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.

    Text: 
    Stephen and Mulligan are friends, yet there's a tension between them. Stephen is an aspiring writer, while Mulligan is a medical student who also writes (mostly humorous works, it seems; he's modeled on Joyce's acquaintance Oliver St. John Gogarty, an actual Irish poet). There's tension between the two over their acceptance into Dublin's literary circle, in part because Stephen sees Mulligan as betraying Ireland by playing to what the English want.

    Thanks, old chap, he cried briskly. That will do nicely. Switch off the current, will you?

    Jorn Barger's interpretation: Mulligan is thanking God ("old chap") for the miracle of the shrill whistles answering from nowhere just in time for his Mass parody.

    Mulligan comes from the old gaelic surname O'Maolagain, which in turn comes from maol, meaning bald or tonsured.

    Reference to Saint John Chrysostom, nicknamed "the golden-mouthed" for his speaking ability; Stephen links Mulligan's glibness to his gold-capped teeth
