, matrimonial gift of Alderman John Hooper.
What interchanges of looks took place between these three objects and Bloom?
In the mirror of the giltbordered pierglass the undecorated back of the dwarf tree regarded the upright back of the embalmed owl. Before the mirror the matrimonial gift of Alderman John Hooper with a clear melancholy wise bright motionless compassionate gaze regarded Bloom while Bloom with obscure tranquil profound motionless compassionated gaze regarded the matrimonial gift of Luke and Caroline Doyle.
What composite |3asymmetrical3| image in the mirror then attracted his attention?
Why solitary |3(ipsorelative)3|?
Brothers and sisters had he none.
Yet that man's father was his grandfather's son.
Why mutable |3(aliorelative)3|?
From infancy to maturity he had |3ressembled resembled3| his maternal procreatrix. From maturity to senility he would increasingly |3ressemble resemble3| his paternal procreator.
What final visual impression was communicated to him by the mirror?
Catalogue these books.

What reflections occupied his mind during the process of reversion of the inverted volumes?
The necessity of order, a place for everything and everything in its place: the deficient appreciation of literature possessed by females: the incongruity of an apple incuneated in a tumbler and of an umbrella inclined in a closestool: the insecurity of hiding any secret document behind, beneath or between the pages of a book.
|7Which volume was the largest in bulk?
|8Hardiman's Hozier's8| |8History of the Russo-Turkish War History of the Russo-Turkish War8|.7|
|8What among other data did the second volume of the work in question contain?
The name of a decisive battle (forgotten), frequently remembered by a decisive officer, major Brian Cooper Tweedy (remembered).8|
Why, firstly and secondly, did he not consult the work in question?
in order to exercise
because after an
interval of amnesia, when,º
seated at the central table, about to consult the work
in question, he remembered by mnemotechnic the name of the military engagement, Plevna.
|8What caused him consolation in his sitting posture?
The candour, nudity, pose, tranquilityº, youth, grace, sex, counsel of a statue erect in the centre of the table, an image of Narcissus purchased by auction from P.A. Wren, 9 Bachelor's Walk.8|
How was the irritation allayed?
He removed his collar, with contained black necktie and collapsible stud, from his neck to a position on the left of the table. He unbuttoned successively in reversed direction waistcoat, trousers, shirt and vest along the medial line of irregular incrispated black hairs extending in triangular convergence from the pelvic basin over the circumference of the abdomen and umbilicular fossicle along the medial line of nodes to the intersection of the sixth pectoral vertebrae, thence produced both ways at right angles and terminating in circles described about two equidistant points, right and left, on the summits of the mammary prominences. |7He unbraced successively each of six minus one braced trouser buttons, arranged in pairs, of which one incomplete.7|
What involuntary actions followed?
He compressed between 2 fingers the flesh circumjacent to
a cicatrice in
the left infracostal region below the diaphragm resulting from
a sting inflicted
2 weeks and 3 days previously (23 May 1904)
by a bee.
imprecisely with his right hand, though insensible of prurition, various points
and surfaces of his partly
wholly abluted skin. He inserted his left hand into the left lower pocket of
his waistcoat and
replaced a silver coin (1 shilling), placed there (presumably) on the
October 1903) of the interment of Mrs Emily Sinico, Sydney Parade.

Sensible of a benignant persistentº
ache in his

protuberances and salient points caused by foot pressure in the course of

Because the odour inhaled corresponded to other odours inhaled of other |8unghial |errunguial unguicalº9|8| fragments, picked and lacerated by Master Bloom, pupil of Mrs |3Jowett's Ellis's3| juvenile school, patiently each night in the act of brief genuflection and nocturnal prayer and ambitious meditation.

theories of Charles Darwin, expounded in The Descent of Man and The
Origin of Speciesº. In 1885 he had
publicly expressed his adherence to the collective and national economic
programme advocated by James Fintan Lalor, John Fisher Murray, John Mitchel,
O'Brien and others, the agrarian policy of Michael Davitt, the
constitutional agitation of Charles Stewart Parnell (M.P. for Cork City), the
programme of peace, retrenchment and reform of William Ewart Gladstone (M.P. for
N.B.7|) and, in
support of his political convictions,
had climbed up into a secure position amid the
ramifications of a tree on Northumberland road to see the entrance |7(2 Februaryº 1888)7| into the capital of a demonstrative torchlight procession |7of 20,000º torchbearers, divided into 120 trade corporations, bearing |a2,000 2000ºa| torches7| in escort of |7Viscount the marquess of7| Ripon and |v3(honest)v3|º John Morley.

|3What eventualityº would render him independent of such |6aliorelative6| wealth?
For what reason did he meditate on schemes so difficult of realisation?
It was one of his axioms that similar meditations or the automatic relation to himself of a narrative concerning himself or tranquil recollection of the past when practised habitually before retiring for the night (errallievated alleviatedºerr) fatigue and produced as a result sound repose and renovated vitality.
As a physicist he had learned that of the 70 years of complete human life at least 2⁄7, viz,º 20 years are passed in sleep. As a philosopher he knew that at the termination of any allotted life only an infinitesimal part of any person's desires has been realised. As a physiologist he believed in the artificial placation of malignant agencies chiefly operative during somnolence.

