JAMES JOYCE : A SMALL PORTRAIT OF A TALLER NOVELIST !

james_joyce

Everybody Can’t Like To Read Joyce And, In Fact, Joyce Himself Might Have Wished So As He Says Somewhere That He Wants From His Readers To Devote Their Lifetime For Studying His Works !

This Was Too Much To Ask From The Fraternity Of Readers !

James Joyce Had An Uncanny Power In His Style Of Writing And That Was That He Pushed To The Extremes Of Language And, At Times, Rather, Normally, It Makes His Writing A Bit Unintelligible And, That Is Where Any Reader Encounters Sort Of A Dividing Line In Terms Of Likings !

JAMES JOYCE,THE GREAT MODERN
NOVELIST WHO WROTE
ONE,RATHER TWO OF THE MOST
COMPLEX NOVELS EVER WRITTEN
IN ANY LANGUAGE : ‘ULYSSES’ n
‘FINNEGANS WAKE’ , WAS BORN ON
FEBRUARY 2, 1882 IN
DUBLIN,IRELAND!

James Joyce Wrote Very Few
Books ,But, Masterpieces!Apart
From The Above Two Novels,His
Third One n Chronologically First,
‘A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A
YOUNG MAN’ Is Also A Classic
Novel Examining The Three
Phases Of A Man’s Life :
Childhood, Adoloscent n Youth In
The Life Of Mr. STEPHEN DEDALUS
(an alter-ego of the writer
himself).

Joyce Also Wrote A Famous
Collection Of Short stories Named,
‘ DUBLINERS’ ,Which Again
Examines The Lives Of People
Populating The Irish Capital City
Of Dublin,where Joyce Had Spent
His Early Years Before Being
Shifted To Trieste,Italy,
Paris,France n Zurich,
Switzerland.
Some of the stories,especially,
‘THE DEAD’ made it to Cinema !

Joyce Used To Write Long Letters
At A Rather Regular Period And
His Letters Published In
Anthology Form After Joyce’s
Death, Helped Form Many A New
Thing Regarding The Author’s
Life, Therefore, Serves Greatly The
Purpose Of Dissecting The
Enigma Called James Joyce!

These Letters Throw Great Light
On Joyce’s Relationship With
NORA BARNACLE,Whom He
Married More Than A Decade
After Having Had Sort Of A ‘LIVE-
IN’ Relation.

James Joyce Would Not Have
Been The James Joyce, Had He
Not Been Blessed By The
Companionship Plus The
Patronage Of People Like The
Great Literary Dictator,EZRA
POUND, The Enthusiastic Lady
Publisher, HARRIET WEAVER and
Last But Not The Least, The
Owner Of The World Famed
Bookshop(Shakespeare & Co.) Of
Paris, SYLVIA BREECH and A Few
Others (like some russian
expatriate businessman living in
Paris).

James Joyce Couldn’t Get, As
Critics Think, What He Might Have
Deserved ,But, There Is Little
Doubt That Posthumously James
Joyce Is Annointed As THE SINGLE
MOST LITERARY GIANT OR
MODERNIST who have ever
written in our modern period !

And, No One Could Ever Be Able
To Gauge How Much Influences
Joyce Had, Have n Will Continue
To Have On Writers Around The
World !
