James Joyce : a literary life by Morris Beja ( Book )
61 editions published between 1973 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,332 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

This volume collects the best essays from the 1992 International James Joyce Symposium held in Dublin, which had as its title "In the Heart of the Hibernian Metropolis." Dublin, of course, has special attraction for Joyceans as both the source and subject matter of Joyce's genius, but the essays reproduced here reflect - like the symposium itself - the newest and most exciting trends in Joyce scholarship from around the world. The volume includes an introductory essay by the president of the Republic of Ireland, Mary Robinson. The thirty essays that follow were selected from those delivered at nearly 120 different sessions. Faced with so many possibilities, the editors have produced a book that reflects the flavor and intellectual range of the world of Joyce studies as we head toward the end of the century - Joyce's century
