An analysis of the influence of Catholic Church ideology on Father Conmee in the "Wandering Rocks" episode of Ulysses.
The exhibit cites various forms of Catholic literature, including the Bible, a Papal decree, and a theological study by an Irish Jesuit, each of which contributed to Joyce's style in the composition of Conmee's thoughts.
By exploring some of the stylistic developments and correspondences in the “Oxen of the Sun” episode, this exhibit aims to elucidate how the episode not only reflects the themes of birth and life but also communicates a sense of death. Death is present not only in the overarching storyline of the birth of Mina’s baby but also in several of the individual prose styles in the episode.
