James Joyce (1882-1941)

Monday will be the 110th anniversary of the original Bloomsday — June 16, 1904.  To mark the occasion, we offer two puzzles featuring quotations from Joyce’s Ulysses.

The quote in the first two-rack puzzle is a fragment of perhaps the single most famous passage in the novel.  The quote in the second two-rack puzzle is less well-known.  Enjoy!

(Note:  Diagram 1-2 involves a wraparound or hidden adjacency:  Even though they do not appear to be adjacent, T is adjacent to D, K is adjacent to G, and P is adjacent to J — in each case, on the hidden back side of the Quipto(R) rack.)
