Re: Joyce, Episode 104: A Little Swearing

“Sally? Couldn’t he fly a bit higher than that, eh? And and and and tell us, Stephen, how is
uncle Si? O, weeping God, the things I married into! De boys up in de hayloft. The
drunken little costdrawer and his brother, the cornet player. Highly respectable gondoliers!
And skeweyed Walter sirring his father, no less! Sir. Yes, sir. No, sir. Jesus wept: and no
wonder, by Christ!

I pull the wheezy bell of their shuttered cottage: and wait. They take me for a dun, peer out
from a coign of vantage.

―It’s Stephen, sir.

―Let him in. Let Stephen in.

A bolt drawn back and Walter welcomes me.

―We thought you were someone else.

In Stephen’s mind, his father continues to mock his mother’s family, and Stephen visits his uncle’s cottage.
