There have been increasing interests in techno-poetics and posthuman aesthetics in recent literary studies. This work harnesses this critical energy and re-reads Ulysses as a work that embodies this posthuman ethos and explores its affiliation with technology and mechanical movements of language. This essay attempts to articulate Ulysses’s machine-like qualities using Deleuze and Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus as a theoretical framework. Just like Deleuze and Guattari’s desiring-machine, Ulysses is a mechanical body with a peculiar awareness of the possibilities of language in duplicating, reproducing, and even transforming and redistributing the real. Ulysses-machine keeps deferring the moment when one voice, one language, or one perspective becomes a dominant agency. Ulysses-machine also enables new connections between bodies (biological, mechanical, and textual) through its mechanical production and indifferent productions and juxtapositions of multiple perspectives. In so doing, Joyce’s language and characters embody the posthuman ethics of becoming machine-like.
