In Joycean Arcana: Ulysses and the Tarot de Marseille, Matthew Schultz proposes a new framework for exploring the complex characters and relationships in James Joyce’s Ulysses. By situating Joyce within the wider circles of occult modernism, Schultz builds upon the widely-accepted Homeric framework of Ulysses to show how the Odyssey as both a divinatory tool and an allegory for the journey of the soul may further illuminate Joyce’s 20th-century masterwork. Pairing each of the 22 Major Arcana of the Tarot de Marseille with a character from Ulysses, Schultz charts a new constellation of experiences within the novel that open up innovative readings and deepen our appreciation for well-established interpretations.
