Blazes Boylan was getting up a musical in which Marion Bloom was to have the lead role. Here I depict her practicing Loves own Sweet Song before the arrival of Blazes. Leopold Bloom, her husband, was aware that there was more to the relationship than simply the musical but he avoided discussing it with some of the smart alleky Dubliners whom he met during the day. One chap openly asked him Whos getting it up? to which Bloom did not reply.
From the novel, Ulysses, by James Joyce. 16 x 12 inches
