From Gerry Carlin and Mair Evans, notes on Penelope


Joyce wrote two schemata of Ulysses for his friends Carlo Linati and Stuart Gilbert; they are now known as the Linati Schema and the Gilbert Schema, respectively. Each schema outlines the fundamental structure of the novel. The schemata were not intended for widespread distribution, but after they were published, they became an important part of scholars' and readers' conversations about Ulysses. The following section combines the two schemata to give a collated version for Penelope.

Time (Linati):
