James Joyce Books



James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (English James Augustine Aloysius Joyce , Irish Séamas Seoige ; February 2, 1882 – January 13, 1941) – Irish writer and poet, representative of modernism. James Joyce was born in Rathgar, a Georgian-built neighborhood on the south side of Dublin, to John Stanislas Joyce and Mary Jane Murray. Unsuccessful business management almost ruined his father, who was forced to change his profession several times and worked as a distiller, and even a tax inspector. The family moved several times from one area of ​​Dublin to another. James managed to get a good education, but the poverty and disorder of his life in his youth forever remained in his memory, which is partly reflected in his works. Joyce himself often drew biographical analogies with the protagonist of some of his works and one of the main characters in his novels “Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man” and “Ulysses” Stephen Daedalus. At the age of 6, Joyce entered the Jesuit College Clongous Woods in Clain, and then, in 1893 – at the Dublin College Belvedere, which he graduated in 1897. A year later, James entered the University of Dublin (the so-called University College), which finished in 1902. In 1900, the Dublin newspaper “Two-Week Review” published the first publication of James Joyce – an essay on Ibsen`s play “When We Dead Awake.” At the same time, Joyce began writing lyric poems. From 1916 he was published in the literary American magazine “Little Review”, founded by Jane Heap and Margaret Anderson. At the age of 22, Joyce left for Paris. This was his first departure to the continent, where, due to financial problems, he, like his father once, often changed professions. He worked as a journalist, teacher, etc. A year after he arrived in France, Joyce received a telegram stating that his mother was in serious condition and returned to Ireland. After the death of his mother in 1904, Joyce again left his homeland, this time with the maid Nora Barnacle, whom he later (27 years later) married. Shortly before the outbreak of World War I, Joyce and his wife moved to Zurich, where he began working on the novel A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, and later on the first chapters of Ulysses. Moving around Europe, Joyce wrote poetry, some of which have been published in anthologies of Imagism. He also continued to work on Ulysses, a novel that first saw the light of day not in the writer`s homeland (where it was published only in 1933), but in France. This is Joyce`s most famous work, in which the author tells the story of one day (June 16, 1904) of the Dublin Jew, Leopold Bloom, on 600 pages. Despite the fact that “Ulysses” was created abroad, according to this book, according to Joyce himself, Dublin could be rebuilt in case of its destruction. June 16 is celebrated by Joyce fans around the world as Bloomsday. In Paris, James Joyce began work on his last major work, Finnegans Wake, published in 1939. This complex experimental novel, however, was not well received by the public, and is still a book “for specialists”, in contrast to the earlier book of novels by Joyce “Dubliners”, which is now considered a model book of this genre. His early novel “Portrait of an Artist in his Youth” is also popular today. After the defeat of France and the occupation of part of its territory by German troops at the beginning of World War II, Joyce returned to Zurich. He suffered greatly from the effects of glaucoma. His health continued to deteriorate, and on January 13, 1941, he died. Joyce has greatly influenced world culture. In our time, he remains one of the most widely read English-language prose writers. On March 17, 2008, a monument to James Joyce was unveiled in the garden of the State Library for Foreign Literature in Moscow. Major works of Epiphanies 1901-1903 Chamber Music 1902-1906 A Portret of the Artist 1904, 7 January. The Holy Office 1904 Dubliners 1904-1914 Gas From A Burner 1912 September Giacomo Joyce 1911-1914 Stephen the Hero Hero [later reworked into A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man] A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man 1907-1914 Exiles 1914-1915 Ulysses 1914 -1921 Poems Pennyeach 1927 Ecce Puer 1932 Finnegans Wake 1922-1939 Wikipedia materials. At http://sp-issues.narod.ru/2/belyaev.htm you can read about the translation of “Finnegans Wake”
