Toad eyes

Of the many strange narrative devices in Ulysses, one of the strangest is a convention-violating interplay between the thoughts and words of the third-person narrator and those of the characters. In several of the novel's chapters, Joyce experiments with breaking down the wall of expectations segregating the teller of the tale from those whose stories he tells.
