AMANDA SIGLER

Abstract

Joyce develops a sustained theoretical inquiry of circulated errors in Ulysses by offering up Leopold Bloom as an ideal reader of mistakes. Placed in context with the Little Review, however, these errors assume a different shape. Typographical mistakes, excised passages, faulty advertisements, and inflammatory letters to the editor substantially altered first readers’ experiences of the text. Returning to the archive for a thorough investigation of the errors originally surrounding Ulysses in its periodical context, this article reveals the extent to which Joyce’s text recasts the world of errors as a world of possibilities.
