James Joyce

James Joyce was born in Dublin in 1882. Although he spent much of his adult life in Europe, this controversial writer and poet set all of his major works in Dublin City, including ‘Ulysses’, ‘Finnegans Wake’ and the short story collection, ‘Dubliners’. James Joyce claimed that, should the city of Dublin be destroyed, it could be recreated perfectly from the pages of Ulysses.

A wide range of writers have cited Joyce as an influence on their work, some of these include, William Burroughs, Tom Robbins, Flann O’Brien and Salman Rushdie.
