James Joyce - Page Text Content

BC: He is not my favorite author but I have a deep respect and admiration for his work.

FC: "Think you are escaping and run into yourself . Longest way round is the shortest way home". | James Joyce

1: The first time I read Joyce was in college and I have grown to love his literature. It was not love at first sight but it defitnely stayed with me for life.

2: "Mistakes are portals of discovery"

3: James Augustine Aloysius Joyce was born on February 2, 1882 . | 3 things were fundamental in Joyce's life: * His drinking problem. * His self imposed exile to Zurich *His battle between live the life his parents had planned or live life as an artist.

4: Most people consider Ulisses his ultimate master piece. It is indeed a wonderful book.

5: My favorite book, however, is The Portrait of the artist as a young man. It was actually ranked as the third most important books of the twentieth century. The techniques used are widely considered ground-breaking works of fiction which not only fundamentally redefined the novel as a genre, but pushed the limits of the English language itself

6: "Shut your eyes and see." James Joyce

7: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is often considered a portrayal of the author's early life. The novel is at once a portrayal of the maturation of the artist, a study of the vanity of rebelliousness, and an examination of the self-deception of adolescent ego. It is beautiful to see how the language evolves as the character grows older.
