Annotations to James Joyce's Ulysses/Wandering Rocks/243



dernier cri     (French) latest fashion; last word.[1]

charming soubrette     (Errata) When this phrase occurred earlier in this episode at 241.10, 220.17 and 223.27-28, soubrette was not italicized. Gabler (1984) de-italicizes it here. See also 502.16, where the same font style is used for charming and soubrette.

soubrette     (French) a female servant or attendant, especially a mischievous or cheeky one in an operetta, theatrical comedy or pantomime.


  1. Gifford (1988) 285.
    Dernier cri.
