Bloomsday! 01_bloomsday_2005


Today, as you may be aware, is Bloomsday! I thought that an extract from Ulysses would celebrate the occasion:

James Joyce wrote:
In ward wary the watcher hearing come that man mildhearted eft rising with swire ywimpled to him her gate wide undid. Lo, levin leaping lightens in eyeblink Ireland's westward welkin. Full she dread that God the Wreaker all mankind would fordo with water for his evil sins. Christ's rood made she on breastbone and him drew that he would rathe infare under her thatch. That man her will wotting worthful went in Horne's house.

Happy

Bloomsday

everyone!

Our national epic has yet to be written, Dr. Sigerson says. We are becoming important, it seems.

-- Force, hatred, history, all that. That's not life for men and women, insult and hatred. And everybody knows that it's the opposite of that that is really life.
-- What? Says Alf.
-- Love, says Bloom. I mean the opposite of hatred

I look rather fetching in my white, linen dress, don't I?

Why, I think it might in fact be just that!
