Ulysses in Focus

“Ulysses” in Progress treats James Joyce's novel as a monument. Not unusually for a manuscript study from 1977, this work was researched and written in ignorance of anything that might be called “theory,” and its facts were gathered and presented as part of an argument that took for granted the unity of the published Ulysses and the secondary position of the prepublication documents in relation to the finished book. In arguing that Joyce wrote Ulysses in three stages—early, middle, and last—”Ulysses” in Progress adopted a resolutely teleological model of Joyce's writing. The Ulysses avant-texte, and especially that of the “Cyclops” episode, offers a gold mine of material for these purposes.
