Ulysses under the Light of Archive

In the Poetics of the archive, it states that “we (archive) receive their contents as fragments or only as citations in later works”. It is similar to Joyce’s Ulysses. The Ulysses contains many episodes which are quite fragmented stories. It seems like they are in different settings and have different thematic focuses.

It looks like they are not connected to each other. However, all these stories actually represent Ulysses by James Joyce which main theme is exploration of human condition in Dublin in 1904. These fragmented stories refer to the Joyes’s inner depth feelings which gives meaning to the novel.
