Silvio Benco Onjoyce and Trieste 1918
After that initiation, he wanted me to read what was already written of Ulysses. . . . He showed me the loose sheets on which he prepared the material of each episode, notes as to composition, quotations, references, ideas, essays in various styles. When the rough material was ready, he devoted himself to writing out the complete episode, and this he usually did in less than a month. Following this method, Ulysses had been begun in Trieste before the war, continued in Zurich, and now resumed in Trieste. . .
