Gaze in Your Omphalos

In this installment of Blooms & Barnacles, Kelly and Dermot engage in some good, old-fashioned navel gazing. Discussion topics include working class life in Edwardian Dublin, the poetry of Algernon Swinburne the perils of childbirth during the same period, gothic horror, whether Adam and Eve had bellybuttons, and why Kelly thinks people in antiquity had predominantly outie bellybuttons. They also get to the bottom of what exactly the heck an omphalos is and why everyone keeps talking about them.

Nacheinander and Nebeneinander

Nacheinander and Nebeneinander

Ineluctable Modalities

Ineluctable modality of the podcast! A discussion of the first paragraph of "Proteus," in which Kelly and Dermot try to make sense of Stephen's untethered inner monologue. We discuss Aristotle's theory of vision, Bishop George's Berkeley's mistrust of sense perception, an interpretation of a famous meme, who Jakob Boehme was and what he meant by "signature of all things." This episode will leave you with a pleasing sense of superiority over your friends.

Proteus

The time has come for Blooms & Barnacles to tackle Ulysses' third episode - "Proteus"! This is Ulysses' first "difficult" episode - jam-packed with multiple languages and obscure references. This week's podcast gives an overview of many of the themes found in "Proteus," including its connection to The Odyssey, the influence of esoteric doctrines on the text and Joyce's love of writing in multiple languages. With guest star, Emma the cat.

Proteus

A Shout in the Street

Blooms and Barnacles' series on Mr. Deasy and "Nestor" comes to a close with a discussion of the old headmaster's biased views of women's negative impact on history. The relative culpability of four woman accused of causing history's great evils is explored, along with what exactly Stephen means when he refers to God as a "shout in the street."

A Shout in the Street

The Nightmare of History

Kelly and Dermot deconstruct the nightmare of history shared by the Irish and the Jews alike. We further explore the intricacies of Mr. Deasy's bigotry and what it tells us about what life was like in 1900's Dublin. Other topics covered include one possible source of Joyce's hatred of Gogarty, the correlation of antisemitism and nationalism and the legend of the Wandering Jew and its influence on Ulysses.

The Nightmare of History

Perviest Breakfast

Per vias rectas! Mr. Deasy's origins - revealed! Kelly and Dermot dive into Joyce's real life acquaintances and experiences that inspired the gruff headmaster Mr. Deasy in Ulysses' second episode, "Nestor." Topics covered include why Mr. Deasy is so concerned about foot and mouth disease, the relative rebelliousness of voting in favor of the Union and why Mr. Deasy seems to be unaware of his own history, even though he's so proud of it.

Croppies Lie Down

This week, Kelly and Dermot explain the nightmarish history tucked into Stephen's terse rebuttal of Mr. Deasy's weak grasp of Irish history. The passage covered can be found on p. 31 of Kelly's edition of Ulysses (1990 Vintage International). Topics covered include the history of the Orange Order, the Battle of the Diamond, the Planters' Covenant, the power of copyright law over sectarianism, and how all these issues still affect us today.

Big Words Which Make Us So Unhappy

History is the art of Nestor, so let's immerse ourselves in the nightmare of history, at least the bits covered on p. 31 of Ulysses. Learn about Stephen's hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia.Mr. Deasy tries to teach Stephen a history, but (spoiler alert) he doesn't know much about history. Topics covered include Daniel O'Connell, the Orange lodges, the Famine and the Fenians. This episode covers some heavy stuff, but learning new things will make you feel like the woman in this picture.
