Illustrations to Finnegans Wake
Has anyone pointed out that your HCE looks a lot like Leopold Bloom... very curious but Great! On a side note; I always thought the dreamer was Bloom so perhaps that's why your illustration reminds me of him.
You’re the first person to mention it, James! He’s not supposed to be Bloom exactly, but he’s definitely modelled on him. Bloom and HCE are very similar characters, I think, inasmuch as Ulysses and Finnegans Wake are very similar books. In part one HCE is at is Bloomiest, but later on, maybe he’ll change.
