Valery Larbaud was one of the first and the most enthusiastic of the writers who supported Joyce’s 'Ulysses.' He established himself as the first Joycean to recognise a structural correspondence between Ulysses and Joyce's first prose work Dubliners: "This is still the society of 'Dubliners' and the eighteen parts of Ulysses can provisionally be considered as eighteen tales with different aspects of the life of the Irish capital as their subjects."
