James Joyce, Irish novelist, short story writer, and poet (February 2, 1882 - January 13, 1941) was born James Augustine Aloysius Joyce at 41 Brighton Square, Rathgar, Dublin, Ireland. James Joyce contributed to the modernist avant-garde and is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), published on his 40th birthday, a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer' Odyssey are paralleled in a variety of literary styles, perhaps most prominently stream of consciousness. Other well-known works are the short-story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1939). His other writings include three books of poetry, a play, his published letters and occasional journalism. Joyce was #born in 41 Brighton Square, Rathgar, Dublin, into a middle-class family on the way down. A brilliant student, he briefly attended the Christian Brothers-run O'Connell School before excelling at the Jesuit schools Clongowes and Belvedere, despite the chaotic family life imposed by his father' alcoholism and unpredictable finances. He went on to attend University College Dublin. In 1904, in his early twenties, Joyce emigrated to continental Europe with his partner (and later wife) Nora Barnacle. They lived in Trieste, Paris and Zurich. Alhough most of his adult life was spent abroad, Joyce' fictional universe centres on Dublin, and is populated largely by characters who closely resemble family members, enemies and friends from his time there. Ulysses in particular is set with precision in the streets and alleyways of the city. Shortly after the publication of Ulysses, he elucidated this preoccupation somewhat, saying, "For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world. In the particular is contained the universal.". on June 16, 1904, he began his relationship with Nora Barnacle, and subsequently used the date to set the actions for his novel Ulysses; this date is now traditionally called "Bloomsday" after one of the two heroes of the novel, Leopold Bloom. On December 29, 1916, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, the first novel by James Joyce, was first published as a book by an American publishing house B. W. Huebschis after it had been serialized in The Egoist (1914-15). On December 6, 1933, U.S. federal judge John M. Woolsey ruled in the case of United States v. One Book Called Ulysses that James Joyce' novel Ulysses was not obscene. Even before its publication in 1922, serialized chapters of the book appearing in The Little Review literary magazine as early as 1918 were being seized and burned by the US Postal Service as early as 1919. The publishers were arrested on October 4, 1920 and charged with obscenity for publishing the "Nausicaa" episode of Ulysses. The trial was held in February 1921, and a panel of three judges decided that the passages from the "Nausicaa" episode did indeed constitute obscenity. In 1933 Random House, which had the rights to publish the entire book in the United States, decided to bring a test case to challenge the de facto ban, so as to publish the work without fear of prosecution. It therefore made an arrangement to import the edition published in France, and to have a copy seized by the U.S. Customs Service when the ship carrying the work arrived. Although Customs had been told in advance of the anticipated arrival of the book, the local official declined to confiscate it, stating "everybody brings that in." He and his superior were finally convinced to seize the work. The United States Attorney then took seven months before deciding whether to proceed further. While the Assistant U.S. Attorney assigned to assess the work' obscenity felt that it was a "literary masterpiece," he also believed it to be obscene within the meaning of the law. The office therefore decided to take action against the work under the provisions of the Tariff Act of 1930, which allowed a district attorney to bring an action for forfeiture and destruction of imported works which were obscene. The book has attracted controversy and scrutiny, ranging from the 1921 obscenity trial in America to protracted textual "Joyce Wars". Ulysses' stream-of-consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose: full of puns, parodies, and allusions: as well as its rich characterisation and broad humour, have led it to be regarded as one of the greatest literary works. James Joyce died at 2:15 AM in Zurich, Switzerland of perforated duodenal ulcer at the age of 58.
Bloomsday is a commemoration and celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce, during which the events of his novel Ulysses (which is set on June 16, 1904) are relived. It is observed annually on June 16 in Dublin and elsewhere. Joyce chose the date as it was the date of his first outing with his wife-to-be, Nora Barnacle; they walked to the Dublin suburb of Ringsend, where Nora masturbated him. The name is derived from Leopold Bloom, the protagonist of Ulysses. The English compound word Bloomsday is usually used in Irish as well, though some publications call it La Bloom.
