    DescriptionJoyce's first major work, written when he was only twenty-five, brought his city to the world for the first time. His stories are rooted in the rich detail of Dublin life, portraying ordinary, often defeated lives with unflinching realism. He writes of social decline, sexual desire and exploitation, corruption, and personal failure, yet creates a brilliantly compelling, unique vision of the world and of human experience.

    Author Information
    James Joyce was born in Dublin on February 2, 1882. He came from a reasonably wealthy family that, predominantly because of the recklessness of Joyce's father John, was soon plunged into financial hardship. The young Joyce attended Clongowes College, Belvedere College, and eventually University College, Dublin. In 1904 he met Nora Barnacle and eloped with her to Croatia. From this point until the end of his life, Joyce lived as an exile, moving from Trieste to Rome, and then to Zurich and Paris. His major works were "Dubliners" (1914), "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" (1916), "Ulysses" (1922), and "Finnegans Wake" (1939). He died in 1941, by which time he had come to be regarded as one of the greatest novelists the world has ever produced.
