Part 5: In Barney Kiernan's Pub

Bloom gets into an argument with the 'Citizen' which climaxes in mock-heroic battle, when Bloom makes a dignified retreat and his opponent flings a biscuit tin after him. This episode is narrated by an anonymous crony of the 'Citizen', an anti-Semitic Nationalist bigot. Repulsive as he is, he provides an opportunity for Bloom to show his true heroism by arguing against prejudice and preaching a doctrine of love and understanding. Dramatised by Robin Brooks.
