Ulysses Titbit #1

The James Joyce Ulysses class that I will be teaching for ten weekly sessions at the Oakton College Emeritus program begins next Tuesday morning. I will be posting brief items of interest from the book on this blog starting today, until the class ends on December 1. These posts will be called Ulysses Titbits. Why Titbits? Well as we first encounter Leopold Bloom on the morning of June 16, 1904 home, at 7 Eccles Street, we learned that “he liked to read at stool.” Newspapers especially. And on that particular day, at stool, he happened to be reading, and later utilizing, a paper named Titbits.
