James Joyce - Author

About the Author

James Joyce was born on 2 February 1882, the eldest of ten surviving children. He was educated by Jesuits at Clogowes Wood College and at Belvedere College (just up the road from the Centre) before going on to University College, then located on St Stephen’s Green, where he studied modern languages. After he graduated from university, Joyce went to Paris, ostensibly to study medicine, and was recalled to Dublin in April 1903 because of the illness and subsequent death of his mother. He stayed in Ireland until 1904, and in June that year he met Nora Barncale, the Galway woman who was to become his partner and later his wife.

 

Joyce’s last and perhaps most challenging work, Finnegans Wake was published on 4 May 1939. It was immediately listed as “the book of the week” in the UK and the USA.  Joyce died at the age of fifty-nine, on 13 January 1941, at 2 a.m., in Schwesterhaus vom Roten Kreuz in Zurich where he and his family had been given asylum . He is buried in Fluntern cemetary, Zurich.

Dubliners was completed in 1905, but a series of British and Irish publishers and printers found it offensive and immoral, and it was suppressed.The book finally came out in London in 1914, just as Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man began to appear in the journal Egoist under the auspices of Ezra Pound.The first three stories in Dubliners might be incidents from a draft of Portrait of the Artist, and many of the characters who figure in Ulysses have their first appearance here, but this is not a book of interest only because of its relationship to Joyce's life and mature work.It is one of the greatest story collections in the English language--an unflinching, brilliant, often tragic portrait of early twentieth-century Dublin.The book, which begins and ends with a death, moves from stories of my childhood through tales of public life.Its larger purpose, Joyce said, was as a moral history of Ireland.

Estela de Finnegan

Estela de Finnegan

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 07/07/2018

Ninguna obra de la literatura universal ha sido tan incomprendida y vilipendiada por falsas premisas y fatuos enconos debido a su supuesta ilegibilidad como "e;Finnegans Wake"e; de James Joyce, aunque en un primer momento esta postura seria explicable ya que el autor irlandes se propuso escribir novelas para ser estudiadas durante doscientos anos. Lo mismo se dijo del Ulises cuando en 1924 un grupo de notables espanoles la declararon intraducible. A diferencia de esos crticos e incluso de admiradores que no pudieron comprenderla, la traduccin de Juan Daz Victoria del primer captulo demuestra que Finnegans Wake no solo es traducible, sino perfectamente legible, obviamente con la ayuda de numerosos -aunque breves y esclarecedores- comentarios al pie, que nos permiten comprender la estructura onrica de la novela, "e;donde los personajes, los escenarios, los idiomas extranjeros y el lenguaje nativo se ven sometidos a una condicin de deriva casi involuntaria"e;. Finnegans Wake, ms que una obra narrativa, es un gran poema al que no le est vedado ningn recurso: meldico y desquiciante, tierno y nostlgico, obsceno y confesional; pero sobre todo es una extenuante aventura del lenguaje, la imaginacin y el conocimiento.

The Mookse and the Gripes

The Mookse and the Gripes

Author: James Joyce Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/06/2018

The Mooske and the Gripes is James Joyce's peculiar and hilarious re-telling of Aesop's ancient fable of `The Fox and the Grapes', as presented in Finnegans Wake (1939). This book consists of forty-six colour illustrations by Irish artist Thomas McNally that run alongside Joyce's text. Each illustration is based on a line from the fable; taken together, they help to interpret and illuminate the work. Almost eighty years on from the original publication, this illustrated edition of Joyce's fable offers to readers a comedic, much needed entry-point into Finnegans Wake, and to its appreciation. Although Joyce's novel is often described as one of the most impenetrable literary works ever written, there are great riches and humour beyond its difficult surface that everyone can enjoy. Reading through Joyce's fable alongside the illustrations, readers will be offered an immediate introduction to Finnegans Wake and to its sense of the fantastical that is so intrinsic a feature of Joyce's highly imaginative use of language. The book also contains an essay by McNally, providing further guidance to readers in their exploration of Joyce's masterwork.

Author: James Joyce, GP Editors Format: eBook Release Date: 23/05/2018

James Joyce was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses, a landmark work in which the episodes of Homers Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominent among these the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Chamber Music, all of which are included.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:James Joyce (2 February 1882 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the twentieth century. Joyces technical innovations in the art of the novel include an extensive use of interior monologue; he used a complex network of symbolic parallels drawn from the mythology, history, and literature, and created a unique language of invented words, puns, and allusions.James Joyce was born in Dublin, on February 2, 1882, as the son of John Stanislaus Joyce, an impoverished gentleman, who had failed in a distillery business and tried all kinds of professions, including politics and tax collecting. Joyces mother, Mary Jane Murray, was ten years younger than her husband. She was an accomplished pianist, whose life was dominated by the Roman Catholic Church. In spite of their poverty, the family struggled to maintain a solid middle-class facade.From the age of six, Joyce was educated by Jesuits at Clongowes Wood College, at Clane, and then at Belvedere College in Dublin (1893-97). In 1898 he entered the University College, Dublin. Joyces first publication was an essay on Ibsens play When We Dead Awaken. It appeared in the Fortnightly Review in 1900. At this time he also began writing lyric poems.After graduation in 1902, the twenty-year-old Joyce went to Paris, where he worked as a journalist, teacher and in other occupations under difficult financial conditions. He spent a year in France, returning when a telegram arrived saying his mother was dying. Not long after her death, Joyce was traveling again. He left Dublin in 1904 with Nora Barnacle, a chambermaid who he married in 1931.Joyce published Dubliners in 1914, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man in 1916, a play Exiles in 1918 and Ulysses in 1922. In 1907 Joyce had published a collection of poems, Chamber Music.At the outset of the First World War, Joyce moved with his family to Zrich. In Zrich Joyce started to develop the early chapters of Ulysses, which was first published in France because of censorship troubles in the Great Britain and the United States, where the book became legally available only in 1933. In March 1923 Joyce started his second major work, Finnegans Wake, suffering at the same time chronic eye troubles caused by glaucoma. The first segment of the novel appeared in Ford Madox Fords transatlantic review in April 1924, as part of what Joyce called Work in Progress. The final version was published in 1939.

