Happy Bloomsday to you too!

 >(The connection, as if it were needed: on February 2, 1922, Ulysses was
 >published in Paris by Shakespeare and Company.)

Just a few other connections...

Chapter 9 of Ulysses is largely a discussion of Hamlet.  The
Stephen/Hamlet parallels run through the book.

In 1912 Joyce gave 12 lectures on Hamlet in English in Trieste.

One of Joyce's Trieste pupils, Ettore Schmitz, once asked Joyce what
"And brass eternal slave to mortal rage" in Sonnet 64 meant.  Joyce
replied that WS was thinking of German bands.

In England in 1932 Joyce visited places associated with WS.

On a trip to Denmark in 1936 Joyce visited Elsinore.

Bloomin' heck!

To be sure, there's a 20 CD complete text vocalized through the mouth so
there is (plus 90 page guide as well as that) available at 85 quid or in
real money 32 McCaffreys it is highly acclaimed d'ye follow me and is
reputed to enable even those as dim as a Toc-H lamp to jig to the tune
of the plot but I can't remember much more about it due to a current
surfeit of the Liffy juice and it's by some talking-book dot co. which
isn't I don't believe Shakespeare and Sunco of Paris and if you want to
know about the Toc-H lamp look it up yerself or so me Ma told me are ye
callin' me a Taig are ye?
