This study investigates how a path to death overlaps with the imagery of the birth canal in “Hades” of the sixth chapter of James Joyce’s Ulysses. “Hades” begins with Bloom riding in a carriage to attend Dignam’s funeral. On the way to the church where the funeral will be held, he considers the vitality of life and its beginnings along with his thoughts on death. The carriage passes along a curved road, that is symbolically integrated with the birth canal. Women have usually been considered to be the agents of reproduction, while the role of males takes place in public areas. During his journey Bloom reevaluates women’s reproductive role as a valuable expression of vitality, although in Ireland generally women’s work is considered to be “unclean.” In this way, Joyce demonstrates that we are experiencing life and death together through memory and in daily life, as the road to death is closely connected to the way to birth.
