With novels like A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses, he made a monumental contribution to English literature. But he never really had the opportunity--or perhaps even the inclination--to enjoy his success.
James Joyce is universally regarded as one of the most influential authors of all time, and his works are in the cornerstone of the canon of Western literature. But his life was marked by uncertainty, unhappiness and scandal. From the loss of his parents' fortune to the controversy that erupted following the release of Ulysses, BIOGRAPHY® tracks Joyce's life and career through excerpts from his works, commentary from leading scholars, and rare photos capturing the enigmatic author at every stage of his remarkable journey.
