Joyce's Ulysses as National Epic: Epic Mimesis and the Political History of the

According to The Orange Grove, "Ungar argues that Joyce's Ulysses is the Irish national epic—a new national epic written at the moment a new nation, the Irish Free State, was being founded, and one that evades the potential constraints of the epic tradition in order to draw attention instead to what Ungar calls "the change required in Ireland's too formulaic self-definition." This is the first full-length study of how Ireland's accession to political sovereignty figures in the compositional design of Ulysses."
