    Presume you are speaking in jest here ? - since of course Joyce nicked little if anything from Homer. Usually Joyce the magpie purloined and plundered from everywhere and anywhere including from the great plunderer Shakespeare but always sufficient to weave a garment richly allusional to provide a blanket of hommage to touch and unpick with pleasure and wonder.

    Attribution may not always be sufficient - since the charge is not so much that of "passing off" so much as it is for using it in the first place - length of quote may also be relevant.
