This chapter surveys the impact of Joyce’s Ulysses in German-speaking countries from 1922, the year when the Shakespeare & Co. English original was published, to 1945, the end of the Second World War and the Nazi period. Particular emphasis is given to the history and reception of Georg Goyert’s 1927 translation of Ulysses and its reception by such German authors as Alfred Döblin, Hans Henny Jahnn, Kurt Tucholsky, Thomas Mann, and Hermann Broch. Further focus is placed on the early academic reception of Ulysses as well as the notorious essay by C. G. Jung and the negative criticisms of Ulysses by Catholic and Nazi literary critics.

Keywords:   James Joyce, James Joyce’s Ulysses, The Nazi reception of James Joyce, Thomas Mann and James Joyce, Hermann Broch and James Joyce, Hans Henny Jahnn and James Joyce, Alfred Döblin and James Joyce
