James Joyce (1882-1941) was born and educated in Dublin. His first collection of short stories was published in 1904 and was met with great praise in Ireland and abroad. Whilst living in Paris, he wrote Ulysses which quickly established Joyce as one of the most influential authors of the 20th century. Every year on 16 June, Joyceans across the globe celebrate Bloomsday, the day on which the action of Ulysses took place, proving Joyce’s importance to literature.
