Molly Bloom and the Comedy of Remarriage
Drawing upon Stanley Cavell’s concept of the comedy of remarriage and Alain Badiou’s event theory, this essay argues that, in James Joyce’s Ulysses, Molly Bloom’s love-event is necessarily missed the first time, but it is reasserted in a final repetition, after the initial misrecognition of infidelity.
