Example text

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. Sadly he notes the handwriting on the letter to Molly: it is Boylan’s (Molly’s lover). He goes into the bedroom and gives his wife her mail. 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. Corny Kelleher, the undertaker, seeks commendation for the smoothness of the proceedings.

Molly smells something burning, and Bloom rushes off to rescue the kidney. He eats his breakfast in the kitchen and now reads Milly’s letter carefully. Milly is learning photography at Mullingar. She mentions the young student, Bannon, referred to by the young man bathing (p. 18/26). Milly was fifteen yesterday, 15 June. Bloom recalls her being born, the midwife, then his son Rudy who didn’t live and who would now have been eleven. 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.
