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.

    A very sort of classic, traditional, stereotypical way of describing the female body/female love interest.. think love sonnets etc. This is interesting. Really clashes with the other language here about the sirens? Horrid, picking nails etc (not exactly soft and beautiful) What is the meaning of this contrast? Surely it is intentional...

    Text: 
    Simply a cool way of saying re-dressing, or ending a sexual/seductive situation.. perhaps not actually re-dressing but the garter snapping back in place implies an ending of sexual possibility, the garter is back and not to be seen/removed

    Joyce is trying to evoke a wide range of musical instruments, one per line. This would be a viola or violin.