What other objects relative to Rudolph Bloom (born Virag) were in the 2nd drawer?
of Rudolph Virag and his father Leopold Virag executed in the year 1852
in the portrait
atelier of their (respectively) 1st and 2nd cousin, Stefan Virag of
book in which a pair
of hornrimmed convex spectacles inserted marked the passage of thanksgiving
in the ritual prayers for Pessach (Passover):
a photocard of the
Queen's Hotel, Ennis, proprietor, Rudolph Bloom: an envelope addressed: To My Dear Son Leopold.
Tomorrow will be a week that I received … it is no use Leopold to be … withº your dear mother … that is not more to stand … to her … all for me is out … be kind to Athos, Leopold … my dear son … always … of me … das Herz … Gott … dein …8|
What reminiscences |7of a human subject suffering from progressive melancholia7| did these objects evoke in Bloom?
An old man,º widower, unkempt ofº hair, in bed, with head covered, sighing: an infirm dog, Athos: |6veronal aconite6|, resorted to by increasing doses of grains and scruples as a palliative of recrudescent neuralgia: the face in death of a |3septuagenarian,º3| suicide by poison.
The prohibition of the use of fleshmeat and milk at one meal:º |7the hebdomadary symposium of incoordinately abstract, perfervidly concrete mercantile |acoexreligionists coexreligionist excompatriotsa|:7| the circumcision of male infants: the supernatural character of Judaic scripture: |8the ineffability of the tetragrammatonº:8| the sanctity of the sabbath.
How did these beliefs and practices now appear to him?
Not more rational than they had then appeared, not less rational than other beliefs and practices now appeared.
What first reminiscence had he of Rudolph Bloom (deceased)?
(deceased) narrated to his son Leopold Bloom (aged 6) a retrospective
arrangement of migrations and settlements in and between Dublin, London,
Florence, Milan, |6Vienna,
Szombathely with statements of satisfaction
(his grandfather having
seen Maria Theresia, empress of Austria, queen of Hungary), with commercial advice (having taken care of pence, the pounds having taken care of themselves). Leopold Bloom (aged 6) had accompanied |6this these6| narrations by constant consultation of a geographical map
of Europe (political) and by suggestions for the establishment of affiliated business premises in the various centres mentioned.
Had time equally but differently obliterated the memory of these migrations in narrator and listener?
In narrator by the access of years and in consequence of the use of narcotic toxin: in listener by the access of years and in consequence of the action of distraction upon vicarious experiences.
Occasionally he ate without having previously removed his hat. Occasionally he drank voraciously the juice of gooseberryº fool from an inclined plate. Occasionally he removed from his lips the traces of food by means of a lacerated envelope or other |8accessible8| fragment of paper.
What two phenomena |3of senescence3| were more frequent?

Nadir of
misery: the aged impotent disfranchised ratesupported moribund lunatic pauper.3|
With which attendant indignities?
The |3unsympathetic3| indifference of previously amiable females, the contempt of |7muscular7| males, the acceptance of fragments of bread, the simulated ignorance of casual acquaintances, the latration of illegitimate |7unlicensed7| vagabond dogs, the infantile discharge of |3decomposed3| vegetable missiles|4, worth little or nothing, nothing or less than nothing4|.

