Re: Joyce, Episode76: Folds and Fillibegs

“—For the moment, no, Stephen answered.
Mr Deasy laughed with rich delight, putting back his
savingsbox.
—I knew you couldn’t, he said joyously. But one day
you must feel it. We are a generous people but we must
also be just.
—I fear those big words, Stephen said, which make us
so unhappy.
Mr Deasy stared sternly for some moments over the
mantelpiece at the shapely bulk of a man in tartan filibegs:
Albert Edward, prince of Wales.”

Mr. Deasy and Stephen continue their exchange, and Frank unpacks the tartan from a painting of a prince.

Mr. Deasy, the “major prick”.
