Equine faces

When Stephen thinks of "The oval equine faces, Temple, Buck Mulligan, Foxy Campbell, Lanternjaws," the references to people are clear enough but his purposes in mentioning them are obscure. Temple was one of the students at UCD (University College, Dublin) who companioned Stephen in Part V of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Buck Mulligan is his present companion. And Father Richard Campbell was one of his teachers at Belvedere College, whom he thinks of in Part IV of A Portrait as a jesuit "whom some of the boys called Lantern Jaws and others Foxy Campbell."
