Re: Joyce, Episode 68: A Trio of Dudes

“Across the page the symbols moved in grave morrice, in the mummery of their letters,
wearing quaint caps of squares and cubes. Give hands, traverse, bow to partner: so: imps
of fancy of the Moors. Gone too from the world, Averroes and Moses Maimonides, dark
men in mien and movement, flashing in their mocking mirrors the obscure soul of the
world, a darkness shining in brightness which brightness could not comprehend.”

Stephen dwells on ancient philosophers: Averroes, Moses Maimonides, Bruno.
