just to clarify: those nirvana songs are not my suggestion for an edgy, alternative soundtrack to ulysses— merely pointing out some similarities (implying: kurt cobain read joyce (?)).
it would be unfortunate if you were to listen to nirvana when reading ulysses. truly unfortunate.

nirvana — serve the servants

He went over to it, held it in his hands awhile, feeling its coolness, smelling the clammy slaver of the lather in which the brush was stuck. So I carried the boat of incense then at Clongowes. I am another now and yet the same. A servant too. A server of a servant.”

episode 1(Telemachus) of Ulysses


Chew your meat for you
Pass it back and forth
In a passionate kiss
From my mouth to yours
I like you

nirvana — drain you

 ”the sun shines for you he said the day we were lying among the rhododendrons on Howth head in the grey tweed suit and his straw hat i the day I got him to
propose to me yes first I gave him the bit of seedcake out of my mouth and
it was leapyear like now yes 16 years ago my God after that long kiss I near
lost my breath yes he said I was a flower of the mountain yes so we are
flowers all a womans body yes that was one true thing he said in his life and
the sun shines for you today yes that was why I liked him because I saw he understood or felt what a woman is and I knew I could always get round him and I gave him all the pleasure I could leading him on till he asked me to say yes and I wouldnt answer first only looked out over the sea and the sky I was thinking of so many things he didnt know”

"By an epiphany he meant a sudden spiritual manifestation, whether in the vulgarity of speech or of gesture or in a memorable phase of the mind itself. He believed that it was for the man of letters to record these epiphanies with extreme care, seeing that they themselves are the most delicate and evanescent of moments. He told Cranly that the clock of the Ballast Office was capable of an epiphany. …’I will pass it time after time… It is only an item in the catalogue of Dublin’s street furniture. Then all at once I see it and I know at once what it is: epiphany… Imagine my glimpses at that clock as the gropings of a spiritual eye which seeks to adjust its vision to an exact focus. The moment the focus is reached the object is epiphanised… After the analysis which discovers the second quality [symmetry, following wholeness] the mind makes the only possible synthesis and discovers the third quality [claritas or radiance]. This is the moment which I call epiphany. First we recognise that the object is oneintegral thing, then we recognise that it is an organised composite structure, a thing in fact: finally, when the relation of the parts is exquisite, when the parts are adjusted to the special point, we recognise that it is that thing which it is. Its soul, its whatness, leaps to us from the vestment of its appearance. The soul of the commonest object, the structure of which is so adjusted, seems to us radiant. The object achieves its epiphany.”
