Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of
lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressinggown,
ungirdled, was sustained gently behind him on the mild morning air. He
held the bowl aloft and intoned:

--Introibo ad altare Dei.

In common with hundreds of other shameless opportunists around the world
we are happy to mark the 100th anniversary of the day on which James
Joyce's Ulysses is set by drawing your attention to a few of the online
Joycean resources catalogued in Humbul:

-- The Brazen Head : a James Joyce Public House
"The brazen head is a vital site for Joyce enthusiasts and scholars. It
is remarkably comprehensive and its content is imaginatively presented
and easy to navigate."

-- Hypermedia Joyce studies : electronic journal of Joycean scholarship
"Such topics, as Joyce and money, Joyce and Postmodernism, as well as
criticisms of Ulysses and Finnegan's Wake, are discussed within the
volumes of Hypermedia Joyce Studies. Bibliographies are provided for
those seeking further research. The Bibliography is divided into three
areas: hypermedia (for those needing online editions of Joyce's work),
video, and audio."

-- James Joyce scholars' collection
"...makes freely available online, electronic editions of some 16
(out-of-print) studies of James Joyce. The selected works compiled in the
James Joyce Scholars' Collection are considered invaluable to those who
wish to study the works of perhaps the greatest novelist of the 20th

-- I foresee, Mr Deasy said, that you will not remain here very long at
this work. You were not born to be a teacher, I think. Perhaps I am wrong.
-- A learner rather, Stephen said.
And here what will you learn more?
Mr Deasy shook his head.
-- Who knows? he said. To learn one must be humble.

-- The International James Joyce Foundation
"The International James Joyce Foundation has created this website for
those interested in the writer, as well as interested in events and news
about symposiums and conventions. Within this website you will find links
to further James Joyce resources, upcoming events, and the James Joyce
Resource Centre online."

-- Hiberno-English archive
"The aim of the Hiberno-English Archive is to build an archive of
Hiberno-English words, phrases, sayings, and idioms, collected and
collated by Professor Terence Patrick Dolan of University College Dublin."

-- The James Joyce centre
"...The site features a biography and information on places in Dublin
relevant to Joyce's life. There is information on regular events,
readings, conferences and festivals held by the Centre."

and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I
put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my
breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said
yes I will Yes.
