Dubliners (Macmillan Collector's Library)
|Series:||Macmillan Collector's Library|
James Joyce was born in 1882. He came from a reasonably wealthy Dublin family which, predominantly because of Joyce's father John, was soon plunged into financial hardship. The young Joyce attended Clongowes College, Belvedere College and, eventually, University College, Dublin. In 1904 he met Nora Barnacle, and eloped with her to Croatia. From this point on, Joyce lived as an exile, moving from Trieste to Rome, and then to Zurich and Paris. His major works are Dubliners (1914), A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916), Ulysses (1922) and Finnegans Wake (1939). He died in 1941, by which time he had come to be regarded as one of the world's greatest novelists.