Exiles

Exiles

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 18/04/2018

The only extant play by the great Irish novelist, Exiles is of interest both for its autobiographical content and for formal reasons. In the characters and their circumstances details of Joyce's life are evident. The main character, Richard Rowan, the moody, tormented writer who is at odds with both his wife and the parochial Irish society around him, is clearly a portrait of Joyce himself. The character of Rowan's wife, Bertha, is certainly influenced by Joyce's lover and later wife, Nora Barnacle, with whom he left Ireland and lived a seminomadic existence in Zurich, Rome, Trieste, and Paris. As in real life, the play depicts the couple with a young son and, like Joyce, Rowan has returned to Ireland because of his mother's illness and subsequent death.

Dubliners

Dubliners

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 04/04/2018

Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. The fifteen stories were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of the Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.The stories were written at the time when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They center on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character has a special moment of self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by children as protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity.

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 04/04/2018

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a semi-autobiographical novel by James Joyce, first serialized in The Egoist from 1914 to 1915 and published in book form in 1916. It depicts the formative years in the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and a pointed allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Daedalus.A Portrait is a key example of the Knstlerroman (an artist's bildungsroman) in English literature. Joyce's novel traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus as he begins to question and rebel against the Catholic and Irish conventions he has been brought up in. He finally leaves for Paris to pursue his calling as an artist. The work pioneers some of Joyce's modernist techniques that would later come to fruition in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. The Modern Library ranked Portrait as the third greatest English-language novel of the twentieth century.

Ulysses

Ulysses

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 21/03/2018

Banned in the United States until 1934 on account of its "e;pornographic"e; content, this controversial classic transforms a single day in Dublin into an experimental epic. James Joyce's psychological novel vividly re-creates the sights, sounds, smells, and voices of a June day in 1904 within a structure loosely based on Homer's Odyssey. Famed for the stream-of-consciousness technique that marked the beginning of modernist literature, the tale abounds in parodies, riddles, and sparkling wordplay. The long shadow it casts over subsequent novels has raised the suggestion that English-language fiction since 1922 has been a series of footnotes to Joyce's masterpiece.Few first editions generate more excitement among traders in rare books than Ulysses. Since the novel's debut, many experts have reinterpreted surviving drafts to produce revised texts, but this edition remains the one that Joyce himself reviewed and corrected prior to the initial publication. Thus, this volume represents the version truest to the author's vision.

Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark novel which perfected his stream of consciousness technique and combined nearly every literary device available in a modern re-telling of The Odyssey.

Joyce was born to a lower-middle class family in Dublin, where he excelled as a student at the Jesuit schools Clongowes and Belvedere, then at University College, Dublin. In his early twenties he emigrated permanently to continental Europe, living in Trieste, Paris and Zurich. Though most of his adult life was spent abroad, Joyce's fictional universe does not extend beyond Dublin, and is populated largely by characters who closely resemble family members, enemies and friends from his time there; Ulysses in particular is set with precision in the streets and alleyways of the city. Shortly after the publication of Ulysses he elucidated this preoccupation somewhat, saying, "e;For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world.

This third edition, newly revised and updated, includes comprehensive and all-new annotations (over 9,000 notes) by Joyce scholar Sam Slote, Trinity College, Dublin, and Marc A. Mamigonian and John Turner. A lively repository of literary allusion and colloquial realism, this dazzlingly innovative, ambitious novel is here presented in its 1939 version, which contains notable textual differences from the standard editions currently in print. Controversial, scandalous, erudite and funny, Ulysses is undisputedly a landmark of twentieth-century Modernism. It charts one day - 16th June 1904 - in the lives of three inhabitants of Dublin, the advertising salesman Leopold Bloom, the artist Stephen Dedalus and Bloom's wife Molly. Their peregrinations, thoughts and encounters form the basis of the narrative, which becomes a celebration of all human experience through the lives of specific individuals in a specific place at a specific time. Ulysses is both an experimental novel and a book intimately concerned with the events of modern life.

Often considered one of the greatest novel of the 20th century, James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, is both a feat and feast of sheer literary brilliance. Ulysses is one of those rare, impressive, inspiring feats of literary genius that is able to completely consume the reader, both in the sheer originality and magnificent scope of the great work. Highly recommended to read before you die.

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 22/11/2017

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man represents the transitional stage between the realism of Joyce's Dubliners and the symbolism of Ulysses, and is essential to the understanding of the later work. The novel is a highly autobiographical account of the adolescence and youth of Stephen Dedalus, who reappears in Ulysses, and who comes to realize that before he can become a true artist, he must rid himself of the stultifying effects of the religion, politics and essential bigotry of his background in late 19th century Ireland. Written with a light touch, this is perhaps the most accessible of Joyce's works.

"e;I will not serve that in which I no longer believe, whether it call itself my 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 defence the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning."e;James Joyce's supremely innovative fictional autobiography is also, in the apt phrase of the biographer Richard Ellmann, nothing less than "e;the gestation of a soul."e; For as he describes the shabby, cloying, and sometimes terrifying Dublin upbringing of his alter ego, Stephen Dedalus, Joyce immerses the reader in his emerging consciousness, employing language that ranges from baby talk to hellfire sermon to a triumphant artist's manifesto. The result is a novel of immense boldness, eloquence, and energy, a work that inaugurated a literary revolution and has become a model for the portrayal of the self in our time.

Dubliners

Dubliners

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 18/11/2017

Dubliners is a collection of fifteen short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences a life-changing self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity.

