Description

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. 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 utilised. Other well-known works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegan's Wake (1939). His other writings include three books of poetry, a play, occasional journalism, and his published letters. 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 by Sylvia Beach in February 1922, in Paris. 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;However, even proponents of Ulysses such as Anthony Burgess have described the book as "e;inimitable, and also possibly mad"e;.
