But Bloom casts off the chill, attributing it to ‘morning mouth’. He turns his attention to the houses around him and the pleasing breakfast to come. Sunlight returns and a golden-haired girl runs past. Back home, Bloom finds the morning mail on the floor of the hall—a letter to himself from Milly, his daughter, a letter and a card for his wife.

Molly glancing at the envelope, puts the letter under the pillow.
He prefers the simplicity and solemnity of the vernacular Anglican Prayer Book, quoting, ‘I am the Resurrection and the Life’, but Bloom is preoccupied with something less dignified, that breaking-down of the heart’s pumping system which constitutes death. He is concerned with the physical finality of death: the idea of a general resurrection on the last day—‘every fellow mousing around for his liver and his lights and the rest of his traps’—does not move him.

Various memories of Milly’s girlhood recur, mingling with a slight apprehension about what her reference to the ‘young student’, Bannon, might mean in her now opening sex life.