In the past, Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous, and even unreadable. None of these adjectives, however, do the slightest justice to the novel. To this day it remains the modernist masterpiece, in which the author takes both Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. It is funny, sorrowful, and even (in a close-focus sort of way) suspenseful. And despite the exegetical industry that has sprung up in the last 75 years, Ulysses is also a compulsively readable book. William Blake saw the universe in a grain of sand. Joyce saw it in Dublin, Ireland, on June 16, 1904, a day distinguished by its utter normality. Two characters, Stephen Dedalus and Leopold Bloom, go about their separate business, crossing paths with a gallery of indelible Dubliners. We watch them teach, eat, stroll the streets, argue, and (in Bloom's case) masturbate. And thanks to the book's stream-of-consciousness technique - which suggests no mere stream but an impossibly deep, swift-running river - we're privy to their thoughts, emotions, and memories. The result? Almost every variety of human experience is crammed into the accordian folds of a single day, which makes Ulysses not just an experimental work but the very last word in realism. I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape. -T. S.

In short stories, poems, and monumental novels, James Joyce set out to discover the meaning of his nationality, simultaneously celebrating and ridiculing the history of Ireland in the brilliant style that has made him the most towering figure in the literary landscape of the early twentieth century. Dublin-born, Gabriel Byrne-who has starred in many films, including Little Women and The Usual Suspects-clearly brings to life Joyce's short stories from Dubliners and selections from A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Chamber Music.

James Joyce's first published book, which he wrote when he was still in his twenties, Dubliners is far removed from the bold experimentalism of his later work, but is essential for understanding the author's development as a writer, and endures as a masterly example of the short-story form. Although ranging considerably in tone, mood and milieu, the fifteen short stories included in this collection all centre around the city of Dublin and its inhabitants at the beginning of the twentieth-century. From the unsettling adventure of two truant schoolboys to the crafty schemes of two con-men, from a young woman's refusal to abandon Ireland and elope with a sailor to a man's moment of clarity during an annual dance party, these stories offer a moving portrait of an entire world and era which has all but disappeared.

The debut of Ireland's greatest author and one of the most influential voices in modern literatureIt took nine years for James Joyce to find a publisher for this vivid, uncompromising, and altogether brilliant portrait of Dublin at the turn of the twentieth century. Now regarded as one of the finest story collections in the English language, it contains such masterpieces as "e;Araby,"e; "e;Grace,"e; and "e;The Dead,"e; and serves as a valuable and accessible introduction to the themes that define Joyce's later work, including the monumental Ulysses. Elegantly interweaving a moral history of Ireland with profiles of brave, flawed, and utterly realistic individuals-many of them clearly drawn from the author's own life-experiencing moments of profound insight, Dubliners is an essential work of art.

It is considered one of the most important works of Modernist literature. Ulysses chronicles the passage through Dublin by its main character, Leopold Bloom, during an ordinary day, June 16, 1904. The title alludes to the hero of Homer's Odyssey (Latinised into Ulysses), and there are many parallels, both implicit and explicit, between the two works (e.g., the correspondences between Leopold Bloom and Odysseus, Molly Bloom and Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus and Telemachus).

Ulysses is a modernist novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety in Paris by Sylvia Beach on 2 February 1922, Joyce's 40th birthday. It is considered to be one of the most important works of modernist literature, and has been called "e;a demonstration and summation of the entire movement"e;. According to Declan Kiberd, "e;Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking."e; Ulysses chronicles the peripatetic appointments and encounters of Leopold Bloom in Dublin in the course of an ordinary day, 16 June 1904. Ulysses is the Latinised name of Odysseus, the hero of Homer's epic poem Odyssey, and the novel establishes a series of parallels between the poem and the novel, with structural correspondences between the characters and experiences of Leopold Bloom and Odysseus, Molly Bloom and Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus and Telemachus, in addition to events and themes of the early twentieth century context of modernism, Dublin, and Ireland's relationship to Britain. The novel imitates registers of centuries of English literature and is highly allusive. Ulysses is approximately 265,000 words in length and is divided into eighteen episodes. Since publication, the book has attracted controversy and scrutiny, ranging from early obscenity trials to protracted textual "e;Joyce Wars"e;. Ulysses' stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose - full of puns, parodies, and allusions - as well as its rich characterisation and broad humour, have led it to be regarded as one of the greatest literary works ever written. Joyce fans worldwide now celebrate 16 June as Bloomsday.

'Ulysses' takes place in a single day, 16 June 1904, also known as Bloomsday, it sets the characters and incidents of the Odyssey of Homer in modern Dublin and represents Odysseus (Ulysses), Penelope and Telemachus in the characters of Leopold Bloom, his wife Molly Bloom and Stephen Dedalus, and contrasts them with their lofty models. The book explores various areas of Dublin life, dwelling on its squalor and monotony. Nevertheless, the book is also an affectionately detailed study of the city. In Ulysses, Joyce employs stream of consciousness, parody, jokes, and virtually every other literary technique to present his characters. Many consider it the best novel of the twentieth century. It is powerfully written, a book for the ages.

It was Joe Dillon who introduced the Wild West to us. He had a little library made up of old numbers of The Union Jack, Pluck and The Halfpenny Marvel. Every evening after school we met in his back garden and arranged Indian battles. He and his fat young brother Leo, the idler, held the loft of the stable while we tried to carry it by storm; or we fought a pitched battle on the grass. But, however well we fought, we never won siege or battle and all our bouts ended with Joe Dillon's war dance of victory. His parents went to eight-o'clock mass every morning in Gardiner Street and the peaceful odour of Mrs Dillon was prevalent in the hall of the house. But he played too fiercely for us who were younger and more timid. He looked like some kind of an Indian when he capered round the garden, an old tea-cosy on his head, beating a tin with his fist and yelling: "e;Ya! yaka, yaka, yaka!"e;

These vivid, tightly focused observations about the life of Dublin's poorer classes originally made publishers uneasy: the stories contain unconventional themes and coarse language, and they mention actual people and places. Today, however, the stories are admired.

