Abstract

In this paper, the author discusses how semiotics, in conjunction with hermeneutics, can illuminate the structure of James Joyce's Ulysses as a literary text. First, I shall discuss how two important poet-critics evaluated Ulysses in terms of classical myths and literary precedents. in this way, I hope to indicate the strengths but also the limitations of traditional criticism. Second, I hope to demonstrate the function of the inter-text in the drama of Ulysses, Particularly with respect to the relationship between Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom.
