... and Bloom/Shakespeare parallels, too.  Not for nothing
Stephen/Hamlet is presented as the "son" of Bloom/Shakespeare. And, at
the most exciting ending of the Second Chapter, in Bloom's eyes the
image of Stephen generates or conjures that of Bloom's lost child, Rudy,
who appears as if he were not the little baby of eleven months he was
when he died, but a boy of eleven - the same age Shakespeare's  son,
Hamnet, was when he died.
