Has anyone ever attempted to compile a list of the physical appearance of the characters in Joyce's novel? For example Stephen Dadalus is rather scruffy (Bohemian) and has a bushy moustache,- he he mentioned as adjusting it several times. Has Bloom one ? - most men did at the time but is it mentioned ? are Spectacles ever mentioned ? I ask because I am wanting to make some illustrations and I can imagine howls of protest if I get anything wrong !

Thanks for the link, but it says very little, if anything, about peoples appearances.
Read the book? It's called 'research', and will help pass the time on these cold dark evenings.

Very amusing. Yes I've read the book, have you? I've also spoken to several people who have also read it and found a lot of uncertainty on this question.
Stephen would have had glasses.
Leo would be of a dark complexion. At 38 he'd still have most of his hair.