Dubliners is a collection of fifteen short stories by James Joyce. They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences a life-changing self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity.

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Author: James Joyce, Sheba Blake Format: eBook Release Date: 14/04/2017

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A Kunstlerroman in a modernist style, it traces the religious and intellectual awakening of young Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to Daedalus, the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology. Stephen questions and rebels against the Catholic and Irish conventions under which he has grown, culminating in his self-exile from Ireland to Europe. The work uses techniques that Joyce developed more fully in Ulysses (1922) and Finnegans Wake (1939). A Portrait began life in 1903 as Stephen Hero.a projected 63-chapter autobiographical novel in a realistic style. After 25 chapters, Joyce abandoned Stephen Hero in 1907 and set to reworking its themes and protagonist into a condensed five-chapter novel, dispensing with strict realism and making extensive use of free indirect speech that allows the reader to peer into Stephen's developing consciousness. American modernist poet Ezra Pound had the novel serialised in the English literary magazine The Egoist in 1914 and 1915, and published as a book in 1916 by B. W. Huebsch of New York. The publication of A Portrait and the short story collection Dubliners (1914) earned Joyce a place at the forefront of literary modernism. In 1998, the Modern Library named the novel third on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.

THERE was no hope for him this time: it was the third stroke. Night after night I had passed the house (it was vacation time) and studied the lighted square of window: and night after night I had found it lighted in the same way, faintly and evenly. If he was dead, I thought, I would see the reflection of candles on the darkened blind for I knew that two candles must be set at the head of a corpse. He had often said to me: "e;I am not long for this world,"e; and I had thought his words idle. Now I knew they were true. Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears, like the word gnomon in the Euclid and the word simony in the Catechism. But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work.Old Cotter was sitting at the fire, smoking, when I came downstairs to supper. While my aunt was ladling out my stirabout he said, as if returning to some former remark of his:"e;No, I wouldn't say he was exactly... but there was something queer... there was something uncanny about him.

"e;In 1963...there was no way I could have known, sitting in a classroom on that beautiful campus in Ohio, that by raising my hand I would be going to war in Vietnam and that I would see things, hear things and do things that most people cannot imagine."e;-James Joyce. The author was drawn into the United States Army through ROTC, and went through training to fly helicopters in combat over Vietnam. His experiences are notable because he flew both Huey "e;Slicks"e; and Huey "e;Gunships"e;: the former on defense as he flew troops into battle, and the latter on offense as he took the battle to the enemy. Through this book, the author relives his experiences flying and fighting, with special attention given to his and other pilots' day-to-day lives-such as the smoke bombing of Disneyland, the nickname given to a United States Army-sponsored compound for prostitution. Some of the pilots Joyce served with survived the war and went on to have careers with commercial airlines, and many were killed.

The Little Review Ulysses

The Little Review Ulysses

Author: James Joyce, Mark Gaipa, Sean Latham, Robert Scholes Format: Paperback Release Date: 28/08/2015

James Joyce's Ulysses first appeared in print in the pages of an American avant-garde magazine, The Little Review, between 1918 and 1920. The novel many consider to be the most important literary work of the twentieth century was, at the time, deemed obscene and scandalous, resulting in the eventual seizure of The Little Review and the placing of a legal ban on Joyce's masterwork that would not be lifted in the United States until 1933. For the first time, The Little Review Ulysses brings together the serial installments of Ulysses to create a new edition of the novel, enabling teachers, students, scholars, and general readers to see how one of the previous century's most daring and influential prose narratives evolved, and how it was initially introduced to an audience who recognized its radical potential to transform Western literature. This unique and essential publication also includes essays and illustrations designed to help readers understand the rich contexts in which Ulysses first appeared and trace the complex changes Joyce introduced after it was banned.

Joyce es aclamado por su obra maestra, Ulises (1922), y por su controvertida novela posterior, Finnegans Wake (1939). Igualmente ha sido muy valorada la serie de historias breves titulada Dublineses (1914), as como su novela semi autobiogrfica Retrato del artista adolescente (1916). Joyce es representante destacado de la corriente literaria de vanguardia denominada modernismo anglosajn, junto a autores como T. S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Ezra Pound o Wallace Stevens. Aunque pas la mayor parte de su vida adulta fuera de Irlanda, el universo literario de este autor se encuentra fuertemente enraizado en su nativa Dubln, la ciudad que provee a sus obras de los escenarios, ambientes, personajes y dems materia narrativa.Ms en particular, su problemtica relacin primera con la iglesia catlica de Irlanda se refleja muy bien a travs de los conflictos interiores que atormentan a su lter ego en la ficcin, representado por el personaje de Stephen Dedalus. As, Joyce es conocido por su atencin minuciosa a un escenario muy delimitado y por su prolongado y autoimpuesto exilio, pero tambin por su enorme influencia en todo el mundo. Por ello, pese a su regionalismo, paradjicamente lleg a ser uno de los escritores ms cosmopolitas de su tiempo.

Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. The fifteen stories were meant to be a naturalistic depiction of the Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century.The stories were written at the time when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They center on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character has a special moment of self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by children as protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity.

