Episode 5 – Lotus Eaters
The pages being read are near the end of Chapter 5.
It starts about 3 pages from the end.
Look for a long paragraph beginning…..
‘He stood up’.
In that paragraph we start with the sentence beginning
‘ He passed, discreetly buttoning,…..’
and we end about 2 pages later with the one sentence paragraph,
‘ He strolled out of the shop…in his left hand.’
The Ulysses Foreign Language Translation Recording Project was devised by Val O’Donnell on behalf of
F.W Sweny Ltd.,1 Lincoln Place, Dublin 2 – where Leopold Bloom bought his bar of lemon soap on ‘Bloomsday’ 1904.
The recordings have been reformatted for the web by Dáithí O Broin
Dáithí’s work can be seen at http://daithiobroin.ie
