Annotations to James Joyce's Ulysses/Telemachus/014
Annotations[edit | edit source]
014.05 dugs the mamma or the nipple of a female mammal.
014.08 cuckquean a woman who has an unfaithful husband. As a woman whose husband is dead is a widow, so a woman whose husband is a cuckold is a cuckquean.
014.18 Are you a medical student, sir? The milkwoman asks Mulligan if he is a medical student. He answers in the affirmative, claiming medical knowledge. Joyce has undermined this knowledge as recently as 006.24, when Mulligan incorrectly identifies the definition of GPI.
