    James Joyce, Ulysses, and the Construction of Jewish Identity: Culture, Biography, and 'The Jew' in Modernist Europe. by Neil R. Davison. When taken in context with James Joyce's grander design for it (a playful comparison to Homer's epic poem, The Odyssey), Ulysses gains complexity, irony, and dramatic intensity. Not only does Stephen Dedalus become all the more vivid because of his comparison to Telemachus, the son of Ulysses, King of Ithaca, in the Homeric epic.

    Joyce’s decision to make Bloom half Jewish, like nearly every facet of the tome, has been exegetically processed to oblivion, but there is a general consensus that it was not in any sense arbitrary.

    Description - James Joyce, Ulysses, and the Construction of Jewish Identity by Neil R. Davison Representations of 'the Jew' have long been a topic of interest in Joyce studies. Neil Davison argues that Joyce's lifelong encounter with pseudo-scientific, religious and political discourse about 'the Jew' forms a unifying component of his career. James Joyce's Ulysses is probably the most famous-or notorious-novel published in the twentieth century. Its length and difficulty mean that readers often turn to critical studies to help them in getting the most out of it. But the vast quantity of secondary literature on the book poses problems for readers, who often don't know where to begin.
