Omar Khayyam in Monto: a reading of a passage from James Joyce's Ulysses. Carole Brown.
Neophilologus 68 (1984) 6, pp. 623-636

Readers of James Joyce's Ulysses have found Stephen's disquisition ongesture and his subsequent illustration of Omar Khayyam's bread and winerather curious and none too lucid. Given the speaker's state of inebriation, the time of day (or, rather, night) and the locality - both in terms of Dublins topography and on the Homeric level -. this lack of lucidity is perhaps not surprising.
