character in Joyce's Ulysses

Fishburn and Hughes: "The seemingly mock-heroic, yet still heroic, protagonist of James Joyce's Ulysses, whose peregrinations around Dublin are closely identified with the wanderings in the Mediterranean of the Homeric Odysseus (Ulysses).
Leopold Bloom's 'irreversible florin' is an allusion to the 'Ithaca' episode in Ulysses in which Bloom marks a florin with three notches on the milled edge before spending it in order to see whether it will come back to him. It does not (Ulysses, Harmondsworth, 617)." (27)
