Ulysses – Episode 10 (The Wandering Rocks)

Episode 10, which is right in the middle of the book, is known as The Wandering Rocks, which is an Odyssey reference, of course, as well as a reference to the overview of various characters going about their business, walking around Dublin. If Ulysses were a Baz Luhrmann film, this would be the sequence in which the camera zig-zag pans over the ensemble cast, giving quick snapshots of their random doings and conversations. I didn't like it, just as I don't like Baz Luhrmann's particular directing style. But I will plow on, and see if the next episode has anything more readable in it.

Next up: Episode 11 – Sirens
