NotesThe references in the title are obviously to the Greek poet Homer (author of The Iliad and The Odyssey) and to James Joyce's novel "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man". A famous poet who is blind is married to a younger woman who was one of his students. He believes she is being unfaithful and her truthful rebuttal of his accusations won't make him change his mind. Finally he decides to kill himself.
