Telemachus begins with "Stately, plump Buck Mulligan" seen through third-person narration that approaches his own subjective position, though the narrative voice is quickly pulled into the orbit of the lean and hungry Stephen. The episode ends with the same person seen entirely through Stephen’s eyes, as a “Usurper” similar to Claudius and Antinous.
