Time, History, and Memory in James Joyce's Ulysses

2012, BA, Kent State University, College of Arts and Sciences / Department of English.
James Joyce wrote Ulysses during a period when time and history carried political importance, especially in Ireland. This study examines the imposition of Greenwich Mean Time on Dublin, Ireland, and the forces that have controlled Ireland's history, namely England and the Catholic Church. By studying Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom, one witnesses the temporal and historical struggles taking place within individual characters in Joyce's 1904 Dublin. While time and history create obstacles for Joyce's characters, Stephen and Bloom use their active memories as creative forces to help regain their autonomy and identity.
