James Joyce

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce was born on February 2, 1882 in Dublin, Ireland and died on January 13, 1941. He was a world renowned Irish author or Ulysses (1922) and Dubliners (1914).

«For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I can get to the heart of all the cities of the world. In the particular is contained the universal.»

We will be reading one of Joyce’s best short stories, «The Dead». One editor wrote that «The Dead» is «one of the most powerful evocations of human loss and longing that the English language possesses» (Everyman’s Library).
