Homer, Hemingway, and Joyce

Proteus was Homer’s ‘Old Man Of The Sea’.
Hemingway’s ‘Old Man And The Sea’ could be considered to be a counter, a foil, or an accompaniment to Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’?
I don’t think it’s ever been looked at that way before.
Hemingway did admire Joyce and how well he wrote.
Wonder if he won the Pulitzer for it thanks to Joyce’s inspiration?