Retreating, at the terminus of the Great Northern Railway, Amiens street, with constant uniform acceleration, along parallel lines meeting at infinity, if produced: along parallel lines, reproduced from infinity, with constant uniform retardation, at the terminus of the Great Northernº Railway,º Amiens street, returning.7|
What |3miscellaneous effects of female3| personal |3objects wearing apparel3| were perceived by him?
A pair of new inodorous halfsilk black ladies' |8stockings hose8|, a pair of new violet garters, a pair of outsize ladies' drawers of India mull, cut on generous lines, redolent of opoponax, jessamine and Muratti's Turkish cigarettes and containing a long bright steel safety pin, folded curvilinear, a camisole of batiste with thin lace border, |erra anºerr| |6short6| |7blue7| |6silk petticoat accordion underskirt of blue silk moirette6|, all these objects being disposed irregularly on the top of a rectangular trunk, quadruple battened, having capped corners, with multicoloured labels, initialled on its fore side in white lettering B.C.T. (Brian Cooper Tweedy).
What impersonal objects were perceived?
commode, one leg fractured,
bya| square cretonne cutting,
apple design, on which rested a
bought of Henry Price, basket, fancy goods,
chinaware and ironmongery manufacturer|6,6| 21 |8to, 22,8| 23 Moore streetº, disposed irregularly on the washstand and floor,º and consisting of basin, soapdish and brushtray (on the washstand, together), pitcher and night article (on the floor, separate).
the articles of clothing on a chair, removed his
of clothing, took from beneath the bolster at the head of the bed a folded long
white nightshirt, inserted his head and arms into the proper apertures of the
nightshirt, removed a pillow from the head to the foot of the bed, prepared the
bedlinen accordingly and entered the bed.
With circumspection, as invariably when entering an abode (his own or not his own): with solicitude, the snakespiral springs of the mattress being old, the brass quoits and pendent viper radii loose and tremulous under stress and strain: prudently, as entering a lair or ambush of lust or adders: lightly, the less to disturb: reverently, the bed of conception and |6of6| birth, of consummation of marriage and |6of6| breach of marriage, of sleep|6, and6| of death.
What did his limbs|7,7| when gradually extended|7,7| encounter?
New clean bedlinen, additional odours, the presence of a human form, female, hers, the imprint of a human form, male, not his, some crumbs, some flakes of potted meat, recooked, which he removed.
To reflect that each one who enters
imagines himself to
be the first to enter whereas he is always the last
term of a preceding
series even if the first term of a succeeding one, each imagining himself to
be first, last, only and
whereasº he is neither first nor last nor
only nor alone |3in a series
originating in and
What preceding series?
Assuming Mulvey to be the first term of his series, Penrose, Bartell d'Arcy, professor Goodwin, Julius Mastiansky, John Henry Menton, Father Bernard Corrigan, a farmer at the Royal Dublin Society's Horse Show, Maggot O'Reilly, Matthew Dillon, Valentine Blake Dillon (Lord Mayor of Dublin), Christopher Callinan, Lenehan, an Italian organgrinder, an unknown gentleman in the Gaiety Theatre, Benjamin Dollard, Simon Dedalus, Andrew (Pisser) Burke, Joseph Cuffe, Wisdom Hely, Alderman John Hooper, Dr |6|aJames Francisa|6| Brady, Father Sebastian of Mount Argus, a bootblack at the General Post Officeº, |6Edward Hugh (8E.8)6| (Blazes) Boylan |3and so each and so on |ato no last terma|3|.
What were his reflections concerning the last member of this series and |6last late6| occupant of the bed?
Why |6for the observer6| |6this last quality impressionability in addition to vigour, corporal proportion and commercial ability6|?
Because he had observed with augmenting frequency in the preceding members of the same series the same concupiscence, inflammably transmitted,º first with alarm, then with understanding, then with desire, finally with fatigue, with |3alternate alternating3| symptoms of |8epicene8| comprehension and apprehension.
With what antagonistic sentiments were his subsequent reflections affected?
Envy, jealousy, abnegation, equanimity.
Of a bodily and mental male organism specially adapted for the
superincumbent posture of energetic human copulation |3and energetic
piston and cylinder movement3| necessary for the complete satisfaction of a constant but not acute concupiscence resident in a bodily and mental female organism|8,8| passive but not obtuse.
Because a nature full and volatile|7,7| in |8her its8| free state, was alternately the agent and reagent of attraction. Because attraction between |8agents and reagents agent(s) and reagent(s)º8| at all instants varied, with inverse proportion of increase and decrease, with incessant circular extension and radial reentrance. Because the controlled contemplation of the fluctuation of attraction produced, if desired, a fluctuation of pleasure.

From outrage (matrimony) to outrage (adultery) there arose nought but outrage (copulation) yet the matrimonial violator of the matrimonially violated had not been outraged by the adulterous violator of the adulterously violated.3|
What retribution, if any?
Assassination, never|3, as two wrongs did not make one right3|. Duel by combat, no. Divorce, not |3yet now3|. |3Exposure by mechanical artifice (automatic bed) or individual testimony (concealed |aoculara| witnesses), not yet.3| |3Suit for3| |3Damages damages3| by legal influence |4or simulation of assault with evidence of injuries sustained (selfinflicted)4|, not impossibly.

