Annotations to James Joyce's Ulysses/Wandering Rocks/243
dernier cri (French) latest fashion; last word.
charming soubrette (Errata) When this phrase occurred earlier in this episode at 241.10, 220.17 and 223.27-28, soubrette was not italicized. Gabler (1984) de-italicizes it here. See also 502.16, where the same font style is used for charming and soubrette.
soubrette (French) a female servant or attendant, especially a mischievous or cheeky one in an operetta, theatrical comedy or pantomime.
- Gifford (1988) 285.
