    Although the import of the Odyssey upon Ulysses has received a wide range of critical opinion, Ulysses is indeed Joyce's epic. Homer provides the underlying paradigm, used for the depiction of a very non-heroic day in an equally non-heroic world, with an "Odysseus-like" character who is very much an ordinary citizen.

    From a catalog of such modernists as Virginia Woolf, Gertrude Stein, Thomas Mann, Franz Kafka, Marcel Proust, Wallace Stevens, and William Faulkner, Ulysses is an enormous achievement, making Joyce the preeminent purveyor of high modernism.
