I’m pleasantly surprised that my book graffiti proved so popular (see episode 1 part 1 here). 🙂 Since you all seem to enjoy this, here’s the rest of episode 1 (for more on Ulysses reading project, see Wandering Rocks):
“She bows her head to a voice that speaks to her loudly, her bonesetter, her medicineman; me she slights”– look, don’t take your self-loathing out on her, young man
“Bill, sir? she said, halting…”– poor thing, but she knows her sums
“Buck Mulligan sighed and having filled his mouth with a crust thickly buttered on both sides” — this scene makes me hungry
“Heart of my heart, were it more, / More would be laid at your feet” — More, I cannot wish you (Guys & Dolls)
“That reminds me, Haines said, rising, that I have to visit your national library today– well, la di da for you!
“Is this the day for your monthly wash, Kinch?– ouch!
“The unclean bard makes a point of washing once a month.” — we done had our bath in May! (Pete’s Dragon)
“I blow him out about you, Buck Mulligan said, and then you come along with your lousy leer and your gloomy jesuit jibes”— all of his effort wasted, huh
“From me, Kinch, he said”– yeah, like your aunt will give you money for him!
“How dare you, sir?”– such liberties!
“No, no Buck Mulligan shouted in pain. I’m not equal to Thomas Aquinas and the fiftyfive reasons he has made to prop it up. Wait till I have a few pints in me first.”– HA! Not before I’ve had my coffee
“this tower and these cliffs here remind me somehow of Elsinore”– as they should. thanks for the hint, J.J!
“He tugged swiftly at Stephen’s ashplant in farewell and, running forward to the brow of the cliff, fluttered his hands at his sides like fins or wings of one about to rise in the air, and chanted,” — i’m king of the world! (Titanic)
“O, Haines said, you have heard it before?/ –Three times a day, after meals, Stephen said drily.”– poor beleagered SD.
“A crazy queen, old and jealous. Kneel down before me.” — Queenie? (Black Adder)
“Stephen threw two pennies on the soft heap.” — wait! they owed the milkwoman 2p! way to gip an old lady!
