“Every life is in many days, day after day. We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants, old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-love, but always meeting ourselves.” ― James Joyce, Ulysses Ulysses (1922) by James Joyce tells the story of it's three central characters—Leopold Bloom, a Jewish advertisement salesman; Bloom's wife, Molly, a sensual and independent woman; and Stephen Dedalus, an arrogant young intellectual taken by Bloom under his wing—the modern equivalents of Ulysses (Odysseus), Penelope and Telemachus, respectively, from Homer’s epic poem Odyssey. The book observes Leopold Bloom as he goes from place to place in Dublin from 8 a.m. until 3 a.m. on June 16, 1904. The events of the novel loosely resemble Odysseus’s journey home after the Trojan War in Homer's epic.
