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.

    Dedalus
    Text: 
    Stephen's last name is similar to Daedalus, the architect of the minotaur's labyrinth in Greek myth. Ovid tells a story in which Daedalus is imprisoned by the king to prevent him from sharing the secrets of his labyrinth with anyone else. To escape, Daedalus fashions wings out of feathers and wax for himself and his son Icarus. During their escape flight Icarus becomes too excited about flying and soars high nearer the sun, which melts the wax in his wings and causes him to fall to his death.
