Il romanzo — di cui trovate di seguito una breve analisi e riassunto — narra le vicende di un uomo moderno alle prese con i problemi e le vicissitudini quotidiane, non il destino di un eroe. Stephen assomiglia alla figura di Telemaco, il figlio di Ulisse; Leopold Bloom, si identifica con Ulisse stesso e sua moglie, Molly, ci riporta alla figura di Penelope. Il lettore ne segue le vicende e si avvicina a questo uomo moderno che vive le sue numerose peregrinazioni quotidiane. Tra di essi, per esempio, la mancata sintonia con il giovane Stephen ed il tradimento subito da parte di sua moglie Molly.

Bloom leaves to talk with the merchant placing the ad. When Bloom returns with an agreement to place the ad for two months, the editor rejects it. Bloom walks through Dublin for a while, stopping to chat with Mrs. Breen, who mentions that Mina Purefoy is in labour.
He later has a cheese sandwich and a glass of wine at a pub. Bloom arrives, looking for a copy of an advertisement he had placed, and Buck shows up. Stephen and Buck leave to go to a pub as Bloom also departs. Boylan leaves with Lenehan, on his way to his assignation with Molly.
Bloom finds himself being cruelly mocked, largely for his Jewishness. He defends himself, and Cunningham rushes him out of the bar. After the visit to the Dignam family, Bloom, after a brief dalliance at the beach, goes to the National Maternity Hospital to check in on Mina. He finds Stephen and several of his friends, all somewhat drunk.
Bloom later finds him there. Stephen, very drunk by now, breaks a chandelier, and, while Bella threatens to call the police, he rushes out and gets into an altercation with a British soldier, who knocks him to the ground. There Bloom makes hot cocoa, and they talk. When Bloom suggests that Stephen stay the night, Stephen declines, and Bloom sees him out. Bloom then goes to bed with Molly; he describes his day to her and requests breakfast in bed.
The book also conjures up a densely realized Dublin, full of details, many of which are—presumably deliberately—either wrong or at least questionable. But all this merely forms a backdrop to an exploration of the inner workings of the mind, which refuses to acquiesce in the neatness and certainties of classical philosophy. Although the main strength of Ulysses lies in its depth of character portrayal and its breadth of humour, the book is most famous for its use of a variant of the interior monologue known as the stream-of-consciousness technique.
Joyce thereby sought to replicate the ways in which thought is often seemingly random and to illustrate that there is no possibility of a clear and straight way through life.
By doing so, he opened up a whole new way of writing fiction that recognized that the moral rules by which we might try to govern our lives are constantly at the mercy of accident and chance encounter, as well as the byroads of the mind. Whether this is a statement of a specifically Irish condition or of some more universal predicament is throughout held in a delicate balance, not least because Bloom is Jewish, and is thus an outsider even—or perhaps especially—in the city and country he regards as home.
Ulysses was excerpted in The Little Review in —20, at which time further publication of the book was banned, as the work was excoriated by authorities for being prurient and obscene. It was first published in book form in by Sylvia Beach , the proprietor of the Paris bookstore Shakespeare and Company.
There have since been other editions published, but scholars cannot agree on the authenticity of any one of them. An edition published in that supposedly corrected some 5, standing errors generated controversy because of the inclusion by its editors of passages not in the original text and because it allegedly introduced hundreds of new errors.
Most scholars regard Ulysses as a masterwork of Modernism , while others hail it as the pivotal point of Postmodernism.

Antes de que abandonaran la clase, Stephen les cuenta un complicado acertijo cuya respuesta es un zorro que entierra a su abuela bajo un arbusto. Mientras recuerda y reflexiona se acuesta sobre unas rocas y observa a una pareja que pasea con su perro.
