Calypso 0032

Similarly to early in the chapter, when the demanding cat is sort of in dialogue with Bloom’s thinking about the demands of his wife, as he comes back into the kitchen after getting his orders from Molly, he is greeted again by the noisy feline (“Mgnknao!”) demanding a share in his breakfast.  Another quick nod to Bloom’s Judaism:  he thinks he might have a cat who keeps kosher.

I like how Bloom is framed by the black doorway as he returns to the kitchen, almost as though he is returning to his rightful place from Calypso’s cave.
