Meet the Author

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (February 2, 1882 - January 13, 1941) was an Irish expatriate writer, widely considered to be one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. He is best known for his landmark novels "Ulysses" (1922) and "Finnegans Wake" (1939), the short story collection "Dubliners" (1914) and the semi-autobiographical novel "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" (1916).

Although his adult life was largely spent outside the country, Joyce's fictional universe is firmly rooted in Dublin and provide the settings and much of the subject matter for all his fiction. In particular, his tempestuous early relationship with the Irish Roman Catholic Church is reflected through a similar inner conflict in his recurrent alter ego Stephen Dedalus. As the result of his minute attentiveness to a personal locale and his self-imposed exile and influence throughout Europe, Joyce became simultaneously one of the most cosmopolitan and one of the most local of all the great English language writers.

    Book is not easy to understand, but it is worth your time on it!

    The book, which requires high cost and effort in reading, no wonder it has become "the Bible of modernism" and influenced the whole literary 20th century. A lot of tricks, play with the styles ... but the book opens, and will play only to those who really wanted to.
