Joyce, James Augustine

(1882-1941)
   Dublin-born novelist and poet, he was one of the significant figures in twentieth century English literature. Educated at Jesuit schools and Belvedere College, Dublin, he graduated from University College, Dublin, where he studied languages, in 1902. With his wife Nora and their family, he lived most of his life abroad. He is best known for his novel Ulysses, published in parts in The Little Review and The Egoist, and in book form in Paris in 1922. Its publication was banned in Britain as being obscene and for the same reason, until 1933, in the United States. His other great work is Finnegans Wake (1939). He died in Zürich after an operation for a perforated duodenal ulcer. The Joyce Museum, Dublin, contains pictures, papers, and first editions of Joyce's books. Some of his poetry publications: Chamber Music, 1907. Poems Pennyeach, 1927. Collected Poems, 1937. Some of his poems: "A Flower Given to My Daughter," "An Advertisement for Finnegans Wake," "Bahnhofstrasse," "On the Beach at Fontana," "She Weeps over Rahoon," "Watching the Needleboats at San Sabba."
