Bloom starts his Odyssee and absorbed in his thoughts he
wanders through Dublin. Most of the symbols you'll
be able to pick out easily: Henry Flower (Lotus-flowers)
, addiction (Gambling, even the Church), Oriental Tea Company,
the drug store. (Which reminds him to buy soap so he can have a bath: he has to attend a funeral).
This chapter also has the famous 'bloomism' on the Throw Away horse.
Some people say that the paper and the soap refer to
Ulysses's sword and shield.
