Re: Aba

I am with you dear Presta. Every focus is on a single element, Stephen's mind,the impulses and fantasies first for the reality of his experience and then to forge these in the smithy of his soul. That is how Joyce describes it in the concluding chapter. I have enjoyed doing the series and my many thanks to you for getting vying so much attention to details. This was an enlightening experience for me as well.

Aba

Oh, I love this, Aba. You have told it so well. I keep thinking about the storyline, '...he was happy...', and the addition of the girl only added to that feeling; it was in essence, to me, an extension of his (Stephen's) feelings. I wonder if Joyce simply didn't care to expound on more detail in the way the chronology of the story is revealed, or if it was semi-intentional, focusing on the other elements instead, either way with the ending is the same regarding how the reader views Stephen. So insightful. Oh, and a beautiful passage you chose to illustrate for us the story. Thank you, again, dear Aba!

I am stuck on thinking about the flame on the girl's cheek and I see myself in that same situation.

Standing in the water, dreaming dreams writing a poem or story in her mind. Trying to resolve something or just enjoying the moments of solitude.

For me it would have been a stain of annoyance for being disturbed, of being intruded upon. Many times I have felt the need for my alnoe times and as I got older I would find times...driving to and from work was my greatest pleasure and I did not want anyone in the car with me.

Just my take on that scene so beautifully described.

Your explanation makes a lot of sense to me.