Oameni din Dublin

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 24/06/2015

„Toate povestirile sunt fragmente ale conditiei umane, dramatice prin lipsa lor de speranta, din viata apasatorului Dublin: au ca personaje oameni simpli, cu vieti pline de greutati si de frustrari, cu totii prinsi în mecanismul necrutator si impasibil al orasului. Joyce asa vedea Dublinul si despre asta voia sa scrie în povestirile sale: «Intentia mea a fost sa scriu un capitol din istoria morala a tarii mele si am ales Dublinul ca scena pentru ca orasul mi-a parut a fi centrul paraliziei. Am încercat sa-l prezint publicului în patru ipostaze: copilarie, adolescenta, maturitate si viata publica». Povestirile vorbesc, în fond, despre înstrainare si ratare, despre limitele umane, despre felul în care viata cu circumstantele ei, simbolizate aici de marele organism al orasului, subjuga si macina destinele oamenilor.“ (Marius Chivu)

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 12/06/2015

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a semi-autobiographical novel by James Joyce, first serialized in The Egoist from 1914 to 1915 and published in book form in 1916. It depicts the formative years in the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and a pointed allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Daedalus.A Portrait is a key example of the Kunstlerroman (an artist's bildungsroman) in English literature. Joyce's novel traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus as he begins to question and rebel against the Catholic and Irish conventions he has been brought up in. He finally leaves for Paris to pursue his calling as an artist. The work pioneers some of Joyce's modernist techniques that would later come to fruition in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. The Modern Library ranked Portrait as the third greatest English-language novel of the twentieth century.

Ulysses is a novel by James Joyce, first serialized in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach on February 2, 1922, in Paris. It is considered one of the most important works of Modernist literature.Ulysses chronicles the passage through Dublin by its main character, Leopold Bloom, during an ordinary day, June 16, 1904. The title alludes to the hero of Homer's Odyssey (Latinised into Ulysses), and there are many parallels, both implicit and explicit, between the two works (e.g., the correspondences between Leopold Bloom and Odysseus, Molly Bloom and Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus and Telemachus).

Night after night I had passed the house (it was vacation time) and studied the lighted square of window: and night after night I had found it lighted in the same way, faintly and evenly. If he was dead, I thought, I would see the reflection of candles on the darkened blind for I knew that two candles must be set at the head of a corpse. He had often said to me: "e;I am not long for this world,"e; and I had thought his words idle. Now I knew they were true. Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears, like the word gnomon in the Euclid and the word simony in the Catechism. But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work.Old Cotter was sitting at the fire, smoking, when I came downstairs to supper. While my aunt was ladling out my stirabout he said, as if returning to some former remark of his:"e;No, I wouldn't say he was exactly... but there was something queer... there was something uncanny about him. I'll tell you my opinion...."e;He began to puff at his pipe, no doubt arranging his opinion in his mind. Tiresome old fool! When we knew him first he used to be rather interesting, talking of faints and worms; but I soon grew tired of him and his endless stories about the distillery."e;I have my own theory about it,"e; he said. "e;I think it was one of those... peculiar cases.... But it's hard to say...."e; He began to puff again at his pipe without giving us his theory.

Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominent among these the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). His complete oeuvre also includes three books of poetry, a play, occasional journalism, and his published letters.

Author: James Joyce Format: Paperback Release Date: 30/03/2015

Emotional minds all work alike. It's what's been fed to them that determines lives of either joy and satisfaction or frustration and anxiety - the markers of mental health. Academic knowledge and intellectual levels have little or nothing to do with emotional well-being, by the way, a reality often confounding to therapists. The famous Talking Cure, the basis of all psychotherapy, is explained from two perspectives: the person lying on the couch and the other seated behind it. The author was both. Psychoanalysts must be patients (for years) before they can practice. Joyce candidly discusses his personal analysis describing his emotional misfires and their causes. He then uses case studies from his practice explaining the meaning of dreams and the causes of neuroses, depression, relationship problems and other issues that plague the lives of many. Joyce writes primarily for lay readers but professional therapists can benefit also. Call it a tune-up. Jargon is used sparingly and, when used, is simply explained. Psychoanalysis is mostly common sense. Talking to the right person, at the right time and about the right topics can be wonderfully transformative, even curative. Joyce's easy to read prose makes that clear.

The Ondt and the Gracehoper

Author: James Joyce Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/01/2015

The Ondt and the Gracehoper is James Joyce's peculiar and hilarious re-telling of Aesop's ancient fable of The Ant and the Grasshopper. Joyce's version is presented in his last great work, Finnegans Wake (Book III, Chapter 1). Although Aesop's fable has been illustrated many times over the centuries, Joyce's unique take on it has never been interpreted. This book consists of a series of colour illustrations by Irish artist Thomas McNally alongside Joyce's text. Each picture is based on a line from the fable and, taken together, they illuminate Joyce's re-telling. This edition of Joyce's fable offers readers a fantastical and much-needed entry point into Finnegans Wake. Although Joyce's novel is often described as one of the most impenetrable literary works ever written, there are great riches and humour beyond its difficult surface that everyone can enjoy. By reading Joyce's fable alongside the illustrations, readers will be given an ideal entry into Finnegans Wake and get a clear sense of the humour that is an intrinsic feature of Joyce's highly inventive use of language. The fable and its drawings are augmented with an Introduction by the artist and an accompanying essay by Finnegans Wake textual scholar Danis Rose.

The Dead and Other Stories

The Dead and Other Stories

Author: James Joyce Format: Paperback Release Date: 30/07/2014

That James Joyce's The Dead forms an extraordinary conclusion to his collection Dubliners, there can be no doubt. But as many have pointed out, The Dead may equally well be read as a novella-arguably, one of the finest novellas ever written. The Dead, a story of public life, as Joyce categorised it, was written more than a year after Joyce had finished the other stories in the collection, and was meant to redress what he felt was their unnecessary harsh[ness]. Set on the feast of the epiphany, it is a haunting tale of connection and of alienation, reflecting, in the words of Stanislaus Joyce (James's brother and confidant), the nostalgic love of a rejected exile. The present volume highlights The Dead for readers who wish to focus on that great work in a concise volume-and for university courses in which it is not possible to cover all of Dubliners. But it also gives a strong sense of how that story is part of a larger whole. One story from each of the other sections of Dubliners has been included, and a wide range of background materials is included as well, providing a vivid sense of the literary and historical context out of which the work emerged.

