  • Jonathan Swift (1667-1745): an Anglo-Irish writer and satirist. When Swift took up his residence at Moor Park, he found there an eight-year-old girl. She was the daughter of a merchant named Edward Johnson, who had died young. Swift says that Esther Johnson was born on 18 March 1681 – she was later known as Stella and would feature largely in Swift's life. Later he was in love with Esther Vanhomrigh, whom he called "Vanessa". Since both his beloved girls carried the same name Esther they could be considered as twins

  • Ulysses 073.26 ff: "By Mosenthal it is. Rachel, is it? No. The scene he was always talking about where the old blind Abraham recognises the voice and puts his fingers on his face./ — Nathan’s voice! His son’s voice! I hear the voice of Nathan who left his father to die of grief and misery in my arms, who left the house of his father and left the God of his father." → the play is Mosenthal's Deborah; Nathan is a villainous anti-Semitic Jew, who importunes Leah
