This time, though, I spent some real time on it, having also read Dubliners and Portrait and Ellmann's magnificent biography.
Stephen Daedalus is much less annoying and pious here than in Portrait. Of course, he's drunk a great deal of the time here, too.
Found "The Oxen of the Sun" section deeply annoying.
Found the "Circle" playlet to be magnificent.