James joyce - The Poetry

James joyce - The Poetry

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 23/07/2014

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce was born on 2nd February 1882 in the Dublin suburb of Rathgar. He is an icon not just of the Irish but for book lovers everywhere although many complain that his prose is difficult to engage with and enjoy as much as they would wish. One of the most influential of the modernist avant-garde school of the early 20th century he is best admired for Ulysses, published in 1922, a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominent among these the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). Here we concentrate on his poems, often under rated and thought of as lesser works. They are simply as good as what you would expect from the thoughts, mind and pen of James Joyce. James Joyce died in Zurich on January 13th 1941 after surgery on a perforated ulcer. His style and work are perhaps best summed up in his own words "e;For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world. In the particular is contained the universal."e;

Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man

Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 01/09/2013

The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a novel by the Irish writer James Joyce. It is often classified by critics as a "e;fictional auto-biography"e; since the story's protagonist is naturally identified with the author himself. Events in the novel are not as important as the psychological development and maturation that Joyce's hero Stephen Dedalus goes through from the beginning till the end of the narrative. As an Irish young man, Dedalus wishes to pursue a career of an artist and a writer, yet he is continuously preoccupied with his existential and religious concerns. In fact, he has been raised as a Roman Catholic in a family and a society that often mingle religion with politics and nationalistic sentiments. His concerns are even more intensified when his father goes into serious financial troubles. After a first sexual experience, then a second, Dedalus indulges in a period of debauchery and in all sorts of desires of the flesh. He is soon drowned in feelings of remorse and guilt, however. He turns back to religiosity and decides to lead a life of abstinence and piety, though carrying on with his writing and acting activities. Dedalus's monologues and contemplations often center on the relationship between religion, sensual desire and the appreciation of beauty. He ultimately determines to escape from all his religious, family and nationalistic chains to lead a life of complete independence and to live only for beauty and art.

Ulysses

Ulysses

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 01/09/2013

Ulysses is a seminal novel by the Irish writer James Joyce that has had a great impact on the modernist movement. Indeed, for many critics, the novel has established most of the conventions of modern fiction and has become one of its fundamental references. After being serialized in magazines, Ulysses has first been collected and published in 1922. The narrative, which is set in the Irish capital Dublin and divided into 18 episodes, follows the two principal characters of Leopold Bloom and Stephen Dedalus. Different issues are discussed and reflected upon ranging from Irish history and nationalism to anti-Semitism, art, literature, sexual desire, marital infidelity, death, religion and theology. In each episode, Joyce draws parallels between his own story and Homer's classic epic poem The Odyssey, often borrowing the names of its heroes and places and invoking its main themes. Joyce's novel is marked by experimentation, the extensive use of symbolism, figures of speech, allusive language, metaphorical language and parody. It is also in Ulysses that Joyce develops his now famous narratorial technique known as "e;the stream of consciousness"e; where the character's thoughts are naturally presented without any attempt at interrupting them or rearranging them.

This carefully crafted ebook: "e;Dubliners (All 15 Short Stories)"e; is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Dubliners is a collection of 15 short stories by James Joyce, first published in 1914. They form a naturalistic depiction of Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written when Irish nationalism was at its peak, and a search for a national identity and purpose was raging; at a crossroads of history and culture, Ireland was jolted by various converging ideas and influences. They centre on Joyce's idea of an epiphany: a moment where a character experiences self-understanding or illumination. Many of the characters in Dubliners later appear in minor roles in Joyce's novel Ulysses. The initial stories in the collection are narrated by child protagonists, and as the stories continue, they deal with the lives and concerns of progressively older people. This is in line with Joyce's tripartite division of the collection into childhood, adolescence and maturity. James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 - 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century.

A novel written in Joyce's characteristic free indirect speech style, A Portrait is a major example of the Kunstlerroman (an artist's Bildungsroman) in English literature. Joyce's novel traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus as he begins to question and rebel against the Catholic and Irish conventions with which he has been raised. He finally leaves for abroad to pursue his ambitions as an artist. The work is an early example of some of Joyce's modernist techniques that would later be represented in a more developed manner by Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. The novel, which has had a "e;huge influence on novelists across the world"e;, was ranked by Modern Library as the third greatest English-language novel of the 20th century.

This book reads the entire output of James Joyce, from Chamber Music to Finnegans Wake, in the perspective of the Irish authors wish to celebrate secular love as the all-pervasive power that can be experienced in a post-metaphysical world. Boysen grounds his outstanding essay on the table-turning thesis that, far from abolishing the power of love, the death of God , this essential staple of twentieth century continental philosophy, makes mutual love all the more necessary to us; it warrants, in fact, the universality of our encounter with the Other . -- Gian Balsamo, author of Joyces Messianism: Dante, Negative Existence, and the Messianic Self (2005) and Rituals of Literature: Joyce, Dante, Aquinas, and the Tradition of Christian Epics (2004). An avid student of literature and thought from Antiquity over the Middle Ages and Renaissance down to the present, Dr Benjamin Boysen, in The Ethics of Love, brings stupendous erudition to bear, with immense verve, on the entirety of the great Dubliners creative works and critical utterances. The essay , a courageous exercise on a scale that honours its subject, brings a parade of original and authoritative insights, as well as constructive adaptations of other scholars' views. Virtually half of Boysens hefty volume is devoted to the Wake, and in his intensity and meticulousness as an informed analyst, Boysen proves to surpass himself in his amazing mastery of Joyces difficult final masterpiece. The intellectual power of Boysens book on the complex ethics of love in Joyce significantly advances our understanding of why Joyce has become canonical in world literature. It also signals the appearance of a young rising star in comparative literary studies.

