1Urbane, to comfort them, the quaker librarian purred:


2
2And we have, have we not, those priceless pages of Wilhelm Meister. A
3

4

18Our young Irish bards, John Eglinton censured, have yet to create a
44
19 figure which the world will set beside Saxon Shakespeare's Hamlet though
45
20 I admire him, as old Ben did, on this side idolatry.

48Clergymen's discussions of the
24 historicity of Jesus. Art has to reveal to us
49 ideas, formless spiritual essences.
25 The supreme question about a work of art
50 is out of how deep a life does it
26 spring. The painting of Gustave Moreau is
51 the painting of ideas. The
27 deepest poetry of Hamlet,⧽ Hamlet, Shelley, the words of Hamlet
52 bring our minds
28 into contact with the eternal wisdom, Plato's world of
53 ideas. All the rest is
29 the speculation of schoolboys for schoolboys.

74
19Mr Best entered, tall, young, mild, light. He bore in his hand with
75
20 grace a notebook, new, large, clean, bright.


76
21That model schoolboy, Stephen said, would find Hamlet's musings
22 about
77 the afterlife of⸢(B) the afterlife of(B)⸣ his princely soul, the improbable, insignificant and
78
23 undramatic monologue, as shallow as Plato's.


79
24John Eglinton, frowning, said, waxing wroth:


80
25Upon my word it makes my blood boil to hear anyone compare Aristotle
81
26 with Plato.


82
27Which of the two, Stephen asked, would have banished ⸢(B)[Shakespeare]Shakespeare

33 Blake's buttocks into eternity of which this vegetable world is but a shadow.
89
34 Hold to the now, the here, through which all future plunges to the past.


90
35Mr Best came forward, amiable, towards his colleague.


91
36Haines is gone, he said.


92
1Is he?


93
2I was showing him Jubainville's book. He's quite enthusiastic, don't you
94
3 know, about Hyde's Lovesongs of Connacht. I couldn't bring him in to
95
4 hear the discussion. He's gone to Gill's to buy it.


96
5
Bound thee forth, my booklet, quick

97

To greet the callous public,

98
7

99
8
In lean unlovely English.


100
9The peatsmoke is going to his head, John Eglinton opined.


101
10We feel in England. Penitent thief. Gone. I smoked his baccy. Green
102
11 twinkling stone. An emerald set in the ring of the sea.


103
12People do not know how dangerous lovesongs can be, the auric egg of
104
13 Russell ⸢(B)[said]said warned warned (B)⸣ [said]said warned warned occultly. The movements which work revolutions
14 in the
105 world are born out of the dreams and visions in a peasant's heart on
15 the
106 hillside. For them the earth is not an exploitable ground but the living
107
16 mother. The rarefied air of the academy and the arena produce the
108
17 sixshilling novel, the musichall song. France produces the finest flower of
109
18 corruption in Mallarmé but the desirable life is revealed only to the poor of
110
19 heart, the life of Homer's Phaeacians.


111
20From these words Mr Best turned an unoffending face to Stephen.


112
21Mallarmé, don't you know, he said, has written those wonderful prose
113
22 poems Stephen MacKenna used to read to me in Paris. The one about
114
23 Hamlet. He says: il se promène, lisant au livre de lui‐même, don't you
115
24know, reading the book of himself. He describes Hamlet given in a
25 French
116 town, don't you know, a provincial town. They advertised it.


117
26His free hand graciously wrote tiny signs in air.

124
33 of view. Hamlet ou ...


125
1The absentminded beggar, Stephen ended.


126
2John Eglinton laughed.


127
3Yes, I suppose it would be, he said. Excellent people, no doubt, but
128
4 distressingly shortsighted in some matters.


129
5Sumptuous and stagnant exaggeration of murder.


130
6A deathsman of the soul Robert Greene called him, Stephen said. Not for
131
7 nothing was he a butcher's son, wielding the sledded poleaxe and spitting in
132
8 his palms. Nine lives are taken off for his dad's⧽dad's father's father's dad's⧽dad's father's father's one. Our

141
17He will have it that Hamlet is a ghoststory, John Eglinton said for Mr
142
18 Best's behoof. Like the fat boy in Pickwick he wants to make our flesh
143
19 creep.


144
20
List!  List! O list! 


145
21My flesh hears him⧼,⧽,: creeping, hears.


146
22

147
23What is a ghost? Stephen said with tingling energy. One who has faded
148
24 into impalpability through death, through absence, through change of
149
25 manners. Elizabethan London lay as far from Stratford as corrupt Paris
150
26 lies from virgin Dublin. Who is the ⸢4[ghost,]ghost, ghost from limbo patrum, ghost from limbo patrum, 4⸣ [ghost,]ghost, ghost from limbo patrum, ghost from limbo patrum,

159
2Shakespeare has left the huguenot's house in Silver street and walks by
160

182
29 impatiently.


183
30Art thou there, truepenny?

31Interesting only to the parish clerk. I mean, we have the plays. I mean

216 She died, for literature at least, before she was born.


217
30She died, Stephen retorted, sixtyseven years after she was born. She saw

226

4 of it as quickly and as best he could.

436
16The benign forehead of the quaker librarian enkindled rosily with
437
17 hope.


438
18I hope Mr Dedalus will work out his theory for the enlightenment of the
439
19 public. And we ought to mention another Irish commentator, Mr George
440
20Bernard Shaw. Nor should we forget
⸢6Mr George
440
20Bernard Shaw. Nor should we forget 6⸣
Mr Frank Harris. His articles on
441
21 Shakespeare in the Saturday Review ⧼are⧽are were surely brilliant. Oddly
22 enough
442 he too draws for us an unhappy relation with the dark lady of the
23 sonnets.
443 The favoured rival is William Herbert, earl of Pembroke. I own
24 that if the
444 poet ⸢(B)[is to]is to must must (B)⸣ [is to]is to must must be rejected such a rejection would seem
25 more in harmony with –
445what shall I say? – our notions of what ought not

450
31That may be too, Stephen said. There's a saying of Goethe's which Mr
451
32 Magee likes to quote. Beware of what you wish for in youth because you
452
33 willwill get it in middle life. Why does he send to one who is a buonaroba, a
34 bay
453 where all men ride, a maid of honour with a scandalous girlhood, a
35 lordling
454 to woo for him? He was himself a lord of language and had made
36 himself a
455 coistrel gentleman and he had written Romeo and Juliet. Why?
1 Belief in
456 himself has been untimely killed. He was overborne in a cornfield
2first (a
457 ryefield, I should say) and he will never be a victor in his own eyes
3after nor
458play victoriously the game of laugh and lie down. Assumed
4 dongiovannism
459 will not save him. No later undoing will undo the first
5 undoing. The tusk of
