Molly Bloom
Molly Bloom, the eponymous heroine of James Joyce's world famous novel Ulysses, lies in bed, thinking about her husband, her meeting with Boylan, her past, her hopes... Among myriad other things, she suspects Bloom of having an affair, she thinks of woman's lot in the games of courting and mating, she thinks of her lovers, and longs for a glamorous life. She thinks of beauty and ugliness. She thinks of her past life in Gibraltar and laments the drabness of her present. She thinks about her health and her daughter. She muses about Stephen. Her thoughts turn to Rudy and Bloom. She thinks of humiliating her husband, a clock strikes, and she recalls the time on Howth head when she and Bloom first made love.
