James Joyce : a literary life by Morris Beja( Book )
16 editions published between 1973 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Morris Beja's concise yet thorough biography of James Joyce fills a void in Joycean studies by offering students and general readers a short, readable account of the great writer's life, concentrating on Joyce's sense of himself as an artist and on the ways in which he drew upon his life in weaving his fictions." "James Joyce, arguably the most influential twentieth-century writer in any language, and certainly one of the major figures in world literature, led a fascinating life, triumphant and sad, constantly battling both self-created problems and those forced upon him. He began his life within an affluent family and saw it decline into poverty and debt. As a youth he was popular, yet found himself feeling increasingly isolated from his contemporaries. He gave himself to his art with fanatic devotion, but upon achieving the status of a notable force in literature, he had to endure agonies in his private life - including a daughter with severe mental illness and a son without a career or sense of direction." "Beja demonstrates that the more we have learned about the smallest details of Joyce's life, the more we have come to see correspondences between his life and his art. Beja traces these correspondences throughout the canon and chronicles the ways in which Joyce's confidence in his art and his genius led to his triumph as a writer." "This insightful biography will interest any students, general readers, and scholars seeking an accessible account of Joyce's life and work."--Jacket

Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf( Book )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Virginia Woolf's fourth novel, Mrs. Dalloway, was first published in 1925. A work for which she felt she had 'almost too many ideas', it was easily her most ambitious experiment to date, both in terms of form and of psychological representation. The resulting account of a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway (and of the tragic suicide of 'double', Septimus Warren Smith), remains, with To the Lighthouse (1927), one of Virginia Woolf's two most widely read novels
