Description
Information
'James Joyce: A Passionate Exile' is a revealing new account of the life, times and writings of this century's most distinguished novelist. Combining words with an extraordinary collection of contemporary photographs and other images, it depicts his family's fall from riches to rags and his experience of growing up in late nineteenth century Dublin. Author and Joyce scholar, John McCourt, also examines Joyce's relationship with his life-long partner, Nora Barnacle, and casts new light on their 40-year voluntary exile in Europe, first in the cosmopolitan Adriatic port of Trieste, then in lively wartime Zurich and finally in Paris, the artistic centre of the world in the 20s and 30s. Exile from Ireland was a necessary condition for Joyce to forge in the smithy of his soul the uncreated conscience of his rice in his magnificent short story collection 'Dubliners', in his intense bildungsroman 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man' and in his modern epic 'Ulysses', which has been elected the finest novel of the century.
