James Joyce

1882- 1941

Irish Writer


Irish writer and poet James Joyce is regarded as one of the important figures of modern literature. His relatively limited oeuvre includes such powerful works as The Dubliners (1914), A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Ulysses (1922).

Towards the end of his life, Joyce completed what is perhaps one of the most difficult novels in the English language, Finnegan's Wake (1939).
