Hugh “Blazes” Boylan is a fictional character from James Joyce's novel Ulysses. He is the manager for Molly Bloom's upcoming concert in Belfast. Boylan is well known and well liked around town, but comes across as a rather sleazy individual, especially in regards to his attitudes toward women. Boylan has become interested in Molly, and they commence an affair of a sexual nature during the novel.