The story describes the formative years of the life of Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology, Daedalus. A novel written in Joyce's characteristic free indirect speech style, A Portrait is a major example of the Knstlerroman (an artist's Bildungsroman) in English literature. Joyce's novel traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus as he begins to question and rebel against the Catholic and Irish conventions with which he has been raised. He finally leaves for abroad to pursue his ambitions as an artist. The work is an early example of some of Joyce's modernist techniques that would later be represented in a more developed manner by Ulysses and Finnegans Wake. The novel was ranked by Modern Library as the third greatest English-language novel of the 20th century.

The Penguin English Library Edition of Dubliners by James Joyce 'Every night as I gazed up at the window I said softly to myself the word paralysis. It had always sounded strangely in my ears ... But now it sounded to me like the name of some maleficent and sinful being. It filled me with fear, and yet I longed to be nearer to it and to look upon its deadly work' From a child grappling with the death of a fallen priest, to a young woman's dilemma over whether to elope to Argentina with her lover, to the dance party at which a man discovers just how little he really knows about his wife, these fifteen stories bring the gritty realism of existence in Joyce's native Dublin to life. With Dubliners, James Joyce reinvented the art of fiction, using a scrupulous, deadpan realism to convey truths that were at once blasphemous and sacramental. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.

Although James Joyce began these stories of Dublin life in 1904, when he was 22, and had completed them by the end of 1907, they remained unpublished until 1914 — victims of Edwardian squeamishness. Their vivid, tightly focused observations of the life of Dublin's poorer classes, their unconventional themes, coarse language, and mention of actual people and places made publishers of the day reluctant to undertake sponsorship.Today, however, the stories are admired for their intense and masterly dissection of "e;dear dirty Dublin,"e; and for the economy and grace with which Joyce invested this youthful fiction. From "e;The Sisters,"e; the first story, illuminating a young boy's initial encounter with death, through the final piece, "e;The Dead,"e; considered a masterpiece of the form, these tales represent, as Joyce himself explained, a chapter in the moral history of Ireland that would give the Irish "e;one good look at themselves."e; But in the end the stories are not just about the Irish; they represent moments of revelation common to all people.Now readers can enjoy all 15 stories in this inexpensive collection, which also functions as an excellent, accessible introduction to the work of one of the 20th century's most influential writers. Dubliners is reprinted here, complete and unabridged, from a standard edition.

Finnegans Wake

Author: James Joyce Format: Paperback Release Date: 14/06/2012

'And low, stole o'er the stillness the heartbeats of sleep' In Chapelizod, a suburb of Dublin, an innkeeper and his family are sleeping. Around them and their dreams there swirls a vortex of world history, of ambition and failure, desire and transgression, pride and shame, rivalry and conflict, gossip and mystery. This is a book that reinvents the novel and plays fantastic games with the language to tell the story of one man's fall and resurrection; in the intimate drama of Humphrey Chimpden Earwicker and his wife Anna Livia, the character of Ireland itself takes form. Joyce called time and the river and the mountains the real heroes of his book, and its organic structure and extraordinary musicality embody his vision. It is both an outrageous epic and a wildly inventive comedy that rewards its readers with never-ending layers of meaning. In the introduction to this newly set edition, which faithfully maintains the original page layout, Finn Fordham guides the reader through the novel's complexity, and suggests a range of ways into the book. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

In Dubliners, James Joyce takes us on an extraordinary journey with the ordinary men and women from the city of his birth. In 'Araby' a young boy struggles with everyday tasks in the face of a growing infatuation with his neighbour's sister; in 'The Boarding House' a single mother orchestrates a marriage proposal for her daughter; in 'The Dead' the ideas of birth and decay are played out over the course of a dinner. From short, lyrical stories to the novella-length masterpiece which concludes this collection, Dubliners is as alive with feeling as it was when first published.

Molly Bloom's Soliloquy

Author: James Joyce Format: CD-Audio Release Date: 30/04/2012

Molly Bloom's Soliloquy, the remarkable climactic conclusion to Ulysses, remains, nearly a century after its first publication, one of the most remarkable chapters in world literature. It is night, the end of a long day (16 June 1904) for Leopold Bloom's wife, Molly. She lies in bed, muses on the events of the day, her life with her husband, her affair with Blazes Boylan, and drifts towards sleep. Joyce tried to document a woman's thoughts in an unexpurgated stream of consciousness: subjects, memories, fantasies interweave among the incomplete sentences. Regarded as scandalous and brilliant in its intimacy, the soliloquy is captivating and engrossing, especially when read so convincingly by the Irish actress Marcella Riordan. For those who have found it difficult to get to the end of Ulysses, here, unabridged, is the soliloquy on its own - and curiously it works almost as an extended poem, with a rhythm and an intimate power that are unforgettable.

'Snow was general all over Ireland. It was falling on every part of the dark central plain, on the treeless hills, falling softly upon the Bog of Allen and, farther westward, softly falling into the dark mutinous Shannon waves.' From a child grappling with the death of a fallen priest, to a young woman's dilemma over whether to elope to Argentina with her lover, to the dance party at which a man discovers just how little he really knows about his wife, these fifteen stories bring the gritty realism of existence in Joyce's native Dublin to life.

Like much of James Joyce's work, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is a fictional re-creation of the Irish writer's own life and early environment. The experiences of the novel's young hero, Stephen Dedalus, unfold in astonishingly vivid scenes that seem freshly recalled from life and provide a powerful portrait of the coming of age of a young man of unusual intelligence, sensitivity, and character.The interest of the novel is deepened by Joyce's telling portrayals of an Irish upbringing and schooling, the Catholic Church and its priesthood, Parnell and Irish politics, encounters with the conflicting roles of art and morality (problems that would follow Joyce throughout his life), sexual experimentation and its aftermath, and the decision to leave Ireland.Rich in details that offer vital insights into Joyce's art, this masterpiece of semiautobiographical fiction remains essential reading in any program of study in modern literature.

This reprint of the original edition is not only the least expensive version available but also the truest to the author's vision.

