* CovertPervert: Leopold does not come across as a pervert, but see the headings under ADateWithRosiePalms and the PeepingTom. Leopold is also a transvestite in the sense that SigmundFreud used the word.

'Averted Hard' is poor trope form.
* BombThrowingAnarchist: Averted hard. Leopold expresses anarchist views, but is unlike this trope being a mild mannered person. However, this trope may be connected to Leopold's fear of his views being discovered. If he were seen as this trope, he would be in peril.

I thought I found an interesting trope to add.
Added DiffLines:
* ThePeepingTom: One of Leopold's hallucinations in the Circe chapter involves him watching Molly and her boyfriend through a keyhole. It is not a real event, and in the hallucination the couple is willing. But, this qualifies as a zigzag of this trope because it implies Leopold does have a desire to be a peeping Tom.

i included the fan disservice trope because it is well known to contain sexual reference that are less than arousing.
Added DiffLines:
* FanDisservice: A court of law, exonerated this book of pornography charges because if you the entire work it will act as "not an aphrodisiac but an emetic." The court ruling is contained in the introductory section of most editions of the book. While it is somewhat explicit, the very frank and unusual way sexuality is presented would bother most readers who read the entire book. Individual passages taken out of context are sometimes viewed as fan service.

critical reception, judgement and recommedations are not allower on the main page.
Creator/JamesJoyce's ''Ulysses'', despite having a reputation for being [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible unreadable]] (though a degree in literature or a working knowledge of Myth/ClassicalMythology, Creator/WilliamShakespeare, modernism and Irish political history ''do'' help), is still widely-regarded as one of the most important {{novel}}s since ''Literature/DonQuixote'', influencing an immeasurable number of men and women in the writing field. Its [[BigNameFan Big Name Fans]] including the likes of authors as distinct from each other as Creator/StephenKing and Salman Rushdie; saying this book made an impact is [[CaptainObvious like saying water is wet]]. It was first published in serialized form from 1918 to 1920, then collected in book form and republished in 1922. The actual ''story'' can be jotted on the back of a matchbox. Taking place in a single day - June 16th 1904 - in [[TheCity Dublin]], ''Ulysses'' follows the daily routine of three people: young and jaded would-be artist Stephen Dedalus, passive outsider Leopold Bloom and his sensual, unfaithful wife Molly. As Stephen and Leopold wander the streets of Dublin, Molly lies in bed all day and cheats on her husband. Eventually, Leopold saves Stephen from a beating at the hands of British soldiers and invites him home to recuperate. Stephen visits his home, but declines to stay the night and Leopold joins Molly in bed.

The treat of the novel is in its style and the rendering of the characters in remarkable detail, often using their direct InnerMonologue, or having their style of thought influence the third-person perspective. Their meals, visits to the bathroom, work, affairs, prejudices, fantasies, are all recorded. ''Nothing'' is spared. Every chapter mimics, parallels and/or parodies a section of Creator/{{Homer}}'s ''[[Literature/TheOdyssey Odyssey]]'' (for example, Ulysses' battle with the Cyclops becomes the Jewish Leopold debating religion and politics with a raving, bigoted nationalist with a glass eye). Every chapter is also a literary experiment, where Joyce breaks every rule of novel writing. The book may seem like [[{{Doorstopper}} 700 pages]] of equal parts gibberish and blarney, but because of the strict thematic framework, it's perfectly possible to get your brain around it.

I thought it would be interestting to mention how a mild mannered anarchist like leopold seemed afraid of being connected to the bomb throwing anarchist.

* The first side of [[FiresignTheatre]]'s "How Can You Be In Two Places " ends with the character Ralph Spoilsport abruptly shifting into a rather peculiar gender-flipping rendition of the end of "Molly Bloom's Soliloquy".
