Lesson 1 What Women Really Think of Men

Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It was first
serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March
1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety in Paris by
Sylvia Beach on 2 February 1922, Joyce’s 40th birthday. It is considered
to be one of the most important works of modernist literature,[1] and
has been called “a demonstration and summation of the entire
movement”.[2] According to Declan Kiberd, “Before Joyce, no writer of
fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking.”[3]


At thekickoff for his postelectionvictory lap in Cincinnati this
month,Donald J. Trump bluntly told men, “Hate to tell you,” but women,
“generallyspeaking, they’re better than you are.”

Ulysses chronicles the peripatetic appointments and encounters of
Leopold Bloom in Dublin in the course of an ordinary day, 16 June
1904.[4][5] Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of
Homer’s epic poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of
parallels between the poem and the novel, with structural
correspondences between the characters and experiences of Leopold Bloom
and Odysseus, Molly Bloom and Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus and
Telemachus, in addition to events and themes of the early twentieth
century context of modernism, Dublin, and Ireland’s relationship to
Britain. The novel imitates registers of centuries of English literature
and is highly allusive.

Ulysses is approximately 265,000 words in length[6] and is divided
into eighteen episodes. Since publication, the book has attracted
controversy and scrutiny, ranging from early obscenity trials to
protracted textual “Joyce Wars”. Ulysses’ stream-of-consciousness
technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose — full of puns,
parodies, and allusions — as well as its rich characterisation and broad
humour, have led it to be regarded as one of the greatest literary works
ever written. Joyce fans worldwide now celebrate 16 June as Bloomsday.

toletmenoff the hook. When society writes off men as irredeemable, we
all lose.

Joyce divided Ulysses into 18 episodes. At first glance much of the book
may appear unstructured and chaotic; Joyce once said that he had “put in
so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for
centuries arguing over what I meant”, which would earn the novel
immortality.[17] The two schemata which Stuart Gilbert and Herbert
Gorman released after publication to defend Joyce from the obscenity
accusations made the links to the Odyssey clear, and also explained the
work’s internal structure.

Every episode of Ulysses has a theme, technique and correspondence
between its characters and those of the Odyssey. The original text did
not include these episode titles and the correspondences; instead, they
originate from the Linati and Gilbert schemata. Joyce referred to the
episodes by their Homeric titles in his letters. He took the
idiosyncratic rendering of some of the titles, e.g. “Nausikaa” and the
“Telemachiad” from Victor Bérard’s two-volume Les Phéniciens et
l’Odyssée which he consulted in 1918 in the Zentralbibliothek Zürich.

“because my husband is one, too.” She said she disliked both

It is 8 a.m. Buck Mulligan, a boisterous medical student, calls Stephen
Dedalus (a young writer encountered as the principal subject of A
Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man) up to the roof of the Sandycove
Martello tower where they both live. There is tension between Stephen
and Mulligan, stemming from a cruel remark Stephen has overheard
Mulligan making about his recently deceased mother, May Dedalus, and
from the fact that Mulligan has invited an English student, Haines, to
stay with them. The three men eat breakfast and walk to the shore, where
Mulligan demands from Stephen the key to the tower and a loan.
Departing, Stephen declares that he will not return to the tower
tonight, as Mulligan, the “usurper”, has taken it over.

Stephen is teaching a history class on the victories of Pyrrhus of
Epirus. After class, one student, Cyril Sargent, stays behind so that
Stephen can show him how to do a set of arithmetic exercises. Stephen
looks at the ugly face of Sargent and tries to imagine Sargent’s
mother’s love for him. Stephen then visits school headmaster Garrett
Deasy, from whom he collects his pay and a letter to take to a newspaper
office for printing. The two discuss Irish history and the role of Jews
in the economy. As Stephen leaves, Deasy said that Ireland has “never
persecuted the Jews” because the country “never let them in”. This
episode is the source of some of the novel’s most famous lines, such as
Dedalus’s claim that “history is a nightmare from which I am trying to
awake” and that God is “a shout in the street.”

The persistence of sexism wasn’t usually

Stephen finds his way to Sandymount Strand and mopes around for some
time, mulling various philosophical concepts, his family, his life as a
student in Paris, and his mother’s death. As Stephen reminisces and
ponders, he lies down among some rocks, watches a couple and a dog,
scribbles some ideas for poetry, picks his nose and urinates behind a
rock. This chapter is characterised by a stream of consciousness
narrative style that changes focus wildly. Stephen’s education is
reflected in the many obscure references and foreign phrases employed in
this episode, which have earned it a reputation for being one of the
book’s most difficult chapters.

The narrative shifts abruptly. The time is again 8 am, but the action
has moved across the city and to the second protagonist of the book,
Leopold Bloom, a part-Jewish advertising canvasser. The episode opens
with the famous line, ‘Mr. Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner
organs of beasts and fowls.’ Bloom, after starting to prepare breakfast,
decides to walk to a butcher to buy a pork kidney. Returning home, he
prepares breakfast and brings it with the mail to his wife Molly as she
lounges in bed. One of the letters is from her concert manager Blazes
Boylan, with whom Molly is having an affair. Bloom is aware that Molly
will welcome Boylan into her bed later that day, and is tormented by the
thought. Bloom reads a letter from their daughter Milly Bloom, who tells
him about her progress in the photography business in Mullingar. The
episode closes with Bloom reading a magazine named Matcham’s
Masterstroke by Mr. Philip Beaufoy, and defecating in the outhouse.

Bloom makes his way to Westland Row post office where he receives a love
letter from one ‘Martha Clifford’ addressed to his pseudonym, ‘Henry
Flower’. He meets an acquaintance, and while they chat, Bloom attempts
to ogle a woman wearing stockings, but is prevented by a passing tram.
Next, he reads the letter and tears up the envelope in an alley. He
wanders into a Catholic church service and muses on theology. The priest
has the letters I.N.R.I. or I.H.S. on his back; Molly had told Bloom
that they meant I have sinned or I have suffered, and Iron nails ran
in.[18] He goes to a chemist where he buys a bar of lemon soap. He
then meets another acquaintance, Bantam Lyons, who mistakenly takes him
to be offering a racing tip for the horse Throwaway. Finally, Bloom
heads towards the baths.

The episode begins with Bloom entering a funeral carriage with three
others, including Stephen’s father. They drive to Paddy Dignam’s
funeral, making small talk on the way. The carriage passes both Stephen
and Blazes Boylan. There is discussion of various forms of death and
burial, and Bloom is preoccupied by thoughts of his dead son, Rudy, and
the suicide of his own father. They enter the chapel into the service
and subsequently leave with the coffin cart. Bloom sees a mysterious man
wearing a mackintosh during the burial. Bloom continues to reflect upon
death, but at the end of the episode rejects morbid thoughts to embrace
‘warm fullblooded life’.

Although initially encouraged by the editor, he is unsuccessful. Stephen
arrives bringing Deasy’s letter about ‘foot and mouth’ disease, but
Stephen and Bloom do not meet. Stephen leads the editor and others to a
pub, relating an anecdote on the way about ‘two Dublin vestals’. The
episode is broken into short segments by newspaper-style headlines, and
is characterised by an abundance of rhetorical figures and devices.
