Did you enjoy that, gentle first-time reader? Did you have fun? I hope so, because that's it for the kiddie rides. Scylla and Charybdis is the first climax of Ulysses, the first summing-up, a tentative balancing of accounts. Next we pass through the central carousel-carousal that is Wandering Rocks, slowly rotating on its axis: time to catch your breath while it turns through 90 degrees, 180, 270, 360, and then you step off and, what?

Hold on tight! Here goes!
