MLA Citation
Richards, Thomas Karr. "Provisional Fixity in James Joyce's 'Proteus'." James Joyce Quarterly 20.4 (1983): 385-98.

Richards considers previous reading about the characters of Ulysses as problematic, suggesting that coherent readings of characters are problematic. In “Proteus,” Richards sees the existence of both idealist and empirical notions of identity as proof that Ulysses refuses definitive statements about its characters.
By closely reading the first five paragraphs against prevailing definitive statements about Stephen, Richards offers “provisional fixity” as ways in which Joyce misleads readers. In following Stephen’s thought, Richards concludes that ambiguity and disjointedness remain as the most prevalent features of Stephen’s mind and suggests that the interpreters read different philosophical discourse as Stephen’s own.
