Ulysses in Focus

Michael Groden

University Press of Florida

This chapter narrates book's author's first encounter and fascination with Ulysses and a lifelong obsession with this work. Looking at the author's initial encounter with Ulysses, the first draft of his life with Joyce's novel, reveals several possible reasons why he bonded strongly with the novel. Other novels and art works appealed to some of his aesthetic, emotional, and psychological needs, but Ulysses satisfied many more of them, both in his formative years and in later years.

Keywords:   novel reading, emotional needs, aesthetics, Ulysses, James Joyce, Leopold Bloom
