Hi there Joseph...
I´d like to know which edition of Uysses you used for this article. Actually, I'm trying to find the parody of the Zarathustra Style in it. Would it be this part : "Therefore, everyman, look to that last end that is thy death and the dust that gripeth on every man that is born of woman for as he came naked forth from his mother's womb so naked shall he wend him at the last for to go as he came"?

Spirit of Vatican II

Penguin Study Edition.

No, what you quote is a parody of the medieval Mystery Play "Everyman".

Later in the same "Oxen of the Sun" chapter you'll find some nietzcheanizing: Deine kuh Trübsal melkest Du. Nun trinkst Du die süsse Milch des Euters. And Mulligan does a Zarathustra spoof in chapter 1.
