Title: James Joyce

James Joyce  (1882-1941)
  • James Joyce, Irish author, whose writings feature
    revolutionary innovations in prose techniques. He
    was one of the foremost literary figures of the
    20th century. Joyce is best known for his epic
    novel Ulysses (1922), which uses stream of
    consciousness, a literary technique that attempts
    to portray the natural and sometimes irrational
    flow of thoughts and sensations in a persons

  • 1900 Published, at age 18, a review of Ibsen's
    When We Dead Awaken in the London Fortnightly
    Review, which led to correspondence with Ibsen
  • 1902 Graduated from University College in Dublin
    and made the first of several stays in Paris
  • 1903 Returned to Dublin to visit his dying mother
    and met his future wife, Nora Barnacle
  • 1904 Left Dublin with Nora to live abroad for the
    rest of his life, returning to Ireland for only a
    few brief periods
  • 1907 Published his first book, Chamber Music, a
    collection of 36 poems
  • 1914 Published Dubliners after about eight years
    of battling with censorious publishers
  • 1916 Published A Portrait of the Artist as a
    Young Man, a semiautobiographical work which
    makes use of the stream-of-consciousness
    narrative style
  • 1922 Published Ulysses, a novel whose story of a
    day in the life of Leopold Bloom elevated its
    author to international renown
  • 1939 Published his last novel, Finnegan's Wake, a
    novel whose lackluster reception in the literary
    world left Joyce deeply disappointed
  • 1940 Moved from Paris to Zurich, where he spent
    the remainder of his life

Why read Joyce? Because in the artful eye of his
prose, in the artful lie of his fiction, Joyce is
reading us.
  • Joyces four most important works are
  • 1) Dubliners????,1914
  • 2) A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
  • ??????????,1916
  • 3) Ulysses????,1922
  • 4) Finnegans Wake??????,1939 .

  • My intention was to write a chapter of the
    moral history of my country and I chose Dublin
    for the scene because that city seemed to be the
    centre of paralysis. I have tried to present it
    to the indifferent public under its four aspects
    childhood, adolescence, maturity, and public
    life. The stories are arranged in this order.
    I have written in for the most part in a style of
    scrupulous meanness....

  • I will not serve that in which I no longer
    believe whether it call itself home, my
    fatherland or my church and I will try to
    express myself in some mode of life or art as
    freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for
    my defense the only arms I allow myself to use,
    silence, exile, and cunning.
