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.

    fox burying his grandmother under a hollybush
    Text: 
    The fox imagery references Stephen, who is cunning like a fox and has also recently buried his mother (not quite grandmother, as in the riddle).

    riddle
    Text: 
    The mystification of the pupils at Stephen's riddle reminds one of the riddle that Athy did not quite share with young Stephen in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, thereby bewildering that other once-upon-a-time young pupil.

    Sargent
    Text: 
    Gifford finds no source for the name Sargent. Perhaps it continues the military theme (i.e., "sergeant") begun in the history of Pyrrhus and echoing on in the battle-cries erupting from the hockey field as this episode plays out.
