Your browser window is currently too small; please widen it or switch to a device with a wider viewing screen. Due to dissertation time constraints and browser space constraints, book pages aren't currently available on phones, some tablets, or at narrower browser sizes. Please use the site with a higher resolution tablet (and/or try flipping from vertical to horizontal orientation), laptop, or desktop computer to read Ulysses on this site for now. I'm hoping to address tablet design by Summer 2015.

    I hear the ruin of all space, shattered glass and toppling masonry, and time one livid final flame.

    A Blakean vision destined to recur in Stephen's day, here in apocalyptic combination with the fall of Troy and of local autonomy to the encroaching Roman Empire (e.g., Pyrrhus). See also passage in Proteus http://www.infiniteulysses.com/ulysses/43 and, most dramatically, in Circe http://www.infiniteulysses.com/ulysses/542