Finnegans Wake

Finnegans Wake

Author: James Joyce, Len Platt Format: Paperback Release Date: 07/01/2012

Finnegans Wake is the book of Here Comes Everybody and Anna Livia Plurabelle and their family - their book, but in a curious way the book of us all as well as all our books. Joyce's last great work, it is not comprised of many borrowed styles, like Ulysses, but, rather, formulated as one dense, tongue-twisting soundscape. This 'language' is based on English vocabulary and syntax but, at the same time, self-consciously designed to function as a pun machine with an astonishing capacity for resisting singularity of meaning. Announcing a 'revolution of the word', this astonishing book amounts to a powerfully resonant cultural critique - a unique kind of miscommunication which, far from stabilizing the world in meaning, constructs a universe radically unfixed by a wild diversity of possibilities and potentials. It also remains the most hilarious, 'obscene', book of innuendos ever to be imagined.

Ulysses

Ulysses

Author: James Joyce Format: CD-Audio Release Date: 05/01/2012

The young poet Stephen has been recalled from Paris to Dublin to be at his mother's deathbed. But he refuses her dying wishes: to kneel and pray for her. Now, holed up in his Martello tower outside the city walls, he has to suffer the taunts of Buck Mulligan by day and, by night, the vision of `her eyes, shaking out of death to shake and bend my soul.' Timelessly evocative, Ulysses is far more than the story of Stephen Dedalus' journey through Dublin. It is a huge, rich portrayal of human life. In this magnificent, highly accessible, part reading part dramatisation - which includes the famous Molly Bloom soliloquy - the power and truth of Joyce's vision is as potent as ever. Ulysses stars Stephen Rea and Sinead Cusack, with an introduction by Seamus Heaney. 'The best book at bedtime' - Sunday Telegraph. 8 CDs. 7 hrs 25 mins.

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. `Welcome, O life! I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.' Autobiographical in tone, Joyce's tale of Stephen Dedalus' journey into adulthood explores the intellectual and moral development of an artist as he struggles to overcome the ingrained Catholic consciousness of his childhood - a family life governed by Irish history, religion and politics. Realistic and innovative in its approach, the style of writing proved controversial upon publication in 1916 and the character of Stephen on a quest for his identity did not appeal to readers.However, Joyce expertly encapsulates the development of individual consciousness and the role of the artist in society in what is considered one of his greatest works.

Author: James Joyce Format: eBook Release Date: 07/12/2011

It is now approaching one hundred years since the first publication of The Dead and this wonderful story continues to fascinate readers, even prompting in recent times a film adaptation and a stage play. There are many who feel it is the finest short story/novella ever written. Beautifully executed in so many ways, multilayered and possessing an ineffable delicateness in subtlety throughout, it may indeed be James Joyce's finest writing. There is something so captivating in the way The Dead unfolds that even peripheral characters such as Lily the caretaker's daughter, Miss Ivors and Bartell D'Arcy take on a very definite existence and linger with the reader taken through this tale of tussle between the living and the dead. Critical interest in the story has remained active with scholars still debating the meaning of the title, still searching out the meaning of Gabriel's 'journey westward', and continuing identifying thematic significances. One fact that there is unanimity upon is that Gabriel Conroy is James Joyce-and the twenty-five year-old James Joyce writing the story in Trieste in the spring and summer of 1907 is harsh on himself:'A shameful consciousness of his own person assailed him. He saw himself as a ludicrous figure, acting as a pennyboy for his aunts, a nervous well-meaning sentimentalist, orating to vulgarians and idealizing his own clownish lusts, the pitiable fatuous fellow he had caught a glimpse of in the mirror. Instinctively he turned his back more to the light lest she might see the shame that burned upon his forehead.'The ending of the story where Gabriel looks out the window of his room in the Gresham Hotel and watches the snow - 'His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.' - is quite unforgettable. This lavishly illustrated version of The Dead contains fifty illustrations of the contemporary Dublin world depicted in the novella. Many of the photos, including photos of the opera singers mentioned, are seen for the first time in Joycean material.

For Joyce, literature 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'. Written between 1914 and 1921, Ulysses has survived bowdlerization, legal action and bitter controversy. An undisputed modernist classic, its ceaseless verbal inventiveness and astonishing wide-ranging allusions confirms its standing as an imperishable monument to the human condition. Declan Kiberd says in his introduction that Ulysses is 'an endlessly open book of utopian epiphanies. It holds a mirror up to the colonial capital that was Dublin on 16 June 1904, but it also offers redemptive glimpses of a future world which might be made over in terms of those utopian moments.'

In this largely autobiographical coming-of-age story, James Joyce describes the awakening young mind of a middle-class Irish Catholic boy named Stephen Dedalus. The story follows Stephen's development from his early troubled boyhood through an adolescent crisis of faith-partially inspired by the famous "e;hellfire sermon"e; preached by Father Arnall and partly by the guilt of his own precocious sexual adventures-to his discovery of his ultimate destiny as a poet. Written in a unique voice that reflects the age and emotional state of its protagonist, the novel explores questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. With richly symbolic language and a boldly original style, this most personal of Joyce's works confirms his place as one of the world's greatest writers.

Joyce's experimental masterpiece set a new standard for modernist fiction, pushing the English language past all previous thresholds in its quest to capture a day in the life of an Everyman in turn-of-the-century Dublin. Obliquely borrowing characters and situations from Homer's Odyssey, Joyce takes us on an internal odyssey along the current of thoughts, impressions, and experiences that make up the adventure of living an average day. As his characters stroll, eat, ruminate, and argue through the streets of Dublin, Joyce's stream-of-consciousness narrative artfully weaves events, emotions, and memories in a free flow of imagery and associations. Full of literary references, parody, and uncensored vulgarity, Ulysses has been considered controversial and challenging but always brilliant and rewarding.
