This paper explains the relationship of the two of the main protagonists in James Joyce's "Ulysses"---the young, lapsed Irish Catholic Stephen Dedalus and the older,lapsed Jew Leopold Bloom. The author points out that the story evolves through a kind of stream-of-consciousness narrative style; whereby, the reader receives an impressionist, fragmented sense of what life is like in a single day in Dublin. The paper suggests that, by using the protagonists Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus to suggest a modern Odysseus story, Joyce demonstrates the relevance of myth, even to modern life, albeit a myth that must be reconfigured to suit the modern era. The paper includes the quota passage.
