After using the word "falling" five times in a short paragraph, Joyce concludes the passage by employing the image in a reverse chiasmus:
"His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead."Joyce's major innovation, the stream-of-consciousness or interior monologue of a character, belongs to the world of rather than to the youthful work.

(The attack was formulated in an essay, "The Holy Office," which was turned down by the editor of a University College magazine.)The remainder of the summer and fall of 1904 saw Joyce's increasing love, both physical and spiritual, for Nora, and consequently he was totally honest with her about his own personal life, embarrassing as some of that might have been.
