This paper examines, in extreme detail, the "Sirens" episode in James Joyce's epic Ulysses. The author explores the following areas: The episode's place within the whole, Joyce's intent, themes, literary structure, and Bloom's character and tendencies. Attention is paid to Joyce's use of musical motifs (fugue, canon etc) and many quotes from the novel are included.
From the Paper:"James Joyce has proven himself to be something of a narrative chameleon in terms of the styles that he chooses to employ in his writing. In his telling of the story of Ulysses, the only constant is the fact that the narrative style changes from episode to episode. The beginning of the novel appears to be straightforward, filled with easily identifiable interior monologues and descriptions. Yet as the story progresses, the reader finds that these all-important Joycean agents of the story become increasingly difficult to follow and attribute to any particular character. Each episode takes on its own unique tone and style, making the task of the reader far more difficult in terms of comprehension."
