Molly professionally known as Marion Tweedy, is a concert singer, and Boylan is to act as her impresario on a coming tour. Doyle, and ‘Love’s Old Sweet Song’. (These songs are to be much in Bloom’s mind and hers today) Munching, Molly points silently but requestingly Bloom picks up her underwear. ’ Bloom discovers the book under the bed. Molly finds the place she wants. The word ‘metempsychosis’ has baffled her. Bloom explains it—‘the transmigration of souls’, thereby introducing explicitly the theme of reincarnation implicitly present in the reproduction of Ulysses’s adventures in Leopold Bloom’s.

His own cup, a birthday gift from Milly, brings back memories of her girlhood. Bloom takes the breakfast tray into the bedroom. As Molly shifts, the bed brasses jingle again, appropriately accompanying the sensuous images of her ‘large soft bubs’ and her body-warmth. Seeing that Molly has opened her own letter in his absence (and the recollection of the torn envelope peeping from under the pillow is to torment him several times today), Bloom asks who it is from. ‘Boylan,’ she says. ’ Molly professionally known as Marion Tweedy, is a concert singer, and Boylan is to act as her impresario on a coming tour.