|3By what reflections did he|7, a conscious reactor against the void of incertitude,7| justify to himself his sentiments?
The preordained frangibility of the
intangibility of the
thing in itself: |4the
disproportiona| between the
selfprolonginga| tension of
the thing proposed to be done and the selfabbreviating
relaxation of the thing done:4| the fallaciously
inferred debility of the female:ºa| the muscularity of the male: the variations of ethical codes: |6the natural grammatical transition |aby inversion involving no alteration of sensea| of |aa an aorista| preterite proposition (parsed as |amasculinea| subject, monosyllabic |7onomatopoeic onomatopœic7| transitive verb and with direct |afemininea| object) from the active voice into a its correlative |aaorista| preterite proposition (parsed as |afemininea| subject, auxiliary verb and quasimonosyllabic |8onomatopoeic onomatopœic8| past participle with complementary masculine agent) in the passive voice:6| |4the continued product of of generations seminators by generation: the continual produce production of semen by distillation:4| the futility of triumph or |4protestation protest4| or vindication: |7the inanity of extolled virtue: the lethargy of |8solid nescient8| matter:7| the apathy of the stars.3|

The visible signs of |3satisfaction antesatisfaction3|?
An approximate erection: a solicitous adversion: a gradual elevation: a tentative revelation:º a silent contemplation.
He kissed the
plump mellow yellow smellow melons of
her rump, on
each plump melonous hemisphere, in their mellow yellow furrow, with obscure
prolonged provocative melonsmellonous osculation.
The visible signs of postsatisfaction?
A silent contemplation: a tentative velation: a gradual abasement: a solicitous aversion: a proximate erection.
What followed this silent action?
Somnolent invocation, less somnolent recognition, incipient excitation, catechetical interrogation.
With what modifications did the narrator reply to this |6interrogations interrogation6|(5.?º5)
Negative: he omitted to mention the clandestine correspondence between Martha Clifford and Henry Flower, the public altercation at, in and in the vicinity of the licensed premises of Bernard Kiernan and Co, Limited, 8, 9 and 10 Little Britain street, the erotic provocation and response thereto caused by the exhibitionism of Gertrude (Gerty), surname unknown. Positive: he included mention of a performance by Mrs Bandmann Palmer of Leah at the Gaiety Theatre, |646 |8to, 47, 48,8| 496| South |8Anne King8| street, an invitation to supper at Wynn's (Murphy's) Hotel(err,ºerr) 35, 36 and 37 Lower Abbey street, |8a volume of peccaminous pornographical tendency entituled Sweets of Sin, |aanonymousºa| author a gentlemanº of fashion,8| a |atemporarya| concussion caused by a falsely calculated movement in the course of a postcenal gymnastic display, the victim (since completely recovered) being Stephen Dedalus, professor and author, eldest surviving son of Simon Dedalus, of no fixed occupation|8, an aeronautical feat executed by him (narrator) in the presence of a witness, the professor and author aforesaid, with promptitude of decision and gymnastic flexibility8|.
Was the narration otherwise unaltered by modifications?
Which event or person emerged as the salient point of his narration?
Stephen Dedalus, professor and author.
What limitations of activity |3and inhibitions of conjugal rights3| were perceived by listener and narrator concerning themselves during the course of this intermittent and increasingly |3more3| laconic narration?
By the listener a limitation of fertility inasmuch as
had6| been celebrated
after the 18th anniversary of her birth (8 September 1870),
8 October, and
consummated on the same
with female issue born 15 June 1889, having been anticipatorily consummated
on the 10 September of the same year and complete carnal intercourse, with
ejaculation of semen within the
taken place 5 weeks previous, viz,º 27
18936|, to the birth
on 29 December
18936| of second (and
only male) issue, deceased 9 January
aged 11 days, there remained a period of
106| years, 5 months
and 18 days during which carnal intercourse had been incomplete, without
ejaculation of semen within the natural female organ. By the narrator a limitation of activity, mental and
corporal, inasmuch as complete mental intercourse between himself and the listener had not taken place since the consummation of puberty, indicated by catamenic hemorrhage, of the female issue of narrator and listener, 15 September 1903, there remained a period of 9 months and 1 day during which,º in consequence of a preestablished natural comprehension in incomprehension between the consummated females (listener and issue), complete corporal liberty of action had been circumscribed.
By various reiterated |6feminine6| interrogation concerning the |6masculine6| destination whither, the place where, the time at which, the duration for which, the object with which in the case of temporary absences, projected or effected.
What moved visibly above the listener's and the narrator's invisible thoughts?
Listener(err:,ºerr) S.E. by E.:º Narrator(err,ºerr) N.W. by W.:º on the |653° |753th 53rd7|6| |3parallel3| of latitude, N.,º and |66° 6th6| |3meridian3| of longitude, W.:º at an angle of 45° to the terrestrial equator.
In what state of rest or motion?
At rest relatively to themselves and to each other. In motion being each and both carried westward, forward and rereward respectively, by the proper perpetual motion of the earth through everchanging tracks of neverchanging space.
In what posture?
Listener: reclined semilaterally, left, left hand under head, right leg
extended in a straight line and resting on left leg, flexed, in the attitude of
recumbent, big with seed. Narrator:
laterally, left, with right and left legs flexed, the
thumb of the right hand resting on the bridge of the nose,
in the attitude
