James Joyce: A Literary Reference

Overview

Veteran Joyce scholar and author A. Nicholas Fargnoli traces both the odyssey of Joyce's roaming life and the creative evolution of his work in this copiously illustrated, information-packed biographic reference. James Joyce was born in 1882 in Dublin, Ireland, a country that still only begrudgingly recognizes his artistic brilliance. Although for more than half his life he lived in Europe in self-exile, his canon-breaking works never ceased to revolve around the city of his birth—no matter how uncensored his ...

Overview

Veteran Joyce scholar and author A. Nicholas Fargnoli traces both the odyssey of Joyce's roaming life and the creative evolution of his work in this copiously illustrated, information-packed biographic reference. James Joyce was born in 1882 in Dublin, Ireland, a country that still only begrudgingly recognizes his artistic brilliance. Although for more than half his life he lived in Europe in self-exile, his canon-breaking works never ceased to revolve around the city of his birth—no matter how uncensored his portraits, how ambitious his literary experiments, or outre his linguistic games. As a writer, Joyce had mastered the English language in his early books, Dubliners and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, celebrated it in the notoriously banned Ulysses, and, some claim, finally tried to explode it in Finnegans Wake. Despite a rootless life spent sometimes in near-poverty, Joyce retained his inherent Irishness and absorbed everything from the foreign environments around him. An in-depth portrait of this truly amazing artist is covered here in an engaging array of excerpts from letters, reminiscences, book reviews, court papers, and manuscripts.
