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.

    History, Stephen said, is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.
    Text: 
    Depicted herein is the clash between visions of a theory, or philosophy, of progressive history and a Modernist conception of a more chaotic theory of history. See, for example, the ninth thesis of Walter Benjamin's "Theses on the Philosophy of History," which may be found here: http://pages.ucsd.edu/~rfrank/class_web/ES-200A/Week%202/benjamin_ps.pdf Here, at the critical crystallization of Stephen's thoughts on the matter, it's worth recalling that it was Haines' casual comment that "it seems history is to blame" has triggered most of Stephen's thinking in Nestor.

    A woman too brought Parnell low
    Text: 
    This refers to Irish-nationalist Charles Stewart Parnell's affair with Katherine O'Shea, wife of Captain William O'Shea, an Irish soldier and Member of Parliament. Captain O'Shea had not divorced his wife because she was expecting a large inheritance. When Captain O'Shea finally filed for divorce in 1889, the ensuing trial revealed the affair and the fact that Parnell had fathered three of Katherine's children. The divorce scandal severely damaged Parnell's reputation and caused the Catholic church to condemn his immorality.

    Text: 
    Stephen gently suggests that the hatred of unscrupulous merchants should be directed against the merchants themselves, not against a race
