"Sirens": The Fair Copy

This page of “Sirens” is taken from the “fair copy” manuscript of Ulysses—a term used to describe manuscripts created for presentation, rendered in legible handwriting. Joyce prepared this particular manuscript in order to sell Ulysses in installments to the collector John Quinn.
