James Joyce : a literary life by Morris Beja( Book )

68 editions published between 1973 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,325 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
