      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 9:40 pm on May 21, 2013 Permalink

        *as Molly* I wonder is That Fifty Shades of Grey book or three of them I think as smutty as they say?

    Interview with Stephen Dedalus (1914) 

    *as facilitator* Thanks to modern technosorcery, Opening Ulysses can compress a decade into a week, so if you’ve ever wondered what Stephen Dedalus did after he left Mr Bloom, you can ask him now.

    *as Stephen* I have flown and so has time. Ask me what you will.

    • Pat 1:08 am on May 11, 2013 Permalink

      I wonder, Stephen. What are your thoughts on the war in Europe?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 9:49 pm on May 12, 2013 Permalink

        *as Stephen* That I was right not to sign that petition for universal peace. See how much it changed?

    • Victoria 11:33 pm on May 19, 2013 Permalink

      How are your students these days?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 6:29 pm on May 20, 2013 Permalink

        *as Stephen* Slaughtering the English language, I’m glad to report.

    Interview with Stephen Dedalus (1904) 

    *as facilitator* Stephen Dedalus is here to answer your questions.

    *as Stephen* Make the questions worth answering.

    *as facilitator* Remember, you are getting paid.

    *as Stephen* Not enough.

    • Pat 8:02 pm on May 3, 2013 Permalink

      *as facilitator* are you disappointed you never appeared in Finnegans Wake?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 10:06 pm on May 5, 2013 Permalink

        *as Stephen* Why, but I am there, at least in spirit, with “dean of idlers . . . at Backlane Univarsity” in the tenth chapter, or so I’ve been told. Say what you will about my childish villanelle, I have written (and never will) write anything so confusing and confused as Finnegans Wake.

    • Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker 9:25 am on May 6, 2013 Permalink

      what Virág do you like?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 9:54 pm on May 8, 2013 Permalink

        *as Stephen* The green rose.

    • A Citizen 7:02 pm on May 6, 2013 Permalink

      If to the west lies the ‘real’ Ireland, to the east lies the ‘old enemy’, and to the south lies the continent, where do I end up if I take the train from Amiens Street?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 7:41 pm on May 18, 2013 Permalink

        *as Stephen* Wherever you get off.

    • Shaun Mac Irewick 7:59 pm on May 6, 2013 Permalink

      Tell me, young man, why must you always pee on the parade of progress? Your sneering cynicism encapsulates everything that is wrong with this generation.

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 7:48 pm on May 7, 2013 Permalink

        *as Stephen*

        Progress? I’ve yet to see it. As for my generation, it’s nothing to do with me, and if it were, I would hope to be everything your kind sees as wrong with it.

    • Kevin Schwartz 10:14 pm on May 6, 2013 Permalink

      *as facilitator* You are obviously extremely talented, but maybe not so focused. Do you feel you’ve “lived up to your potential”? What are some of your proudest artistic accomplishments?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 8:58 pm on May 9, 2013 Permalink

        *as Stephen* I am as focused as my stomach and poverty will allow me to be. More than most in this country. My proudest artistic accomplishment is myself and my refusal to serve.

    First Interview! 

    *as Leopold Bloom*

    Yes, well, I am . . . present as it were for questioning. Ask me.


    *as facilitator*

    Feel free to ask Mr Bloom any questions you may have and, if you wish, to slip into his character to answer.

    • Matt 7:52 pm on March 17, 2013 Permalink

      So Mr Bloom, what are your top 5 favourite organ meats?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 11:27 pm on March 17, 2013 Permalink

        *as Leopold Bloom*

        I like a thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liverslices fried with crustcrumbs, and most of all, I like grilled mutton kidneys which give to the palate a fine tang of faintly scented urine.

        If you would let me add a number six, fried hencods’ roes are fine as well.

    • Pat L 9:44 pm on March 17, 2013 Permalink

      So Mr Bloom, you seem concerned with the insides of things? But not their outsides?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 8:40 pm on March 22, 2013 Permalink

        *as Bloom*

        Outsides are fine, too. Only how it works. I want to see. Inside.

    • Pat L 7:18 pm on March 28, 2013 Permalink

      *as James Joyce*

      How do you feel about the way I told your story?

      • Elizabeth Kate Switaj 9:24 pm on April 1, 2013 Permalink

        *as Bloom* I must admit I am still trying, attempting to read it.
