Joyce's Irish experiences constitute an essential element of his writings, and provide all of the settings for his fiction and much of their subject matter. His early volume of short stories, Dubliners, is a penetrating analysis of the stagnation and paralysis of Dublin society. The final and most famous story in the collection, "The Dead,­" was made into a feature film in 1987, directed by John Huston (it was Huston's last major work).-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (2 February 1882 – 13 January 1941) was an Irish novelist and poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-­garde of the early 20th century. Joyce is best known for Ulysses (1922), a landmark work in which the episodes of Homer's Odyssey are paralleled in an array of contrasting literary styles, perhaps most prominent among these the stream of consciousness technique he perfected. Other major works are the short-­story collection Dubliners (1914), and the novel A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916).

Exiles is a play by James Joyce, who is principally remembered for his novels. It draws on the story of "The Dead", the final short story in Joyce's first major work, Dubliners, and was rejected by W. B. Yeats for production by the Abbey Theatre. It first major London performance was in 1970, when Harold Pinter directed it at the Mermaid Theatre.­In terms of both its critical and popular reception, it has proven the least successful of all Joyce's published works - only Chamber Music runs it close. In making his case for the defence of the play, Padraic Colum conceded: "...­critics have recorded their feeling that [Exiles] has not the enchantment of Portrait of the Artist nor the richness of [Ulysses]... They have noted that Exiles has the shape of an Ibsen play and have discounted it as being the derivative work of a young admirer of the great Scandinavian dramatist.­"-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

»Finn’s Hotel«, so hieß das Hotel, in dem Nora Barnacle, die spätere Ehefrau von James Joyce, als Zimmermädchen arbeitete. Ganz am Anfang der Überlegungen, aus denen »Finnegans Wake« hervorgehen sollte, fragte sich Joyce: Wie wäre es, wenn man Irlands Vergangenheit in den Träumen des am Ufer der Liffey schlafenden mythischen Helden Finn McCool Revue passieren ließe?

Das Buch »Finn’s Hotel« besteht aus einer Folge von Fabeln, kurzen, prägnanten Prosatexten zu den entscheidenden Momenten der irischen Geschichte, beginnend mit der Ankunft St. Patricks auf der Grünen Insel im Jahr 432: des Heiligen, der Irland bekehrt? Nein, Irland bekehrt ihn – zu allem, was irisch ist. Joyce schrieb die zehn Episoden 1923, ein halbes Jahr, nachdem er sich vom »Ulysses« befreit und lange bevor er einen genaueren Plan für »Finnegans Wake« gefasst hatte.

Finnegans Wake – the last word in literary fiction – a spell-­binding use of language – a dazzling virtuoso display of the plasticity, depth and humour of the English language – not for the literary faint-­hearted! But what’s it all about?
“ What Joyce is doing, then is to make his hero relive the whole of history in a night’s sleep. The history is not what we learned at school—a chronological treadmill of kings and ministers and wars and revolutions. It is rather a special way of looking at history—less a parade of historical facts than a pattern that seeks to explain those facts. The pattern is loosely derived from the Italian philosopher Giovanni Battista Vico (1668-­1744), who wrote an important book called La Scienza Nuova, in which he presented history not as a straight line but as a circular process of recurrences. If we say that Finnegans Wake is based on this book we shall be right, but only in the sense that we are right when we say that the same author’s Ulysses is based . . .

Finnegans Wake is a novel by Irish author James Joyce, significant as one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language. The entire book is written in a largely idiosyncratic language, consisting of a mixture of standard English lexical items and neologistic multilingual puns and portmanteau words, which many critics believe attempts to recreate the experience of sleep and dreams. Owing to the work's expansive linguistic experiments, stream of consciousness writing style, literary allusions, free dream associations, and its abandonment of the conventions of plot and character construction, Finnegans Wake remains largely unread.

Written in Paris over a period of seventeen years, and published in 1939, two years before the author's death, Finnegans Wake was Joyce's final work.
