Leopold Bloom Leopold Bloom, fictional character, the Odysseus figure whose wanderings through Dublin during one hour period on Jform the central action of James Joyce ’s Ulysses ().

Bloom is curious, decent, pacific, and somewhat timid. As the central figure to James Joyce's Ulysses, Leopold Bloom is the most celebrated character in modern fiction.

From the clues scattered throughout Ulysses, Costello painstakingly reconstructs Bloom's life up to Jand then goes on to create the post Bloom, the man of whom Joyce says : Peter Costello.

Ulysses, a novel by James Joyce, is a literary peregrination of Dublin that takes place on one day, June 16during which a host of Dubliners, some invented and many who once existed, come within the cynosure of the Joycean Odysseus, Leopold Bloom/5.

Bloom is introduced to the reader as a man of appetites: Mr Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and fowls. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liverslices fried with crustcrumbs, fried hencods' roes. Leopold Bloom Character Analysis Leopold Bloom The first impression that one has of Leopold Bloom, Joyce's modern equivalent of Ulysses and also Joyce's Wandering Jew, is that Bloom is as much of an outsider in Dublin as his prototypes were in their peregrinations through various foreign countries.

Characters Leopold Bloom Leopold Bloom functions as a sort of Everyman—a bourgeois Odysseus for the twentieth century. At the same time, the novel’s depiction of his personality is one of the most detailed in all literature. This book, then, seems to be for and about the deceased Rudy Bloom, by whom Leopold and Molly are constantly troubled.

The pedantry of Bloom’s Child’s Guide has apparently done little to steer him through his ten-year mourning period—unsurprising in context of “Ithaca”’s mockery of catechistic benefit, with its long winded, unhelpful ‘answers.’.

Throughout the book, Bloom's appetites are directing his thoughts. Walking around Dublin, he gets taken in by the smells of baker's and butcher's shops. It has been said that we readers know more about Leopold Bloom than any other character in the history of literature.

Ulysses, novel by Irish writer James Joyce, first published in book form in Stylistically dense and exhilarating, it is generally regarded as a masterpiece and has been the subject of numerous volumes of commentary and analysis.

Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's epic poem the Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between the poem and the novel, with structural correspondences between the characters and experiences of Leopold Bloom and Odysseus, Molly Bloom and Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus and Telemachus, in addition to Author: James Joyce.

Leopold Bloom In Brief. Joyce continued the story of Stephen Dedalus in Ulysses, but his persona had exhausted its potential. He needed a more adult protagonist, someone open to registers of experience that Stephen could not accommodate.

He thought about calling Dubliners by the name Ulysses in Dublin, but the idea grew from a story in Dubliners into a "short book" into the vast novel that he began in Ulysses chronicles the passage of Leopold Bloom through Dublin during an ordinary day, 16 June (the day of Joyce's first date with his future wife, Nora Barnacle)/5().
