>>6395441 on the one hand recognizing the contrast between homer's epic journey and joyce's minute detailing of one man's day is a crux to understanding the theme of ulysses, but on the other if you focus on that too much you lose sight of the whole thing all together and turn a great literary work into a needlessly complex, inartistic puzzle
i would say he's right. i remember taking a class on Joyce when i was an undergrad at Columbia, and our very esteemed, well respected professor didn't dwell too deeply on the Odyssean allusions, and only used it to augment what was going on in the text itself. to believe that to understand the book one needs to track it alongside the Odyssey is to miss the point entirely, and be a poor reader besides.
