This chapter discusses Richard Wagner and Arthur Schopenhauer, two individuals (a writer and philosopher, respectively) whom Joyce was deeply attached to. It looks at one of Wagner's works, Tristan und Isolde, which figures in the composition of Exiles. The story features the consequences of an adulterous love that found fertile ground. The discussion then looks at the connection of the works of Wagner and Schopenhauer to that of “A Painful Case.”
